Tranquillity (1410) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 5, 2006
0,5l bottle. Pale golden colour, not much of a head. Smells a bit less of yeast than a typical Finnish bad lager (if you haven’t tried a Typical Finnish bad lager, don’t do it). The beer is a bit watery, but in the middle there is some chemical taste and a quite strong bitter sting at the end. I can see why the Pole likes it ;)

TheJester (1860) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 3, 2006
500 mL bottle. Yellow. Active head disappears almost instantly. Weak grassy/malty aroma. Very heavily carbonated. Thin/metallic mouthfeel. Crisp. Not much taste. Corn. Aftertaste is distinctive for having no taste. Hope they have something else to drink over there.

yngwie (13346) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 14, 2006
Can. Pours pale golden, topped by a dense white head. Very weak aroma with malt, grain and some hops. Weak flavor too, with malt and hops. Thin body and a finish with some floral notes. Boooring. (060824)

gilvanblight (772) - Windsor, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 11, 2006
Golden pour with a soapy head. Strong scent with lots of hops and some caramel. Tons of flavour in this one, very sweet caramels with friuts or berries. Odd tart aftertaste that sticks to the tongue. The swetness in this is way overpowering and really kills this beer. Overcarbonation adds to the displeasure.

roder60 (1283) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 6, 2006
Poured a pale yellow color with some fizzy white head. Aroma metallic with some sweet grass scents. Flavor metallic and sweet corny. Overall, not my favorite.

Nice beer; it’s everywhere in Estonia. Slight hops notes, not alcoholic, somewhat dry finish. Refreshing, not bad.

radiomgb (2236) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 25, 2006
Bottle. Very light yellow in colour, very quickly dissipating white head. The aroma is sweet, grainy malts, some corn. The flavour was a carbon copy of the aroma, bitter mouthfeel, light body, medium carbonation. Finishes quick and thin.

TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 21, 2006
sweet malty aroma, cornish. Pours a light golden yellow, no head. Corn follows through in the flavour. Flat boring finish. I’m guessing not Estonia’s signature beer.
