COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A. Le Coq Strong Lager on kange hele kvaliteetõlu, mis ühendab endas lager-tüüpi õlle kerguse jõulise humalaga. Tavapärasest intensiivsem kääritamine annab õllele selle mehise maitse, parimad linnased ja humalad aga garanteerivad väärika elamuse. Tulemuseks on parim kvaliteetõlu, mis ei jäta kedagi külmaks. A. Le Coq Strong Lager. Jõuline. Väärikas. Mehine.

rosenbergh (6582) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 11, 2013
500 ml bottle. A/A. BB 23/06/13. From Estonia. Thanks Thomas!
Clear pale golden colour with a small white head. The aroma is quite typical to strong Baltic lagers, malt, sweetness, Play-Doh and mild solvent. The flavour on the other hand surprisingly fresh with mild fruitiness, malt and some sweetness. There’s some unpleasantness there too but not that strong. I could drink another one if I for some reason should drink more 6.5% lager. Well, I should not.

oh6gdx (20247) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 5, 2013
Bottled (thanks to SADESAs and CueSheets father). Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is grains, mild fruits and some salty notes. Flavour is starch, fruits, some grains and mild herbs. Actually not as bad as I thought it would be.

0.5L bottle. Very watery taste. Little bitter hops. I dont find anything special of this beer.

kingstoni (1472) - FINLAND - NOV 8, 2012
Bottle. Clear yellow color with no head. Aroma of honey and alcohol. Malty taste with grain and alcohol. Slightly sugary finish.

ectuohy27 (549) - ESTONIA - OCT 5, 2012
This is pretty bad. (that’s the review in short, but for more info: thin, incredibly light and watery texture and mouthfeel, taste of a tiny bit of malt, some bit more of bitterly off hops, and a whole lot more of chemicals; almost repulsively sandpapery aftertaste. Not even much alcohol taste detected at 6.5 abv--too bad, as that’d make it taste, well, less bad!

FatPhil (9172) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 3, 2012
500ml bottle - shared by Marduk - thanks!
Classic strong pale lager. In almost every way. Watery palate. Pale and fizzy. Biting papery finish, chemical and astringent, acrid. Leaves you thirsty. The review also contained the sentence "Industrially quite well produced.", but that seems contradictory to the other notes. Scrape it off my tongue!

thirstyrabbit (1078) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 27, 2012
Bottle. Pale golden body, minimal head. Weak aroma of corn. Taste is watery and therefore there’s nothing to cover the high amount of alcohol in it. No malt, no hops, no balance, just booze. What exactly is supposed to make this yet another hobo beer a "best quality beer"?

Senka (422) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 2, 2012
0,5L bottle, fresh from the brewery. Aroma is close to none (served@5-6degC). SRM is arround 4. Quite easy on the bitterns, and a mouthful of beverage leaves no trace of taste after about 15 seconds. Would not say that I can taste cardboard, but the alcohol taste is quite distinctive. Light body, thin feel, pretty flat with a sharp finish. Recommend to serve extra cold. Should score higher than most of other Estonian strong pale lagers (the beer is quite new at the moment of this rating).

Marduk (2582) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 2, 2012
0,5l bottle. Pale yellow color. Huge head, dissapears quickly. Papery, grainy, malty aroma. Very watery, malty flavor. Repulsive bitter ending.

suurjuust (976) - ESTONIA - AUG 18, 2012
Very pale straw, thin white head. Nose is messy grains with cardboard. Taste is more cardboardy grains, water, rubber. Finishes with harsh industrial hops and booze. Watery mouthfeel, medium carbonation. Bad.
