Svesse (6137) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - AUG 30, 2014
(Draught at Prvni Pivni Tramway, Prague, 18 July 2014) Golden colour with creamy, white head. Malty, fruity nose with notes of bread, tropical fruit, pineapple and peaches. Malty, fruity taste with tropical fruit, pineapple, bready malt and a balanced grassy bitterness. More than medium body, with a certain malt sweetness. A bit sweet and strong, but tasty enough. Quite nice.

Gurthnar (1720) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - AUG 28, 2014
Bottle from Tesco. Aroma shows the strength, malt coming through and moderate hops aroma. Clear golden colour, quickly disappearing white head. Taste is simple, delivers what is promised and nothing more. Strong malty presence, moderate warming alcohol, moderate bitterness. Overall well made and scaled down to 12° without the alcohol, this would probably be a good beer. As is, it does not have much to offer.

Aroma of sweet malts, hay, alcohol. Flavour is nasty malty sweetness with an alcohol punch. Another Imperial Pils failure.

MichaelAwesome (4070) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 13, 2014
Bottle shared with McTapps. Offers some thickness with a vanilla, malt and alcohol in the aroma. But that alcohol is well balanced so we have got here an easily drinkable beer with a heavy and malty background. A perfecting tasting piwo to knock you out.

McTapps (4070) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 13, 2014
Bottle from Tesco in Ryde. Pours out in a deep golden colour with low airy head and medium body. Aroma of mild hops and mild malt. Taste of mild, sweet hops, caramel, leaves, malt, sweet bread and flowers. Alcohol not very well hidden. Drinkable but nothing to really enjoy.

Grzesiek79 (3203) - Radom, POLAND - AUG 8, 2014
No piwo ladnie wyglada zloto jasno bursztynowe z babelkami i z sniezna i biala piana, niestety niezbyt trwala. Zapach pomaranczy oraz cydru jakby. Nieco brzoskwiniowego musu. W smaku konkretnie slodowe i slodkawe z niewielkim zaznaczeniem chmielu zateckiego w oddali. Cukier zbyt wyczuwalny, a alkoholu jakby na szczescie sie nie wyczuwa, ale w koncowce o sobie przypomina. Wszystko to bylo by znosne gdyby nie nadmial slodkiego cukru w tym piwie. Piwo nalezy traktowac jak ciekawostke

0.33L bottle. Clear golden with a minimal white head. Rich aromas. Butterscotch, overripe fruit, alcohol. Fairly decent flavor profile right up front with a mild, sweet, bready malt. This quickly goes to herby hop bitter, and the beer finishes fairly dry with some lingering alcohol . Medium body with an oily mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Overall, pretty tasty beer. Rich aromas, and a nice balance of malt to hops.

330 ml bottle. A1. BB 10/03/2015. (Spar) Prague, Czech Republic.
Clear deep golden colour with a tiny white head. Sugary sweetness, alcohol and strong malt in the aroma. The flavour is strong malt, mild grassy hops, mild bitterness and sugary sweetness. I really prefer the original Budweiser (Budvar).

Green 0.33 litre bottle, labelled ’Premium Select’ for the UK market: BBD 2 Oct 14, drank at home on 18 Jun 14. Good dark old gold colour with no head at all. Fairly sweet malty nose and taste, with the alcohol in evidence from the first sip. I was thirsty, so enjoyed it, but it is not a great lager, strong or otherwise. Just a bog standard strong lager that cost a lot more than the cheap equally poor options available all over the world.
