Buttery metallic papery aroma with caramelly spicy notes.
Dry-sweet fruity perfumy buttery taste with syrupy cardamom
notes. Mid-to-light body. Mild, soft, smooth mouthfeel. Dryish

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Finally, a good beer from Saku. Sweet red caramel appearance, aroma, and mid-taste reminds me of Old Speckled Hen, which has to be the model for this one, even if its hoppy finish is more industrial EE than British. Nice change of pace for Estonian beer, hoping for more good things as the tour continues
