Senka (446) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 14, 2014
50cl bottle. Decent local ale. 4 out of 5 bottles were perfect. The last one made me rather sick. I suspect that the cork was not tight enough. Malty, beautiful beer with average carbonation, when comes from a good bottle.

Moebbels (303) - FINLAND - MAR 16, 2014
A clear light amber body with virtually no head. Nose is malty sweet with some mild resin notes. Taste is fairly sweet with a mildly dry finish. Carbonation is low and soft, palate is just above average. Well, its a pretty basic ale, easily drinkable and fine for hot summer days.

Clear golden amber with an off-white head. Sweet malty and hoppy. Some fruits and spice. notes of citrus. Medium carbonation. A little bitter finish.

kiwianer (3337) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 5, 2013
The head is medium, the body brown and clear. It smells aromatic, fruity. The taste is sweet, fruity, aromatic, tasty, balanced, bit hoppy. Ok 12/12/11/11/12/11

ectuohy27 (570) - ESTONIA - AUG 31, 2013
Not very piney (more of a psychological suggestion than a distinct aroma or flavor of pine), this wouldn’t be out of place in Oregon, for those who like the style. A bit maltier than what you’d expect from an American PA, and certainly a very distinctive hop profile (esp. for Estonia), finish is unusually bitter and quick though. [Rating adjusted downward on the hedonism scale]

agent_persik (385) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 20, 2013
Clear amber color, no head. Sweet fruity aroma of caramel malt, some fruits, honey and hops notes. Taste is mostly sweet with slight dryness in finish. Watery body and soft carbonation. Drinkable.

laiti (5623) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 17, 2013
50 cl bottle @ home. Batch #102: BBE 24.05.2013
Aroma has apricot, some pine needles, resin and hints of honey. Also some slight grainy notes in the background. Flavour has honey, corn, grainy notes, some pine needles, hints of caramel and biscuits. Some gooseberry bush in the finish. Closer to English than American pale ale. Becomes a bit sweet and sticky at the end of the glass. Not that bad one would expect from the earlier ratings.

lusikka (6201) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 17, 2013
500 ml bottle.
Pours a golden colour with a white foamy head. Aroma of mango, apricot and some caramel sweetness. Flavour of harsh maltiness, sweet fruits such as mango, some grassy hops, biscuit and weak floral notes. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and high carbonation. Finishes harsh and sweet with low bitterness. Decent.
