3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Drink Baar, Tallinn. Clear amber shade with a ring of head. Light gingery spice in the aroma. Taste is caramelly, malty, bready. There’s a dryness to it that helps drinkability. Body is notably robust even for the strength. Compares favourably to the Ayinger Oktoberfest I just had.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Liters at various pubs around Estonia. When it fresh - it is good and refreshing version of amber lager. Body varies heavily form medium thick to nonexistent. Hop palet is irregular, and malt is rather different from batch to batch. Still it is different and this worth a try. Ask barman for a sample - then get your pint.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Põrgu in Tallinn (€ 2,50 for 33 cl), August 2014. Clear dark amber / light mahagony, off-white small head - no lacing, doesn’t stay for long. Looks great against candlelight. Nose is candy-like, almost artificial caramel, killing off everything else; gets more malty later, something ashy too. Taste is caramelly, malty-grainy, with a very slight metallic aftertaste, and a modest spicy tingle. Light to medium body, mild carbonation; sticky, even syrupy palate. A slightly bitter, grainy and sugary, dry finish. Would not believe it to be 6,2 % ABV. Quite tasty.

Draft. Orane color, little bit hazy (only very little). Aroma of raisins, some herbal tones also. Sweet malty notes in taste, at finish more hoppy. Nice experience.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Drink bar, Tallinn. Clear amber with an off-white head. Caramely and malty aroma with hint of honey and fruits. Quite sweet and caramely with just a light bitterness in the finish. Ok, but too much on the sweet side for my taste.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught (6,1%) @ Drink Baar & Grill
Aroma is sweet and odd with berries, vanilla and caramel. Flavour has caramel, some raspberries and malty feeling in the finish. Not your typical Münchener and actually feels more like an ale. But somehow I like the berry notes here.
