I don’t really get the point of this beer. This is just like the regular Alfa Pils (which is actually quite good), but added with a whole lot of fermentable sugar to get more alcohol. Result is the regular pils plus a pungent sweet flavour and noticeable alcohol in the aftertaste, making the beer lose its balance.

Blond bier uit blik. Veel alcohol, weinig smaak. Een brouwerij met zo’n geschiedenis moet toch wel met iets beter kunnen komen.

0,5l blik. Goudgeel met een witte kraag. Smaak en geur zoet met gras en sinaasappelthee. Afdronk is licht zuur.

Golden colour. Pretty stale aroma. Taste, when very cold, is actually ok. Doesn’t have that furry mouthfeel that many other super strong beers have.

visionthing (3683) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 13, 2015
50cl can shared by Arve_Christian - "thanks"! Pours clear golden with a decent, white head. Sweet, alcoholic, grainy and somewhat floral with notes of honey and syrup. Sweet, unbalanced, but possible to drink. Nothing I would like to drink again but somewhat clean.

On bottle from supermarket in Amsterdam. Golden color, good foam. Medium aroma intensity; honey, some fruitiness. Medium body & medium light complexity . On the sweet side with a sting of alcohol. Better then expected ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Leighton (14404) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2015
Can shared at chriso’s pre-GBBF shindig 2013 - London. Pours perfectly clear gold with a mellow, creamy white head. Light medicinal notes on the nose, some pale bread. Big sugary flavor with heavy bready malts and dough. Medium to full bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet finish, a little syrupy, with just hints of hay. Pretty garbage.

Erzengel (5644) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - NOV 13, 2014
50 cl can. The beer starts sharp-malty and very sweetish. Slightly bitter in the main part, alcoholic-worming. Easy to drink, but totally sweetish and sticky. The aftertaste is warming-sweet, slightly malty-grainy with hints of bitterness.

Icedwarf (807) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - MAY 30, 2014
Geel bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is licht bitter, en licht zoet. Verder vrij vlak en blijft niet lang hangen. Goed te drinken.
