This is stuff for the AA dudes. Sugary shit it is. The Grolsch lager beers are fine but this just stuff for the problem drinkers. That’s probably why it is sold as Maximator in Russia. Come on, everyone can make boozy pulp beer with mountains of sugar!

Poured light amber with a frothy white head. Aroma of sweet grainy malt. Full body, flavour is sickly chemical sweetness.

Out of a can. A goldy blonde colour. Just a rank smell of paint thinner. Taste is just as bad.

I’m very surprised by the fact that so many people don’t favor this beer. One of Grolsch’ best special beers. The taste and the aroma are great and also the appearance is beyond good. I respect everyone’s opinion but the rating 12 for this one is way too low, that looks at least a little bit suspicious.

Pours a large creamy white head that mostly diminishes. Body is clear amber, sparkles are visible. Aroma contains heavy malts (molasses, grain) and some hops (citrus fruits) together with alcohol. Flavor is massive sweetnes and some bitter in the end. Body is thin and watery. Carbonation is soft. I used to like this, but that was before I knew better.

30 cl bottle medium carbonation. Syruppy mouth feel. Amber color small broken head. Aroma - Alcohol, Alcohol and ... Some cameralized sugars Taste sweet alcoholic like liquor Body above medium, syrupi texture, long sugary (and alcoholic) finish very unbalanced a one trick pony relying heavy on the alcohol taste;

Purchased this from a supermarket in Landsmeer .Consumed this at Camping Het Rieven, Landsmeer, Amsterdam, Netherlands, Monday 30th September 2013 A big malty beer from Grolsch. Gold in colour with middling sparkling, heavy and more than a little syrupy in mouth. I bet this is the sort of beer that gets a massive slagging on ratebeer, however I have to say I really don’t mind it, also I am amazed at the abv, it drinks much easier than it should. Its a very one dimensional beer, malty, sweet and strong. A6 A4 T6 P3 Ov12 3.1
