COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Traditional strong light beer Alcohol content: 7.0% Package: 0.5 l glass bottle The bock-type beer has been brewed for centuries in Europe. The light Double Bock is the first of its kind in Estonia. It has a pleasantly mellow taste for its alcohol content that makes Double Bock a powerful but cool beer. The recipe and taste distinctions of Double Bock have been developed taking into account the current taste preferences of Estonian consumers.

Pyrmir (3317) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUL 25, 2013
330 ml can. Clear light golden color with tiny white head. Aroma of malt, citrus and alcohol. Tastes is macro lager with more alcohol. I do not know where they got "bock" from.

brnandersen (1866) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 24, 2013
Sample from 50 cl. bottle, B.B. March 2004. Hazy, dark golden colour with a thin, white head. Sweet aroma with bread, grains, sugar and marzipan. Medium to full body, creamy texture. Short, sweet finish. Too sweet and sticky to be good. But the alcohol has mellowed down during ageing.

Had in Tallinn Sep 2011. Really nothing special. Canít say much more about it because I didnít record any notes at the time.

This estonian beer is counterpart of finnish Olvi?s Tuplapukki. It has strong alcohol content with mellow taste.

ectuohy27 (574) - ESTONIA - JAN 24, 2013
Rated on the hedonism scale here--this is a light, airy, fruity beer that hides its ABV exceedingly well. Not remotely like the brutal over-the-head burn of a Slavic strong lager, and welcome for it. Not much else going on--a bit of bitterness on the finish, and a grapefruit-y taste throughout.

visionthing (2685) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 12, 2012
33cl from Tallinn Airport. Pours clear pale golden with a small white head. Lightly malty aroma with hints of fruits, grass and cooked vegetables. Alcohol is noticeable, but not as dominant as expected. Sweet, warming and fairly easy to drink, but not much flavour. Some bitterness in the finish. Fairly decent strong lager...

harrisoni (13596) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2012
Can thanks to FatPhil. Cheers my friend. Pale gold thick white head. Not a great aroma, some vegetal qualities along with some light lemon hop, Some sweet syrup in the flavour. Rest is ok, some lemon, bit of bitterness on finish. Yep, not too bad. Itís got some syrupy lemon.

Idiosynkrasie (3730) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUL 31, 2012
500ml bottle. Clear pale golden colour with small, frothy, collapsing, white head. Slightly muggy, strawy aroma with an artificial sweet touch has some tart notes additionally. Taste has a decent fresh sourish touch, a strange soapy bitter overtone, a powerless grainy, minimally sweet malt basis. I hope imploringly this brew doesnít really match " the current taste preferences of Estonian consumers".
