5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Pours a muted golden color with a good sized whitish head that dissipated quickly. Aroma is actually quite nice...lots of sweet malt, corn, some faint hops, and a splash of citrus and honey mixed in for good measure. Flavor is sweet with some dark fruit accents in at the beginning, Alcohol is VERY prevalent from start to finish..., and definitely has a warming sensation on the after-palate. Too carbonated as well...very bubbly and hard to drink quickly. Finish is very tinny and somewhat unpleasant. Oh well, wasn’t expecting a miracle out of this one, so I’m not depressed. I can say I grabbed life by the claws tonight!

Immediately after tasting this brew I know the style. It is a Slavic style high ABV brew with not especially much going on. That is one side. On the other side I appreciate the high ABV and size because I know it will be more satisfying as a beer. On the whole, I give it a good rating, due to its good value, especially as a cheaper beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a two finger off-white head that fades slowly leaving some lace. Crystal clear, amber color. Malty nose. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Flavor is sweet malty, caramel finish. The high ABV is hidden. Decent strong lager, big improvement over their 5% version. $4.50 for a 500ml bottle from Tullys Beer & Wine Wells, Me.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Lobster Lovers Beer has a thick, foamy, yellowish-white head, lots of thick lacing, an enormous amount of bubbles, and a hazy, orange-gold appearance. The aroma is very strong and bracing- one gets super-sweet, alcohilic barley malt and candi sugar. Taste is of sickly-sweet barley malt, melted hard candy, alcohol, barley malt, and bread. Mouthfeel is heavy, and Lobster Lovers Beer finishes sweet, harsh, and minimally drinkable. But, even with all the harshness and the jarring experience, it is a good one, and I score it excellent.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
16.9 oz bottle. Pours golden with 1.5 cm white, mostly diminishing head. Aroma is sweet, mostly apple, a little yeasty. Initial flavor is sweet, balanced citrus and apple. Flavor ends on slight yeasty and apple notes and the alcohol catches up at this point. The aftertaste is dominated by the alcohol content. A thinner body, moderate carbonation, alcohol is noticeable as it warms. The flavor of cherry cola only comes out for the aftertaste once the beer warms. Stronger alcohol aroma when the beer warms. Drinkable beer and a nice change of pace from other beers I generally take home.

I was a little shy of this one, but it was really a nice smooth drinkable beer. Not too heavy, with a distinct aftertaste. At only 2 bucks for a 500mL, this is definately a good buy.

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.
