2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Head: off-white, small, frothy, poor retention. Colour: red-brown/chestnut, clear.
Aroma: caramel, malt/bread, dried fruit, alcohol when warms up. Taste: caramel, bitter, brown sugar. Very sweet finish. Quite a nice aroma, but the taste is so sweet, it feels like artificially sweetened.

This is a really nice lager beer. Goes down very smooth. The alcohol is high but balances with the malt and hop combination. I definately recommend this one.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Medium vast sticky but still pretty quick changing head. Ends in a lacing on top of a clear amber red colored beer.
Smell sweet grains, stingy grains, a hint of sweet (red) fruit, wheat, syrup, bleached grains, corn, caramel, barley malts, toasted malts, some slight hints of hops and something light soapy ish.
Taste is very strange, this beer wants to give you the impression itís sharp and stingy, it is, but itís mellowed down a bit by the fruity/malty character. There are sharp stingy grains, there is some red fruit and malts, some bitterness, hay, dryness, light spicy, grass, barleys.
Aftertaste is light dry with a dominating grass tone. Also slight hints of sharp ish hay, some dried old red fruit and malts.
Low carbo, soft mouthfeel, medium body and a light creamy texture.
Better than I expected still not that good and far far far from complex, pretty dull actually.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can [500ml]. If the alcohol is 7.9%, why is this called "8.6"? Anyway. Well it looks pretty good, Iíll give it that: Pours a deep ruby-red with an average size long-lasting frothy tan head and some lacing on the glass. Very mild aroma of alcohol, sugar, caramel malt and grain. Sweet flavour of sugar, sweet caramel malt, grain and alcohol -- if I drank the whole thing, and I wonít, it would get cloying fast. Average bodied. Iíve had worse but itís still way too sweet and boozy.
