1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

Pours clear golden with no head at all. Aroma is weak, grains and grass. Taste is light sweet, alcoholic aftertaste. Not very good

Boks 1,0l fra Vinmonopolet, bestillingsutvalget. Delt med Rune under avskjedsrating i H9 - 3 Des 13. Lys gyldenbrun. Litt uklar. Høyt skum som etterlater mye lacing. Aroma av søt alkohol. Skarp alkoholsmak med innslag av mandler. Blir bare søt & alkoholisk og gir varme i kinnene. Vasken fikk mest!

Put simply this beer is too strong. I have drank others at similar strengths that are more palatable, but the alcohol content overpowers everything.

0.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
This is a really abysmal beer. Aroma is full-on alcohol and grain and the taste is worse. It’s so strong and overpowering, like gasoline in a glass.

Golden, not much head. Moderate aroma, with sweetness and hints of hops. The high alcohol content is not that evident. Round mouthfeel.

Shared 1 liter can, from Vinmonopolet, Nettbutikken. Pale golden colour, moderate white head. Moderate sweetish aroma, slightly fruity, a hint of hops - better than feared. Very sweet flavour, warming mouthfeel, some hops in the finish. Could have been worse.

Fra boks på RB-samling på Vistnes: scorer høyt på ppk-skalaen (promille pr krone). Overraskende lett å konsumere, alkoholen merkes først i magen selv om den gir en varmende munnfølelse.
