3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
swing-top bottle, courtesy of FatPhil - thanks a lot! Clear eggyolk-yellow colour, small white head. Sourish-yeasty-fruity aroma with a wild character, reminding me of gueuze. Light- to medium-bodied, grainy-biscuity malty base with lots of barnyard flavours and fruity hints. Shy hoppy flavours are detectable. This beer has a rather wild character, it’s unlike any other pale lager I have tasted. Fruity flavours go well with barnyard and the biscuit-like maltiness. The carbonation is just per5fect, smooth and fine. An interesting, very unusual and very delicious beer.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clean golden color, small white head. Light sweet malty aroma with. Taste is sweet too, with malt, caramel, yeast, some bread and honey and quite strong alcoholic lightly bitter finish. Watery body and medium carbonation. Does not taste like regular pale lager, more like Vienna style. Overall nothing special but drinkable.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
500ml bottle from Tallinn. Clear deep gold colour, small fizzy white mostly vanishing head, fair lacing. Moderately malty aroma of grain and nuts and light floral hops. Taste is initiallyslightly sweet and acidic, turning into a light bittersweet finish with an acetic feel. Medium body, oily mouthfeel, lively carbonation. A fairly pleasant lager, nothing Earth-shattering and a bit low on the hops but one of the better mass-produced Estonian lagers I tried.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Plastic bottle (Thanks TM). Golden colour, not too much head. Aroma is biscuits, bready malts, some mild notes of grains and rubber. Flavour is quite much the same, as well as some strange sweetish starch/maizelike notes lurking as well.
