Summat deeply weird’s going on here, but my friends and I were more than keen on trying a beer that sounds a bit like "Halifax" and was for sale in Berlin for under the minimum unit price in the UK in ridiculous litre cans at 10%. Imagine blending any old lager in with a bag of pick’n’mix, possibly including the pick’n’mix wrappers, and you have Faxe. Don’t expect to be able to open your eyes properly after having it. Drunk from the can as it slowly went to room temperature, at which point it tasted like summat you’d find under the settee. Don’t know whether I’m rating it cruelly or kindly.

Big can split at Chris & Ruth’s pre GBBF Shindig, 07/08/16. Clear golden with an off white head. Nose is raw grains, cereals, caramel, sweet esters, varnish. Taste comprises mellow fruits, lemon, grains, pale malts, bread. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with a boost. Ok for style.

TrefwoordPunk (983) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - OCT 18, 2016
Can 100 cl. Pours a clear golden with a small white head and an aroma of alcohol, sugar, ripe apples, sweet malts and syrup. The last is very sweet and boozy with just a little bit of hoppy bitterness in the finish. Totally forgettable

August 2016 - Big boy 1 litre can share at Chriso’s Pre-GBBF Shindig, Day 1. Thanks! As Faxe 10%. So, people drink litres of this 10% beer in one go? Wow. Dark yellow orange, clear, lightly sparkling, big foamy white head, full lacing. Aroma is papery, apple, malt sugars, musty. Body is light, soft carbonation, a bit foamy. Taste is papery, booze, crackers, light bread. Drinks well, hides the ABV, good value for those only concerned with alcohol content. Not as bad as I was expecting. (2.6)

Can sample at a tasting at Tom L’s place. Thanks Shmupi. Clear golden. Aroma of acetone, graininess, fruity hint. Sweet flavor with honey, graininess, acetone, and an alcohol hint. A bit sticky.

Jumbo can shared at the chriso and Ruth pre GBBF Shindig 2016 - London. Day 1. Pours totally clear gold with a creamy, white head. The nose holds cereal, light dough, and hay. Medium sweet flavour with suggestions of tangerine, alcohol, more dough and hay. Light to medium bodied with smooth, massaging carbonation. Sweet finish, simple and straightforward. Solid malt liquor.

SinH4 (3175) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - SEP 9, 2016
Can. Orange color with white head. Aroma is sweet malts, quite sugary. Taste is the same, a bit spicy, a bit wet paper/cardboard. The alcohol is well hidden. Not as bad as expected.

Pre-GBBF 2016 tasting at Chris&Ruth’s, Day-1. It pours a clean golden color with no head. Aroma is tangy starchy sweet with some grand and alcohol. Light bodied with light carbonation. Overall, meh

Bardzo mocne piwo, wyraźnie słodki aromat. Piana słaba, średnio nagazowane. W smaku słodowe, niewielka gorzyczka. Alkohol dobrze ukryty.

The great ChrisO pre GBBF gathering. Can. Bright clear gold beer, tidy white head. Palate is light, semi dry and has decent carbonation. Very sweet malts. Banana esters. Little dried fruits. Light dry finish. Clunky but not terrible.
