Nose is good (for a larger) cereal and malt. Taste is cereal, grain, sugar a little honey and a slightly too boozy finish. The malts overwhelm and there is not much in the way of hop. Mouthfeel is good and full. It’s not bad for a larger but too sweet

Holmen1 (2467) - Stavanger, NORWAY - FEB 22, 2014
Flaske (gave fra Petro) pĺ Holmens aktivitetsdag feb-14, under stegmeskingen: nydelig farge men trekk for kort skum. Myk Saazaroma og slank munnfylde for sine 7,6. En riktig god og varmende pilsner.

johndoughty (3974) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2014
Bottle. Amazingly bought from my local Co-Op. Very bronze with a welcoming malty aroma. Matiness dominates with plenty of body. This is ordinary Bud with an attitude. Interesting.

darkseduction (594) - Zweibrücken, GERMANY - JAN 20, 2014
Flasche 33cl. Rotblondes Bier mit mittlerer Schaumkrone. In der Nase erdig-grasiger Hopfen. Leicht säuerlich. Im Nachtrunk relativ flach, extrem flach eigentlich für ein Starkbier. Hatte wesentlich mehr Aroma erwartet nach angeblich 200 Tagen Reifung. Der Saazer Hopfen kommt definitiv besser beim normalen Budvar rüber. Schade, statt Raffinadezucker hätte man vielleicht besser mehr Malz verwendet.

Bottle at Krah Krah, Vienna. Golden to amber clear body wih thin white head, that qickly disappears completely. Aroma of grain, grass, caramel. Taste of grain, grass, bread, herbs, sugar, pretty sweet, little bitter, also slightly sour. Medium mouthfeel, average carbonation, grainy sweet and slightly alcohol warming finish. Overall pretty boring and a bit too sweet.
