Good god, this hit you like a heavy ball right in the bottom of your belly. It gets you drunk alright. Whew.

I thought that this beer was even worse than some mass produced american beers like budIt’s great to pound and to get drunk off of but othert han that it is worthless.

Can from The Wine Company, Slough. Poured in a glass. Typical lager look, lager and alcohol aroma. Horribly raw, syrupy and metalic. The alcohol is there, but in an extremely crude way. If you set out to get drunk this would be a better idea than plain lager due to the increased strength, but Carlsberg Special Brew is a better option all around for that.

It appears i am one of the few who enjoyed this beer. It smelled alright to me and it tasted like one of the couple of beers that I had that were aged in the bottle like 5 or 7 years, except much better.

Actually pours with a decent head. Even ice cold this has a pungent alcoholic smell. Tastes repulsive, a real struggle to get it down and keep it from coming back up.

Not really sure about this one. I got chewed out by a couple British friends I met at a bar for trying this. Told me it was for tramps. Whatever. Not a very good taste at all. Very strong. Wouldn't recommend to many.

leaparsons (8070) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2004
Bronze with a loose head of white foam. Aromas are sweet then...nothing. This tastes of sweet water and is quite syrupy in the mouth. The alcohol is hidden somewhere - I can't really sense it. Ah, that "Old purple tin".

Color and head looked natural. Palate was very sweet and intense. Almost undrinkable.

fiulijn (14547) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 29, 2003
Golden color. Malt and bread aroma. Sweet, oily, alcoholic. Strong final bitterness. A bit too cloying.
