Pours a deep golden. A sweetish aroma with some yeast. A sweet sweet beer, I found it very easy to drink. Kind of dangerous at 7.9% ABV. Can taste the alcohol but still very palatable. Not very complex, maybe some hop, quite malty, mainly sweet though.

2.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
330ml bottle at Gradska Kavana, old town Dubrovnik. Crystal clear, dark golden body. Decent, creamy-white head leaving lacing on the glass. Poor in aroma, except for some smell of hard water and alcohol. Sweet figs in flavour run over by harsh metallic alcohol. Medium bodied. Disappointing (25.08.2008).

Pours with a clear golden orange hue with a mostly diminshing white head. A lot of grain in the aroma mixed with some yeast, and alcohol.
Initial flavor is very sweet! - sweeter than i taste in some desserts and the beer goes down with a bitter-alcohol like after taste that lingers in the mouth for a very long time.
Oily mouthefeel and hard to drink because it is so sweet!

Thanks to emily who sourced this bottle from a foodstore somewhere in the vicinity of Gare du Nord, Paris. Copper gold with a white head. Sweet malty aroma. Oily mouthfeel and sweet sugary taste with plenty of alcohol. I quite liked this until the onset of the rather artificial plastic bitterness.

Bottle @ home. Golden orange, white head. Smell of grain and alcohol sweetness, some skunkiness. Taste is sweet, cardboard, skunky, typical malt liquor. Just a stronger and worse version of a pilsener.

Clear golden with medium white head. Sweet and somewhat boozy with caramel malt and grainy notes.

330ml bottle, served chilled. I first tried this in Paris around New Years, and was silly enough to buy it when I was back here in Australia when I saw it in a local bottle ’o. Dirty golden body with diminishing white head. Minimal aroma, slightly soapy, sweet like sugar syrup, ricey malt and fusel alcohol. Oily mouthfeel, sticky texture, moderate carbonation, alcohol manifests itself very early on. Cringeworthy sweetness on the body, sugary pear syrup, hot alcohol, and not the slightest hint of hops. Finish is warming and skunky. I found this really hard to drink, alcohol is not disguised very well at all.
