look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

Pours clear yellow/golden with dense white head that fades to small white patches at the top, patchy lacing. Smell is weak sour grain, hints of corn-like vegetables.

Taste is mild bitterness that soon fades giving way to weak sweetish malt, all of this seems to have kind of industrial feeling to it. Mouthfeel is light with lively carbonation.

I did not like the beer and I will not drink it again. It is interesting that the can says that people in Saaremaa drank this beer "since times immemorial". What terrible times these must have been...

"Saaremaa" is the 2nd largest Estonian isle, located in the Baltic Sea. "Tuulik" is Estonian for post mill.

The beer makes a fizzing sound white being poured. The colour is yellow; the two finger head airy and off-white. It sinks down to a thick lid. No lacing.

The smell is sour-bitter. Unclean. Grains. Sweet artificial flavours. Sour.

The flavours are light: Odd slight flavours en masse: Dough, beef stock, nuts, pulp. The aftertaste is sweet and chemical with notes of consommé with some unpleasant bitter hints.

The carbonation is light to medium, the bubbles small. The liquid is watery.

According to the can, this beer has been drunk in the Estonian isle of Saaremaa since way back. And I pity them.

A-Crystal clear gold lager, head appears instantly when poured, but just as quickly vanishes

S-Light malt aroma, a hint of some grassy hops

T-Generic is the best word that comes to mind. It isn't bad, in fact there is a complete absence of any offending flavor, but little to recommend it either. Some malt sweetness up front, slight corn taste, but not in a bad way

M-light bodied medium carbonation

O-Inoffensive, lager. Very bland with no real flavor, but doesn't taste watery either. I guess its pretty good for what it is, a pale euro lager. That said its a beer with no technical faults except its lack of head, but it also has nothing to recommend it. Soul-less is an adjective that comes to mind. Like a slightly more flavorful Budweiser or slightly less flavorful Coors Original
