Bottle. Clear reddish amber with off-white head. Aroma - caramel, sweet apples, apricots and candies. Taste - sweet, fruity, caramel, candy, quite clean but alcoholic and slightly medicinal. Light-med bodied, syrupy texture. Drinkable.

Fashawn (587) - ITALY - OCT 2, 2014
Buona birra, rossa carica e con un cappello di schiuma enorme. Bell’odore di frutti rossi e alchool, oltre che di caramello. Lo stesso in bocca, con una buona persistenza del finale. Secco, asciutto e lievemente citrico. Buona birra.

Moolesen (479) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 14, 2014
Bottle 33cl. Brown/red with a small white head. Almost no aroma, but hints of british malt, weak though. Considering the beer is rather high in alc/vol I expected a rich and powerful taste, but was quite disappointed. Very little taste and not very present. Short finish

De geur is echt niet goed maar de smaak valt heel goed mee. Een aanrader om eens te proberen

AndrewC (356) - Canterbury, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2014
Umm. Smells slightly of home brew. Nice soft mouth feel. Taste of Smirnoff Red. Bit basic but actually reasonably drinkable for a silly strength beer.

Alengrin (4603) - BELGIUM - AUG 19, 2014
Also tasted as Gordon Halloween. Malt liquor-like interpretation of the Vienna lager style, with off-white, thin and unstable foam and pure copper colour, cristal clear. Doughy sweetish aroma, dry cookies, lots of anything but subtle liquorice, candied cherries, apple peel. Very caramelly taste, sweet with resinous mouthfeel, sugary, smooth and slick, thin finish with gin-like, almost astringent alcohol and insufficient hops. Awful and artificial like the rest of its range, but I guess the alcoholics at which it is aimed, could care less about that.

Fin (9680) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2014
Can, consumed at Nic and Anna’s leaving party, Merton, Oxon, Saturday 12th July 2014 Drinking this straight from the can at about 2-3am when if truth be told I didn’t need anymore, so no idea on colour. Sweet malty with a fair bit of toffee and caramel. The can gives it a very industrial look which fits rather well. A6 A3 T5 P3 Ov10 2.7

50cl can. Thick white head. Clear amber pour. Slight bitterness. Not bad but not great either
