larsga (6893) - 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.)

SaintMatty (6131) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - NOV 11, 2007
Draught in Õlletorn, Tallinn- Copper in colour. The aroma is fruity and malty with some light caramel. The taste is malty with an appealing fruitiness. Pleasant aftertaste. It does not taste as strong as 6.5% and is very drinkable. Not a bad beer.

Glouglouburp (6103) - 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

mjs (5614) - 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.

sayravai (4700) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 22, 2005
(Draught@Olletorn, Tallinn) Clear amber color with a large, slightly tanned head. Very strong rotten eggs aroma with some caramely maltiness (do they wash the taps at all?). Fruity, burned sugar flavor with marshmellows. Light to medium-bodied, slightly sharp-carbonated and sticky-sugary palate. A quite disgusting brew - at least from this tap.

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.
