“330ml bottle into shaker glass. No Smell. No taste. This is the cheap vodka of beers - no flavour at all. Doesn’t even taste like water. Doesn’t taste like soda water. Just fizziness that slides off your tongue and leaves you wondering what just happened. Pale straw colour with infinitesimal head and no lacing. Reminds me of 1970’s home brew. Utter rubbish.” -- by DavidAust

“Bottle from Cellarbrations Daylesford 201115. I knew what I was getting when I bought this beer so no real complaints. I’m sure that there is a market for this beer out there somewhere. While pretty ordinary I imagine it would go down well on a really hot summers day.” -- by mkel07

“Green bottle. Poured into a shaker. Dark straw (so still light / pale but not golden) pours with a one finger head which disappears almost immediately. No lacing at all. Smell is unpleasant. Not quiet skunk but not too far away. Taste is sweet - zero bitterness. Thankfully short finish. Not worth it.” -- by DavidAust

“This was poured into a pint glass at the brewery. The appearance was a slight yellow color with a fast rising carbonation. The smell, uh...this is where is goes downhill, metallic to turpentine, smells awful. The taste pretty much copied the smell. The mouthfeel was extremely hard to get through but that was kind of silky. Overall, I wouldn’t touch this again with a ten foot pole, I’m afraid the pole would melt. Wooee, no thanks.” -- by Bulk_Carrier

“Aroma of dark bread, chocolate, blackberries, grassy hops. Taste is similar, heavy on the bready malts and some crystal malts. Good balance between solid maltiness and hop flavour and bitterness. Alcohol is barely detectable. Great take on the style!” -- by ncube

“From can contributed by EMJ at OSB 04.11.15. Golden amber. Diminishing beige head and lacing. Unappealing aroma of sweet malt and dark caramel that has past its best before date. Even worse taste, with sweet boiled vegetables and caramel. An utterly sheit beer! ” -- by Holmen2

“330 ml. green bottle sampled. Thank you! BBF 17.03.2016. Sold as a Nepalese beer but not made there, I almost wonder if this is even sold in Nepal. A small gusher – seriously, a fist one for a macro beer. The least you can expect from a macro beer like this is no issues like that. Never encountered that before. Very pale clear golden, little head. Nose is awful rotting thin, hugely watery metallic corn, hugely oily & spoiled. Taste is hugely oily & watery, spoiled, rotting corn, mold, terrible oily tea, sugar, artificial, chemical, mineral,… Body is thin, watery, chemical & overly metallic. Really bad beer. Rubbish really even if you taking non-beer country standard in mind.” -- by 77ships

“Pour was mahogany orange-red with a nice initial head that thinned quite quickly, still as a stagnant pond, little mickey mouse shaped backwash looking formation of very very thin little bubbles in the middle, about the size of a quarter. Yes, I’m making this stuff up as I drink, as it is a total let down so far. The aroma is sticky chocolate, maple, bourbon, vanilla, cherries. Flavor follows, brown sugar and molasses included (but nothing like that molasses shoo fly pie leftover I had this morning), some significant heat, fusels, fearing heartburn later. Mouthfeel was big and sticky, hot. Another "creative" DFH mess, drinkable for the intrigue alone. Once. FT: One more bottle. Will take best offer.” -- by eaglefan538

Bottle from Coop Forum Visby.
App: Faint puff of carbonation when opened. Murky brownish amber with a short/short lived off white head.
Aroma: Slightly dull sweet yeasty grainy aroma with yeasty bready notes, some honey and old oranges and bananas. Slight spicy and medicinal. Quite cloying and off putting.
Taste: Cloying yeasty, spicy flavour with old oranges and banana peel, baking yeast, clove and rusty tap water. Watery aftertaste.
Palate: Thin and flat with an oily texture.
Overall: Horrible beer that resemble a bad gotlandsdricka more than a pilsner.” -- by Mad_Ferret

“Flasche (Rakbaek Black Beer; 630 ml) aus dem Rakwon Department Store, Pyongyang. - Rotbraun statt schwarz, klar; kaum Schaum. - Geruch mild karamelsüß-dunkelmalzig und leicht säuerlich-fruchtig (roter Traubensaft) mit ein klein wenig Herbe, etwas schal. - Antrunk sehr blaß dunkelmalzig und matt süßlich (Traubenzucker) mit schwach säuerlicher Fruchtnote. Röstaromen, die man gemeinhin mit einem Schwarzbier verbindet, fehlen völlig; statt Hopfenaromen nur ein Hauch von holziger Herbe. Schwach rezent, unangenehm wäßrig. Im Abgang nur eine Andeutung von Herbe und ein Hauch von Kellerluft. - Extrem dünn und abgestanden, alles andere als ein kerniges Schwarzbier. Enttäuschend.” -- by Moravius

“Too sweet and at the same time too bitter. Tastes better from the bottle than when poured into a glass and that speaks volumes. Not a good beer at any price.” -- by DavidAust

“Clear bottle 940ml. This is worse than Corona in that it is a poor imitation. No head retention, smells of grain and corn syrup and over carbonated so that the palate is left tasting of soda water. Once again the only way to make this flavour nice is to override it with a slice of citrus. The only beer worse than this the other version of Sol we get in Australia (the 330ml bottle) which is brewed in the Netherlands and it has even less flavour!!!! Amazing.” -- by DavidAust

“Blaue 66cl Flasche aus Finnland. Das Buer ruecht süss nach Citrus. Geschmack ist erst Ztronig und dann im Abgang metallisch und unangenehm alkoholisch. Für mich misslungen.” -- by DrNosha
