This lager poured a clear, light yellow colour with a quick living, bright white head. Scents include wine, grape juice, fruit punch and candies. First swig was amazingly watery with very light flavours of fruit candy and a light hop flavor. Finish is very light with a slight sour flavor lingering with a malty, bread like flavor.

Botella de 33 cl de el c. Ingles. Tomada en julio de 2000 (con fecha de cons pref para 17-2001. lote 16:27327DO). Versión de 8.6 vol. Sin mucho que resaltar salvo la sensación alcohólica de sus 8.6 vol, ligeros sabores maltosos y dulces. Una sorpresa en su momento. Normal.

I have a beer sitting near me that is around 12% abv. Next to it are two beers around 9% and others over 8%. With this in mind I don’t know why I have had trepidation about reviewing this beer. Perhaps is that this beer isn’t a Quadrupel, an Imperial Russian Stout or Imperial IPA. It is potentially designed to be misleading and has a reputation for being the drink of choice of the piss-stained hairy-arse who is abusing traffic and is actually some sort of reclusive millionaire heir that his family has been looking for for twenty years. Big, golden lager with a fluffy white head. It tastes like its 5% younger sibling but contains a threatening unctuous alcoholic warmth to it that, if I’m honest, could be a lot worse. It finishes with the nod that it is is your classic pale lager, but will nut you if you look at its sister. One can will do for me for the time being I think.

Can at a house party. 7.9% version. Sticky sweet malt aroma. Body is medium, pretty foamy. Taste is tangy malt, some pure ethanol. OK.

Can from Centra, Mohill [250714]
Golden, clear, frothy white head, some lacing
Aroma of light malts, some soft light caramel, soft corn syrup, dab of alcohol
Taste of light caramel, soft light caramel, dab of corn syrup, slight fruits, alcohol noticeable
Palate - medium carb and body, quite sweet, alcohol. Finish as main flavour, warming alcohol, a bit rough
Overall - Only had a couple of mouthfuls, wasn’t as terrible as I thought it would be

Except if you want to keep a high alcoohol presence in your blood it doesn’t have any interest. The homeless luxury beer.

Diese Bier heisst anders als sein Alkoholgehalt, anscheinend hatte es mal 8,6%. Auch mit 7,9% ist dieses Bier eine Wucht. Farbe und auch Geruch sind appetitlich und mit starken Gewürzgeruch. Antrunk ist ziemlich bitter und man merkt den deutlichen Alkoholgehalt. Dies muß man mögen. Insgesamt ein würziges schweres Bier was gute Ansätze hat. Der Körper ist mir persönlich etwas durchmischt - ein Sammelsurium an Würze - was erst durch Abgang einigermassen zusammenkommt.

Awful. Poured a clear yellow. Strong smell of alcohol. Almost smells like a cheap bottle of wine. Way too sweet for a beer with a 7.9% ABV.
