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...

Kita (971) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JUN 3, 2014
Bottle, 0.33l. Clear deep golden color with medium frothy white head and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of caramel and toasted malt, alcohol and with some medicinal notes. Taste starts with sweet toasted malt, follows by ripe dark fruits acidity and alcohol note with warming mouthfeel and light bitter finish. Medium body, slick texture and soft carbonation in palate. It could be better...

Can of 50 ml. Taste is good, the only drawback for me is its lack of feeling bubbles.Easy to drink regardless of its %7.9 alcohol volume.

Well isn’t thaaat speshcial? Made for the Francos, especially! Guess this 33cl bottle I’m drinking in Shenzhen is either smuggled or counterfeit, or none of the above. Noone would smuggle a pale golden beer with a foamy white head that smells like skunk and tastes like dank, alcoholic adjunct malt. This is the dutch equivalent of steel reserve which is either awesome or horrible depending on wheter you drink your beer out of a paper bag on the street corner or a chablis glass on the veranda of your lakeside condo.
