1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Can from local offie to celebrate my 2nd RB birthday. Well if it’s good enough for old Churchill it should be good enough for me.....no it’s shit. The looks are the only area it holds it’s own, golden amber with a medium head. Aroma of sweetish malts. Taste is sweetish malts, lots of tin and a rancid astringency that makes your tongue recoil. Slightly syrupy body. Awful.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
330ml bottle (Malaysia) as "Carlsberg (Malaysia) Special Brew" at 8.8%
Rought dusty maltlikka aroma, full of heavy esters, some fusils. Pale, brief head. Smooth sweetish palate, OK carbonation. Some almost nice toffee if you take a good glug, and let it sit on your tongue. Clean malt liquor. I don’t care what anyone else says, this isn’t a bad ML.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can : I was inspired to buy this because a tramp I often see on my daily jog drinks this as his crap-fuel of choice and I thought it was about time I "MAN up" and get like my tramp friend. I poured this in an Orval goblet just 4 fun!!! Pours pretty good, looks like a respectable Belgian. Grainy, rich malty and boozy aroma. Pretty clean and ok on the palate. Some green Apple, caramel,grain. Sugary and kinda creamy, some cardboard. A dry finish.A lot better than I would have bet!
