1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.
