berkshirejohn (4975) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2012
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.

Beer4000 (4950) - 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.

JohnnyJ (4788) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Bottle. Yellow orange pour with a fizzy white head. Very sweet, heavy boose, rotting fruit, and garbage. Difficult to drink.

dwyerpg (4755) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUN 2, 2004
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.

skortila (4749) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - MAY 7, 2007
Canned. Alcoholic, bit malty, bit hoppy aroma. Clear, copper coloured with a large, off-white, frothy head. Taste is very sweet, very alcoholic, sugary, slightly malty and just a bit hoppy. Sticky and burning mouthfeel. This beer is like a nascar racetrack.

BlackHaddock (4593) - 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.

Marko (4175) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - MAY 30, 2009
0.5l can courtesy of and shared with heavy (thanks!)
Poured a medium to big fluffy white head that went away leaving heaps of lacing on top of a slightly darker golden body. Light but somehow intensive alcohol with some maltiness in the nose. Whooo what fun. Alcohol, warming, some chalky bitterness and sweet maltiness, a bit metallic, and some ok herbal notes hm. Unbalanced and bad but not as cloying as it could’ve been which saves it from being and utter failure and lands it firmly among the regular failures. Fun fun fun.

Bullit (4108) - Burgos, SPAIN - OCT 5, 2008
Golden colour, small lasting white head. Aroma has alcohol, some malts, metallic. Flavour is alcoholic, metallic with some sweet malts. The first half of the can is most difficult to get through, but overall this beer is just horrible.
