BlackHaddock (4367) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 22, 2014
50cl can: BBD 19th Mar 2015. Shared with my son in the sun on 21st Sep 2014 at home in the garden. Pours golden, clear, clean and bright: on top a white head. Aroma of sweet grains with a metallic and alcohol presence. The flavour follows along in the same lines. It grew on me actually and although this is not my sort of thing normally I thought it not bad at all.

jmgreenuk (5225) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - AUG 12, 2014
Can from a Kuala Lumpur avond winkel. Poured a clear light amber with a frothy white head and some broken lace. The aroma is fruity malt alcohol. The flavour is strong bitter sweet with a rich sweet metallic malt alcohol bomb palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Very sweet and very alcoholic. I can’t believe there is a market for this stuff outside of park benches and under bridges.

kermis (5944) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 12, 2014
Can shared big thanks to Jmgreenuk. Pours golden with an off white head. Aroma of grain, metal and alcohol. Flavour is fairly heavy sweet and light bitter. Light bodied with moderate carbonation. Brown paper bag trash.

50cl CAN at partial S&G tasting. APPEARANCE: clear blond beer, small stable white head. NOSE: grains, alcohol. TASTE: alcohol, grains, just bad. And this is 12,2%?? Beer for homeless people...

BOSSbrewer (2137) - Arkansas, USA - JUN 3, 2014
Picked up a can in Madaba, Jordan. Pours golden yellow with two fingers of white foamy head. Aroma is white wine. Smells tart. Flavor is sweet. Strong alcohol. Cornish and grainy. Some bitterness. Way too much alcohol to be enjoyable. Some burn. Not the worst of the strong pales available in Jordan. But close.

Quite strong full of alcohol, glute, sugar and malt. I would like to dring this beer on Greenland next time!. C@H

Bierkrug (2132) - - OCT 6, 2012
500 ml can in Amman, Jordan. Pours a gold color with a very small head. Aroma is cardboard, glue, alcohol and malt. Taste much the same but with chemicals in it. Palate has lots of alcohol and glue. Not good except for getting drunk.

Oakes (13000) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 27, 2009
Golden with no head. Hardly any bubbles. Big alcohol and nail polish aroma. These tastes carry through with some sort of autolysis/toasty burnt wire and all kinds of alcohol.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - OCT 23, 2009
Tall can 12.2%. Pours medium gold color. Head has some cap retention. Aroma is initially sweet corn. Then grain alcohol. Decent carbonation level but very sticky in the palate. Has some malt flavor in here somewhere but is harsh, horrid hobo beer. Nothing but grain alcohol. Super harsh, but I get used to it.
