From a can. Golden color, with a thick crown. Decent aroma, but mostly just an alchoholic kick in the butt. Imagine a slightly better than average pale lager with grain alchohol added.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - SEP 13, 2006
65 cl. (This version says 7,9% alc.) No yeast at the bottom. Golden clear colour with a fizzy white head. Malty aroma of notes of alcohol and grain. Flavour of sweet malt and alcohol, ends up with a bitter and hoppy finish.

Canned. Golden coloured. Clear. Dense light beige head. Very sweet and alcoholdense aroma. Flavour is sweet and fruity. Alcohol notable but not overwhelming. Medium bodied. Sweet end. Quite warming. No bitterness.

Found this one on label but with the othe rin alcohol. So have to rate them both. IT was the same, sweet but too alcoholic.

Dorqui (2095) - Brescia, ITALY - JUN 11, 2006
Canned 0,50L. Adherent and compact foam, good persistence. Yellow color, lightly orange one; loads and bubbly. Moderated scent, malt and alcohol notes. Fresh and decided taste. Full bodied and extinguished vanished finish.

While this rating is the same in score as the Bavarian Red, this is a better beer except for the poor malt liquor aroma. A smooth beer, really, with the alcohol coming through in the end but not as strong, so that it´s more enjoyable. The alcohol is more noticeable in the effect than the taste.

Nagash (207) - Paris, FRANCE - MAY 15, 2006
Same thing than the original Bavaria 8.6, but the alcohol taste has been decreased to avoid the french taxes now applied on all beers with a alcohol degree --> 8° Hard to drink, strong caramel taste, orange too. But better than the original one.

Fukito (733) - Sao Paulo, BRAZIL - APR 8, 2006
Bottle - March 2006 Pours a golden color with a white head that rapidly diminishes and a vivid carbonatation. Aroma is of yeast and somewhat skunky. Taste is sweet, almost cloying and has an alcohol burnt to it. Aftertaste is almost non existant. Not offensive but boring.

Sigmund (4958) - Tau, NORWAY - MAR 13, 2006
650 ml very dark blueish green bottle, bought in France. ABV is 7.9%. Golden colour, large lasting head, decent lacing. Malty and fruity aroma with some alcoholic notes, but not unpleasant. Hints of oak and leather. Flavour is very sweet, but surprisingly it is not as repulsive as many other (often less sweet) golden strong lagers. Tolerable hops obviously contribute to a (nearly) acceptable balance. Moderate carbonation. I’ve had worse beers.

Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 12, 2006
(Bottle 33 cl) Pours a clear amber with a red, peachy hue and a creamy, off-white head that sticks to the glass. Sweetish, perfumy nose with some alcohol. Full, sweetish body with some caramel and sherry accents, but mainly it’s just alcoholic. Some fruity, perfumy notes. Very discreet bitterness. 120306
