The current brewing location is unknown - unfortunately, AB InBev doesn’t seem to consider it important to provide consumers with full information on all their brands, or their provenance.

Birretta tranquilla e senza troppe pretesa, ma anche abbastanza piacevole. L’aspetto non è dei migliori: colore ambrato chiaro con schiuma disomogenea, un po’ fine e un po’ grossa, nonché scarsa e poco persistente. L’aroma non è particolarmente accentuato, con note maltate e di caramello. Queste note si sentono anche in bocca, ma a lungo andare un po’ stanca. Carbonazione rilevante, retrogusto quasi assente. Birra che non si fa ricordare, ma che rimane sicuramente ad un livello abbastanza alto confrontandola con altre birre industriali.

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 (427) - 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.

Sweet bitter malt aroma. Crystal clear amber colour with good head and lacing. Malt spicy flavour with sour aftertaste. Fizzy palate.

Kronebryg (1124) - 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.
