visionthing (2585) - 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.

radiomgb (2200) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 27, 2006
Draught at the <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/Place/estonia/ target=blank>Õlletorn in Tallinn, Estonia. Orange-amber in colour, long lasting white head, some lacing. The aroma is of sweet malts, cookies, caramel, earthy, nutty. The flavour has traces of citrus, earthy and quite malts, some caramel, light sweetness. Creamy mouthfeel, medium body, medium/high carbonation. Finishes with a light bitterness, yeasty. Interesting beer, the setting really seemed to help this one. Balanced, not boring. I seemed to like this one more then the others.

thirstyrabbit (1065) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 15, 2010

suurjuust (964) - ESTONIA - JUL 17, 2012
Red-tinged amber, off-white creamy head. Nose has lots of caramel sweetness, malt and metallic notes. Taste is fairly sweet, malty caramel more metallic notes. Body is medium to thin, mouthfeel is fairly smooth. Slightly flawed, but very drinkable.

Gazza (726) - Worcester, Worcestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2005
Draught in Bierstube, Tallinn. Deep brassy red colour with a nutty malt aroma and taste with some wininess and nutty malt. Good flavour, maybe the best Estonian beer...? (apart from the Baltic Porters, obviously... and some of them are crap too!)

Tap @ Drink Baar. Appearance is amber-red with light tan head. The head doesn’t stay. The aroma is strong caramel, malt and grass. Taste is caramel, malt, very sweet. Finish is very mild bitter. Overall: not bad, but also not special.

Pernille (518) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 14, 2005
(Draft at the only place in sillamäe that serves the beer: Peetros Pizzeria). Finding and drinking this beer was so much fun, that it probably affected my rating in a positive way. Anyway, to me, this was very good beer. A nice 1 inch head and a copper color. Malty aroma with a hint of alcohol and a dry flavor. A little bit like strawberry, says Martin. Palate needs some tlc.
