Beer #38 Viru (Estonia)

image

ABV: 5% Look at the bottle! It’s an octagon for crying out loud. Big points already, although something that describes itself as a ‘Premium [insert region] beer’ is normally overstating….and Viru doesn’t disappoint. It’s light and easy on the palette and wholly forgettable. No wonder it was reduced to clear in Tesco.

Fun Fact: Did you know there are only 9 breweries in Estonia?
