Bottle. Had in Italy under the label Ceres Strong Ale. Strong corn/metallic nose. Surprising lacing that stuck on the glass like glue. There is some alcohol burn to this, but not as much as you’d expect for an ABV this high. A hearty quaff that sticks to your ribs.

Birra meno che discreta, della quale sarebbe un complimento dire che "si fa bere", abbastanza alcolica e maltosa. Dimenticabilissima, e volentieri.

0,5l can. Ceres Dortmunder Dansk Luxus Øl 7,7%. White head, golden brown colour. Metallic smell with a hint of cheese. Sweet flavour, little hops and malt. Anonymous and,despite the high alcohol level, mild... Reminds me of a stale beer... not very pleasant.

Bottle. Suprisingly decent, bought in Italy, pretty hoppy and dry, small head, long palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

djoeye (1230) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 6, 2014
Off white tall deutschhhh head. Clear golden light body. Aroma; fruits, berries, sweet malts, alcohol. Taste; some bitter, dust, rubber, malts, flatbread, spices. Smooth on palate. Finish warmth, bread, malts, spices, lingering. Overall not bad, but a moderated and better wrapped alcohol could be an improvement. [Ceres Dortmunder 50cl can, abv7.7%, B@Kvickly Middelfart, T@Fjelsted Skov Fyn DK]

UPDATED: JUN 29, 2014 Bottle at Bar Il Gigante, Monterosso. Clear golden body with a thin white head. Low carbonation. Nice lacing. Aroma of metal, corn and a hint of salt. Flavour of alcohol, crusty bread and a lemony tang. Thin body with a watery texture. Average fizz. It does a decent job of disguising the 7.7% ABV but it’s not a beer I would order again.

massingasetta (172) - München, GERMANY - JUN 19, 2014
Dieses Bier was denkungsgleich mit Ceres Royal Selection ist habe ich als "Ceres Strong Ale Export" in Italien probiert. Das Bier vom Geruch und Farbe ein appetitlicher Genuss. Strong Ales haben etwas von Kamin- und Pub Stimmung. Dunkel Goldene Farbe und eine süssliches Aroma. Habe nicht viel Vergleichsmöglichkeiten. Etwas zu alkoholisch schmeckend für mein Gusto, vor allem im Abgang.

Bottle. Clear golden colour with a white head. Malty bit grainy aroma with some hops. Nice sweet malty flavour with a pleasant light hoppy touch. Refreshing for a 7.7% Lager.
