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.

Martinus (2739) - Nijmegen, 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.

Stefano (1864) - Esbjerg, DENMARK - DEC 8, 2008
Light golden color, white head. Very sweet aroma. Flavour of malts, corn and alcohol. Not a double bock.

JorisPPattyn (7778) - Antwerpen, 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!

janir (216) - Oulu, FINLAND - AUG 17, 2008
Very pale yellow color with quickly vanishing soapy head. Aroma is sweet malty with some alcohol. Flavor is sweet malty and alcoholic, a bit fruity also. Light-bodied and softly carbonated palate.

bager (2121) - Copenhagen N, DENMARK - JUL 28, 2008
Canned. Clear and kinda yellow in colour with a medium sized head. Malty and quite alcoholic with notes of metal, grass, hay and bread. Thin bodied.

FatPhil (8997) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 14, 2008
500ml bottle (Rimi, Tallinn)
Strawy yellow, no lasting head. Slightly sweet gluey aroma. Taste not dissimilar. Moderate sweet light malt, with a hint of corn, and a touch of marzipan. Hops kick in for quite a bitey finish, perhaps a little harsh in the context. Covers 8% pretty well, actually quite subtle, but heading towards boring. Better than the ’malt liquor’ moniker categorisation suggests.

bierkoning (9999) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - MAY 13, 2008
Bottle from TBone. Grainy aroma with grapes. Blonde, no head. Grainy alcoholic flavor, rather thin. Hints of rhum. Somewaht perfumed aftertaste. Below average pale bock.

KnutAlbert (6013) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 28, 2008
Bottle as Stiprais Walter. Rather soft and fruity, almost like a Bohemina pils. The strength shows in an edge and a warming finish. Very decent for a strong lager.
