2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 12/20
This beer is a staple of the tramp diet and I am a regular drinker of this tipple.
I first tried this in the hope that it would taste a bit better than Special Brew. How wrong I was. This 9.0% beer has the signature paint stripper smell and taste bud-killing palate to match. However, with most other high strength beers, it can become bearable with frequent drinking.
It smells like a mixture of cheese, gasoline with a little bit of actual beer in there, the can it comes in is unmistakable with SUPER written all over it to make sure nobody overlooks the trampy-ness of this beer.
It can be seen in the hands of the homeless everywhere and is gaining a strong rep amongst the students out there today, partially thanks to all the street corner shops selling it for £1:20 a pop.
Nethertheless, this beer is a definite must try for all, once you can get over the cardboard like taste and the hammering hangover, this head spinning potion is a sure fire way to drunk-dome and will soon be one of your favourite super beers.

Can. Golden with a very small head. Has a deep and heavy lager aroma, but expected at this strength, as is the heavy taste.
