Because we work from the barcode, if producers does not make us aware of a label change we often miss updates until we are contacted about it. Apologies in advance for this.

Please note that it isn’t always possible to provide a perfect looking bottle/label as this very much depends on the condition they are received in from our supplier.

Our boxes come in 6s, 12s, and 24s. By no means are you required to order in those quantities, but it is worth bearing in mind when ordering. A full box also helps to reduce the small chance of damage, as empty compartments collapsing can be a cause of this.

  1. Andrew

    Not too bad — a pretty standard pale lager, though a bit on the lighter side. Not super punchy, but it will quench your thirst well enough to warrant reaching for another one.

  2. Sam

    Premium lager fits the description perfectly. Nice and easy drinking lager. Don’t expect this beer to blow your mind but will certainly leave you feeling refreshed. Cracking bottle.

  3. L Kav

    Firstly this is a unique bottle design that is nicely weighted at the bottom making it difficult to knock over. Genius!
    The beer itself pours clear with a 1 finger head. This is a clean lager which fits well with a nice summer day.

  4. Joanna Kirkby

    One of the best I’ve tried so far. Absolutely stunning. Goes down so easy. Very smooth with very little aftertaste. Could drink it all day long. Have tried 50+ lagers so far on this site and prob another 100 odd from supermarkets and it’s in the top 10.

  5. Christopher Leno

    Straw in colour with a small frothy head. Is lightly sweet and malty. Has a very mild flavour and is a bit grassy. Nice and refreshing with a novel bottle.

  6. Steve Hawkins

    My favourite Pilsner of all time. Simply the best!!! I can drink one of these in 30 seconds!! Vanilla on the nose and a smooth fresh pilsner taste. The finish is a beautiful spring lightness. Its a perfect combination. You need this in your life!! I would advise 10 minutes in the freezer before serving so that its ice cold!

  7. Sharpie

    Nice golden beer, drank it ice cold. as recommended. It has a clean, slightly malty taste. Son’s fiancée wants me to buy more so she can use the bottles for a matching condiment & oils set! She’ll be gutted when I tell her it’s out of stock. Definitely will buy again.

  8. Paul Grubb

    This isn’t too bad, I liked the orange and florally aroma and mid-taste. The beer had half a finger white head and colours varied from gold to orange to brown, making for a slightly hazy and translucent appearance. Carbonation was fairly strong. The only thing that puts me off getting this again is the aftertaste as it was a fairly strong and bitter aftertaste similar to liquorice.

  9. Laura Scotland

    A nice enough beer, but much prefer Saku if choosing an Estonian beer. The bottle is very cool though.

  10. Chris

    Light and slight malt taste. Goes down a treat, found it easy to drink. Nice overall pale lager, great shaped bottle aswell.

  11. David Hanson

    Disappointing thin flavour, hardly there. Pretty bottle. Not certain this is brewed in Estonia as described – label only commits to EU. Not a good sign!

  12. Chris H

    The bottle is unique, very aesthetically pleasing, didn’t enjoy its contents as much. Lacked any sort of body and had a lingering bitter finish.

  13. Nigel

    The only issue with the bottle is that it’s a bit on the small side! The three bottles that I have opened from this order have all been very lively, meaning I lost a few drops, but I don’t remember that problem with my first order of this beer.
    As you can tell, I like this beer enough to re-order. It’s quite a different taste from most lagers, but I can’t quite find the words to describe how – sorry! Slightly hazy and darker than most lagers, and perhaps the taste I get (and like) is the malt or perhaps just the barley used. Not the cheapest, given that it’s only 300ml, but I will be ordering it again.

  14. Marek

    Very bitter taste. Rich aroma, little bit acrid finish. But overall nice balanced between few flavours. Not ordinary beer, but great beer!

  15. Stuart

    Best part was the unique bottle. Quite a lingering aftertaste and nothing in the beer that was better than anything else I’ve had from Eastern Europe

  16. Paul Boniface

    A fairly thin flavour with no too much depth for an east European beer. The bottle is interesting though.

  17. Mr S

    Enjoyable and the unique bottle is something different, although does mean there is less beer!

  18. Elle M

    Decent European pilsner. I’ve never had anything from Estonia before but this beer did not disappoint. It’s light and crisp and comes in a pretty bottle, which is now used as a vase for flowers.

  19. Stujago

    A standard, refreshing lager which I would happily drink again. 3.25/5

  20. alan chicken

    Lovley drop of beer that you can not get in a supermarket or corner shop

  21. Michael hendle

    As my partner is Estonian when we go over there, we drink it quite often, in fact, the price of the bottle is lower here than in Estonia

  22. Jim Riley

    Not quite a standard Euro pilsener as it has something slightly different going on in its flavour. A good and different choice that comes in a distinctive, vase like bottle. A 500 ml bottle would be better!

  23. Ryan Winson

    Pretty standard, I enjoyed it but maybe wouldn’t go out of my way to get it again, enjoyable though and a very interesting bottle
