Can’t really hate this, even if one is sort of supposed to look down on anything of such high alcohol by volume, and such high...volume (67 oz, 2 L). Good balance between malt, alcohol burn, and the expected if suboptimal adjunct lager; all elements are strangely in harmony. Quite drinkable, and better than so many of Saku’s insipid PLs.
2L PET bottle (Maxima, Rakvere)Senka (1082) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 22, 2015
Why the hate? Malty aroma, sweetish. Paleish. Taste clean and malty, a little sweet. Full smooth palate, carbonation low enough that drinking 2L is feasible.
Finish sweet and malty. This is a good ESL, make no doubt. This is better than a lot of so-called "craft" beer. And I’m not saying that past midnight after a long sesh, this is the first beer of the day. And, no bullshit, I drank 2L of it, this is remarkably drinkable.
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2016 Hard to get. Possibly retired. Last time I had it was more than a year ago. Fortified lager. Malty and with loads of alcohol. Quite a disappointment.
Update: 2L bottle from Selver. Extremely thin and tasteless. It is not revolting,it is quite smooth and easy going, but the thickness is really lower than water, considering 7% alcohol. Tide (3964) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 26, 2013
Bottle from supermarket. Golden color, white head. Sweet taste with mostly malt, citrus, caramel, grain, alcohol.
Dry bitter finish with malts. Drinkable brew. Marduk (7917) - Reval, ESTONIA - MAY 8, 2012
2l plastic bottle. Every sip is agony. Like trying to commit suicide in a very slow and painful way. Vodka+beer= this drink.

Pale golden yellow, medium head. Malty aroma with lots of alcohol, some apple notes. The taste is sweet malt and anis, alcohol in the finish. Oily mouthfeel. Drinkable. SaintMatty (7408) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - DEC 2, 2009
2l Bottle - Gold in appearance and it looks rather flat. Alcoholic aroma with some hints of dried apple. Malty and faintly fruity taste with grain and apples standing out. Not very nice at all. oh6gdx (26487) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 16, 2008
Big murder size plastic bottle (thanks dad!). Deep golden colour with small white head, that disappears quite quickly. Aroma is sweet malts along with with quite much alcoholic notes. Flavour is sweet alcohol along with a big malty body with some honeyish sweetness too. Some slight metallic hints also. Quite nice while cold. pubbe (493) - Højbjerg, DENMARK - DEC 21, 2006
Bottle. Light amber with off-white mostly diminishing head. Aroma of slightly sweet malt. Somewhat metallic in the flavor. Average finish with a dash of alcohol. FrankJohansen (3622) - Sabro, DENMARK - DEC 19, 2006
Bottle. Clear golden colour with a medium moslty diminishing white head. Sweet aroma and sweet taste of malts and alcohol. Boring pretty much standard estonian beer. This is a bit stronger than most estonian beer with a better palate but high Abv. is not everything.
