3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle (BioMarket, Tallinn)
6 Slightly sweet grainy aroma, not really jumping out of the glass.
4 Very deep red, small tight beige head.
6 Slightly eco-ey muddy grain taste. Leafy and undergrowthy. However, there’s also something almost chocolatey too it too.
4 Medium palate, has both sugary and watery components, crisp carbonation. Dry nuttiness and a pleasant roast after swallowing. A little bitter tingle too from the hops.
13 Let this sucker warm up, don’t drink straight from the fridge. The heavier flavours just won’t come through cold.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle… Clear, beautiful copper lager with a small, creamy, off-white head. Good retention. The nose reveals toasted grains, peppery hops, light caramel and a whisper of earthy tree bark. Medium-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and tingly carbonation. The flavor doesn’t suggest much more than moderately sweet toasted malts. Finishes earthy, lightly sweet, and then dry.
