2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear gold body with a thin white head that leaves a bit of lacing. Sweet aroma...caramel and just a touch of smoke. Medium mouthfeel, nothing too exciting. The flavor is okay. Sweet...corn and caramel. Really no smoke. Just a minor bite at the end. Meh.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy golden amber with a short white head. Aroma of caramel, malts and bread. Flavor was malty with caramel, bread, grains, grass and had a hint of toffee.

thinner beer, but still overly sweet and not very complex. don’t care for either, but might take this one over the stronger version in a pinch.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Formou um belo creme denso, levemente acastanhado que se manteve como uma fina camada após algum tempo.
Líquido ambar translúcido e efervescente. Bonito.
Aroma se destacou a distância. Malte e caramelo bem caracterizados. Doce.
Uma cerveja densa no sabor. Muito forte a caramelização, mas apesar disso, com bom amargor posterior. Novamente a carbonatação e o alcool aparecem bastante.
O retrogosto é amargo em boa medida e bastante seco.

Amber colored beer with a clear whites head. Tastes like a nice bread crust with a pleasant sweetness. It leaves a bad aftertaste and it has a watery feeling

No smell, color is dark yellow, not appealing in color. Tastes very simple, now tastes of whiskey, bread, wheat. No aftertaste.

Bottle: Aroma with malt, grain, caramel, grassy hops. Clear amber color, white head. Flavor is malty, light notes of cookies, honey. Pretty boring. Light bitterness in the end.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
330 ml bottle bought at Fürstenberg in Tsuen Wan.
Clear amber honey colour; One-quarter finger head with soapy white foam which fades in 20 seconds; Small sticky lacing with very fizzy carbonation; Aroma of amber malt, with potent whiskey, light smoke, molasses, caramel, musty, light bread and faint grass; Mid to light sweet taste of amber malt, with light smoke, thin liquor, caramel, molasses notes, light earth, dry bread, faint lemon and shades of grassy hops; Close to light body, dry and thin palate; Mouth feel is pretty full amber malt in a rather light body, with strong dry caramel licks like a ESB. Light sweet, some initial liquor and smoky tastes that faded quickly. Quite bready all the way. As empty as typical Amber lager can be. Sigh… Hoppiness is faint grass nose, very thin lemon and grassy taste; Bitterness in very low-fi for a very thin and abrupt grassy astringent finish; Dry after taste, quite easy and bready to mouth.
Comments: This one used to be at abv 7.3%? I wish it should been kept that way because without stronger booze - whiskey-like or not - this is just another average Amber Lager. Throw in a bit of smoky peated malt aroma and faint taste isn’t enough to make it decent. The musty nose is quite annoying. Better than most macro Amber Lagers, but that’s not good enough. Meh!

Pretty terrible really, not sure why they bothered to make it. The one good thing about it i guess is it looks clear.

bottle, thanks baerwaldt - must admit i didn’t realise at the time that there was a newer version of this. alas, it resembles the old one - amber, cheap whisky aroma, rough sweaty malt with raw sweetness
