Can - bought in a Jumbo supermarket in Palmero, BA. Pours a brassy hue with relatively thick head. Nose has honey and some dough in the background. Flavor, doing my best to be objective, is a mix of hop extract flavors and butterscotch - but actually rather good butterscotch, nicely sweet...at first. The finish has an unpleasant amount of residual sugar - like a homebrew that didn’t fully ferment. So yeah - an abrupt sweet finish. I can only imagine what Amsterdam club life became after this surfaced - lots of sloppiness.

The_Osprey (3485) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2015
500ml can BB June 2016, 8.5% from an offie. Brewed in Breda. Hazy orange, lightly sparkling, small foamy white head doesn’t endure, dotted lacing. Aroma is honey, copper pipe, some prune. Smells decent enough. Body is medium, tingly carbonation, only slightly foamy. Taste is light, some alcohol showing up, drying with quite a lot of cardboard, finishes metallic. Not much to get excited about, just intended to get people pissed.

brnandersen (2599) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 28, 2014
50 cl. can, shared. Clear, golden colour with a copper tint. Thin, white head. Sweet aroma with brewing mash, marzipan, cooked vegetables and a very unpleasent alcohol dense note. Taste is sweet. And bad. Medium body with a creamy to oily texture and an average carbonation. Finishes sweet with plastic, vegetables and an unpleasent burn from alcohol. A beer for the alcoholic on the bench. Everyone poured this one in the sink. My worst beer for 2014!

mzaar (2077) - Varberg, SWEDEN - NOV 7, 2014
Burk från supermarket (oklart vilken) i Amsterdam. Guldfärgad med litet skum. Dofter av malt, röda bär och framför allt vingummi. Smakinslag av vingummi, röda äpplen och majs. Alkoholen känns förvånansvärt lite. Mjuk munkänsla. Helt okey för att vara en så alkoholstark lager.
