0,4L bottle. Nice clear golden color with nice permanent tiny hat. Usual hop, yeast aroma. On taste gives note some spicy flavor. Ginger, lime. Enough of hops carbonating. Finish is bit light, but OK. Normal beer.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thin palate, watery, sweeter-malt finish than the usual for this brewery; strongly suspect that this is a relabeling of A. Le Coq Imperial Gold, also brewed at 4.8% abv at Tartu.
Earlier Rating: 5/1/2013 Total Score: 2.9
Slightly improved regular A.Le Coq in a fancy undersized (13.5 oz as opposed to the normal 16.9) bottle, this has the thin palate and wateriness of its brandmates, with a significantly mproved sweet-malt finish

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
400ml bottle (Rimi, Tallinn)
Pours a rich gold, with a huge persistent tight, almost rocky, head. Does have nice aromatic noble hops in the aroma, with some soft sweet malts behind that. Typical lagery palate, a bit watery, with some crisp carbonation. Taste does have a fair bit of barley to it, I don’t think its an adjunct lager at all. Quite a good Czech pilsner hoppiness. Make this unfiltered, and this would actually be good.Finish does have some bitterness, more than most A le Coqs. This is a good tasty lager.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Fancy new 400 ml bottle. Golden body, medium head. Aroma has simple barley and lager yeast. Sweetish taste of white bread. Quite full body. Finish turns "muddy" - it’s either from some strange hops or alcohol that is not well covered. Either way it’s not crisp and sessionable. More sweet malt in the finish.
