harrisoni (12651) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2011
500m can from a corner store on way home. That it has come to this. Clear orange cold with thin near white head. Oh this is really not very good. I am having difficulty picking up any beer like flavours at all. The carbonation says it’s a beer, but everything else is raw and pretty awful. Aroma of something acidic and almost bleach like. Then in the mouth, it has what? some lemon flavour? It is awful. Definitely a drain pour.

yngwie (12612) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 1, 2009
Bottle. A clear, almost golden beer with an off-white head. Alcohol, fruit, grains and hops in the aroma, quite raw and unpleasant, but not foul. Pale malts, hay, grass and alcohol in the flavor, lacking bitterness, and rather unpleasant, at least until your palate gets used to it. Warming, medium body. The beer is not off, it is not very good. A typical European strong lager, made for the guys in the park and the youth who wants to get drunk fast. (081031)

Can (BB 01/2010). Golden color, small steady white head. Pear and cardboard in the nose. Strong alcohol, grain and pear. Sticky.

Christian (10778) - Odense, DENMARK - DEC 19, 2009
Golden with a small white head. Aroma of grass, apple peel and alcohol. Cloying sweet alcohol flavour

bhensonb (10345) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 8, 2011
Bottle from a Roma mini mart. Pours amber gold with a frothy white head. Mildly fruity aroma. Full bodied. Flavor is caramel/toffee with a bit of fruity hop. Somewhat sweet. Heat is noticeable. Actually tolerable.

faroeviking (10294) - FAROE ISLANDS - JAN 6, 2007
Can. Golden colour, sweet alcoholic grainy aroma, which appears well in the flavour along with some maltiness. Sweet dryish bit uncomfortable finish. Oh man, those Scots.

HenrikSoegaard (10090) - Randers, DENMARK - JUL 6, 2009
Bottle. Bought in Italy. Creamy white good mostly lasting head. Yellow colour. Light malty and hopy aroma. Breay. Light sweet and biter flavor. Short finish.Very alcoholic. Watery palate. I think this is a malt liquer! Way too alcoholic.

Koelschtrinker (9996) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 6, 2011
Süßer und alkoholischer Geruch. Die Alkoholnote ist deutlich herauszuschmecken, allerdings ist sie angenehm süßlich unterlegt. Das wars allerdings auch schon, das klebrige Getränk weißt sonst keinerlei Aromen auf. Zumindest ein herbes Aroma hätte hier ins Bier gehört, um die Süße etwas zu tilgen. So ist es auf jeden Fall zu süß, dazu außerdem langweilig. Test vom 15.12.2006, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 11,7,6,3,8,7 - 6,70

Maria (9963) - Thisted, DENMARK - FEB 1, 2008
This strong beer has a golden color and a moderate head. The aroma has notes of malt and hops. The flavour is sweetish, malty with notes of caramel and the finish has a light bitterness. The alcohol flavour is too dominant - and it’s a plain and boring beer.

gunnfryd (9903) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 14, 2008
Bottle. Golden colour with a white head. Aroma is alcohol, malt, sugar. Flavour is alcohol, malt, sugar. Too much alcohol in the flavour.
