2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
A - Clear, dull straw yellow color with a small, bubbly white head that disappears almost instantly with no lacing left behind.
S - Smells like slightly off grain and husks. Just a hint of corn/adjunct smell toward the end.
T - Pretty close to the smell. It has a slightly off grain and husk taste with a bit of a metallic aspect to it. Somewhat sweet malt taste comes out with it tasting slightly like corn, but not extremely adjunct/corn tasting. Very faint hop bite mid sip that fades fast.
M - Light body with a bit below average carbonation for the style. It has a little zesty/bubbly feel but is mostly just watery.
D - Similar to a number of mass produced and easy to drink beers. Taste has a slight off/different taste that can make it a bit more interesting to drink, but not enough for me to really want to drink it.
Notes: Pretty much a typical mass produced, easy to drink, low on flavor kind of beer just in a neat looking bottle and from Estonia. Had a slightly off and metallic taste that wasn’t necessarily good or bad, just different. Not really worth seeking out, unless you want to try a beer from Estonia or want the bottle.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at the Prince of Wales, Wimbledon, 13th May 2010 (BeerTart’s leaving drinks). Bought solely for the interesting bottle. It was the last bottle in the pub and none of the bar staff had any idea what it was! Slightly hazy yellow with a thick white head. Nice nose - dough, fresh linen. Soft, light palate for the strength. Unfortunately, it severely lack flavour. The bottle looks great but the beer needs to make more impact in the mouth!

This beer is just proof that a product’s marketing greatly influences a purchase. When I was looking for beer to try at Gene’s Sausage Shop in Chicago, of course I was interested in this one due to the bottle shape. Aroma is of a standard crappy lager, appearance is one of the lightest yellow’s I’ve seen. Taste wise, it’s not very good but not bad. I’m glad I got it once.

I’ll admit it, I bought it because of the bottle shape. It’s just a standard lager. No real smell or taste. A bubbly golden feel with a golden color. Some bitter and hops. A notch.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Estonian premium beer, brewed by a Belgian. Easy drinking but unexciting lager with a vanilla taste (apparently).
