Enjoyed a sample of this beer from a trumpet glass on tap at Porgu in Tallinn, Estonia. The beer had a darker gold color with a slightly amber hue and a foamy white head that was good-sized with average retention, cling, and lacing. The aroma featured floral and earthy hops with some lively straw and yeast notes. The taste was a sour-bitter blend with grainy and floral notes and a bit of straw. The beer was mostly wet and watery with low carbonation and an average thick mouthfeel.

laiti (7744) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 23, 2013
Draught @ Põrgu. Rated on 21.12.2013
Served in snifter, wtf?
Aroma is odd with honey, apricot, grain and gluey notes. Flavour has metal, apricot, chlorine, grain and honey. Not the most typical Helles and too much metal here.

visionthing (3887) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 11, 2013
50cl on tap at Krunk, Sillamäe. Clear golden with a white head. Malty aroma with fruits, honey and some floral notes. Hints of caramel too. Fairly sweet with a light almost citrusy bitterness in the finish. Medium body with a slightly soft carbonation. Quite nice, far better than the usual pale lagers here.

thirstyrabbit (1537) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 19, 2013
From keg to PET bottle (Elav Õlu in Laagri). Shiny golden body with a white rocky head. Fresh bready aroma with some honey and biscuits. Rich malty taste with some cookie dough. Sweetish finish with medium hops. Tasty and smooth. Good Helles. Perhaps the best Estonian lager?

Clean golden color, small white head. Malty aroma with some honey notes. Taste is sweet, lots of malt, some ,grain, honey and citrus, also a bit unpleasant notes of cardboard, dry and lightly bitter finish. Medium body and carbonation. Overall quite interesting and refreshing beer.

suurjuust (2039) - ESTONIA - AUG 12, 2012
Hazy golden straw, filmy white head. Nose is slightly moldy-dusty malts, some sweetness, butter. Taste has a lot of malt, aforementioned barnyardy dust and mold, some honeyish notes. Discreet carbonation, somewhat oily mouthfeel. Not great.
