500ml can from Spar. Golden amber colour, big foamy head. Sour corn vegetable alcohol aroma. Sweet grassy corn flavour. Alcohol aftertaste. Not as bad as I expected.

mutz (820) - NETHERLANDS - APR 21, 2013
UPDATED: APR 27, 2013 Donkergeel met weinig kraag. Ruikt en smaakt zoetig en verder weinig. Geen diepgang. Niet voor herhaling vatbaar.

Botella de 33 cl en varias ocasiones ya hace años. De hecho mi birra favorita durante la época instituto. Ya desaparecida de los bares y tiendas de España hace tiempo. Donde se puede encontrar de nuevo???. Solo recuerdo su sensación alcohólica sin muchos sabores que destacar. 9 vol. de cerveza sin mas, aunque recuerdo ciertos toques secos y maltosos, unidos a cierta densidad algo dulce. Me encantaría tomarla de nuevo. Creo que el sentimentalismo me puede en esta actual puntuación. Me quedo con etiqueta y botella como recuerdo.

On tap in Italy in a mug. Fruity aroma with a bit af malt. Sweet and refreshing with notes of fruit, but nothing special.

Stumbled across this in Sicily, as it seems many others have, as this beer is apparently quite popular in Italian bars. Seems to be a popular high ABV brew, cost-efficient I suppose if you're looking for a buzz on the cheap. While not terrible, "Imperial pils" is too generous a title, more of a malt liquor. By malt liquor standards, it's decent, pours an average golden pale color, smells of grainy malt. Medium bodied with lots of carbonation. The taste is grainy, surprisingly some earthy and fruity hoppiness, also an alcoholic boozy tang. Finish is sour and rough, the high ABV is very evident throughout. Still enjoyable in a way, if you don't approach it with high expectations you won't be disappointed.

FrkAabenhuus (147) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 25, 2005
Bottled. Deep golden coloured, with a huge dissapering head. It has a very strong malty, alcoholic aroma and a very sweet caramel alcoholic taste, with a slightly bitter-sweet-alcoholic finish. Should be served very cold.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 23, 2006
(Bottle 33 cl) Clear, fully golden with a small, white head. Aroma of malt, brewing syrup and alcohol. Rather full-bodied with a heavy sweetness and distinct notes of corn. Slightly sulphurous finish. Drinkable and better than it’s reputation - although that’s not saying much. 200106

33 cl green bottle, from supermercati in Napoli. Orange-golden with a small ring of bubbles. Aroma of scorched rubber, butterscotch and alcohol. Light-medium body is soft and fizzy, dry with alcohol. Tastes of alcohol, menthol, light citrus grass, rubber and caramel apple.
