This beer was a pleasant surprise. Large bottle, nice color, good taste. Maybe for this high alcohol percentage i would expect the taste to be equally stronger, but that is not the case.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours golden ochre with a foamy head (that fades quickly to some lingering bubbles).
Aroma is sweet, grainy, and yeasty. Mouthfeel is light with medium carbonation.
Drinks smooth with a lightly hoppy sweet malty taste. Barely lingers on the tongue with a hint of bitterness.
I'm not typically into lagers but this is not bad for the style.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle poured a golden color with a cap of white head that fell off. Aroma has sweet malts, grain, and a bit of fruit. Mouth feel is light and the carbonation lower than a typical lager. Flavor centers around sweet malts, plenty of maltose syrup giving a boozy hit, and some yeasty fruits. Drinks like a malt liquor of the lager world.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
UPDATED: JAN 12, 2014 Bottle 50 cl. Light golden color with big white frothy head. Taste is hay, sweet malts, caramel, grass, lemon, alcohol. The alcohol taste is too much present in this one while the other flavors not balancing it enough. Some bad kind of yeastiness in the finish. Finish was quit bad, reminds me little of "kilju" aftertaste ugh.

Nothing special about this beer in my opinion. You can give it a try though if you find 1 liter cans.
