Muggus69 (1108) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - NOV 8, 2009
Draught Firenze, Italia Didnít actually occur to me this was a different beer to the standard lager when I purchased a 3 euro pint of it at some random side by during happy hour. I especially didnít notice how strong it was until I finished it! Anyway, suprisingly drinkable for it strength. Malty, quite clean, alcohol is subtle at low temps.

Ober (2806) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - NOV 20, 2009
A clear golden clred beer, with a thick foamy white head. The aroma of fruits like citrus with some hop bitters. The taste is dry, bitters with fruits. The aftertaste is moving over from sweet to some bitter. It stays for a long time.

Kita (860) - Koper, SLOVENIA - SEP 7, 2013
Bottled, 0.50l. Clear deep golden color with small frothy white head and average visible carbonation. Aroma of moderate biscuity malt, some caramel, light hops and strong alcohol. Taste starts with heavy malty and fruity sweetness, followed by strong alcohol note and finished moderate bitter. Medium body, syrupy texture ajd average carbonation in palate. Good to get drunk with it, but without many positive features...

Bottle, 33cl. Pours clear golden, with frothy white head. Sweet hops on the nose, with the alcohol evident. Sweetness and alcohol on the palate too, but some yeasty fruit there too. Not as bad as anticipated, though not great.
