omhper (21894) - 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.

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.

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)

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.

MartinT (8736) - 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!

kermis (8085) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 24, 2011
On tap at Dr!nk, Tallinn. Nasty aroma, but caramel aftertaste is reasonably pleasant. Not too bad

DruncanVeasey (7881) - NUNEATON, TOP, 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.

laiti (7744) - 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.
