Brief impressions below. Reviewed live as a honey beer (honey lager).

A: What you'd expect. A white head, ~2 inches, that sticks around for ~5 minutes. Body is a clear clean yellow.

Sm: Layered complex notes of honey, replete with floral & nectary notes and a fresh appealing sweetness.

T: Multifaceted honey notes, evoking various honey sources and notes including flowers, nectar, and even apple. Clean pilsner malts. Floral hop character. Balanced, clean, and simple, with a pleasing taste.

Mf: Light-bodied. It's not too sticky or syrupy, like most poorly executed honey lagers. Adequately carbonated, smooth, wet, and refreshing.

O: Highly drinkable and enjoyable in spite of its relative simplicity and shallowness. It's an original beer from Stallhagen, even if it isn't mind-blowing or unique. Definitely a beer I'd order on-draught, but it might not impress the discerning drinker. While it's definitely above-average, it's not gestalt and there's no harmony of texture and taste. Honey beer enthusiasts would be better served sticking to Estonian offerings (like Olde Hansa's).

High C+ (3.21)

The colour is yellow (5 EBC), the liquid is clear. The white two finger head slowly sinks down to a thick lid leaving some lacing on the glass.

The smell is a bit yeasty with minerals and some alcohol. It is quite sweet with notes of honey drops and green bananas.

The taste is fresh and clean. Some exotic fruits in the background, as hints of corn and olive oil. Light to medium body. The aftertaste got growing sweeter notes with notes of (real) honey and light floral hops. Semi-sweet honey in the finish.

The carbonation is strong, the large bubbles are long-lived in my mouth. The liquid is semi-smooth.

A nice beer with very discreet honey flavours.
