1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Tap (Kochi Ait, Tallinn)
Simple grainy aroma, a tough vegetal and almost sour. Again, a messy slightly unrefined vegetal, root vegetables, taste. Relatively clean for Viru, and lacking the iron and horrors that often come out of there. But still just a messy full-malt lager. Pretty pale, brief tight head. Palate a little watery, but not unpleasant. Hops very low in the mix. Finish a little porridgy. Nothing here to interest me.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear golden color, small white head. Grainy, sweetish, "unclean" aroma. Medium-bodied. Sweet malty, sweetcornish and grainy flavor. Quite low bitterness. Feels like Viru Õlu although waitress claimed that they brew it at the premises. I don’t think so.

Tap @Kochi Ait. Clear golden color. Medium white head, disappears quickly. Watery, malty, grains in aroma. Watery, malty, mild minerals in flavor. Boring.
