1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Now at 8% ABV: my 50cl can was obtained from a supermarket in Ste Maxime on the South of France and poured into two tumblers at my mates holiday villa on 17th Sep 2013 during a ’heavy can tasting evening’.
Good solid gold body with a white, short lived head.
Sweet and syrupy from the moment the can was opened, it was the sweetest by far of the high alcohol cans we tried.
Can’t really say much more, some alcohol traces, but even those were masked by the overpowering sweetness of the brew: I normally enjoy malty, sweet brews, but this was too much.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
50cl can in good company. It labels 8.0% ABV. And Extra Intense as subtitle. It pours a light copper to amber colour with a thin white head that disappears. Sweet hops and alcohol aroma. Medium to low carbonation. Too sweet flavour that turns it into a not so pleasant beer... Thank goodness I shared it!

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a clear golden yellow to orange color with a big white fluffy head. Medium retention and some lacings left
Too sweet and extremelly syrupy. Some sweet malts but, the sweetness is quite extreme and jeopardizes the taste. End is quite bitter as an unique positive point

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Canned, 0.50l. Clear golden color with large frothy beige head and average visible carbonation. Aroma of sweet malt, dark fruits and vanilla. Taste starts with sweet and rich malt, then followed by sweet fruity and strong alohol notes. Mouthfeel is mouth-coating, finish is mild bitter, while aftertaste is mainly sweet and spicy. Medium body, sticky texture and soft carbonation in palate. It’s a sweetie, but I kinda liked it...

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
After starting this beer (50cl bottle in Astana KZ airport bar), I was surprised to read all the negative comments. Both the aroma and flavour had a rich bready flavour; a very malty beer, but certainly not cloyingly sweet. There were sufficient hops and alcohol dryness to keep this beer in the pleasantly drinkable range. I didn’t get the strong carbonation that some people referred to; mine was less than moderately carbonated, but very smooth. The thin white head persisted throughout the drink and left nice lacing on the glass. The colour was pure gold and brilliantly clear. I really enjoyed this beer; very fresh and tasty.

1.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Aroma: Hay, sweet corn, bread, alcohol, minerals, candy. Not bad.
Mouthfeel: Very fizzy.
Taste: Sweet and alcoholic, but offensively so. No balancing bitterness that I can feel. Some apple fruitiness, too. Seriously unbalanced (No bitterness, no tartness).
Finish: Sweet and alcoholic.
Overall: I absolutely hate it. Didn’t even finish this one. Maybe with a ton oh hops it could make a fine brew.
