Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 11, 2012
In short: An amateurish amber beer with a few off flavors. Problematic
How: A few hand-bottles shared by FatPhil, filled directly in Estonia a consumed a few days later in lost village of Lithuania
The look: Almost clear amber body topped by a very small off-white head
In long: Nose is semi-toasted earthy hay and a tiny bit horsey. Taste is basic toasted cereals, a bit of caramel, a bit of honey, a weird wet leather sensation, a light fruity sourness. This felt very amateurish. Not good. At least I think this is what my drunken notes are saying, so now go wash you eyes cause I just pulled that rating out of my ass

Bouteille de 500 ml avec bouchon de céramique. Merci à FatPhil. Arôme: Légère odeur de céréales et de caramel. Apparence: La couleur est cuivrée. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût de caramel avec une pointe de céréales. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement huileuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Légère présence de caramel en arrière goût. (Rating #4227)

Draught @Drink bar. Dark amber color. Small white head. Grain, malts, slight hints of honey in aroma. Sweet malts, caramel, honey, grain in taste.

UPDATED: AUG 19, 2016 My Bottom Line:
This textbook malty lager showcases toasted bread aromas and flavors all the way, with barely a few raisiny touches underneath.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam surrounds the deep copper.
-Flavor profile is very clean.
-Drinkability is very high.
-Sweetness is kept in check.
-Hops are, at most, an afterthought.

On tap at Porgu, Tallinn.

Tap at Drink Baar. Deep amber pour with a tight white head. The aroma is softly sweet with a little bit of light toffee. Some chewiness along with a bit of sweet toasted malt. Clean and a little bit chewy. It’s a decent dark lager.

omhper (25250) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 7, 2011
Draught at Drink Baar, Tallinn. Clear amber, small head. Sweet and rather heavy with clean, rounded mouthfeel. Peppery and heavily caramelly with low bitterness. Well made, but more big than drinkable.

Sweet orange colour with pale head, smells of orange/ cherry/ citrus, taste very cherry & hoppy, despite the colour seems rather light

On tap at Dr!nk, Tallinn. Nasty aroma, but caramel aftertaste is reasonably pleasant. Not too bad

A better Munchener that you are likely to find in Munich but maybe that does not say much. Sweet malt with that annoying but perfectly correct dab of maple syrup in the background.

DruncanVeasey (8239) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2011
Draught at Hell Hunt, Tallinn. Red amber with a fine white lid. Beeswax aroma. Sweet, caramel and corn-accented with a slight edge of acidity and maybe oak. Barrels and caramel; tang of iron. Reminds me of Rodenbach. Digestives and cream afters. Can’t detect any alcohol. Decent drop.
