"This rich amber beer is brewed with only the finest English ingredients. A prominent hop aroma and bitterness throughout is finely balanced with a full malt flavour, leading to a dry bitter finish."

Amber pour with under a finger of white bubbly head. Sweet aroma, bit of flowery hops. Taste is fruity, sweet, bit of astringency. Overall not my favorite taste but not awful.

Kauge (1530) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 14, 2014
Bottle from a Selver in Tallinn, Sept 2014. Pours a dark, near clear copper with a big creamy head that retains and laces well. Aroma is good grassy, earthy, woody hops, sweet caramel, and near-putrid autumn fruits. Sweet malty and dried apple taste that builds up to grassy bitter with some nice toffee and biscuit notes. Lingering, slightly spicy, dry and metallic bitterness in the finish. Medium body, near average carbonation, palate on the dry side. Quite nice!

Caramel aroma. Dark amber appearance. Quite clear but with a subtle tinge. Bitter flavour but a smooth palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Senka (1046) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 4, 2014
50cl bottle. Been drinking this for ages, strangely have not recorded rating. Pours clear amber, with thin head. Beautiful lacing nonetheless. Aroma of cask, vanilla, caramel and sugar. More sweet than bitter. Close to medium body, thin carbonation. Best when served at 6-7degC. Not a pretentious beer, but a well brewed and balanced sweet sided bitter.
