"Strong Lager"

Following the acquisistion of the Tennents brands from AB InBev by C & C Group, this beer was immediately licensed back, so effectively remains an AB InBev brand.
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.

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 (25069) - 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

Koelschtrinker (14073) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 6, 2011
Süßer und alkoholischer Geruch. Die Alkoholnote ist deutlich herauszuschmecken, allerdings ist sie angenehm süßlich unterlegt. Das wars allerdings auch schon, das klebrige Getränk weißt sonst keinerlei Aromen auf. Zumindest ein herbes Aroma hätte hier ins Bier gehört, um die Süße etwas zu tilgen. So ist es auf jeden Fall zu süß, dazu außerdem langweilig. Test vom 15.12.2006, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 11,7,6,3,8,7 - 6,70

Kosmokrator (630) - ITALY - JUN 17, 2012
Color oro intenso con classica fragile schiuma bianca. Aroma debole, lievemente maltoso e moderatamente alcolico. Gusto dolciastro con lievi note di malto e cereali, forte sapore di alcool che copre quasi ogni cosa; finale sgraziato, leggermente amarognolo ma troppo alcolico. Effervescente e corposa, al palato non è malissimo ma lascia la bocca (e lo stomaco) sottosopra.
