Lattina. Il gusto al naso va verso l’orzo. L’intensità olfattiva è normale e la persistenza olfattiva è sufficiente. Il cappello di schiuma ha una discreta resistenza. La grandezza delle bollicine è media, come la carbonazione. L’aspetto del liquido è di limpidezza. Le bollicine sono fini. La carbonazione è abbondante, vivace, persistente ed insistita. Il colore è giallo dorato carico. Il corpo è rotondo. L’amaro è deciso. L’intensità gustativa è elevata. La persistenza gustativa è buona. Le sensazioni boccali finali sono luppolate per una birra impegnativa a causa dell’alta alcolicità. Il finale è setoso e semplice. Il retrogusto è di media intensità. L’aroma in bocca ritrova biscotto, orzo, frutta secca e alcol invadente.

I usually tends to rate hobo-trash beers way below the average RateBeer score, but surprisingly, i thought this one was rather okay for what it aims to be. The can states it contains the best German hops, considering the low price, i was expecting cheap Bavaria (and false advertising obviously) but it taste much better than most supermarket beers i know sharing the same alcohol level, really. It’s not great, but it’s much easier to drink than some others and hits its main goal without problem. I can’t really recommend it, but at least, i can say that this beer is PARTIALLY APPROVED BY TAVERNY’S BLACK METAL CREW!

Une strong pale lager, que le brasseur qualifie de premium lager, avec du barley malt et des « finest german aroma hops ». On va voir que la composition ne s’arrête pas à de si bonnes intentions, puisqu’il entre aussi dans cette bière du maïs (aïe!), du sirop de maïs (aïe, aïe!), de l’extrait de houblon (couac !), de la papaïne (extrait du latex de la papaye, qui peut aller jusqu’à un effet abortif … no comments please), et attention les yeux : de l’alginate de propylèneglycol (avec ça, à mon avis, on peut faire décoller un avion …). Couleur doré brillant clair. Bulles fines en colonnes droites, assez vives. Mousse blanc cassé qui nappe à 1 mm. Arômes de malt grillé, fruits confits, massepain, pointe de miel. 1ère bouche souple à l’entame malt/houblon correcte, avec une pointe de moutarde. Arrière-bouche un peu fruitée. 2ème avec un malt épicé, et le maïs qui passe maintenant. Arrière-bouche vague. 3ème où le maïs passe en premier, et gâche la bouche. Longueur sur la même ligne. Finale simplissime … CONCLUSION : une lager dans le style lager, sans plus, mais avec combien d’ingrédients encombrants !!! Le mot crest n’est que le crest of the wave !!!

Lager super da 8.4 gradi dal poco equilibrio e poco corpo, bocciata anche nel profumo... Proprio povera in tutto. ---Rated BY Italianbeer85

McDear (41) - Napoli, ITALY - SEP 3, 2014
Bevuta alla spina, colore dorato e limpido, schiuma fugace e poco persistente, profumo accattivante con toni aspri e marini. Sapore profondo e persistente con nette tonalità di liquirizia. Retrogusto forte e piacevole che evolve verso il caramello. Gradazione alcolica altina adatta a piatti di carne e formaggi.

jaghana (5525) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - AUG 13, 2014
Can 50cl, clear copper beer with low head. Aroma is on barley sugar, candied fruits, apple touch, bitter and astringent finish, vinous as a bad white wine, alcohol notes. Not outstanding as expected.
