Had this bad boy alongside Carlsberg Special Brew, both in a can. Both cans suggest "drinking responsibly" on the front, however, the 9% abv is quite prominent on the front of this can! A golden beer with a thick white head that settles down after a few minutes. Aroma is boozy with some caramel and malt notes. Alcohol up front with caramel and a dirty malt taste. Very quick finish. I’m sure it does the job but not for me, thank you! Interesting to try this though. Now on to the Carlsberg...

Bottle at a tasting. Thanks zvikar. Clear golden with a white head. Aroma of sugar, grains and alcohol. Sweetish alcoholic flavor. Light-bodied.

Not very good at all, but it is strong and grainy... But what do you expect?

McTapps (6479) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - AUG 17, 2013
Pours out of the can in a clear dark golden colour with low head and medium-smooth body. Nose of sweet hops and straw. Taste of dull hops, apples, straw and sweet malt. Hints of brown sugar. Not that nice to drink, rather way below average.

Well while others are lambasting it, I have tasted worse, in fact a lot worse. Pours a medium gold clear under a small, short lasting head. Alcohol is actually quite well masked in the aroma when cold, and there is a faint hint of stone fruit and alcohol as it warms. The palate is faintly cheap vinous with a raw alcohol and bitter start moving to sweetish bitter on warming. Finish and aftertaste are like a cross between a really bad strong Belgian and an experimental cheap sweet white wine made by some of my fathers wanna-be wine making mates.
