2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
From tap to bottle at ElavÕlu. Looks bright amber and clear. Tastes light with a whole bunch of grains. Some caramel malts and coffee notes join in . Finishes off with herbal hops. At halfway point you could notice the alcohol level is slightly higher for this style. Good and definitely has more to offer than some "crafts".

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Drink Baar, Tallinn. Clear amber shade with a ring of head. Light gingery spice in the aroma. Taste is caramelly, malty, bready. There’s a dryness to it that helps drinkability. Body is notably robust even for the strength. Compares favourably to the Ayinger Oktoberfest I just had.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Liters at various pubs around Estonia. When it fresh - it is good and refreshing version of amber lager. Body varies heavily form medium thick to nonexistent. Hop palet is irregular, and malt is rather different from batch to batch. Still it is different and this worth a try. Ask barman for a sample - then get your pint.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Põrgu in Tallinn (€ 2,50 for 33 cl), August 2014. Clear dark amber / light mahagony, off-white small head - no lacing, doesn’t stay for long. Looks great against candlelight. Nose is candy-like, almost artificial caramel, killing off everything else; gets more malty later, something ashy too. Taste is caramelly, malty-grainy, with a very slight metallic aftertaste, and a modest spicy tingle. Light to medium body, mild carbonation; sticky, even syrupy palate. A slightly bitter, grainy and sugary, dry finish. Would not believe it to be 6,2 % ABV. Quite tasty.

Draft. Orane color, little bit hazy (only very little). Aroma of raisins, some herbal tones also. Sweet malty notes in taste, at finish more hoppy. Nice experience.
