Ingredients: Water (from one of Europe’s deepest wells); Malted Barley (Lithuanian); Sugar; Saaz Hops; Yeast.
‘Viru’ (pronounced ‘veer-roo’) is becoming a well known Baltic states’ beer export. Brewed in the university town of Tartu, Viru is packaged in a octahedral bottle designed over 100 years ago, and thought to be based on the churches and towers of old Tallinn, capital of Estonia.

good thirst-quencher but not high on flavor. good for the bbq and fish fry and a great eye-catching bottle.

UPDATED: OCT 9, 2012 L’odore e il sapore sono quelli di ragů congelato, che non č certo il sapore che vai a cercare in una birra.

Pours a very pale gold with a thin white head. Aroma is almost nonexistent. Taste is some sweet maltiness. Drinkable.

There isn’t anything really "bad" about the beer, unless, by bad you’d mean without any character. There are no foul characteristics, but there’s not much flavor, aroma, or palate. The head is white and almost disappears quickly with no head. Color is a clear yellow. Aroma is faint world beer. Flavor is the same. Body isn’t totally gone, but there isn’t much. Hardly any finish. Forgettable except for the bottle.

Very nice 30cl octahedral bottle. Pours a lemon yellow colour with a thin white head. Bready yeast aroma with flavours of bread, caramel and barley. Mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel.

Unique 330 ml bottle pours a pale golden color with a quick dissipating white head that leaves no lace. Aroma is cheap grains and malts. Taste is light malty sweetness and an undesirable hop bitterness. Only appeal to this one is the bottle itself.

Pours a clear yellow with a small white head. Aroma is malty, cardboard with some grain. Taste is also sweet malty with some grain leading to an ultra lightly bitter but dry finish from saaz hops. Pretty ordinary but inoffensive and a great bottle.

10.1 ounce bottle. Pours a pale clear yellow with a decent white head. Aroma of malt and grain. Taste is grain, malt, and a hint of hops. Light body. Not offensive. Nice bottle.
