2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Taking one for the team here. Not very carbonated but does a nice golden hue to it. Sweetness hides the alcohol content, but the not the metallic after taste (from a can). This beer is cheap alcohol delivery system. Sweetness lingers on the palate, which for me a bit sickly.

Amber colour, thin, rugged head that didn’t last. Aromas of not terribly much more than malt. Sweet and evident alcohol. Not terribly likeable and the rest is going down the sink.

Strong beer, slightly sweet. Good size can. Taste gets a bit much after the 2nd or 3rd can

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
500ml can. Birthday gift. Weird... would have put it in the drain pour category the other night. First impressions from having it a few nights ago - smells cheap & tastes really gross. Had it again tonight and was pleasantly surprised that it had some reasonably nice fruity and a bit of malty aromas, a bit of whisky aroma. Tasted better tonight but mostly very sweet - cloyingly so - may have tasted alright as I paired it with a nice Tikka Masala curry. Fuller bodied than I expected, sticky chewy syrupy texture, lacking in carbonation, didn’t detect bitterness; sweet from start to finish. I’m very grateful that it was a gift rather than me buying a four pack.

Can.Yuck! Sickly molasses syrup. Fortunately I was just having a taste and didn’t have to drink the whole thing.

Supercan (which incidentally looks nothing like the photo here). Corn syrup malt sweetness, harsh alcohol, copper-penny metallic note in the finish. Why does stuff like this always come in a supercan?

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Cheap corn and grain with a sickly syrupy look. Just jumps around all over the place flavour wise, but still with a nasty initial sharpness. The alcohol is disguised in the dire grainy malty taste. Awful.

OMG! What did I dig up? Is this my lowest rating ever? Might not be totally fair in hindsight but I promise to rerate if I find it again :)
Freaky sweet aroma. Taste best not described. Trust me.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Can 50 cl) Clear, deep golden with a dense, off-white head. Aroma of malt and fruit. Medium-bodied with sweet malts and some brewing syrup and some surprising and pleasant fruit notes. The finish is sweet almost lacking bitterness but with a distinct alcohol. A very drinkable European Strong. 130208
