Pours out of the can in a clear dark golden colour with low head and medium-smooth body. Nose of sweet hops and straw. Taste of dull hops, apples, straw and sweet malt. Hints of brown sugar. Not that nice to drink, rather way below average.

I mean, you could ask yourself the whole day why this one is called "Super" ? Maybe it is just super strong with super lots of strange caramell background and alcohol as an aroma ? Probably yes. Just another super simple high alcoholized piwo like a Faxe "Super" strong.

Can at Jacob Lövenlunds place. Golden colour with a Big fast dissapering white head. Light alcoholic malty aroma and a sweet caramel malty alcoholic taste. Medium body and a sweet alcoholic finish.

Borresteijn (6042) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 3, 2010
50cl Can at my girlfriend’s grandparents’ house. I was quite shocked they offered this when I asked for a beer. Deep golden colour, bubbley white head. Aroma of fruity esters, alcohol, sweet, caramel. Flavour is sweet, light malty, fruity, alcohol, light bitter alcoholic finish. Light to medium bodied. Not bad, no real nasty flavours. Not good as well.

50cl can. Pours pale gold with a billowing cream coloured head; the aroma has grain, stewed vegetables and alcohol; the flavours not to bad with sour grains and a syrupy texture; and the alcohol isn’t too apparent on the warming finish.

BlackHaddock (5637) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2014
Draught in some random bar, Rome, December 2013. Needed a 9% ABV blast after drink sour craft beers all afternoon elsewhere in Rome: this did the trick. This is just a hangover in waiting really: however I’ll be fair with my scores and words. Looked good, clear, bright and clean: a true golden brew with a full if thin white head. Grainy nose and taste, the alcohol barely hidden within the weak flavour. This is the sort of beer that gives Scotland and Tennent’s a bad name.

Beer5000 (5636) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 17, 2013
330 ml bottle sampled in 2008. Clear golden body with a medium sized white head. Aroma is weak malt, grain and somehow fruity. Flavor is sweet, harsh bitter, sharp alcoholic. Thin body and a bit sour in aftertaste. Too alcoholic and unbalanced.

Theres a reason i walk through glasgow and see even junky scumbag with a can of this, cause its just alcoholic water that is ment only for the scum of the earth. The fact it comes in cans is a good thing though, as it means they can chase u down the street with a bottle.
