0,3l fles amber kleurig, minimaal schuim. Geur minimaal, smaak vol zoet. Dit heeft extreem weinig met bier te maken. Is eigenlijk alleen vergiste suiker. Niet mijn drankje.

Alengrin (1210) - BELGIUM - AUG 19, 2014
Very strong amber-coloured lager, sweet and sugary, grainy, metallic with - despite its potency - thinnish mouthfeel and, needless to say, a very alcoholic finish, wry and astringent. Petrol for alcoholics.

Moolesen (190) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 10, 2014
Bottle 33cl. Dark golden/amber with a white head. Strong malty aroma. Very sweet and malty. The high alcohol is not pleasant in this beer, but I donít understand the rather bad feedback. Ok, itís not my type of beer, but it is well in balance. Slight bitter is present in the finish, but the alcohol is dominant. If you are into barley wine then this would be a beer to try.

gripweed57 (639) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - AUG 7, 2014
300 ml bottle from Super Food in Palm Beach, Aruba. Deep yellow gold color with thin white head. Metallic malt nose. Intense bittersweet malt flavor is all alcohol and bubblegum. Thin body is one-dimensional. Not pleasant. Pour this over ice and close your eyes; youíll think your in a dive bar at happy hour. Not what I expected. Stay away from this one.

Camons (5854) - Hasselager, DENMARK - JUL 26, 2014
Can @ Tulip Inn, Bodegraven, as Grolsch Krachtig Kanon. Pours golden with a fading frotty white head. Aroma of malt, corn, marcipan, white sugar. Flavor is very sweet, some malt, sugar, corn, marcipan, and some alcohol, but not so hot as one might think. Medium to full body, soft carbonation, actually the alcohol is fairly well masked for the ABV behind the sugary notes and makes it kindof drinkable. 260714

TheCametron (1780) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JUL 20, 2014
Bottle. Pours Gold with a thin, bubbly White head. Heavy malty sweetness with a slightly unpleasant afterbite. Not too bad though. I thought it would be a joke but it actually conceals the alcohol better than Iíd have thought. My cheeks are rosy, make no mistake but as far as turbo-lagers go, Iíve had worse.

kevnic2008 (7843) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - JUL 1, 2014
Golden body, white head. Aroma of metal, cardboard, berriies and alcohol. Very sweet.

Taboada (311) - Compostela (Galiza), - JUN 25, 2014
500 mml can tasted on 25/06/2014. Golden colour with a lot of bubbles and a easy dissappear head. Aroma is alcohol and malts. The taste is horrible with a strong presence of alcohol. Not balanced at all. It sucks. I was not able to drink the 500 mml. Next one please.

I have a heard time describing this one. I knew what to expect, but wanted to taste it for myself and although it?s not as bad as expected It?s just not a good beer. It tastes like a Bacardi coke, a bit metallic.. It?s to watery and could use a higher carbonation.

Icedwarf (301) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - JUN 9, 2014
Helder donker geel bier zonder schuim. Smaak is sterk en zoet met sporen van vanille. Weinig echte smaak, alleen sterk. Blijft redelijk lang hangen.

Abijen (1428) - ís-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - JUN 3, 2014
Pours a golden clear beer with a good white head. Smells malts, sweet. Tastes sweet, alcohol, warming. Weird stuff. Average carbo, medium body and a sticky texture. Bleh.
