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.

Rune (9079) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 3, 2009
Shared at an Estonian drinking session, thanks to Stefan and Elisabeth for carrying a 500ml bottle from Tallinn to Tromsø. White foamy head over a bright, yellow-straw coloured body. Dry smell of sour, pale malts. Sweet and, in fact, sweaty taste of fruits with alcohol steam. Some sweet corn, too. Not approved as a double bock (Tromsø, 27.10.2009).

Can. [thank you, Feldthaus]
Pours clear, lightly neon yellow with a small, staying, frothy, white head. Aroma is grqainy, very sweet with some degree of brewing cereal. High carbonation, oily and fat mouthfeel. Sweet flavour, rather vinious, light brewing cereal and sugar. Not good.

rosenbergh (8288) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 20, 2009
330 ml can. From Tallinn, Estonia. Clear golden colour with thin white head. Very sweet malty aroma. The flavour is sweet too. With some alcohol and... more alcohol. And some sweet maltiness. But mostly alcohol. I can’t see the reason for drinking this kind of beer.

Martinus (3570) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - JAN 26, 2009
Pale, sweet, plastic bottle, sweet, some malt, sweet, light golden straw color and sweet. Out of a supermarket in Tartu. OK for a refreshing drink after sauna, but for that purpose actually too high in alcohol.

JorisPPattyn (8333) - Ursel, BELGIUM - AUG 25, 2008
Little head, big-bubbled, over dark golden beer. Grainy, perfumed, sweet-alcoholnose. Bitter-sweet, almondy, cheap alcohol taste - awful. Sharp alcohol-warming flavour and MF. Very poor - doesn’t deserve the moniker "Double Bock". Malt Liquor nails it. Thanks to Stefaan!
