I’ve been in Estonia for the past couple of days. I’ve tried one local brewery, Saku, and I have to say the beer is foul. It seems to be a pretty generic lager, but it has a nasty chemical taste which is really off-putting. This is especially true of the Saku Dark. It is 6.7% and additional alcohol really carries the most unpleasant flavours very well. I found two glasses of the stuff to be quite nauseating.
I am off to Finland for the weekend where I know there is a decent pub that serves real ale. It’ll be nice to have a good drink that doesn’t make me want to hurl. Sadly it is then back to Tallinn for two days. I must find a better bar….
