DraftDodger (1041) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 25, 2016
Copenhagen 25/7 2016. 50 cl can from Aldi in Portugal. Black can with a very big "8.0" in red to reassure boozers that they get some ABV for their money. Pours clear yellow with white head. Settles as thin layer of foam. Aroma is sweet and slightly chemical. Reminds me of detergent. Some metallic alcohol and a sour edge as well. Medium carbonation and slightly thick palate. Flavor is heavily sweet followed by sharp sourness. Metallic alcohol in the aftertaste. Fairly unpleasant Strong Beer.

labeerinthum (511) - Milano, ITALY - NOV 1, 2015
Bottiglia. L’intensità olfattiva è normale e la persistenza olfattiva è sufficiente. Al naso si ricordano orzo e mais. La schiuma è di bollicine medie. La frizzantezza è scarsa. Il colore è giallo dorato carico. L’amaro è deciso. Il corpo è strutturato. Il dolce è medio e soccombe all’amaro carico. L’intensità gustativa è normale e la persistenza gustativa è sufficiente. Le sensazioni boccali finali sono di facile beva. Il finale è secco, pulito e dissetante. L’alcol è presente, poco invadente.

50 cl can bought at Aldi. Golden colour with small head. Taste is sweet with malt and a lot of alcohol.Drinking this one isn’t quite a pleasant experience

Calisky (2472) - ALSACE, FRANCE - NOV 6, 2014
couleur dorée, mousse qui disparait. Nez de vieille pommes, notes acides. Gout de mauvais caramel, vieux fruits, aspartame, quand même assez doux, m’attendais a pire.

jaghana (5447) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - JAN 1, 2014
Can 50cl, a copper beer. Very fruity on apple and candied oranges, lot of malt as for a doppelbock, very sweet with alcohol touch. Even better than expected.

GoufCustom (1572) - HONG KONG - NOV 26, 2013

500 ml can bought at the 759 Store in Sheung Shui Centre.

Golden yellow honey colour; One quarter finger head with soapy white foam which fades in 20 seconds; Small sticky lacing with slight soft carbonation; Very strong sweet smell of malt, with corn syrup, grains, fruity nectar, light bread, light lemon and light grass; Fairly strong sweet taste of light malt, with alcohol, caustic soda, syrup, grains, light lemon, faint liquorices and light grass; Medium body, quite oily and thick palate; Mouth feel is fatty malt likka, all corn syrup, booze and some fusel. It’s strong, quite caustic and furious to the tongue but strangely, it’s not offensive really. Malt is thin, sweetness and booze are subdued, and with some pleasant, nectar like fruity taste similar to the smell. No other off tastes. Not bad; Hoppiness is light lemon and thin grass in nose and taste, plus thin liquorices for a notable low bitter finish; Fairly dry after taste, thick and boozy to mouth.

Comments: This is one of the better-tasting Malt Likka / Euro Strong Pale from Saint Omer. Cheap as it is, it still has better quality to please drinkers of all spectrum. You get all the bangs for the bucks. Recommendable as a good cheap fix!
