2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 12/20
This beer is a staple of the tramp diet and I am a regular drinker of this tipple.
I first tried this in the hope that it would taste a bit better than Special Brew. How wrong I was. This 9.0% beer has the signature paint stripper smell and taste bud-killing palate to match. However, with most other high strength beers, it can become bearable with frequent drinking.
It smells like a mixture of cheese, gasoline with a little bit of actual beer in there, the can it comes in is unmistakable with SUPER written all over it to make sure nobody overlooks the trampy-ness of this beer.
It can be seen in the hands of the homeless everywhere and is gaining a strong rep amongst the students out there today, partially thanks to all the street corner shops selling it for Ł1:20 a pop.
Nethertheless, this beer is a definite must try for all, once you can get over the cardboard like taste and the hammering hangover, this head spinning potion is a sure fire way to drunk-dome and will soon be one of your favourite super beers.

Non ha senso di esistere, non ha sapore né odore, abituato a birre di forte gradazione non ci sento neanche più l'alcol.
Buona per chi non ama le birre e vuol prendere una bella sbronza...

Bottiglia. Direi quasi imbevibile. Sembra finta. No anzi č finta. Oscena. Non capisco perché venga prodotta.

Very bad strong beer. Lot of alcohol, no taste, no nose, no palate. A beer useful to get drunk.

Drink it just to get drunk in a easy way. Really bad taste. Also you will have a bad hangover next day.

500ml can, from an off licence. Golden orange, clear, slightly sparkling, huge foamy white head, full lacing. Aroma is musty fireplace, plug hole. Body is medium, high carbonation, pretty foamy in the mouth. Taste is alcoholic, dry, soft bready malts, no bitterness. OK, a bit harsh and boozy. Above average for the (generally poor) style.

Butelka 0,33, Piwo koloru bursztynowego, piana gorzka, o małych bombelkach, średnio wolno schodzi, zostawiając ślady na szklance.
Piwo czuć wódką (w końcu to 9% lager)
Nie jest mocno gazowane, bardzo goryczkowe i trochę nie przyjemne w ustach mimo iż finisz zostawia małą goryczkę i jest krótki to na języku mam takie nieprzyjemne odczucia.
Nie kupie drugim razem. Nie tylko drogie to jeszcze nic za ceną nie idzie.
Piję piwo ale sądzę że jak coś powiem to czuć mnie wódą.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Stumbled across this in Sicily, as it seems many others have, as this beer is apparently quite popular in Italian bars. Seems to be a popular high ABV brew, cost-efficient I suppose if you're looking for a buzz on the cheap. While not terrible, "Imperial pils" is too generous a title, more of a malt liquor. By malt liquor standards, it's decent, pours an average golden pale color, smells of grainy malt. Medium bodied with lots of carbonation. The taste is grainy, surprisingly some earthy and fruity hoppiness, also an alcoholic boozy tang. Finish is sour and rough, the high ABV is very evident throughout. Still enjoyable in a way, if you don't approach it with high expectations you won't be disappointed.

La cosiddetta birra degli ubriaconi... Una strong lager da 9 gradi che di strong ha solo la gradazione, povera di profumi e sapori, scarso equilibrio.
