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 £1:20 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.

Thick creamy white head. Clear golden pour. Nasty chemical aftertaste. Dreadful

Bottiglia. Il gusto al naso finisce sull’orzo. L’intensità olfattiva è normale e la persistenza olfattiva è sufficiente. Il cappello di schiuma resiste poco, con bollicine medie e carbonazione media. La consistenza del liquido è limpida. Le bollicine sono fini. La carbonazione è media e persistente. Il colore è giallo dorato. Il corpo è medio. L’amaro è medio. L’intensità gustativa è normale e la persistenza gustativa è sufficiente. Il gusto è piacevole. Le sensazioni boccali finali sono di facile beva. Il finale è dissetante e semplice. L’aroma in bocca riporta sentori di pane e cereali. Alcol presente non invadente.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Brewed in UK, 8%. BB Aug 16. Poured a crystal clear mid-amber colour with a one-finger off-white dense foam head that retained OK and laced poorly. Carbonation low and coarse. Aroma very subtly of grainy malt. Taste is very strong grainy malt then becomes quite sweet/sugary with some alcohol. Light body. Clean, smooth and sweet with a slight but off-putting alcohol ’burn’ on the finish. Suggests serving ’ice cold’ - to mask the alcohol level.

440ml can from Scotmid. 8%. Pours clear golden with a thin white head. Aromas of sugar, malt, cooked vegetables, something metallic. Taste is sweet. Nothing much else going on. Builds to a pretty rank climax though. Something suggesting poor drainage or immense gastric distress. And after all that, still not as bad as I was expecting!

Bottle @ some light deli along the river in Pisa, Italy. Clear amber, white head that drops to a full cover, a few lace dots. Taste is light brisk malt and carbonation that smoothly adds European hops, then moves to a finish where an otherwise light brew suddenly ads noticeable alcohol. Reasonable, but one is enough.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Dark golden, dense white head, decently persistent. Aroma has light notes of cereal and lemon soaked in heavy alcohol. Taste has a vague sweetness, a lot of alcohol and a quite harsh chemical finish/aftertaste. Body is heavy with light carbonation, mouthfeel is dense and chewy. It’s bad, but still tolerable
