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".

From tap to bottle at ElavÕlu. Cloudy golden apperance. Light bodied, no backbone what so ever. Grains and hops in taste. Half a liter vanishes very quickly. Brewed according to the style, I’m ok with that. My only doubt here is the freshness.

Draft @ Porgu. Ambrée, col fin blanc. Arôme de malt pils, rétro noble houblonné très allemand sur petite note nasale fleurie, rétro orienté sur cara/grains avec touche de céréales. Palais est malté, cara pâle, petite douceur en fin de bouche, carapils, fleuri noble dans les houblons. Correcte et assez basique avec une orientation axée sur les malts.

Enjoyed a sample of this beer from a trumpet glass on tap at Porgu in Tallinn, Estonia. The beer had a darker gold color with a slightly amber hue and a foamy white head that was good-sized with average retention, cling, and lacing. The aroma featured floral and earthy hops with some lively straw and yeast notes. The taste was a sour-bitter blend with grainy and floral notes and a bit of straw. The beer was mostly wet and watery with low carbonation and an average thick mouthfeel.

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.

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.

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.

From tap to PET bottle in Elav Õlu. Bottle label has 5,7%. Dark brown body, medium to small head. Aroma has medium roast with some nuttiness. Good thick mouthfeel. Taste has medium roast with something salty. Not dry and ashy like most of the Schwarzbiers I know are. With its fruity, nutty and sweetish finish it’s actually closer to a Dunkel. Simple and drinkable but doesn’t offer anything special.

A nice dark beer, one of Estonia’s finest I’ve had so far. The head is a nice brownish color, although it dissapates fast. The smell is a full blowout of caramel, malt, molasses and some notes of alcohol later on. The color is ruby red with backlight, black otherwise, which is just perfect for this type of beer. The taste - take some sweet malts, add a bunch of molasses and some caramel, then mix with an aftertaste of chocolate and a hint of fruity undernote. Overall, a very nice bready feel to it, would love some Maasdam or Lacey cheese to go with it. The full taste, and sweet aroma compliment each other and make this a moment in live one should truly enjoy.

Served in snifter, wtf?
Aroma is odd with honey, apricot, grain and gluey notes. Flavour has metal, apricot, chlorine, grain and honey. Not the most typical Helles and too much metal here.

50cl on tap at Krunk, Sillamäe. Clear golden with a white head. Malty aroma with fruits, honey and some floral notes. Hints of caramel too. Fairly sweet with a light almost citrusy bitterness in the finish. Medium body with a slightly soft carbonation. Quite nice, far better than the usual pale lagers here.

From keg to PET bottle (Elav Õlu in Laagri). Shiny golden body with a white rocky head. Fresh bready aroma with some honey and biscuits. Rich malty taste with some cookie dough. Sweetish finish with medium hops. Tasty and smooth. Good Helles. Perhaps the best Estonian lager?

Aroma is sweet and odd with berries, vanilla and caramel. Flavour has caramel, some raspberries and malty feeling in the finish. Not your typical Münchener and actually feels more like an ale. But somehow I like the berry notes here.

(Draught at Põrgu, 20120704) The beer poured golden and almost clear. Its head was small and white. Aroma had malts and grain. Palate was quite light bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were sweetness, malts, mildly caramell, grass and bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet and bitter. Way too sweet but clean enough.

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)

Clear golden color, no head. Grainy, dusty aroma with some barnyard too. Light to medium-bodied. Grainy, cardboardish, barley flavor, a bit tart. Kind of unclean farmhouse impression. Not great at all.

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.

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.
