Hammy78 (871) - Dundas, Ontario, - DEC 31, 2012
Bottle given by a friend. Reminds me of a cask beer like Innis and Gunn. Copper pour with a white head and lots of pearly layers of lace. Smells like carmalized malts. Tastes with a bit of bitter bite. Not bad.

tillmac62 (425) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - JUL 13, 2015
Pours a clear copper hued gold. Normal head volume, poor retention and lacing. Light lager style nose with a touch of cherry, apple and grape over a very mild biscuit. Alcohol is evident. Light medium body with a nice somewhat creamy texture. Below normal carbonation with very little effervescence in the finish. The flavor profile is good, but is too focused on the alcohol. The complexity of the nose has to struggle to be noted in the middle. Also in the middle, a solid biscuit sweetness arrives to attempt balance, but falls short due to alcohol. Underneath, this is a quite tasty lager that could approach outstanding if the alcohol were reduced to manageable levels. Not bad by any means, but as it is, just good. If you like alcohol forward brews, this one just might be in your wheelhouse.

Pours a cloudy, dark golden. Appears thick and syrup-like (much like honey). The flavor has a syrup-like quality. The alcohol is very forward. Has a slight bitter finish.

Every so often, perhaps once in a generation, a beer like this comes around. I remember when Kennedy strolled into the White House in his motorcade like a prince returning to Camelot--that, THAT is this beer rolling into my mouth all sudsy, hopeful, and doomed.

SlimHabib (307) - Redondo Beach, California, USA - FEB 12, 2015
Bottle pour. Hazy golden with a large frothy off white head. Aroma is corn and sweet honey. Medium body. Sweet corn, light honey, and a sweet aftertaste. For the alcohol content, you can’t really taste the alcohol.

ohpooratlas (52) - USA - FEB 12, 2015
Bottle Poured golden color with significant white frothy head. Malty hay-like aroma. Is smooth on the palate, begins sweet with a slightly bitter kick at the end.

maxwelldeux (4164) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - DEC 20, 2014
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy dark amber color with a smallish off white head on there. Nose has a lot of corn in there and smells a bit of stale grains. Taste is old and not fresh and really tastes quite bad. Not good.

bpreo (2073) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - NOV 24, 2014
Lithuanian beer. It was very strong, in flavor and character. I guess it would have to be.

Beerdedone (2964) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 30, 2014
Bottle. Pours a pale golden color with a frothy white head. Aroma of corn, grains and honey. Flavor was sweet with pale malts, honey, caramel, sweet grains and grass. Meh

AAEA (216) - California, USA - JUL 31, 2014
16.9 FL OZ ($4.25) this is a heavy beer. Taste is like a triple strength flavor of a lager and only a little bit of the High ABV seeps through.

blipp (6988) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 15, 2014
Bottle. Time to ride the lobster. Golden orange, with a white head. Big and sweet and boozy, with weird spicy hops, light bitterness, grains, and bread. Not awful, I guess.
