3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not bad. A very enjoyable Strong Lager, well set on its way to a Bock taste.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled 330ml Tallinn. Clear pale amber color, small white head. Cardboardish and harsh aroma. Medium-bodied. Light sweetish malty flavor, some green apple, paper. Not really alcoholic, just lame and papery.

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
330ml bottle. Clear golden color. No head, looks like shit. Papery, malty, alcohol in aroma. Alcohol, malty, grainy flavor. Nasty stuff.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
330ml bottle (Stockmann, Tallinn)
Meh - papery aroma. On swirling, there’s a hint of some gluey solvent too. Wallpaper - paper plus starch plus glue. You can feel the alcohol. Finish is just more bloody paper. Leaves the mouth needing a cleanse - Marduk suggests casting a /Neutralize Poison/ spell! So much wallpaper. Yeugh!

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
33cl bottle. Aroma of cane syrup and some caramel. Beautiful orange color for a strong lager. Unfortunately no head at all. Malty enough for the claimed type. Hoppy bitterness is rather weak. Medium body, oily with no carbonation (I would say it is typical for double bock). Better be served colder than usual revved up beer.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Orange, white head. Nose is malts and caramel, some hay notes. Taste is pretty much the same with light hops, mild dryness and bitter alcohol in the finish. Thin to medium body, medium carbonation, slightly oily mouthfeel. Better than expected.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Brown bottle. Dark golden body with a medium to small head. Sweetish malty aroma. Sweet malty taste with medium hoppiness and light alcohol bitterness. Has a bit richer body than local "strong pale lagers" but somehow it doesn’t offer much more depth of flavours. Relatively clean and drinkable but not something exciting.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Trockener Antrunk mit verhaltenenen herb-Süßen Noten. Die Süße legt leicht zu, wird aber von der hopfigen Würzigkeit übertroffen. Das Bier ist so rund aber nicht übermäßig intensiv, süffig, gelungen. Stimmiges Bier ohne großen Anspruch. 8/8/9/8/7/8

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled 330ml. -Courtesy of heavy (thanks!) Golden coloured, small to medium sized white head, light malty nose with hint of caramel. Sweet malty, caramel and light grainy with some notes of alcohol in rather dusty finish. Average Italian macro.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
28/08 0.33 l bottle from Coop store, Gradisca d’Isonzo. It poured golden body with small head that lived short. Very weak malty aroma, almost non existent. Flavor is malty as well, sweetish of course, slightly unclean. Medium body. Not overly sweet, even in the finish which even showed some light coffee notes that are not excepted to be here. Slightly alcoholic throughout whole flavor. Strange and hard to define, but in general not bad, highly drinkable heller bock.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Castello Bionda Doppio Malto. Castello seems to change the names all the time. Great. Anyway, courtesy of heavy (thanks!). Poured a golden body with a small white head. Very light stale herbal nose, bit oily. Slightly soapy malty grainy taste, somehow... nice. Slightly dusty. No alcohol presence. Clean and drinkable despite light flaws - more than I expected!
