Got this special French version while I thought it was the normal one. Bottle at home. Tasted better then I expected, I mean it’s a Malt Liquor...

500 ml can bought at a wine shop somewhere on Fuk Shing Path, Yuen Long.

Golden urine colour; Three-quarter finger head with crumpety white foam which last for about 2 minutes; Very good sticky lacing with active carbonation; Light aroma of malt, with light syrup, light floral, light peaches, light bread, faint lemon and thin grass; Medium sweet taste of malt, with syrup, floral, light wheaty tartness, bread, light lemon, very light bitter hops and faint grass; Medium body. Slick and quite oily palate; Mouth feel is fair maltyness in a thickand quite oily body, despite the presence of wheat with slight bits of tartness. No off taste, some floral, sweetness is surprisingly light, almost like molasses. Light bread and low hops. Clean and simple. Good!... Hoppiness is floral, light lemon and faint grass in nose and taste. Bitterness is close to very light, still tastable for a mostly sweet-low bitter finish; Slightly dry after taste. Quite nicely sweet and oily to mouth.

Comments:For a Strong Pale, this is surprisingly decent - fair maltyness, clean and no off-taste, sweetness is omnipresent but pretty low. The usual sweet bomb factor associate with the style doesn’t apply here. Easy and drinkable.

I actually picked this up not realizing the 7.9 ABV lol. Pours golden, nice white head. Aroma of strong boozy malts and corn. Flavor of malts, caramel, notes of hops. Boozy finish

Bavaria Special Blond Beer is best Bavaria Beer in my opinion. Very good aroma and taste (malty sweet). I really love this beer! Top recommendations.

Again a billionth lager or strong lager or pils drank in Canary Islands. This is far better than the gold version, which was undrinkable. Not much to tell here - very pale, a bit sweet, light bitter, thin. Bleh... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not too bad, very sweet malts and almost tastes cloyingly sugary. Don’t mind this at all.
