2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2010 Oct, 2004 Green can from Carrefour, France. A session beer for those whose taste buds have been saturated by American big beers. Big taste. [1.7]
Dec, 2010 Can from corner shop. Paris. A sweet and chewy strong lager. Very smooth and drinkable for the strength. After all these years I’m still amazed that strong lager doesn’t seem to have the same inebriation factor as strong ale. A pint of 11.6% ale is fairly intoxicating, while a lager is just refreshing. Anyway - I enjoyed this - fairly clean and tasty. [2.5]

Skunky, rubbery hops aroma and a bit sweet. Medium amber-gold clear with pillowy white lacing head. Very thick body with low carbonatio, serious alcohol burn. Very sweet and syrupy, no bitterness or acidity. Finish is sweet and alcoholic. Vapory. Sweet after with burn.

500ml can: What a beer! OK, I’m kidding. This was nothing but strong. There was a mildly sweet aroma, but then there was the alcohol. There was a bit of decent malty sweet taste in there, but then there was the alcohol. Someone bought this for me who said it was better than a good barleywine. Was he out to lunch. This has no function other than inebriation. I won’t be having another!

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sweet beer with a strong taste abundant with alcohol. Bought in a liqueur barn at the Dutch/Belgian border. Cheap canned beer, that tastes almost the same as Grolsch Kanon. Probably the same beer. I have deducted some points from Kanon because it is canned.
