mkel07 (4921) - 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.

Marko (4759) - 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.

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.

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.
