OntBeerDrinker (432) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 5, 2014
Used to drink this yrs ago odd time & like it. Then last time didnít. 2-3 yrs later here I am again with a can. 500ML Little sweet and fruity smell. Fruity malty sweet taste. There is way better 10%er lager/maltís out there. Drank some of this can as a shandy with lemonade. Shady style:Cuts out a little of the sweet/gross parts but there is better lagers to add to lemonade. Some lemonade taste at times but more beer taste. Few sips in to start feeling it. Crap 10% lager I used to like but better then some lagers that is for sure. Wanna get fucked UP & donít care for taste try this. Bye.

wimpyjoe (3787) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2013
Can. A drink slowly lager given its strength, itís more than noticeable and makes any tastes redundant. The aroma is not bad, slightly sweet. Golden with a thick head.

worldbeertaste (1624) - AUSTRIA - SEP 23, 2013
Deep gold with a frothy, medium, lasting, lacy, white head. Smells of sugar, corn, vegetables, and of course, alcohol. Medium oily body with medium carbonation. Tastes of alcohol with a burn that you will remember with pale malt and some sweetness like sugar or honey. Iíve had whose but this is truly terrible.

tompete (209) - Tillsonburg, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 8, 2013
500ml Can. Pours a rich gold with a medium just off white head. Aroma of alcohol and a little malt. Flavour is hot with alcohol but quite rich and malty. The special German hops have a hard time breaking through. The finish is surprisingly not overly sweet for such a big beer. But it does still tend towards sweet with an alcohol bitterness in the very late finish.

DanielBrown (3789) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2013
Can from brother in law. I have to say, I rather enjoyed this. Boozy, pretty smooth. Lots of golden tobacco malt, with breakfast cereal honey. Drinkable certainly.

blankboy (6030) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 17, 2013
Can [500ml] shared with HogTownHarry, jercraigs & mabel -- c/o j&m. Pours a clear deep gold with a small frothy white head. Aroma is sugary sweet and corny along with vegetal notes. Flavour is boozy and has a harsh finish -- it gets worse and worse the more you drink it. Light to average bodied. Not the worse beer Iíve ever tried but itís still awful garbage.

jercraigs (7790) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 4, 2013
2013-05-24. Crisp orange body small frothy off white head. Aroma of grainy industrial malt, fair bit of alcohol. Flavour is similar grainy malt profile bodied palate, carbonation, modest bitterness. Average to light bodied palate. Pretty rough around the edges but less awful than I expected while chilled. Gets progressively worse as it warms though. Can from LCBO, Toronto

"If I went to some dangerous guyís house and he was like íDrink this!" Iíd be like íOkay!í"
