McTapps (3959) - 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.

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.

Countbeer (4397) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - JUL 16, 2013
Can: Served in an Ikea taster (?): Yellow pour. Medium sized, lively and quickly changing (into a thin small island lacing) off white foamy head on top of a clear yellow colored beer. Aromas of grains, corn, malts, liquor, dust, pee, cardboard, honey and clay. Flavours of grains, sharp, iron, spicy, some bitters, hay, warmth, light floral (cause of the hay tones), liquor... Malt liquor! Aftertaste is warm, grains, corn, spices, lesser sharp and some liquor again... Low carbo, soft creamy mouthfeel at first than it’s really spicy (alcohol wise), medium to full body (because of the spiced up tone because of the alcohol) and a creamy texture. What the fuck, unbalanced, nasty, too strong and noticeable and just boring with too much grains and alcohol burn... One can is way too much!

Cerveza excesivamente alcohólica y se nota. No termina de aportar realmente nada, pero no es tan horrible como sugiere la gente en los comentarios. No creo q repita.

Surprising beer... In the wrong sense. Very high alcohol and price for a caramel flavoured pilsner type of beer. Quite disappointing.

thanatosti (905) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 15, 2013
50 cl. can @ home, bought somewhere in Belgium. Old yellow with a thin white head. Sweet aroma. Supersweet taste due to the alcohol with a metallic sidetaste. Really bad.

gEUS (1047) - Linden, BELGIUM - MAY 3, 2013
750 ml bottle at home - taken from notes. Freaking hell... so low in taste but so high in alcohol. Nooooo, this is beer hell. Very metallic taste, no aroma at all, palate is very stringent. Probably one of the baddest beers ever. (Tasted July 2010). Even a 3 year old lambic is cheaper than this. F*ck.

Just did a 50 cl. can of this outside with my team manager, straight for, the can chilled. This is what I see the bums drink when they have some extra cash. Taste is a grainy, industrial strength BE pilsner with light windex citrus and over rubbing alcohol, raw and upsets the stomach easily like the other swill Gordon’s. It is an easy way to get drunk if you don’t mind being nauseous. Quite light and clean in an industrial rubbing alcohol way. XXXstrength according to the can.

SilkTork (5218) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2013
500ml can from Carrefour, Namur, Belgium. Lovely shimmering gold colour. I struggle a little with drinking the beer, even though I do love a strong lager. This is crude - very sweet and plastic, and with that horrid false whiskey flavour intruding everywhere. It’s drinkable though, and has to be one of the best value for money alcohol buzzes I’ve bought.

Again a very bad beer from this serie. Very sweet and burning alcohol. No hops, no malt, nothing but sugar, sweeteners and alcohol.
