LBarouf (113) - Ontario, - NOV 17, 2012
500ml can Pours a pale gold with a large white head, quickly dissipating. The aroma is actually not purtrid, pale malts and fusel alcohol with some okay hop presence. Almost comes off as a bit fruity as I sometimes get from these types of beer. Flavour is surprisingly drinkable for the abv. Starts out with sweet malty, possibly adjuncty aspects, the same odd indistinct fruityness, followed by a significant ’bite’ from the sharp, peppery hops and the booze. Finishes out decently on the palate, not too harsh, though you know what you’re drinking. This is actually quite passable, and for what it’s worth I enjoyed it far more than the other ’Faxe Strong’ (not the 10% one but the 8.4%).

Pale golden color, mid-sized white head. Aroma of malt , alcohol and metal. Taste is not so bad , but nothing good too: malty with light alcohol bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Canned. Strange aroma - sweet and alcohol :). Interesting balance. But at all - nothing special in taste. Try it and forget..

pictoman (429) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 8, 2013
Poured from 500mL can. Pale clear yellow with minimal white head. Banana aroma on the pour, mild corn and yeast nose. Mild flavour of corn and yeast, with some alcohol flavour. Nice body for a lager, not watery.

Perhaps it was unfair to have this beer right after enjoying a Gulden Draak, so by comparison,,,,,,,,well, you can’t....

small frothy white head. fair lacing. fully diminishing. clear average-density dark yellow body. aroma: heavy hoppy, honey, light bread. if and ff: moderate sweet light bitter; average duration. palate: light medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, metallic moderate alcoholic finish. sente-se pronunciado sabor de álcool no final do gole, prejudicando o restante do paladar, que, caso contrário, seria bem mediano em relação às Pale Lager brasileiras 6 s

Lagerboy (1173) - British Columbia, CANADA - APR 28, 2012
Clear yellow gold, foamy white head fades. Strong malt liquor aroma. Strong fruity malt liquor taste, some casual bitterness. Boozey thick and slick, but oddly drinkable. Softly carbed, light - medium bodied. Fruity boozey finish. LF (Lagerboy Friendly)
