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

Kauge (94) - 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.

visionthing (2677) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 10, 2013
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.

laiti (5626) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 19, 2013
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.

Clear reddish amber color, minimal head. Malty aroma with notes of honey. Sweet taste of malt, caramel, some fruits, honey, grain and bread, lightly bitter and dry finish. Medium body and fizzy carbonation. Nice and enjoyable beer.
