2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Fine colour. Very strong, sweet. But the alcohol traces are hard to feel. Not a bad example of strong estonian lager.

NOTE: This is not really a rating. I’m converting my old notes over to BR. This is more like "check" for my own purpouses, that I have indeed drunk this beer at the time it was produced.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Beyond best before date, but it was still drinkable. Pale yellow. Aroma sweet malty, some alcohol. Taste sweet malty, a bit like a danish "guldøl". Despite the alcohol quite refreshing.

"Saaremaa X on kange õlu." O RLY? Then again, it’s a *lot* better than for example Finnish IV B. Not so malty and quite sweet. But not good enough to be drunken twice...

Bottle. Rated in 2009. I only bought it out of curiosity because it was one of the strongest beers available at the time. Aroma was mostly alcohol with little maltiness. The taste was strongly alcoholic which killed off anything other that could have made this brew interesting. It was cheap though.

Smells like cooked vegetables. Sweet and alcoholic taste, with notes of citrus. Sweet and alcoholic water, really. Shared 27. Oct. 2009 at Rating session in Tromsø.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Thanks to Stefaan! Good, fine & dense yellowish head over well-carbonated yellow-golden beer; end of bottle fully hazy. Sweet, alcoholic nose, pale malts and oxydized malts. More alcohol and more alcohol... just the CO² alleviating the sweetness. Old cookies, almonds, forgotten piece of marzipan. Sharp burning MF, near overcarbonated, fiery alcoholwarming. Terrible malt liquor.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
500ml bottle that concluded our rating session of Estonian beers in late October. Fast fading chalky foam. Yellow-golden body. Aroma of alcohol and a note of malts. Sweet maltiness in flavour with alcohol steam behind. Rather vapid on the swallow. Thanks to Stefan and Elisabeth for sharing (Tromsø, 27.10.2009).
