UPDATED: AUG 19, 2016 My Bottom Line:
This textbook malty lager showcases toasted bread aromas and flavors all the way, with barely a few raisiny touches underneath.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam surrounds the deep copper.
-Flavor profile is very clean.
-Drinkability is very high.
-Sweetness is kept in check.
-Hops are, at most, an afterthought.

On tap at Porgu, Tallinn.

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 (23430) - 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.

Sweet orange colour with pale head, smells of orange/ cherry/ citrus, taste very cherry & hoppy, despite the colour seems rather light

On tap at Dr!nk, Tallinn. Nasty aroma, but caramel aftertaste is reasonably pleasant. Not too bad

A better Munchener that you are likely to find in Munich but maybe that does not say much. Sweet malt with that annoying but perfectly correct dab of maple syrup in the background.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2011
Draught at Hell Hunt, Tallinn. Red amber with a fine white lid. Beeswax aroma. Sweet, caramel and corn-accented with a slight edge of acidity and maybe oak. Barrels and caramel; tang of iron. Reminds me of Rodenbach. Digestives and cream afters. Can’t detect any alcohol. Decent drop.

thirstyrabbit (1740) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 15, 2010
Draught at Drink (Tallinn). Coppery red colour. Sweet malty aroma. The taste is full and rich with plenty of caramel and notes of honey and biscuit. Well balanced tasty brew.

mjs (6459) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 18, 2010
(Draught at Drink, Tallinn) I had this twice on two different days from two different kegs. The first one was a diacetyl bomb but the second one was in proper condition. Poured dark copper coloured and almost clear with medium sized and white head. Aroma contained malts and grass. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, grass, mildly caramell, bitterness and mildly butter. Aftertas was malty and bitter.
