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

Draught at Drink (Tallinn). Coppery red colour. Sweet malty aroma. The taste is full and rich with plenty of caramel and notes of honey and biscuit. Well balanced tasty brew.

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.

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)

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.

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.

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.

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.

Clear reddish amber color, minimal head. Malty aroma with notes of honey. Sweet taste of malt, caramel, some fruits, honey, grain and bread, lightly bitter and dry finish. Medium body and fizzy carbonation. Nice and enjoyable beer.
