500 ml can. Pours gold with light head. Initial aroma of sulphur and outhouse, settling down to urine and cereal. Flavors of rubber and apple juice. Never again.

.5l can in the town of Panyagor, South Sudan. This is what many of the locals are drinking. Crazy strong lager, gasoline in a can. Pale funk, sour greasy body. Sweet skunk. Ew. Saw cases of this heading north on the dirt road though, it is extremely popular.

Bottle: Crisp lager with sweet malty notes, high ABV well hidden. Drinkable and dangerous. Food Pairing: Salad with blue cheese.

Patrickctenchi (5949) - Coxís Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - AUG 27, 2012
Pours clear, smoky gold with a frothy, off-white head. Scent is grainy and metallic. Taste is sweet malt...grains... Actually a fairly decent beer, nothing astounding, but fairly good and simple. Nice taste. Not too malt liquor-y.

Oh, my...if this is someoneís idea of a good malt liquor, weíre all in big trouble. Tastes like good old industrial corn pilsner, with a sour/bitter finish and a little carbonation. It actually looks promising on the pour: bright clear copper with a long-lasting head and little dots of lace. The taste falls way short. One of the weakest I have ever sampled - and to think its at 7%abv. Wow!

Weird beer. Smells like apple juice and grains. Tastes like sweet butter and apple. Slightly bitter finish. Thin and bubbly. I found this beer off-putting.

northropfrye (3214) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 15, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 20, 2016 Wet grain aroma. Clear amber yellow colour with white head, a bit of lacing. Tastes vaguely of ginger ale, a bit of booze, sweet grains. Better than some pale lagers. Re-rate, 2016 at Bisita in Winnipeg. Has a sweet yeasty grainy element that brings some flavour to this beer. A bit darker reddish body than post lagers. Listed at 8%. Better than my previous experience with this beverage.

Cassio (8) - Augsburg, GERMANY - AUG 7, 2012 does not count
It comes with a very pale yellow colour and a tiny head. Fading away in a blick of an eye. Itís kind of malty and exceptional sweet. Itís for sure not brewed after the "Reinheitsgebot" or any international norm else. Moderat malty. Be careful, the you canít taste the alcohol level in it. If you donít know itís like a malt beer.

Bottle. Pours clear pale yellow with a small white head and some lacing. Aroma is grain, honey, urine, hay. Flavor is medium sweet with grain, corn syrup, and some spice (anise?). Aftertaste is metallic, anise, and unpleasant.

27.06.2012. 0,33l Can. Thanks to Trond T for bringing me this beer back from the Philippines! Pale golden colour with white head. Weak malty aroma with notes of alcohol. Grainy flavours of corn. Very light and easy drinkable. Short aftertaste.
