Ya, I chose this for the high alcohol content and it definitely has an alcohol burn AND bite to it. Other than that, it was kinda skunked with some cron and rice ? flavors... nothing too exciting.

Sampled in germany. Very pale gold color with a minimal head. Good strong pale malt backbone with some wierd herbal and grassy hints. My notes say that an alcohol presence is noticed throughout the beer.

UPDATED: JUL 20, 2008 (Bottle 50 cl) Golden with a small but rather creamy and very white head. Pronounced alcohol but just about no aroma. Just a very strong lager. 200604

This wasn’t my pick, but of course i wanted to sample it. Typical malt liquor, highly alcoholic, sweet and lacking bitterness.

Eh ... not as bad as I expected from the reviews below. Basically tastes like an American macro on steroids. Clear gold in color, small white head; slightly sour malt aroma ... sweet malt, corn and alcohol taste-wise; a touch of hop bitterness on the end ... seems like a mere afterthought, though. Meh.

Bottle...although I don’t think draught would’ve helped matters much. Poured out a very pale yellow-gold...minimal head. Skunk-malts dominate the aroma....and they got skunkier as it warmed in the glass. The flavor was dominated by sweet malts, some bitterness, but I fear it was due to something other than hops. You can sense the alcohol...there was nothing else there to mask that. Yep...EuroColt45. Blah.

Bottle poured a golden bodied beer with a lasting, frothy, white head. Lightly malted, stagnant aroma that was tinny and medicinal. Brandy aromas while warming. Non-descript sour, stale flavor. Left me with a confused/annoyed look on my face.
How ironic... I gave it an overall 9.

This beer is strong, that’s about it. Tastes like it was strained through a newspaper.
