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.

Amber mid brown coloured and very strong in alcohol. Slightly malty flavour in a dry finish.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can purchased at some shop near Paddington station in London, and consumed in my hotel room. Pours a translucent sparkling golden, with a frothy eggshell head- a very nice looking commercial beer. Aroma of sweet bready malts and a wisp of herbal hops, and as it warms, some butterscotch notes. Light bodied but not watery or prickly like american pale lagers. Flavor of sweet pale malts that is countered by a mild, but detectable spicy bitterness. I am not picking up much alcohol on this for something at 9%. Nothing spectacular, but not offensive either. This must be the British version of Colt 45? If so, much better than American malt liquors. Just don’t spill any of this in your room, it stinks the place up.

Not what I expected, very smooth, not harsh at all, hard to tell it’s a full strength lager, I’ll probably feel it in the morning, but really quite impressed how they pulled this one off

500ml can, shared with flatmate. Pours pale gold with a small head. Aroma is sweet malt, cooked vegetables and Oxo cubes. Taste is sweet and that’s pretty much it. Very thin but hides the alcohol really well. Very sweet aftertaste.

Can. High and lasting creamy white head. Clear golden body with a lot of bubbles. Sweet barley malt with what seems to be perfume. Flavor sweet and dry wtih a hint of the alcohol but little hops bitterness. If you want to get drunk quickly this is it. To me it is too sweet with low carbonation but OK long sweet aftertaste.

Bottle - I’m sure most of the target market dont possess bottle openers I thought it only came in cans. Cloves, almond, alcohol and faint suggestion of hops in the aroma. Slightly sweet with spiciness and occasional cheap vodka flavours. Not bad but has some rough edges.

Can, Malaysian version, alc. 8.8%
Dark golden color, good creamy off-white head. Aroma is sweet alcoholic with grainy notes. Medium-bodied. Sweet malty, alcoholic as can be expected. Quite balanced and warming, solid European strong lager.

(Can 50 cl) Courtesy of Bov. Pours a clear, deep golden with a dense, white head leaving some laces. Sweet aroma of malt and alcohol. Quite full-bodied, very sweet with lots of brewing syrup and some fruity notes. The bitterness is a bit crude. But for the style this is quite OK. 080707

A malt liquor in the truest sense of the word, brewed for strength rather than taste. It’s drinkable (even if you aren’t a British vagrant) but it lacks much to distinguish it. Still, it’s tons better than Tennent’s Super Lager, the main competition for the streetcorner lush.
