nearbeer (3675) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 9, 2010
33 cl green bottle, from supermercati in Napoli. Orange-golden with a small ring of bubbles. Aroma of scorched rubber, butterscotch and alcohol. Light-medium body is soft and fizzy, dry with alcohol. Tastes of alcohol, menthol, light citrus grass, rubber and caramel apple.

Finally had it after spending one year in Scotland and never drank it. It was nice, not so strong, quite foamy and refreshing.

BlackHaddock (3631) - 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 Iíll 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 Tennentís a bad name.

rauchbier (3598) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2003
Can. Golden colour, poor head and low condition. Low sweet malt and hop aroma, fairly smooth and clean in the mouth with a hint of alcohol and a bitterness into the finish. Not as foul as I feared.

SHIG (3565) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - SEP 7, 2006
Poured a golden amber with a bubbly white head. Sour nail polish remover smell. Terpentine in a bottle, very hight alcohol burning taste with no other recognizable flavor.

mkel07 (3322) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - FEB 15, 2010
500ml can. Large frothy white headatop a bright gold base. Aroma of grain and hay mixed in with some malt. Smooth and silky in the mouth and you can really taste the strong alcohol content that leaves a warm glow in your throat.

Palme (3302) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 5, 2012
0.33l botttle from a supermarket in Monfalcone. This is a crystal clear dark golden one. Not as much as an unfiltered particle or a hint of blurriness. It also has a big bubbly just off-white head thatís lacing down the glass. It does really not smell that much. Light grainy and malty perhaps with a hint of both caramel and thin hops. Not horrible, just not all that much. It has a thin oily texture and itís average carbonated. Quite boozy at first in the flavor! Then, it calms down after a while and becomes more sweet like. Malty and a hint of caramel also here in the flavor. Not an extreme bitterness, but itís there in the boozy finish and aftertaste. Did not expect much of this, but I have to say I got more than I was expecting. 09.06.2012

500ml can from Spar. Golden amber colour, big foamy head. Sour corn vegetable alcohol aroma. Sweet grassy corn flavour. Alcohol aftertaste. Not as bad as I expected.
