3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at the Windows London Hilton. Pours an effervescent yellow with a foamy, white head. Cereal aroma. Sweet flavor, some straw, grain and cereal. Light bodied with lively carbonation. Some bready malts to finish, slight hay and slighter metal, more cereal. Not bad, really.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Viru has a thin, white head and a cloudy, straw appearance with some bubbles streaming up and no lacing. The aroma is bready and yeasty, and the taste is likewise bready with quite low hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Viru finishes refreshing and semi-dry. Overall, this is good and worth a sample.

Strange and interesting bottle which contains a slightly,albeit very slightly above average lager.Strange bitterness that leaves a very unusual aftertaste.Low carbonisation makes it easy to drink but thats albout all I can say.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Grainy barley and wheat. Clear yellow thin white head. Medium body. Honey and grain. Wheat bread finish. I’m really digging on the bready sweetness. Is it exceptional? No, but this is a quality beer from a lackluster style. Well worth the elusive Estonia tick.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
One of the fluffiest heads I’ve seen on a pale lager. two to three fingers high, pale golden with fine carbonation. Aroma and taste are mildly malt with some citrus notes. Not much lasting flavor, but a very decent lighter beer.

Now this is some kind of fancy bottle! Not a bad beer either. Probably if not for the fact that I am seeing sugar listed up there under ingredients, this could possibly fall into the Pilsener category. I dunno if there’s been any experimentation into this area but I’d imagine if this had been called a pils, it would be rated somewhat higher. Damn anti-pale-lager bias! Regardless, this pours a nice golden color w/ a foamy head that lasts at about a quarter inch thickness for the whole glass. This may well be the result of chemical foaming agents or something but darned if it doesn’t look nice. Grassy, noble-hop nose and a bit of bready grain character. Very slightly sweet w/ a quick finish and only a very mild hop bitterness. Medium carbonation, light bodied and very lightly tart. This is a mild lager but it is by no means flavorless. My bottle tasted very fresh and was quite enjoyable, certainly a step up from most American macros or the dusty bottles of German pils you see at too many liquor stores.
