2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(33cl bottle thanks to bu11zeye) clear pale yellow with just a few bubbles hanging around, expected at 12%. Nose of honey, caramel, and apple. Taste of toasty caramel, grain, alcohol and honey. The alcohol really lingers on this one. The force carbonation is evident and annoying.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from a beer fair in Girona. It pours a clear golden liquid, with no foam. The aroma is boozy, but less than Finest Golden despite being 12%; there is a balanced mixture of hops and malt, but a little too sweet (caramel). It tastes accordingly to the aroma: hops, malt, alcohol (but nicely hidden) and a good deal of sweetness. It is a strong beer, but somehow it lacks taste, though. It is lowly carbonated and it has a low bitter finish, with a very sweet aftertaste. I wouldn’t recommend this one; it resembles too much its "Golden sister", with subtle differences. Not a very good beer (platinum??? boh).

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle - 330ml. Golden body with a thin, fading white foamy head. Its malty/hoppy aroma carries sweet and flowery hints. Alcohol is detectable. Taste is dominated by sweetness and alcohol. Some malty and bready notes are present as well. Ends with a short bittersweet finish. Deluxe rocketfuel.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle, 75cl corked, at Plan B. There’s some micro sized floaties in the else clear pour. Golden in color, and topped by a decent off-white head. There’s canned tropical fruits on the nose, with white sugar and lots of alcohol. The flavor is syrupy with tropical fruits and alcohol, full-bodied and warming. Lasting vinous finish. Vinous and unbalanced, a beer with too much alcohol, almost like a super strong french supermarket beer, except this one was much more expensive, and also the packaging looked much better. Been there done that. 100508

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
750ml bottle @ Plan B. Clear golden body with a diminishing white head. Aroma feels sweet and sticky from malt, sugar and alcohol with a hint of caramel. Flavor is sweet, way to sweet, candy sugar, some caramel, spicy and to much alcohol. A bit thin, but also sticky sweet body with alcohol in the finish. Not really bad, but some lack of balance and too sweet with to much alcohol flavor.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Thanks to Beer2000 for a sample of this one. Small white head over a golden body. Sweet aroma with rather bland fruits and alcohol. Tart and sweet fruits in flavour with a touch of caramel malts. A bit distracting alcohol vapour. Sticky sweetness (CBF, 08.05.2010).

Shared this one w/SkyCop32. Pours a nice Medium golden yellow color. Minimal fizzy white head, lasted maybe a minute or two. Aromas of light spices, a touch of brown sugar, and something vegetal. Flavor is lightly sweet and hints of spiciness. Touch of citrus. Not to bad, just not something I’d like more than a glass of.
