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.

Psytron (1320) - Turku, FINLAND - MAY 8, 2011
Citric aroma. Very light colour. Well balanced taste. Pleaseant palate, alcohol content doesnít ruin this. Iím no fan of strong pale beer but this one did qualify.

Very nice. Not really like a standar Bock but fine commercial one. Quite strong but not tiring with nice head and aroma.

kschep (1706) - DENMARK - JUN 10, 2010
strong flavours of malt, rotten fruit and a nutty end, this is one of the better double bocks Iíve yet come across.

sunevdj (3176) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - DEC 23, 2007
Pours a clear pale yellow with a tiny white head. Sweet and malty. HInt of alcohol and almonds. Medium dry. Medium to high fizzy carbonation. Dry finish with a hint of alcohol.

ectuohy27 (599) - 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.

JoeMcPhee (8410) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 4, 2011
7.0% ABV 500 ml bottle. Pale straw coloured pour with a thin white head. The aroma is fairly light with no really obvious sweet character nor the nasty sort of phenolics that I would typically associate with these. A little bit of apple flavour along with a touch of moderate sweetness. Pretty light and smooth with a little bit more punch than is typical, but itís not the malt liquor craptasticness I was expecting. Decent actually.

rickgordon (3843) - GŲteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 4, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 20, 2004 Bottled. Golden. Fairly malty and nutty. Not as bad as Carlsberg Elephant.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 22, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2006 (Bottle 50 cl) From German "Double Bocks" Iím used to the type being a strong, dark, malty lager. But this Estonian variety is only dark golden - at the most. But the alcohol is definitely there. On the other hand the head has gone missing - completely. Not that different from Danish Strong lagers as for instance "Elephant Beer". Sweetish and very potent without the strong alcohol making it exactly cloying. But not an exciting beer. 201003

KnutAlbert (6100) - 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.

larsniclas (5613) - Billdal, SWEDEN - AUG 10, 2003
A very light, sourish, very yeasty and rather fresh one. Sourish and sweet.
