2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bought a 500ml can at the supermarket. The color clear blonde and the head a small and dissapears quickly, CO2 level is a little low. In the aroma light roasted malt and spices and the alcohol is noticable. The taste is light malty with a touch of sweetness. The warming alcohol is recognizable. The finish is fresh with a light bitter in the end.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bavaria 8.6) Can 500 ml at home, served into a glass tankard, ABV 8.6%
Deep golden colour on the body, tall white head, thick with good retention, leaving heavy lacing on the glass.
Aroma of malts and sugar, medicinal alcohol.
Very sweet taste, malty, not so alcoholic as I expected although the alcohol is there.
Medium body, okay carbonation.
Nothing special, good if you want to get drunk fast and a strong hangover the morning after.

Can. One thing I hate more than cheap watery maltose lagers, is strong cheap watery maltose lagers. This style add an extra layer of nasty alcohol to an already bad beer.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
50cl Can from AH. ABV is still 8.6%, there are 2 versions of this beer, both called Bavaria 8.6 Special Blond Beer. The 7.9% versions are usually found in France and the Netherlands. So the ABV of this one here has NOT gone down to 7.9%. Either way, a lot of fuss for a supermarket strong lager. Clear golden colour, thick frothy white head. Aroma of some alcohol, grass, sweet stuff, fusels. Flavour is actually quite dry and bitter, light hoppy, alcohol, sweet cheap malts and fruits, alcohol bitter finish, a bit hot. Medium bodied at best. Better than the 7.9% version.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
0.5l can. This one came rushing out of the hotel room fridge, landed on the floor and started squinting all over the hotel room.. Managed to save some in my glass though. Good mornings, this is a crystal clear golden one. A fizzing white lager head that quickly demolished into nothing. Smells strong, boozy with metal and cork tones. A bit of nice sweetness also here, strong malt sweetness. Not that good in the taste. I mean it is what it is, a strong pale lager meant to get you drunk. Oily above average. Metallic and boozy mess. 09.08.2014
