This is overpowering. Offers nothing really but alcohol content. The flavors are artificial to a certain degree. It lacks depth and complexity

Holmen1 (4816) - Stavanger, NORWAY - FEB 18, 2016
Boks på tilbud (kr. 10) hos Bulgarsk Mad i Rantzausgade. Søtlig preg av overmodne frukter. Utseendet er upåklagelig, men smaken blir fort ufrisk. Svak ettersmak av sukkertøy. OK når man skal svelge kveldens kolesterolsenkende tablett.

Sample from 50 cl can. Clear, golden color with a thin, white head. Sweet aroma with alcohol, marzipan a brutal bitterness. Taste is light sweet. Medium body. Finishes dry and bitter with grasses and alcohol. Ok for a malt liquor.

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - AUG 15, 2012
Bottle. Aroma is heavy cereal grains and lager yeasts. Hazy medium orange amber hue with medium white head that mostly diminished and left ok lace. Flavor is heavy sweet and medium bitter. Palate is full bodied and oily soft with a noticeable alcohol presence on the finish. Overall a big beer in all the wrong places. Too much macro lager and not enough fresh ingredients.

reebtogi (5686) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 2, 2012
500ml can pours a pale amber color with a 2 finger white head that settles quickly leaving no lacing behind. Aromas are cheap corny malts and light hops. Taste is sickly sweet with alcohol and very little hop bitterness. Medium body with modest carbonation. About what I was expecting which is pretty much a cheap malt liquor.

brokensail (16055) - Dublin, California, USA - AUG 11, 2011
A: The beer pours a clear light amber color with a finger of white head. S: Smells of apple cider and prunes with a fair amount of booze. There is a bit of peppermint aroma, strangely. It’s cloyingly sweet and sugary. T: Same sort of characteristics on the palate. Very sweet, quite sugary, and lots of prunes/prune juice. There is a pretty heavy dose of booze. A touch of malt to it, though. M: Sort of syrupy for a malt liquor/strong lager. Medium carbonation. O: The fine country of Lithuania has some work to do on this one.
