Shaney (2428) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - DEC 31, 2013
Goldgelbes Bier mit Schaum, der in Nullkommanix verschwunden ist, sieht aus wie Apfelsaft nach 2-3 Sekunden. Synthetisch-süßlich-parfümierte Hopfennote. Widerlich spritiger Antrunk mit Tonnen voll Zucker und künstlicher Marzipannote. Klingt plörrig und durch und durch spritig aus. Nie wieder!

zvsn (565) - ISRAEL - DEC 14, 2013
On-tap. Clear golden with a small white head. Sweet fruity and alcoholic aroma, with some perfume and floral notes. Taste - very sweet and alcoholic with rough medicinal bitterness and cough syrup flavors. Light-bodied, hard to drink. More liquor than a beer.

ruigo (1072) - PORTUGAL - DEC 6, 2013
Shared a 50cl can from Delhaize (Luxembourg). Pours a flat clear yellow colour with almost no head. Aroma is sweet (like Bayley’s says my wife) and alcohol. Average carbonation and light body. Flavour is more sweet than bitter with vanilla and alcohol notes. Overall, a boring and too strong beer. Drinkable, though.

vipinvelp (2140) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - NOV 2, 2013
Clear dark yellow with small white foam ring, lacing. Aroma is mainly sweet high alcohol pilsener, so is taste. Alcohol dominated. (Velp 201312) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dull character, with almost not aroma nor taste, only a too alcoholic aftertaste.

RuneStumo (2173) - FØRRESFJORDEN, NORWAY - SEP 20, 2013
17.08.2013. 0,33l Bottle. Golden colour with white head. Sweet with way too much alcohol. Low on both taste and bitterness.

MichaelAwesome (3920) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 23, 2013
Irgendwie ist es so derb und ekelhaft, dass man Schwierigkeiten hat, es zu beschreiben. Melasse mit Honig und ganz viel Alkohol. Dazu noch etwas alte Socke und Ansätze von karamell. Dick, derb, mufflig, heftig. Nie wieder werde ich das mir antun müssen. Es sei denn, ich will betrunken sein. Doch dafür gibt es Schnaps.

McTapps (3923) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 23, 2013
Can. Like expected it was a beer to get sick of. Clear golden Cologne, low head, smooth body. Nose of sweet hops and malt. Very sweet taste of caramel, brown sugar, malt and hops. At the same time it has got a dumb bitter-metallic part which makes it even harder to drink. Awful, dull, overpowering stickysweet-metallic.

Holmen1 (2378) - Stavanger, NORWAY - AUG 14, 2013
0,33 flaske deltmed Willy, som hadde den med hjem fra Spania: syltynne skar både hva aroma og smak angår. Imponerende at det går an å lage så sterkt men allikevel smakløst øl. En kvalmende sødme vil være det jeg husker den for. Finest, my foot.
