1 L can. Pours clear and golden orange with a crispy light yellowish head. Solid spiced corn and alcohol aroma. Flavour is sweet cornish and fruity. Holds a solid alcohol smoothness at first which quickly goes into a solid warming to even burning feel. Ends quite alcohol dense.

500 ml can from the LCBO. i was really feeling like punishing myself so i slurged the $3 on this hpoing for a 0.5 rating. im dissapointed it was wasnt worse. pours lovely golden with an active tan head. steady carbonation. light aromas of malts are overwhelmed by alcohol. flavours are actually ok with some light maltiness. the alcohol is there but doesnt affect my palate as much as the aroma would indicate but the body is watery. not the worst thing ive ever had but not something ill likely ever buy again.

500ml can sampled from a friend. There had to be something wrong with my palate that night, but this was actually not too bad. Plenty of licorice on the nose and tongue. This brew was just a burst of licorice, with candy and... medicine? Granted it wasn’t fantastic, I still think it was a pretty decent drink. I think it’s a good beer to have if one is poor and looking to get hammered. Otherwise, there’s plenty of other choices.

When compared to Polish strong lagers, it’s awesome in the way in which the alcohol is hidden here. Doesn’t taste as it had 10%, but has little flavour at all. Some bitter notes in finish, otherwise rather plain. Fast killer.

Best beer to drink if you want to have your head in the toilet in the quickest amount of time for the least amount of money. I tell my friends that modern human beings are not ment to drink fax. Fax was made for Vikings 500 years ago. One is almost better off drinking windshield washer fluid.

If you want to get drunk and slightly cheaply try faxe, Taste wise is alcohol with a strong taste but this is Ontario and 6 500ml’s at $18 isn’t that bad if it takes alot to get you drunk. Almost tastes like a bad weed and malt liquor combo

This is my first rating..feels good. I like this beer. There is a time and place for everything; yes, even Faxe 10%. It may not taste the greatest, one may go so far as to say it taste like steel. I wont lie, it does taste/ smell similar to a iron clad battleship saturated in gasoline, but it also has the same power. Powerful stuff. cheap, tolerable and does its purpose.

500ml can, purchased about three years ago. Has been stored in widely fluctuating temperatures which has turned other beers stored this way into swill. Luckily, I perceive no difference in this beer. This beer will get you there but yes, chill it down and don’t drink it first. The only reason to drink this brew is to get drunk, and even then...

Canette de 500 ml achetée chez ANBL (Paquetville, N-B). Arôme: Odeur de malt. Apparence: La couleur est blonde orangée avec une faible densité de bulle. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût fruité et d’alcool. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture huileuse. Faible effervescence en bouche. Légère présence d’alcool en arrière goût. (Rating #1417)

Clear coppery pour, sticky but thin head. GRassy scent. Boozy weed like taste that is pretty unpleasant. Had a real hard time finishing this one. I’m pretty sure there are cheaper ways to get drunk.
