   AROMA 4/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 4/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 8/20
BigMomma (223) - Leuven, - JUL 12, 2012
Details: 50cl can.
Tasting notes: Pours a clear golden color with a tiny white head that fades away and leaves a headless beer. Aroma is sweet but almost not apparent. The flavor consists mainly of a slight sweetness, maybe some malts but in the end an alcoholic metal finish that ends dry but leaves some sticky sweetness in your mouth. Medium body, too few carbonisation in my opinion.
Conclusion: Quite a dissapointment. From al the ’Gorden Finest’ beers I’ve had this one has the least flavor but the most alcohol. This makes me conclude that this beer is interesting if you want to get drunk easily, however considering the high price there are better alternatives.

kerenmk (2300) - 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 (1296) - 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 (7364) - 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 (477) - 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.

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...

Buongiorgio00 (757) - - MAY 31, 2014
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.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein hell bernsteinfarbenes Bier mit ordentlicher Schaumkrone. Geruch sehr malzig süß, leicht alkoholisch. Geschmack süß malzig, getreidig, leicht alkoholisch.

Poured medium amber with a small off white ring. Aroma of honey sweetness and light malt. Medium to full body, flavour is much as the aroma,
