I always over look this type of stuff when I see it on the shelf in supermarkets, as the price tag puts me off - $4 - $7 for the big can. Seems like cheap shitty lager. I was quite impressed with it though. It had a firm malt flavour that hid the 12%abv well. No new hops to speak of, however the ballance was earthy with slight herb.

Moolesen (199) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 14, 2014
Bottle 33cl. Golden with a white head. Strong pils aroma and some buxus, not nice (maybe it had been stored too warm). Also sweet malt is in the nose. Obvious a rich taste where there is no sihn of the strong alcohol %. Taste is ok but not outstannding and surprisingly a short finish.

Een zwaar bier met een heel speciale smaak. Er gaan minder mensen fan van zijn dan van malheur of bush

kerenmk (2371) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - AUG 30, 2014
Draught at the 55 Drafts & More. In rishon le’zion, not nyc. Clear gold, white head. Smells of 12% abv and heavy on alcohol in the mouth too. Medium body, alcoholic finish and nasty. As nasty as i remembered it. But hey, it’s a rating. Pretty, nice to handle glass though.

Alengrin (1716) - BELGIUM - AUG 19, 2014
Another alcoholic strong lager in this series, with pretentious bottle. Thin, bit creamy, off-white head, colour golden blonde with warm orange hue, clear. Rather weak, sweet aroma of orange peel, orange juice, honey, iron, lots of brandy- and rhum-like alcohol and solvents. Sweet sugary onset, orange, medium carbonation, quickly overpowered by an astringent, way too strong alcohol effect, which makes the finish utterly unpleasant along with the sticky sweetness from the beginning.

Fin (7408) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2014
Can consumed at Truck Festival, Steventon, Oxon, Friday 18th July 2014 Loz’s less than impressed reaction was, along the lines of ’what the hell is this’ - ’a 12% beauty’ I tell her. This is proper park bench material. Golden in colour, quite heavy, hugely strong few redeeming features but if you want summat that’ll send yer’ blotto look no further. A5 A4 T6 P3 Ov11 2.9

Kosmokrator (484) - ITALY - JUL 12, 2014
Alla spina. Limpido color dorato con saponosa schiuma bianca. Al naso offre poco o nulla, solo lievi sentori di riso bollito e luppoli industriali. Gusto robusto ma sgraziato con note di malto, frutta passita, luppolo di bassa qualità e alcool; corpo generoso ma sbilanciato, struttura sciropposa e "attaccaticcia", effervescenza nella norma.

Can from Belgian beers Antwerp. Thin white head. Clear pale golden pour. Lots of alcohol. Ok.

Arôme légèrement fruitée , pas très gazeuse mousseuse; il faut dire que je l'ai gouté en canette... Et pour le coup... L'impression de boire une Pils avec de l'alcool de rajouter de dans Bref je ne sais pas si je vais la finir...

Solo alcol, puro tacchentissimo alcol. Riempie la bocca e i polmoni, senza soddisfare il palato sotto nessun punto di vista. Industriale e buona solo come compagna di serate guerresche.

Clear golden color. Full-bodied. Sweet with hints of pepper and slightly fruits in both aroma and taste.
