Nocturne (1784) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2014
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.

Senka (1055) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 8, 2014
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.

Kauge (1580) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 17, 2014
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.
