JaKeAFC (601) - ITALY - APR 21, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 24, 2014 33cl bottle, 7.2%, 0.70€. Yellow beer with a fine white head quickly reducing to a decent lace, some particles. Almost oderless. Moderate sweet malts, lots of grains, salt, alcohol and some grassy hops. Sweet tastw and moderate bitterness bite in the short finish. Texture tend to be oily, medium body, average carbonation. Straight forward to resembre a strong lager, nothing interesting.

Silvan7 (749) - Samarate, ITALY - JUL 8, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 23, 2013 Bottle from Tigros Supermarket. Non riesco a capire il perchè di rate così bassi. Non è male. Prima di tutto è indubitabilmente ad alta fermentazione anche se il sito dell’importatore dice il contrario. é una Biere de Garde anche se è inserita come imperial pils. Mi chiedo se sia la stessa birra...anche l’etichetta è differente, ma la marca ed il nome sono quelli. color oro carico, non del tutto limpida con una schiuma compatta e persistente. Il profumo è interessante con note erbacee un luppolato aromatico e un buon profumo di malto che ricorda quello belga. In bocca ha poco corpo, forse è la parte peggiore, non stuzzica il palato, ma il gusto è decente, pieno, fresco erbaceo e con un caldo alcolico discreto, non invadente. Il finale è quasi assente.

thirstyrabbit (1152) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 6, 2013
Small bottle. Golden body, small head. Aroma has honey, light hops and some hints of alc. Taste starts sweet but seconds later the sharp booze starts to emerge. Booze bitterness becomes more apparent in the finish. Has just a bit more of sweet hops in it than the local Eastern-European samples of the style, but otherwise it’s pretty much the same.

Quack-Duck (8072) - Down South, GERMANY - JAN 6, 2013
bottle. Clear golden colour, mid-sized white head. Pleasantly hoppy nose. Full-bodied, malty base with some rather aromatci grassy-resiny hops.

rosenbergh (7370) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 29, 2012
330 ml bottle. L14.4.08. BB 06/10/12. From bierzwerg.de.
Clear pale golden golden colour with small white head. Malt and skunky hops in aroma. Some plastic too. Flavour is... not good... bad.... eeeuuuhh... Malt, alcohol and more stale malt. Very unpleasant. Plastic, strong alcohol and stale malt. Hit material.

tseo (153) - Athens, GREECE - JUN 3, 2012
Aroma: Grassy, metallic, earthy, slightly citric aroma. Not appealing. Mouthfeel: Sticky, lively, not very big. Taste: Neutral to sweet, honeyish, a bit metallic. Alcohol is well hidden. A little peppery (from the hops?). Finish: Flat and malty, a bit metallic. Overall: Definitely malty. So-so strong beer. I could mistake it for a generic lager. A good refresher, nothing more.

mile (3123) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 1, 2012
Bottle. Golden, small and fully diminishing head. Light to moderate, malty and sweet aroma, caramel and light alcohol. Body is medium, malty and sweet flavor, caramel and some alcohol. Finish is short to average, malty and sweetish, some caramel and light alcohol. Sweet strong lager with caramel - that’s it.
