1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: FEB 17, 2015 From Gene’s. I seemed doomed to keep doing stuff like this. For some reason I grabbed a can of this. It really wasn’t to my liking. Grainy stale smell and taste overly sweet. Hides the alcohol pretty well. Serving: Can

Not bad--good example of the style (high alcohol burn and thin-ish but still aggressive malt), though with a somewhat lower abv. Not necessarily "cheap" tasting at all though

500ml can, BB July 2015, 7.6%. Quite the whale with only 70 ratings. Clear orange / yellow depending on light, a few bubbles, a few cms of foamy white head, sparse lacing. Aroma is light - air, shortbread. Body is medium, quite foamy, low-ish carbonation. Taste is light bready malt, some caramel, alcohol coming through - but not much, no bitterness. I’m drinking this with a cold, but it seems pretty well-rounded for the style. Actually very drinkable.

Thanks to erzengel!! Pours clear yellow/gold with an off-white head. The smell is grain, rich fruit, some alcohol notes. The taste is caramel, fruit, grain ending dry and with fruit and alcohol. The body is light/medium with average carbonation.

Many thanks to kevnic123 for this 500ml can. Grainy sweetish nose. The beer starts sweetish malty, round and smooth. Easy to drink with a malty-sweetish body with nearly no bitterness. Round and fresh. Malty-sweetish on the tongue. Nice.

Bottle. Malty but rather well atenuated, with a watery texture. No alcohol in the nose, though alcohol is present in the astringent finish. Could be worse but if anyone takes this as a recommendation he should sober up.

Can. Golden with an initial large foam. Aromas are grain and toffee with herbal and spicy notes. Earthy apple with brown sugar. Flavours are sweet grain and brown sugar with light lemon. Quite clean and peppery with warming and not overly aggressive alcohol. Surprisingly decent.

500ml can from a Gorgie mini-market. Pours clear gold, no head. Not much aroma, just light sweet if anything. Taste has a light herbal note, but pretty cloying. Not great.

500 ml, butelka. Aromaty słodowe, w smaku podobne. Bardzo wyraźne. Bez konkretnych wad. Dobre piwo o większym ekstrakcie.
