3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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!

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
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?

how to destroy a beer with a lack of taste...
drank this at a bottle ( one of the six some guy forgot at my housewarming party 2 years ago ) from what i remember, it has all the bad tastes of a jupiler, isolated, highlighted. made the mistake to drop one to the floor, so i could very well conclude the ’ aroma’s ’ of these beer are not perticulary good neiter.. i wonder if the new one is better? but i doubt it. in these 2 years, working as a bartender , i actualy found a ( 1 ) person who likes this...
why would it be retired?
inbev, man yourself up and stopp destroying all your beers in all posible ways !

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
An original 8.3% bottle found at Charleroi Airport. I can see why this was discontinued. Pours a dark golden colour with a huge white head. An aroma of grain alcohol and hops. Similar flavours and fairly bitter with heavy carbonation and a foamy mouth-feel. Not too sweet with very prominent alcohol throughout.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Legacy bottle? I still got this at April 2012.
Very lager looking beer, clear orange/yellow with white head. Smell has hops and alcohol. Considering the alc vol taste is surprising mild, but without any doubt there’s plenty of it. Due the alcohol this has certain sweetness, other than that there is not much aromas which makes the beer rather boring.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Quite strong alcohol and that is the only thing that makes this beer outstanding from other pilseners. Good color, good foam, bitter but nothing special, won’t buy again.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
330ml. Been avoiding this since it came out. Pure, streaming gold with a fine cap. Rotting beach mat aroma. Then chalk, slight shrub and honey, Madeira cake. Almond-sodden, bicarbonate of soda, strong lager taste like a hangover. Alcohol bitterness. Way too close to the park bench for my liking. Undrinkable, or at least not worth drinking- probably 300ml went down the sink.

This Belgian blonde is nice and strong but bland as you would expect from a big label. It has a grainy smell but a smooth taste with a quick finish. It poors golden brown with little CO2 and a small head.
