2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can in a black plastic bag during the IoW Jolly. It pours clear gold with a thick white head. The nose is bready, sweet, sugary, corn, and mild garbage action. The taste is sweet, doughy, cornbread, syrupy, sugar cane and only mild alcohol with a short, sweetish finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Smooth and hides abv well, yet gets you buzzed quickly. Weirdly enough I sort of like this.

Can from International Store in Eastbourne. One of those tough piwos with some malt, sweetness and high abv in taste and aroma. Tough to drink and to finish but not that awful like some dutch high abv brews.

Can from an international foodstore in Eastbourne. Pours out in a clear deep golden colour with low head and smooth body. Aroma of malt and grains. Taste of light malt, light hops, straw, flowers, caramel and sugar. This is a beer which will cause you a bad headache the next morning - damn! Drinkable but at the end of the day it is awful.

Can from local offie. Golden beer with small head. Aroma of malts, some biscuit and a touch of caramel. Taste is malts, grain, a little herb and alcohol warmth with a touch of dry yeast. I agree with Blackhaddock, Belgian beer characteristics. Ok beer.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 5/20
Aroma: Alcohol with a touch of malt (possibly).Appearance: Golden Bronze, crystal clear, not much head. Taste: Alcohol, sweet, malt, low grade hops. Palate: cosidering the former actually not too bad after the first few sips, lasting bitterness and actual hops, reasonably good!.
Considering that this is just over £1 a can its surprisingly drinkable, although its not very refined it is the best of the "super" lagers. This lager isnt too bad and although it is only rated at 1.7 it is more than the sum of its parts!

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can : Booze, cardboard subtle hop aroma: looks ok in an Orval goblet. Flavours suggest caramel covered in booze. Grainy . Sugary, leading to buttery dry hop tang: not bad in piss fuel context but pretty fucken grimy really.
