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 (6048) - Zaandam, 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.

FabioSound (5) - ITALY - AUG 29, 2006 does not count
questa birra è molto forte ma il gusto non è il massimo, preferisco di piu’ la bottiglia bella fresca che la spina specialmente se non è ben curata ! è ottima per stordirsi il cervello!

Bottle, 9% in Rome. Peppery mash aroma. Clear dark copper colour. OK semi-stable head. Sweet marcipan flavour. Warming/burning alcohol flavour. Late bitterness, a bit rough. Maltier than most strong lagers.

mkel07 (4836) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - FEB 15, 2010
500ml can. Large frothy white headatop a bright gold base. Aroma of grain and hay mixed in with some malt. Smooth and silky in the mouth and you can really taste the strong alcohol content that leaves a warm glow in your throat.
