Rock Pepper on sensatsiooniline uus maitse kvaliteetõllede seas. Enam kui 800 filigraanselt sobituvat maitseelementi loovad üllatavalt mõnusa järelmaitse, mis on väärt, et asi veidi teravamaks ajada. Õlu sisaldab odralinnaseid.

From the archives: This was a very daring experiment by Saku. I liked it a lot. Even more than traditional Saku Rock. Was perfect, when served extra cold.

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.

SaintMatty (6809) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - NOV 18, 2007
Bottle- Sampled in May 2007. Golden in colour with a typical pilsner appearance. Not much aroma detected and certainly not much pepper evident in the smell. The taste is malty with a light hoppiness. At first I wondered where the pepper was but after a couple of sips, the pepper becomes more noticeable with a mild burning sensation in the aftertaste.

sayravai (4708) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 18, 2007
(Bottled) Clear, pale golden color with a medium, frothy and lacy head. Mild, corny-malty aroma with faint hops. Corny-malty flavor with very little hops and almost no finish. The pepper comes into play only after several sips, but it definitely is there. Light-bodied, smooth-carbonated palate with the sting from the pepper. Tasteless like Sol or Corona, but with some added pepper. Who would enjoy something like that, is beyond me...

Bottle. Creamy white good mostly lasting head. Yellow colour. Week but ok aroma. Week flavor. You can just detect pepper at finish. Watery palate.

onystrom (1333) - Magellan Hunter! - Skanderborg, DENMARK - JAN 5, 2007
Pale yellow color with fine head. Malty flavor and rather ordinay. The pepper only hits you after you finish.

This is a beer which supposebly has pepper in it. Unfortunately, it tastes nothing but piss-lager. The problem is that it, together with A.Le Coq Cuba, tastes much worst than most other Estonian lagers! The beer is pale yellow and pours with a 2cm head which quickly disappears. The aroma is quite yeasty, but not the worst I’ve smelled. The beer tastes absolutely nothing, which is why it deserves 2 points instead of 1. It is quite foamy though. It is worth trying ONLY for the fact that it has the word "pepper" in the name.
