yespr (30689) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - APR 15, 2007

Ungstrup (29081) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 18, 2007
Bottled. A golden beer with next to no head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of alcohol and fruit, but also a light metallic note from the alcohol. The flavor is sweet with notes of caramel, fruit, alcohol, and metal, and the body is quite thick.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 6, 2007
(Can 50 cl) Clear, yellow with an off-white head. Sweetish aroma of malt and alcohol. Medium body with sweet malt notes and a brutal finish filled with bittering hops and alcohol. Hard to imagine, that this is an ale. It really resembles a primitive European Malt Liquor. And it’s a joke that this beer is now marketed in sophisticated 75 cl bottles as an exclusive product. One must laugh. 060507

joergen (20493) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 8, 2007
Bottlle. Clear golden coloured with a white head. Aroma of fruits, malts and alcohol. Sweet flavour of malts, caramel and alcohol.

oh6gdx (20217) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAR 20, 2007
Fancylooking bottle (thanks?!? for sharing goes to omhper!). "The original wifebeater beer". Golden colour, small head. Aroma is glue, alcohol, paper and very unpleasant. Flavour is glue, sweet malts, alcohol. Very malt liquorish...

omhper (19192) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 11, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2007 Bottled at Akkurat. Clear golden, brief airy head. Aroma of strawberry esters, glue and thinner. Extremely sweet with clean mouthfeel. Saccharine and syrup tries to keep the onslaught of alcohol back, but first some estery higher alcohols seep through and then in the finish the floodgates bursts open to the cheap grappa-like burning alcohol. Belgian malt liquor?

anders37 (16250) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUN 14, 2007
Bottle. Pours a clear golden color with a small white head. Sweet malty spicy alcoholic aroma. Sweet malty very spicy caramel flavor. Warming alcoholic finish.

madmitch76 (14304) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2009
22nd February 2008. Sweet aromatic malt with a sour note - much like the Gold - but this is more intense and with a subtle brandt note.

fiulijn (14294) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 6, 2006
Golden color. The aroma is too weak. The flavor is also not special, but drinkable; medium thick body, not oily, strong bitterness, the alcohol warms a lot in the end.

They didn’t need to put such a simple drinkable Strong Lager in a fancy 75cl bottle like that.
