Svesse (7850) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - SEP 11, 2011
(Bottle, Pivovarsky Klub, Prague, 27 July 2011) Amber colour with frothy, white head. Malty, fruity nose with dried fruit, orange peel and spicy hops. Malty, fruity taste with notes of orange peel, tropical fruit, caramel and a slightly spicy bitterness in a warming finish with a certain sweetness and some warming alcohol. More than medium body, fairly sweet. Actually quite well balanced for its strength. Nice.

Aromat/Aroma: Zbożowy, alkoholowy przypominający nalewkę ziołową. Nutka owocowa. / Grains, alcoholic like herb liqueur. Fruity notes.
Wygląd/Appearance: Klarowne, bursztynowe. Puszysta obfita, ale krótka. / Clear, amber colour. Flufy vivid head. Not lasting.

Odczucie/Palate: Pełne, lepkie, wysokie wysycenie. / Full body, sticky, high carbonation.
Ogólnie/Overall: Wrażenie musującego miodu z nalewką ziołową. Nieco szorstkie, ale zaskakująco przyjemne jak na taką moc. Pasuje mi: "Triple Pils". / Sensation of fizzy honey with homemade herb liqueur. A bit sharp, but surprisingly pleasant for its strength. I would say "Triple Pils".

JorisPPattyn (9471) - Ursel, 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.

Sammy (11176) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 12, 2006
Thanks Radek. Works out from 21% gravity to a very strong ABV, not available in old Communist days. Lots of barley, and some wheat. Yellow, soapy head. Pale malts and other malts. Bold taste, tongue burn from alcohol and sugar and Saaz hops. A must try lager.

inbirraveritas (1505) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 2, 2011
Bottle from Különleges Sörök Boltja, Bp. Clear amber pour with lively carbonation and a medium white head on its top which laces. Sweetish, fruity nose and aroma escorted by burnt sugar, alcohol and some grassy hops, mouthfeel’s syrupy. The warming finish is also rather sweet with alcohol, citrusses and spices. Overall rather a one-dimensional brew, but in spite of that really enjoyable and full bodied with a nicely hidden alcohol content.
