2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2011 Doesn’t feel like 8%, so deceptive. nice body, but quite boring. pretty label. Re-Rate with a WALTER named alias. something unpleasant in this beer this time. I find some honey and malts
RE-rate again and I have some description:
SODA WATER, Sweetener, metal, sterile. Bad, very bad, awful. Has been developed for the current taste preference of Estonian consumers? has to taste alcohol and got to get drunk fast.?

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Can 0,33L. Yellow, malt aroma . Not good, so strong for me. This beer is better in glass bottles. Beer for estonian drunkards in countryside

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
light white foam, sweet malt aroma with a hint of syrup. Golden yellow lager-like appearance. Palate is mellow, not much gassy. Taste is surprisingly sour, but over all pretty well balanced for 8% beer. There’s no clear alcohol taste,like in finnish Olvi dobbelbock which is, IIRC, only dobbelbock I have tasted so far.
