Mid-fermented beer with full richness and soft distinct bitterness, strong relish and pure hop aroma.

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 30, 2004
An amber beer with a fine off-white head. The aroma is of caramel, yeast, straws, and dust. The flavor is sweet with notes of caramel and straws and the body is strong. Probably the best European Stong Lager I’ve had.

Jeppe (2631) - Řlbutikken, DENMARK - OCT 27, 2004
Clear golden beer with a thin off-white head. Strange aroma of herbs and boiled vegetables. Maybe it is just me but I also find vegetables in the flavor?! Mostly sweet with some hops and citrus in the end. What is wrong with this brewery, I can’t believe how crappy beers they brew.

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - OCT 27, 2004
Hoppy aroma, some metal and malt. Clear golden body, small white head. Fruity flavor, quite nice.

JorisPPattyn (7716) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 11, 2004
Copper-gold, very clear, very carbonated; yellowish tinted head. Sweetish-alcohol nose, very malty, nearly syrup. Taste is pure maltsyrup. This is a good malt liquor; sweet, alcoholic, pâtisserie, caramel. Syrupy MF, full bodied, very slick. Good - but not exciting. Probably excellent in its class - but that is not really difficult.

UPDATED: NOV 7, 2004 (on bottle) I don´t know, maybe I was in a good mood. But this is a prime example of a ESL. Powerfull malted and alcohol nose, really intreaging. Has a wonderfull pale amber color and an small head. A really full mouth, loads of malt, brown nuts and craneberries. Sweetness in perfect balance to the hopping in the finish. And we´re talking a clean Saazerhop here, no amarillo or sweet cascade, clean czhech beer here.

skortila (4347) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - AUG 16, 2004
Aroma is spicy, malty, hoppy and fruity (apples). Clear, golden coloured with a thin head. Malty taste, bit too sweet, fruity (oranges) and spices. Quite full bodied. Sticky brew. Alcohol decently hidden.

MiP (13047) - Sřnderborg, DENMARK - MAY 28, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2008 Bottle.Golden colour with big, creamy, semi-stable white head. Aroma is very malty and pleasant. Flavour is very malty and very sweet. The alcohol does not show itself as clearly as could be expected, but nicely warming. A lot better than most superstrength lagers. 7 3 4 3 16

Bottle, 9%. Good sweetish malt flavour, quite caramelly, and peppery. Very nice, actually. 7 3 7 3 16

Donatas (188) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - DEC 28, 2002
Very strong. And maybe too strong. The dominant taste of this beer is alcohol. It’s kind of strange to find such a strong lager in Czech Republic.

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - OCT 6, 2002
Orange and a little soapy aroma. Dark golden/orange colour, large white rocky head, diminishes fast, fair lace. Very sweet, fruity, thick, orange and apple. Long lasting finish with a little burn and a little alcohol bitterness. But they managed to hide the 9% quite good.
