Poured dark copper coloured and almost clear with medium sized and white head. Aroma contained malts and grass. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, grass, mildly caramell, bitterness and mildly butter. Aftertas was malty and bitter.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I assume this is the one I’ve had draught at Dr!nk, Tallinn. Slighlty darker copper colour, small white head. Nice sweet yoghurty, grainy malty nose. Yoghurty grainy smooth soft taste, very light acidity, some sweetness, light bitter hoppy aftertaste. Nice enough and certainly a great change of pace after all those crappy Estonian macros and the Beer House varieties on the same theme.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Medium offwhite head doesn’t last. Amber body with light carbonation. Sulphury papery caramel aroma with vinegary notes. Dry rubbery roasty straw taste with sulphury fruity notes. Disharmonic. Mid-bodied. Smoothish mouthfeel. Dry, faintly acidic, dusty rubbery vinegary aftertaste. Probably the first to get this on tap today. Not too terrible, even so. (0.5l draft, Õlletorn, Tallinn.)

UPDATED: JAN 15, 2015 Keg (Õlletorn, Tallinn) - rating removed - not in good condition.
Keg (Drink Baar, Tallinn)
6 Slightly sweet malty aroma, quite baltic and latvian maybe.
4 Rich clear red.
6 Slightly sweet malts, lovely fresh green aromatic hops.
4 Soft carbonation, softened by the sweetness, covers the alcohol.
13 This is what a munchner lager should be like, very full, finish is long and so fresh.
Rerate: Tap (Hell Hunt, Tallinn) (6:4:7:4:14+=3.5)
I’ve had this 100 times here. It’s my go-to beer. Drink local, I don’t need the fancy imports. Tonight was a great ona, so fresh, so bready, a superb munchen. Drinkability unsurpassable.3.3 was bollocks, this is a damn good brew, probably 3.6 at its best (and that’s on my scale, in the US or Pooland, that’s probably the equivalent of 4.6)

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught in Õlletorn, Tallinn- Copper in colour. The aroma is fruity and malty with some light caramel. The taste is malty with an appealing fruitiness. Pleasant aftertaste. It does not taste as strong as 6.5% and is very drinkable. Not a bad beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at the <a
href=http://www.ratebeer.com/Place/estonia/ target=blank>Õlletorn in Tallinn, Estonia. Orange-amber in colour, long lasting white head, some lacing. The aroma is of sweet malts, cookies, caramel, earthy, nutty. The flavour has traces of citrus, earthy and quite malts, some caramel, light sweetness. Creamy mouthfeel, medium body, medium/high carbonation. Finishes with a light bitterness, yeasty. Interesting beer, the setting really seemed to help this one. Balanced, not boring. I seemed to like this one more then the others.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught in Bierstube, Tallinn. Deep brassy red colour with a nutty malt aroma and taste with some wininess and nutty malt. Good flavour, maybe the best Estonian beer...? (apart from the Baltic Porters, obviously... and some of them are crap too!)

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Draft at the only place in sillamäe that serves the beer: Peetros Pizzeria). Finding and drinking this beer was so much fun, that it probably affected my rating in a positive way. Anyway, to me, this was very good beer. A nice 1 inch head and a copper color. Malty aroma with a hint of alcohol and a dry flavor. A little bit like strawberry, says Martin. Palate needs some tlc.
