BlackHaddock (6344) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2016
50cl can at home on 6th Apr 2016, poured into a tall ’Schultheiess’ glass from years ago. Looked fine, bright, clean and clear golden colour with a full and deep snowy white crown. Went down hill from there though: harsh grain feel to the poorly hidden alcohol drenched brew, some nasty metallic flavours pushing through too. Headache inducing ’tramp juice’ really. Had to have another beer after this, just to get rid of the aftertaste.

F: big white, but not good retention. C: a little pale gold, clear. A: malty, grassy hops, hint of white sugar, caramel, straw. T: malt, corn, grassy hops, biscuits sugary, hay, light to medium body, average carbonated, compared to extra strong version much better but still bellow-average, 0,5l can from Match supermarket in Brussels.

Oooops! Belgian but not very intgeresting! Should be in freezer before drinking. But you can survive! C@H

PriorL (3069) - Gent, BELGIUM - FEB 14, 2014
50cl CAN. APPEARANCE: clear blond beer, nice stable white head. NOSE: grains, some alcohol, little fruity. TASTE: grains, some hops, bitter aftertaste, not too bad, but too high in ABV to make this OKé. Pilsener like, but higher in ABV, not better in taste.

Calisky (2492) - ALSACE, FRANCE - SEP 24, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2013 Couleur dorée, belle mousse et bonne carbonation. Par contre aucun arome et gout a peine amer... vraiment bière de base.

jaghana (5495) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - OCT 29, 2010
Can 50cl @ auchan. A clear light amber beer with medium head. Aroma is malty, not too sweet, with correct hops specially at the finish, better than expected specially for the cheap price, the beer remains drinkable and it’s not too alcoholic. So aroma is basic but ok we don’t have the over sugary syrup flavor we have in some other strong lagers.

   AROMA 4/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 3/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 4/20
boto (2102) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - APR 15, 2010
500ml can: Picked this up in an Auchan. This one pours a crystal clear pale yellow color. There was a frothy white head on it that dropped off rather quickly. Aroma? For a 7% beer There was a surprisingly lack of an aroma. Very faint malts, corn and floral hops. At least it wasn’t a bad smell. Lack of flavor for a 7% also. What was there was fairly light in body. Faint alcohol to the taste. The remaining was kind of grainy and harsh. Pretty much a drain pour. The younger folk must like this for the price and ABV.

fonefan (43888) - VestJylland, DENMARK - FEB 26, 2010
Can 500ml.
Clear light to medium yellow color with a small to average, frothy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, white head. Aroma is light to moderate malty, grain, toasted, sweet malt, cardboard notes, light hoppy. Flavor is moderate sweet and light to moderate bitter with a average duration. Body is light to medium, texture is watery to oily, carbonation is soft. [20100111]

DeanF (2348) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 15, 2010
Can poured into a tulip glass. Okay yellow, some small head on top, typical lager look. Smells of alcohol and syrup, slight hint of fruity notes if you really get deep in there. Taste is a harsh syrup that leaves a bitter taste in your mouth. Harsh carbonation. Tough to suck down. Blecch.

KimJohansen (10420) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - JAN 12, 2010
Clear golden with a tiny white head. Sweet malty aroma with hints of caramel. Sweet flavour with malty, breadish and caramel notes. Finished sweet.
