2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml bottle (BioMarket Kaubamaja, Tallinn)
5 A bit of cat piss on opening, but pours with a bready aroma, slightly weetabixy grains.
2- Clear glass bottle, get’s the obligatory punishment, has a pleasantly tight head which saves it from the 1.
6- Lovely pinenutty malts for retronasals. Realy weetabixy grainy taste, bready too, like an LA (the bready variety, not the disgusting pilser variety) that’s trying to make up for the lack of alcohol, but apparently this is a proper full-fat beer. Buuuut, saying that, there’s no hint of alcohol in this. Great glugger on a hot day.
3+ Crisp palate, pleasant carbonation. Finish starts bready, but continues with a lovely floral hop resin. Gentle, but distinct. Late finish is the more metallic aspects of that resin, but it’s not an unpleasant metallicness. Late late finish goes back to weetabix again.
11 I think we have a new 2.7 benchmark beer. I’m going to have a Zlaty Bazant which was my previous 2.7 benchmark.

It is light golden with a white, creamy head. The aroma has notes of malt, flower, light cabbage and nectar. The flavour has a light sweetness and notes of flower, malt and it’s not big, but rather uncomplicated.

Bottle: Golden coloured, slowly diminishing lacing white head; grainy, papery, a bit metallic (iron) nose with some bitterness in the wings; sweetish (grainy, almost nutty ) flavour, very light bodied; sweet, grainy, light bitter finish. Bland, even though brewed by a First Class Brewery. Money for nothing......
