3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The head is ok. It smells sweet-hoppy. The taste is sweet, hoppy, hoparomatic, bit fruity, flowery, nice! This Pale Ale is different to the english ones, but i liked it very much, it was my "all time beer" during my time in Tallinn. 11/12/11/11/12/12

Bottle. Light copper color, small white head. Aroma is something different, pine, lemon, fruits, sour. Malty body, sour notes, lemon, pine needles. Definitely different, points for that.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
A fairly poor imitation of a style I don’t like anyway :) It’s too thin, unbalanced, and watery for the type (despite the 5.2% abv); some candied sweetness on the foretaste, rusty hoppiness throughout

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
0.5 l bottle, thanks hanniku! Copper color. Sweet aromas of caramel, resins and pepper. Caramelly and bready flavor with some breadiness and malt husks. Medium bitterness which is not very soft. Medium body. Tastes like half English pale and half bready lager.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
This is not a good example of English Pale Ale, but one of the good ones that brewed locally in Baltic states. If you want to compare it to UK, you will be disappointed. Good with roast lamb/pork on a weekend brunch.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Amber body, short white foam. Floral aroma. Taste was little bit sweet ( taste was like Puls Märzen), there was also some hops. I must say again: like mixture of common Puls brew and ingredients for home made ale.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I have a feeling that this could be a half way decent beer, but the decent part is buried under the trademark Viru rubbery-metallic harsh grains. Somewhat drinkable when cold, but as it warms up, the Viru-nasty begins dominating the taste.
