Hard Rock on kange kraam karmidele meestele. See pole mõeldud nädalateks külmkappi seisma jäämiseks, vaid tarbimiseks kohapeal- kohe, kiiresti ja külmalt. Õlut peabki jooma külmalt. Ja kuna Sa just seda pudelit käes hoiad, tähendab et sinuga on kõik korras- Sa oled karm vana!

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2014 From the archives: When You are young, and need to get hammered on a black metal concert - this is what you used to get. Some vodka and some fortified pale lager. I remember it being rather unpleasant drink. Previously to this one, Saku used to to produce Saku 7.5 - that had body and aroma, and surprisingly 7.5% was well hidden.

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

Tranquillity (1860) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 2, 2006
Can 500ml. Actually not a bad beer of all in spite of the hefty can design and voltage. A bit darker than standard Saku and pours with a huge head. Very flowery, fruity aromas which cling on in the taste. Strong taste of alcohol.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 22, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2005 (Bottle 50 cl) Fully golden, not much head. Loads of impurities in this. Pronounced - if not excatly sickening - sweetness. And in spite of the high alcohol this isn’t that hard to drink as with most malt liquors. Apparently a beer aimed at the young discoteque-going Estonians complete with it’s own web-site: http://www.rock.ee/ 201102

jde123 (775) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 6, 2005
Extremely fruity, smells strongly of alcohol and slightly overripe pears. Sweet-sickly feeling rise in the stomach at about this point. They must have added tons of sugar to this one, if I didn’t have diabetes before, I have it now.

oh6gdx (25327) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAR 19, 2005
Bottled. Golden coloured, small white bubbly head, which disappears quickly. Sweet apple aroma with hints of alcohol. Sweet apples and alcohol in taste. No aftertaste and makes mouth sticky. Good beer if you want to get drunk fast.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 29, 2004
Dirty dark golden with a large white head. Sugary and alcoholic aroma. Sweet, metallic and alcoholic flavour with notes of candied fruit. Lot's of booze in finish.

TBone (16159) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 17, 2004
Bottled (BB 07/2004)
Amber color, foamy white head. Sweet metallic apple aroma. Sweet alcoholic mouthfeel, apples also in taste. Short alcoholic finish, warming.
