50 cL can. Pours clear orange to amber with a collapsing light brown head. Light spiced to herbal aroma, mild malt note and light alcohol note in addition. Flavour is light spiced towards perfumed and sweet. Light fruity too. Ends light alcohol warming spiced.

Ungstrup (29802) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 13, 2005
A deep red beer with a huge light brown head. The aroma is extremely sweet with notes of alcohol, berries, and citrus. The flavor is also very sweet with strong notes of alcohol, which gives it hints of metal - too sweet and alcoholic for my liking. The flavor also contains notes of berries and wood, and it has a dry end.

A dark amber beer with a fine light brown head. The aroma is of sweet caramalt. The flavor is awful - too sweet with notes of caramel and the alcohol burning the mouth. Yuk - I don’t like this.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 15, 2006
(Can 50 cl) Clear and very dark amber golden with a small, off-white head. Odd, perfumy nose. Medium body with sweet, malty accents and - again - perfume. Very alcoholic finish. Odd, but not that bad. 130806
Earlier Rating: 1/24/2006 Total Score: 2.9
(Bottle 33 cl) Beautiful, reddish amber colour with a delicate, creamy, beige head that leaveas a pretty curtain of laces. Aroma of malt and alcohol. Full-bodied with a very sugary sweetness. Some slightly perfumy, fruity notes are hiding in the flavour making this a rather unusual strong lager. Rather discreet bitterness. 240106

oh6gdx (20902) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 8, 2007
Bottled. Deep amber colour, mediumsized beige head. Aroma is fruits, alcohol and some malty and quite hoppy hints too. Flavour is the same. I would have guesses the style for a fruitish Malt Likka, but apparently it’s an ale...

omhper (19932) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 27, 2008
Canned. Clear dark amber. Ethanol aroma. Sweet and syrupy, metallic and garsh. There are som ne substance, like notes of grassy hops, but it’s dominated by an alcoholic burn.
Earlier Rating: 10/21/2002 Total Score: 2.4
Sampled draught at Thembi, Maastricht.
Brownish amber with creamy rich head. Huge on caramel in the nose. Very sweet. Malty start but vanishes into a sugary, syrupy finish. Feels one-dimensional and industrial.

fiulijn (15217) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 1, 2003
[8.8 % ABV] Red-amber color, creamy head. Aroma of cheap Strong Lager. And definitively tastes like any Strong Lager, just with some maltiness and sweetnees above the average; alcoholic. Poor palate.
Earlier Rating: 1/21/2003 Total Score: 2.7
Amber color; beautiful head. Sweetish strong beer, alcohol touch, light fruity palate (candy).

harrisoni (14104) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2006
On tap at The Highlander, Antwerp. Red beer with lasting beige creamy head. Creamy sweet red fruit malt aroma. Bit too much sweet sugar candy. Finish has some dry malt, but too sweet and overall a bit daft.
