FatPhil (16953) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 26, 2017
330ml bottle (Ales By Mail) (6:4:5-:3-:10=2.8-)
Nice sweet vanillaey malt aroma. Rich gold, huge persistent tight head. Bland malty taste, some fruity esters. Gentle hopping, a little bit of pepper tingle. Watery sweet palate, a bit dead. Finish a touch resiny, but unclean stale hops, like they're oxidised.

Marduk (8219) - Reval, ESTONIA - SEP 26, 2017
330ml bottle (thanks FatPhil). Hazy amber color. Huge size, thick white head. Grainy, metallic, some faint citrusy hops in aroma. Sweet, grainy, citrus, soapy in taste. Spicy, soap and grainy in aftertaste. Light body. Drinkable brew, but boring too.

On tap at BrewDog, Helsinki. Dark golden with a white head. Soft with malt, grain, grass and some hints of ginger. The body was on the light side as was the bitterness.

Saeglopur (2296) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - AUG 6, 2017
Score: 7 / 4 / 7 / 4 / 15

330 ml bottle from Mikkeller Beer Club, bb 16/07/18.
Amber, moderate hazy body, with a big, fluffy, lacing, light beige head.
Aroma of caramel, bread, grains, minty herbs, grass, flowers, some pine.
Tastes similar, with some more honey.
Medium, a bit oily mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes medium bitter, light sweet, hoppy, piney, floral, herbal, a bit bready, with some honey.

Very nice. Fully aromatic, clean and well balanced, with really nice, fresh herbal notes, lots of hops and a smooth, caramelic malt body. I really like this, characterful and very quaffable Lager.

Gold amber color, light foam, nuttyness in aroma. Light taste. Berries in the taste. Good aftertaste. A light summer beer.

[email protected] Brewdog Helsinki, mikkeller tap takeover. Pours deep golden color with a thick white head. Grainy malty aroma, some hay, some cellar notes. Flavor has grains, mild sweetness, grass and malt. Light bitterness. Good drinkability.
