50cl can @ home. Golden color, minimal white head. Aroma slight citrus and caramel in the nose, strong carame flavor with some extra sweetener which feels a bit artifical and a bit like a belgian strong ale. Alcohol is well hidden in the aroma, but I can feel in my stomach. Taste heavy sweetness, nearly not bitterness. Medium body, sticky texture, average carbonation, sweetish finish. Quite like a belgian style, way too sweet, but still I think the best from Grolsch.

Small sample from a 50 cL can at home. Pours clear golden with a small to medium white head. Aroma is a bit grainy with quite some alcohal. Taste is also grainy and quite sweet with some alcohol and a soft bitterness. Medium body and carbo. Horrible.

In fles 33cl. Koper geel van kleur. Matige schuimkop. Zoet van geur en zoet van smaak. Verwachting van dit bier lag hoger.

33cl fles. Goudgele kleur. Witte schuimkraag. Eerste smaakimpressie : zoet, koolzuur, zoet, zoet. Nasmaak: suiker blijft op mijn tong achter!

Strong sweet fruity nose, fruit syrup, candy sugar, bubblegum, bit caramel, orange peel, citrus, herbs; clear amber, good frothy white head, stays a while, good lacing; smooth sweetbitter taste, coffee, roasted; creamy texture, full body, average carbonation; smooth bittersweet finish, alcohol. really don’t understand the bad ratings on this one, very acceptable strong beer from Grolsch.

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.
