Can 500ml (Stockmann Tallinn) as "Big Mug Amber"FatPhil (16367) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 8, 2012
Pale yellow color, mostly vanishing white head. Light grainy and cardboardish aroma. LIght to medium-bodied. Sweet honeyish, kind of cidery flavor. Oily palate. Short finish. Not terrible, but nothing to drink another time.
500ml can (Stockmann, Tallinn) - shared by Tbone - thanks!DSG (14921) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 27, 2012
Pale. Apple retronasals. Simple malts, thin body. Extracty hops, very thin no aromaticity, a little metallic. ALmost clean, definitely boring, and not very good.
Can. As "Big Mug Amber Beer". Clear golden with a small, quickly-dissipating white head. Aroma has some graininess, light corny hints, a bit of malt, hay and light hoppiness with faint metallic hints. Flavor starts with light sweetness, with a bit of grainy and corny notes, and continues drier with some bitterness in the finish. Light-bodied. Pretty clean and not too offensive, but still not so fun to drink. thirstyrabbit (1849) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 19, 2012
0,5l can as "Big Mug Amber", redirecting here. Typical light golden lager body. The big bottle version must be something different, because this is certainly nothing close to "dark" as other reviewers have described it. Light grainy and citric aroma. Taste is clean and neutral. Low on hops. Doesn’t have much taste and is therefore pretty drinkable. MacBoost (1914) - Victor, New York, USA - SEP 30, 2011
Industrial lager smell. Corn, adjuncts, sugar in the nose. Pours a pale yellow with no head. Tastes like every other industrial lager from eastern europe. Shitty. Worthless. This is one of the worst beers i’ve ever had.

500ml bottle. Big Mug Amber.
Pours a pale gold, not amber with a fizzy white head that dissipates with no lacing.
The smell is nearly nonexistent besides a hint of malt.
the flavor is paper, vegetable, malt, and a hint of herbal hops. Not very good.
Glad it was only 99 cents because it is worth jsut a bit less.

Label said "Big Mug Amber". 51 ounce plastic bottle for $2.49 (but I’ve seen it on sale for $1.99). Pours a slightly dark amber. Head is rich, thick, and slightly off white. But it dies fairly quickly. Smells sweet like a caramel sticky bun. Flavor is of caramel. Not as much malt as I expected and little hops. It’s also low on the alcohol content. Incredibly smooth!!The flavor has a quick finish with very little aftertaste. It has the mouth feel of a light beer.But overall this is very easy drinking. I’d put this up against any of the macro light beers on the market. heemer77 (5358) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JUL 4, 2011
Sampled as big Mug Amber in a 1.5l bottle. The body was rich caramel brown with a thin patchy white head. The nose was sweet caramel with some nutty almonds. The taste has some rich peanuts and caramel. There is also a brown sugar sweetness. This is like a vienna to me. ectuohy27 (1191) - ESTONIA - JUL 1, 2011
supremely drinkable, rather smooth palate, low carbonation, quickly-dissipating head, really cheap ($2.69 for an 85 ounce [2.5 L] bottle). Basically it’s caramel soda to share w/friends (Brighton Beach) CanIHave4Beers (4188) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - MAR 14, 2011
From a big plastic bottle marked "Big Mug Amber" Pours a bright orange color, which reminds me that it’s not only here in the US that the word "Amber" gets thrown around with reckless abandon. The head on the beer is very loose and doesn’t stick around very long. The aroma is malty sweet and has some alcohol, but it’s not really offensive, just boring and a little weird. The flavor is similar to the aroma, malty sweet with just a light zing of hops, some grainy flavors along with some cornflake corny sweetness that seems to be the focus of this beer. It’s really actually very easy to drink and I can see where the appeal would exist for a bright colored sweet smooth pale lager. It’s not really for me though.
