Had this one in Jordan on holiday, poured from a can. Quickly drainpoured it after a few sips. Golden colored. Very alcoholic, Malty sweetness, bad cheap ingredients. Lotís of carbonation. Smells rotten. True to itís style, but awful.

Deep golden to copper color, white head. Sweet nose, pear, malty. Sweet fruity taste, light malty, hint of alcohol. Medium body, medium carbonation, oily texture. Better than expected.

I sipped a few of these on the beach at the Red Sea so the experience and surroundings made this beer all the better. In general though...what a crap brew. Pours a pale urine yellow with a sickly looking soapy head that dies instantly. Nose and flavour of light, cereal grains and mild pinch of hop that adds nothing. Overall, a cold thirst quencher but not much else.

Tasting at Bruceís pad. Clear gold beer with a small white head. Smooth palate. Fairly sweet malts. Whisper of citrus. Mild minerals. Finishes smooth and dry. Pretty inoffensive with no big off notes. Hides the abv well. Really not bad!

Scopey (12007) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2013
Can from Kenneth. It pours hazy gold with a small white head. The nose is sweet, doughy, icing sugar, candy and sweet apple. The taste is quite sweet, icing sugar, corn, cereal, apple and pear. Medium body and fine carbonation. Straight-forward, smooth and sweet. Quite clean actually. For a malt likka this is top notch!

Can at Bruceís. Cheers Ken. It looks like a lager should. Doesnít smell like much but I wouldnít say thatís a bad thing. Taste is like a clean easy going malt liquor. Not bad by any stretch at all. More malt liquors should be like this awesome big silver can bad boy

Leighton (18075) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2013
Can at Bruceís in London - massive thanks to Ken for sourcing this beast. Pours clear gold with a fine, foamy white head. Rich sugary bread in the aroma. Medium sweet flavor with dry bread, some corn, cereal. Medium bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Sweet finish, slight metallic notes, bread, cereal. Pretty well balanced for a malt likka. Not at all cloying, not boozy. This is what a malt liquor should be.

stoutchap (422) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 17, 2013
Pale golden pour with a fizzy quick dissipating head. Malty but metallic nose. Sweetness and alcohol on the tongue. This beer has no subtlety. Itís not as bad as everyone else says .... itís not great by any stretch of the imagination, but itís not totally offensive. Not being an expert on malt liquors - maybe itís ok according to style.

Horrible Jordanian macro lager. Needs to be drunk by anyone in Jordan. But it ill not be enjoyed. No malt. Corn. Alcohol. Yuck.

Overall impression: My girlfriend wonderedÖ.aint that a muslim country. It is not allowed with alcohol there? Well I do not know. I am not religious. Absolutely a decent Malt Liquor. Mild and very easy drinkalble. Far better than the ones I have tasted from my neighbour country Sweden.
