#617 Das Jupiler Tauro kommt zu mir in einer schönen Relief-Flasche mit einem Stier als Motiv, der dem Lamborghini Emblem ähnelt. Im Glas ist es goldgelb mit reichlich Schaum, der auch etwas länger bleibt. Der Geruch ist malzig mit Hopfen im Hintergrund; typisch für ein Jupiler. Der Antrunk ist wiederum malzig und ziemlich knackig nach Alkohol geraten. Da ist Jupiler definitiv übers Ziel hinausgeschossen, 8,3% sind schlichtweg zuviel des Guten. Der Hopfen im Abgang federt den Alk. etwas ab, aber weniger wäre hier mehr gewesen. Erstaunlich gut trinkbar ist der Tauro-Stier trotzalledem! Test vom 17.11.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 10,9,9,9,12,9 - 9,25

In 2008, the bankers of AB InBev apparently decided it was time for an alcoholics’ beer and launched this strong lager version of the already reprehensible Jupiler. The result: yellowish white, creamy, fairly thick and suspiciously stable head, pale yellow blonde colour with fierce sparkling. Aroma of sweet pale malts, corn, white bread, lemon, something sour and chemical, sweat, gin, iron and wet straw. Neutral onset with strong carbonation, turning a light malt and corn sweetness, bit mineral-like, thin and one-dimensional, smooth mouthfeel, grassy hops in the finish along with the expected alcohol burn, though admittedly less wry than in many other strong lagers. I regret to admit this but for its style, this was not even that bad, but we all know the style as a whole is infamous for bad quality only alcoholics don’t give a damn about. Has been replaced by a weaker version in 2012.

Vooral een goed bier voor iemand zat te krijgen, maar qua smaak overstijgt hij het gemiddelde pils-niveau niet

Clear deep yellow appearance with medium head. Malty aroma with alcohol notes. Overall decent and refreshing strong pale lager.

Swaroga (1317) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 6, 2013
This is a little late review of that retired beer. I was a bit surprised I haven’t rated it before. As I remember well this was a very boring taste of pale malts reminding a bread flavor with a delicate floral hop aroma. The finish was short and leaving an acidic aftertaste that was just awful. The beer was quite easy to drink despite high alcohol and I’m sure that was what they ware aiming at. Booze. But in a country of Belgium a boozy lager is a really bad idea since people here, if they need boozy beer they will reach for an ale and not for a lager. Further on they made a 7% version of it and it was, well, the same. Maybe a bit more fresh and easy to drink. Comparing to other industrial strong lagers, Jupiler must have an edge of quality but they should export it then. Belgium is not a great market for strong lagers.

It was pretty nice to drink another beer from ’Jupille’. But I think this beer illustrates the big problem Inbev. They think they can introduce a new beer and making it popular, just with marketing and big campagnes.. But for it’s price in the supermarket, no thanks. Taste is okay, but not really worth it’s price.

Dark golden, a lot of carbonation, white foam. Very bad beer, Like a lager with lots of alcohol. Very unbalanced, sweet and malty.

This must have been one of the last remaining in date bottles about: found and drank on 19th Oct 2012 in ’t Puur Genot, Diest. Looked like a normal pilsner/lager: bright, clean and clear, golden with a thin white head on top. Pils with steriods is the smell and taste: not too pleasant, I bet people on park benches used to use brown paper bags when downing this: just so their mates thought they were drinking ’Special Brew’ and not Tauro! Unfair to call it odourless and tasteless maybe but grain soaked in alcohol with a hop pellet lying close by doesn’t do it justice either! take your pick. The brewery deciding to drop this and produce a new 6.2% ABV version has got to be good for the unwary and alcoholics who used to purchase this surely?
