MoritzF (9156) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - JUL 20, 2005
(bottle) Clear golden colour with a medium foamy yellow head. Sweet malty aroma with biscuits and a hint of ripe citrus fruits. The alcohol dominates this brew from the beginning to the end. Sweet, slightly toastmalty taste with an almost sticky alcoholic sweet finish. I´m not a pacifist but this one contains too much gunpowder for my kind of taste.

Very powerfull beer, the alcohol is overwelming. I believe I fell asleep after the second one (0.5L bottles)....It has a golden color, nice white head, tastes like alcohol, a bit sweet almost rhum...The beer is called The Canon, and a canon it is. You have to try it once, it is very powefull, but once is enough..

BANG!! Not normally a lager drinker (which makes living in NL tough) but this is a goody. Forget the 11,6% thing, this is a decent tasting beer. I like the darker lager colour. Is the ABV over the top? Mibbies aye mibbies naw, but if you look at the label before buying then you know what you’re letting yourself in for. Local supermarket selling it on a Sale for 1,45 Euro for 2 bottles!! :)

Hunsell (403) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - FEB 7, 2005
Typical pilsenerstyle appearance, but the aroma gives away that it isn’t. Malty and alcoholic. So is the taste. Almost cloyingly sweet and very alcoholic. Metallic aftertaste. Heavy, heavy, heavy.

scotty (1131) - SCOTLAND - JAN 5, 2005
Lacking in aroma, malt just noticable. Lovely deep gold in colour but head almost nonexistent. Flavour of ..ALCOHOL..and a hint of malt on the finish. Quite disappointing really!

The kanon means it is supposed to pack some power right? Well, it does as the ABV of this is way over the top. This looks like your typical lager/pils but the nose is a first give-away that it is going to be a big beer. The taste backs it up with an overboard hit of alcohol and cloying malt/hop profile. OTT ATW.

Ungstrup (33459) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 7, 2004
A dark yellow beer with a fine white head. The aroma is dominated by alcohol, but also malt is present. The flavor is extremely strong and sweet with lots of alcohol and notes of peaches. Not my type of beer, but for the style I think this is a good interpretation.

It is too strong for me, Much alcohol taste. Later I taste more. I had a bottle from 1998.
