JaKeAFC (451) - - JUN 9, 2013
33 cl bottle, 9%. Nice copper-red color with a creamy offwhite head. Sourish on the nose. Aroma is malty, biscuits, some caramel, liquor, brandy. Metallic spirit bitterness in the back of the throat. Taste is sweetish with violent bitter finish. Body is medium. Warming, burning. Finish is short and alcoholic. Boozy stuff.

Lejos (8) - - JUL 11, 2012 does not count
Bottiglia. Aspetto decisamente bruttino: schiuma praticamente inesistente, scomparsa del tutto in un minuto ed un bel colore rosso quasi rame. Al naso note di caramello e alcol. Sapore che rispecchia praticamente l’olfatto: una dolcezza zuccherina spropositata, molto alcol, leggero caramello, zero luppolo. Meglio della Super, ma sicuramente una birra da evitare.

Wolfbass (863) - Firenze, ITALY - MAR 28, 2012
Bevuta alla spina in pub di paese, l’unica cosa decente e l’aspetto con questo color rosso bellino, ma tutto il resto...
