3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is the beer I find most emblematic of the given style. Copper-orange color, can’t sustain head. Mostly clear, yet dense looking. Sweet malt nose with big alcohol chops. Hint of vanilla. Taste is exactly what is expected - very sweet yet biting. Thick feel, long bitter finish. Burns the esophagus. A rare beer where the high proof itself carries the day. Much enjoyed.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light ambergold, small off white head. Malty alcohol, caramel with a light body. Decent, but not good enough to tempt me to buy it again.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500 ml bottle pours a clear amber color with a light head and a little lacing. The aroma is the most memorable part of this beer: caramel malt and definite alcohol. Taste is sweet with noticeable carbonation. Pleasant for the price, and lots classier than a malt liquor.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
11/29/11. 500mL bottle. Clear amber pour under a very small khaki head that fades to a ring and barely laces at all. Sweet caramel aroma with plenty of fusel alcohol. Sweet caramel flavor as well with bread and more fusels... methinks this is basically a malt liquor but even thicker. Blegh.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a nice bright copper color with a medium-sized off white head that leaves a little bit of lacing. Aromas of grain, malt and alcohol. Flavors of some fruit, caramel and toffee with a slightly harsh alcoholic finish. Light to medium bodied with a nice crisp finish. Overall this was okay.......not bad for the price I guess.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Great floral aroma, sweet light malts, saaz hops. Eh flavor falters, dense pils malts, this would’ve been much better with lighter malt bill. Pilsner finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear light amber with a small white head. Aroma is malt, prunes and alcohol. Taste is sweet malt, dried fruit and alcohol with light hops to balance. Slightly sticky. One of the better euro strong lagers, because the malt profile veers toward doppelbockish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle in a shaker. Pours deep golden with a thick, lacy, off-white head. Aroma of bread, light hops, and a little alcohol. Flavor about the same. Average, sort of silky texture. A decent beer, but nothing special.
