I had this beer many years ago at one time when I was only giving ratings to the beers but was too lazy and stupid to write down my thoughts. I will update this as soon as I get my hands on this beer again.

On can. Golden with a white head. Hay and grain in the aroma. Average carbonation and light body. Taste is sweet. Overall, a bit boring.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Not really expecting to enjoy (or finish) this one, but it’s a storied beer. Can, very cold. Gold with a white head that never quite gives up. Aroma is booze, hay, overripe grapes, some lemon and herbs, hints of firelighters. Taste is not so bad. It’s very sweet but underneath the alcohol is grainy malt that’s around clean enough and some herbs. Bitterness is crude but not that strong and keeps it just about sippable. There is a lot worse of this sort of thing.

una strong lager molto commerciale. al naso si sentono solo i malti e il caramello, al gusto ancora troppo maltata e dolce con leggero amaro finale. l’alcol la fa da padrone e la rende molto disequilibrata

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Cold 440ml can, 9%, BB Oct 2015. Drank this on a bench in my local park, whilst shouting at some pigeons. Clear golden orange, sparkling, small foamy white head doesn’t endure. Aroma is lager malt, sweet caramel, light boiled carrots, that cold minty alcoholic smell that comes off someone when they’re drunk. Body is medium, quite foamy, spritzy carbonation. Taste is sweet, sharp, dry and alcoholic. Paper and sake. Finishes boozy. Has a sort-of Belgian yeastiness to it too.
