Definitely filtered. Very smooth body, crisp taste, sweet flavor immediately, cotton candy, very mild hop bitterness, good carbonation. Alcohol is present for sure. Would be a nice warm weather beer as it is refreshing, but not watered down.

Bought a can on Langkawi, Malaysia. 'Exotic' lager, little bit to exotisch and strong for my taste...

MacBoost (1353) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - NOV 7, 2014
11.2oz bottle. Pours a clear gold with a small white head. Aromas of grape candy. Taste is sweet. Flavors of grape drank, cotton candy. Corn. Finish is sweet and syrupy. Pretty bad.

superspak (2775) - Michigan, USA - OCT 29, 2014
330 ml bottle into lager glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy/cloudy bright orange/copper color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big lemon, orange peel, pear, apple, honey, bread, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Mediocre aromas with notes of big fruity/earthy yeast and moderate pale malt sweetness; with poor balance. Way too much fruitiness in the nose. Taste of lemon, orange peel, pear, apple, honey, bread, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. No bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, orange peel, pear, apple, honey, bread, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Very mediocre flavor profile with poor balance of pale malt sweetness and some significant fruity yeast ester flavors; with some moderate cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a moderately creamy and fairly slick mouthfeel that is a bit rough. Alcohol is well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is a really poor strong lager style. Just all around unbalanced and overly fruity in flavor; and pretty difficult to drink with the odd/rough mouthfeel. This tasted really similar to apple cider with all the fruitiness. It was not a drain pour, but it was close.

Bork (318) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - OCT 10, 2014
Undrinkable strong beer with a cloying port-like sweetness from the start and into the aftertaste. Strong alcoholic presence. Abhorrent. Based on the other reviews on here I wonder if the one I got was bad. It wasn’t just bad. It was completely impossible to gulp down.

Bottle - Pours a clear yellow with fairly large, creamy head. Sweet biscuity aroma. Taste starts ok then goes to chemical astringent. Shame.

"not nearly up to par with the stout, but i wasn’t expecting it to be. pleasant semi-sweet fruity aroma. taste is similar, with light grassy hops. full bodied, especially given the fizzy cloudy yellow look. fruit and a bit of alcohol in the finish."

12 oz. can I think I grabbed this at Dutch’s (from notes). Pours a very pale yellow color with a medium sized quickly fading fizzy white head. The aroma and flavor have pilsner and pale malts, some sweetness, straw, grainy notes, apple. Light bodied, boring, general pale lager/pils.

Bottle. Cream. herbal lemon, and barley malt aroma. Golden yellow with small head. Sweet lemon, milky caramel malt and mildly bitter herbal and alcohol flavor. Not bad.
