1.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Pours deep, clear golden with substantial white head. Aroma is honey and malt sweet, floral, and ever so slightly citrus. Very sweet flavor. Begins with something akin to honey and malt and progresses to something I would compare to stevia, cinnamon, and other holiday spices. Even finishes sweet. Texture is light but abrasive. Masks alcohol well, but would not recommend more than tasting this beer.

Bottle ... Crystal clear golden pour. No activity whatsoever. Really sweet corny aroma. Similarly corn-starchy character in the drink. Smooth, but relatively unimpressive. If "Eastern European" is a beer flavor, this is it. (#3793, 1/10/2010)

Some definite alcohol aroma. These beers are starting to look and smell the same. This is an okay beer, definitely not a doppelbock. More like another strong pale lager with a slighter darker color. The label is the best thing about this beer.

Bottle. That i was planing to make this my night cap at 9.5% but i just can’t. Pours a honey toned body with a thin white head. Aroma is abrasive, pinesol, paint, dingy malt body, corny, malt liquor like. Heavy corn syrup, with sweet and bitter tones. Rice, adjunct, corn, makes me make a bitter beer face. God this is horrid. Appleish honey husky hay corn. Just bad, i could finish it but God why the hell would i! I’m gonna drain pour the rest of the beer.

This is one of the worst beers I’ve ever had. Tastes like pure alcohol, rubbing alcohol. It got one extra point for high alcohol content.

Wow. Dreadful beer. Sugary and brutal. but does have some Bock undertones. Artificially sweet orange sugar, faint yeasty butter. Horrid stuff.

1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Another nasty beer from Rinky. I swear that they only make two kinds of beers; a high alky and a 5% and only change the labels. I’ve had many of these rinky’s and they all taste the same; just plain RUDE. One of my beer brewing buddies has confirmed they only make two beers and several labels. All the labels are interesting to look at fer sure. Now, on to this beer wannah be. Slightly cloudy pale yellow. Smell is just plain old rude high gravity lager that has been aged in a can tho this came from a bottle. Taste almost encourages the gag reflex, how nasty. Sickening sweet cloying yuck of a beer. All that near gag reflex thing happening makes me forget all about any possible carbonation. Later. This is an insult to infer this is a holiday beer. What a mess, typical cheap baltic beer.

Gold pour. White head. Malty sweet aroma with some corn and maybe some artificial fruit. Flavor is stupid sweet and tastes like someone poured equal into someones sweaty pits and then bottled it. Gross ass beer.
