3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark golden, clear beer, well-carbonated to small, yellow head. Nose of alcohol, sherry, higher alcohols, and despite all this, delicate. Sherry again in the taste, sweet, but not too sweet; cookies and fine grains. Bit of alcoholwarming, not really dry; medium bodied. Nice, if not really Belgian, this is quite good, IMO. According to the brewery, this ought to be a Belgian Pale strong ale.

No Head, No Aroma. Really just an innoffensive Alcohol Delivery System. Nothing bad, nothing great either.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
323ml can with "brewed on" date three months prior. Dense gold color with absolutely no head. Medium-bodied, low carbonation, sweet flavor balance with a late hoppy bitterness. Coarse flavor balance with alcohol predominant. Stands out from the light lagers on the shelf in Singapore but not uniquely attractive.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This widely available malt liquor is often the only thing on Singapore supermarket shelves apart from Tiger and Heineken. It’s made with imported European hops and malts and I’d say it was a fairly decent knock-off of Carlsberg Special Brew, also occasionally found in these parts. I guess I’m in a minority in not minding either beer. Wouldn’t actively seek them out but most of the time I’d rather drink this than Tiger/Heineken. This was deep gold and held its head well. The aroma was soft, sweet and not especially beer-like. More like watery tropical fruit cordial and canned pear juice with some faint pale malts mixed with a shot of Vodka. Medium bodied and sofly carbonated, creating quite and oily mouthfeel. The first sip offers some Juicy Fruit chewing gum and marmalade fruitiness before a big blast of alcohol. There are some bready malts holding it all together. Lots of fusels in the finish. Call it sacrilege but this is like a very coarse, very distant relation to Duvel. (330ml can from a Singapore supermarket)

found this in vietnam. holy bad beer. this one pours just like a weak looking pale lager then you drink it and it overfows with bad off flavors and overpowering alcohol presence. cereal backbone of graininess, slighlty sweet.
