0.5L bottle. Sweet fruity aroma. In taste is fermented apple juice with light hops and plum juice. In conclusion taste is like multinectar juice. Not really pleasant. Finish remainding like drink some lemon ice tea drink.

Noget mere humlet end jeg havde regnet med at en blonde ale. Mange smage af forskellige krydderier som er lidtsvære at skelne, ikke at det gør noget, tvær imod.

Note from 2013: Bottle 500 ml. Taste and aroma: fruity, orange and mango, caramel, a bit sweet, not bad.

From the very old notes, hence this is not a real rating, but more just a mark to myself that I have tried this at one point. Rather typical viru õlu, not really hoppy as name would suggest, but I didn’t mind it at the time. Maybe I got a good bottle or was just n00b :)

Senka (1042) - 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 (676) - 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.

Niller (1355) - Hammel, DENMARK - FEB 17, 2014
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 (3428) - 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 (996) - 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 (663) - 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.
