Bottle from a Roma mini mart. Pours amber gold with a frothy white head. Mildly fruity aroma. Full bodied. Flavor is caramel/toffee with a bit of fruity hop. Somewhat sweet. Heat is noticeable. Actually tolerable.

I am surprised that this beer is rated so low. As I sampled it, I would call it an imperial pilsner. I am surprised it is not listed as a European Strong Lager because I found it to be very similar to the Czech Republic's Extra Boom. Aroma of cheap malts. Golden body with a decent head. Hoppy upfront with a big malt finish that mostly covers up the alcohol. I found this to be an enjoyable brew.

schuimkroaat (413) - Leuven, BELGIUM - APR 29, 2005
50 cl can, poured into a glass, bbe Aug 05. Light amber/orange, good foamy head, hazy, strong pearling. A rather weak flowery and perfumy odour, reminiscent of a detersive. Malty and fruity (apricots), round in the mouth, tickles the palate.

Lunkie (1399) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - FEB 25, 2006
Sweet bitter malt aroma. Crystal clear amber colour with good head and lacing. Malt spicy flavour with sour aftertaste. Fizzy palate.

Kronebryg (1039) - Sorgenfri, DENMARK - AUG 16, 2011
Some head, deep golden. Light sugary nose. Medium heavy body. Some length. Has a disturbing dry note in the sugary taste. Unballanced, but will get you drunk quickly if thats what you want

Can. This jet fuel poured orange. Smells like creamed corn. Boozy malts. Drinks better than some in the "tramp beer enthusiasts" list of favorites. It’s got the honey like tobacco hops going on. Caramel malts.. Some Apple some chewy grassy hop. Look it’s almost like a cheap Belgian. Ok!

Bottle & Draft. Pours rather clear orange honey-brown with basically no head. Aroma is fairly weak, but contains notes of citrus, barley, and yeast. Full bodied with a boozy, warm mouthfeel. Drank this a few times in Italy due to high ABV since brews were few an far between (and pricey). Probably rated a bit higher due to sentiment, but still should be rated much higher overall. Decent strong lager.

Borresteijn (4572) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 3, 2010
50cl Can at my girlfriend’s grandparents’ house. I was quite shocked they offered this when I asked for a beer. Deep golden colour, bubbley white head. Aroma of fruity esters, alcohol, sweet, caramel. Flavour is sweet, light malty, fruity, alcohol, light bitter alcoholic finish. Light to medium bodied. Not bad, no real nasty flavours. Not good as well.

09.05.2013. 0,33l Bottle. Torre Pendente Camping, Pisa, Italy. Golden yellow colour with white head. Malty aroma with rather good body. Strong with lots of alcohol. Medium bitterness and a little out of balance.
