1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Tallboy from a shop in Earl’s Court. Pours orange/gold with transient bubbles. Aroma is malty? Med + body. Flavor is not too bad - no fusil oils. So it is drinkable without nausea. However, it’s really just alcohol. There’s no significant malt flavor, and same for hop. Wonder what Winston thought of it.

UPDATED: MAR 31, 2013 Not much to say about this. Quite alcoholic for a lager and very cheap, which are the only selling points.

Uninspired lager bought for its strong quick effects more than its taste. Has all the character of Carlsberg, golden carbonated and no head with a similar aroma, but a clearly stronger brew.

Typisch industriell hochgebrautes Zeug a la Faxe Strong. Industrie in der Nase, im Geschmack und oben drauf eine heftige Alkoholnote. Wenn es das fünfte des Abends ist und schön knallt, dann sicher eine geile Nummer. Aber als Starter echt heftig.

Can. Pours in in a deep gold and steady but low head and medium body. Taste of low malt, strong alcohol, cereals and mild fruits. Though it has such a high alcohol %, it is just dull and boring. Didn’t enjoy it.

UPDATED: FEB 6, 2013
325ml can at abv of 8.6 %. Golden colour; Small head and thin white foam which dissipates in 30 seconds. Minimal lacing and low carbonation. Smell of malt, grass and cardboard. Very strong sweet taste of malt, corn, lemon and hops. Medium to full body. Hop bitterness low to medium, with an uneasy sweet and then a sharp bitter finish, give me the feeling of they try to outdo each other. Alcohol taste is muted but kicks in very fast (after about 5 minutes). Dry after taste, fairly easy to mouth.
Comments: This is pretty low quality for a strong pale lager - faint smell with over and unbalanced taste in sweetness and bitterness, and an uncontrollable booziness which come too fast too soon. Overall not enjoyable. If getting stoned in a hurry is what you want then this is it. If you are looking for quality strong lager, better look elsewhere.

Dimly recall buying this in the late 1980s or early 1990s on the grounds that Lemmy drank gallons of it. It certainly does the trick, insofar as it’s widely available at newsagents and potent as fuck. Nothing special whatsoever, though, in terms of beer. Dark golden, fizzy, and sharply malty throughout, it’s a booze bomb, an iron fist.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can from Beer Ritz, Leeds. Pours a clear gold, small bubbly head that dies quickly. Aroma is lager malt and a hint of ammonia and skunk. Taste is sweet - almost Tripel-ish - with caramel, syrup and a hint of peach. A smack of bitterness at the start is a touch abrasive, and doesn’t balance the sweetness too well. Long, sweet finish, not at all unpleasant. Full bodied, a little creamy, with a bit too much carbonation. Viewed without prejudices, thus isn’t actually at all bad. There are far worse beers out there. Try to go into it as open minded as you can - you might be pleasantly surprised. I was.
