Strong amber beer. In his taste is distinguished characteristic to light beer hop, and peculiar to dark beer caramel malt.

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 (7999) - 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 (1692) - 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 (6197) - 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.

I assume this is the one I’ve had draught at Dr!nk, Tallinn. Slighlty darker copper colour, small white head. Nice sweet yoghurty, grainy malty nose. Yoghurty grainy smooth soft taste, very light acidity, some sweetness, light bitter hoppy aftertaste. Nice enough and certainly a great change of pace after all those crappy Estonian macros and the Beer House varieties on the same theme.

larsga (7159) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 20, 2009
Medium offwhite head doesn’t last. Amber body with light carbonation. Sulphury papery caramel aroma with vinegary notes. Dry rubbery roasty straw taste with sulphury fruity notes. Disharmonic. Mid-bodied. Smoothish mouthfeel. Dry, faintly acidic, dusty rubbery vinegary aftertaste. Probably the first to get this on tap today. Not too terrible, even so. (0.5l draft, Õlletorn, Tallinn.)

UPDATED: APR 14, 2009 Draught at Kassisaba, Tallinn, on April 10, 2009
Clear copper to brownish color, tan head. Spicy, herbal, a bit acidic scent. Herbal, dry, spicy, sugary taste. Medium mouthfeel, medium low bitterness.

UPDATED: JAN 15, 2015 Keg (Õlletorn, Tallinn) - rating removed - not in good condition. Keg (Drink Baar, Tallinn)
6 Slightly sweet malty aroma, quite baltic and latvian maybe.
4 Rich clear red.
6 Slightly sweet malts, lovely fresh green aromatic hops.
4 Soft carbonation, softened by the sweetness, covers the alcohol.
13 This is what a munchner lager should be like, very full, finish is long and so fresh.
Rerate: Tap (Hell Hunt, Tallinn) (6:4:7:4:14+=3.5)
I’ve had this 100 times here. It’s my go-to beer. Drink local, I don’t need the fancy imports. Tonight was a great ona, so fresh, so bready, a superb munchen. Drinkability unsurpassable.3.3 was bollocks, this is a damn good brew, probably 3.6 at its best (and that’s on my scale, in the US or Pooland, that’s probably the equivalent of 4.6)
