Bart (2940) - Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 23, 2013
Draught @ Drink Baar, Tallinn. Darker amber coloured beer with lots of carbonation and a small to medium dencer off white head. Sweet malty hinted aroma with a short fruity touch. Full palate. Finish is sweet malty, slightly oxidated. Ok, but not to special.

kingstoni (1544) - FINLAND - NOV 7, 2012
Tap. Clear amber color with no head. Aroma of caramel, malt, honey and public toilet. Sweet taste of caramel and malt. Muddy sugary finish.

suurjuust (1101) - ESTONIA - JUL 17, 2012
Red-tinged amber, off-white creamy head. Nose has lots of caramel sweetness, malt and metallic notes. Taste is fairly sweet, malty caramel more metallic notes. Body is medium to thin, mouthfeel is fairly smooth. Slightly flawed, but very drinkable.

Glouglouburp (6078) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 11, 2012
In short: An amateurish amber beer with a few off flavors. Problematic
How: A few hand-bottles shared by FatPhil, filled directly in Estonia a consumed a few days later in lost village of Lithuania
The look: Almost clear amber body topped by a very small off-white head
In long: Nose is semi-toasted earthy hay and a tiny bit horsey. Taste is basic toasted cereals, a bit of caramel, a bit of honey, a weird wet leather sensation, a light fruity sourness. This felt very amateurish. Not good. At least I think this is what my drunken notes are saying, so now go wash you eyes cause I just pulled that rating out of my ass

TaktikMTL (5854) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 1, 2012
Bouteille de 500 ml avec bouchon de céramique. Merci à FatPhil. Arôme: Légère odeur de céréales et de caramel. Apparence: La couleur est cuivrée. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût de caramel avec une pointe de céréales. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement huileuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Légère présence de caramel en arrière goût. (Rating #4227)

Marduk (2800) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 6, 2012
Draught @Drink bar. Dark amber color. Small white head. Grain, malts, slight hints of honey in aroma. Sweet malts, caramel, honey, grain in taste.

MartinT (7956) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 11, 2012
My Bottom Line:
Toasted and caramelized cereals roam within this lager’s lean body, leading to an ever-so-slightly acidic, fruity finish.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy head of foam sits atop the hazy amber.
-The soft effervescence and slender sugars make for high drinkability.
-The light fruitiness in the finish is awkward.
-This was not really memorable, nor was it too well executed, imho.

Bottle. Thx for the opportunity, Phil and Anna!

JoeMcPhee (8510) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 25, 2011
Tap at Drink Baar. Deep amber pour with a tight white head. The aroma is softly sweet with a little bit of light toffee. Some chewiness along with a bit of sweet toasted malt. Clean and a little bit chewy. It’s a decent dark lager.

omhper (19671) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 7, 2011
Draught at Drink Baar, Tallinn. Clear amber, small head. Sweet and rather heavy with clean, rounded mouthfeel. Peppery and heavily caramelly with low bitterness. Well made, but more big than drinkable.

tomclay (7) - - JUN 8, 2011 does not count
Sweet orange colour with pale head, smells of orange/ cherry/ citrus, taste very cherry & hoppy, despite the colour seems rather light
