2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 5/20
This is everywhere in italy, thought it was just for the pondlife in uk! Clear orange ale with white head, plenty of lacing. Aroma of sweet rotting fruit, malty with alcohol spice. Taste is same with alcohol burn, not subtle. Palate is good though, a bit oily and with measured carbonation. Not good in general.

Pours a cloudy orange with a decent amount of slowly dissipating head. Heavy grass and alcohol in the nose. Sickly sweet, not masking the alcohol much in the taste. This seems like the ultimate beer you drink just to get drunk.

Bottle, 33cl. Pours clear golden, with frothy white head. Sweet hops on the nose, with the alcohol evident. Sweetness and alcohol on the palate too, but some yeasty fruit there too. Not as bad as anticipated, though not great.

Alcohol not at all hidden here. Good for a warm-up if you’re outside in freezing temperatures. Golden clear brown yellow pour with frothy white head.

Bevuta anche questa prima di una partita,non č esattamente un granchč.Della Tennent’s preferisco al massimo la Stout magari assieme a un bel piatto di spaghetti col sugo di muscoli.E comunque per me la birra scozzese si chiama Traquair e basta.Questa invece non č altro che l’ennesima birra da discount.

Not very good at all, but it is strong and grainy... But what do you expect?

Very popular beer in Italy, but in my opinion it is a beer simply too much sweet. Good only for getting easily drunk.

La cosiddetta birra degli ubriaconi... Una strong lager da 9 gradi che di strong ha solo la gradazione, povera di profumi e sapori, scarso equilibrio.

Stumbled across this in Sicily, as it seems many others have, as this beer is apparently quite popular in Italian bars. Seems to be a popular high ABV brew, cost-efficient I suppose if you're looking for a buzz on the cheap. While not terrible, "Imperial pils" is too generous a title, more of a malt liquor. By malt liquor standards, it's decent, pours an average golden pale color, smells of grainy malt. Medium bodied with lots of carbonation. The taste is grainy, surprisingly some earthy and fruity hoppiness, also an alcoholic boozy tang. Finish is sour and rough, the high ABV is very evident throughout. Still enjoyable in a way, if you don't approach it with high expectations you won't be disappointed.

9% and 3 cans made the shakes go away the morning after an overexuberant tasting session in London. Other than the % it has nothing going for it.
