Pretty decent alcohol delivery system. Nothing much to look at. Sweet smell. Little alcohol burn, sweet corn water flavor. Toss a few of these back and you’re all set to rock-n-roll!

Drink it just to get drunk in a easy way. Really bad taste. Also you will have a bad hangover next day.

The_Osprey (2380) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2015
500ml can, from an off licence. Golden orange, clear, slightly sparkling, huge foamy white head, full lacing. Aroma is musty fireplace, plug hole. Body is medium, high carbonation, pretty foamy in the mouth. Taste is alcoholic, dry, soft bready malts, no bitterness. OK, a bit harsh and boozy. Above average for the (generally poor) style.

marcnow (33) - Pszczyna, POLAND - JAN 11, 2015
Butelka 0,33, Piwo koloru bursztynowego, piana gorzka, o małych bombelkach, średnio wolno schodzi, zostawiając ślady na szklance. Piwo czuć wódką (w końcu to 9% lager) Nie jest mocno gazowane, bardzo goryczkowe i trochę nie przyjemne w ustach mimo iż finisz zostawia małą goryczkę i jest krótki to na języku mam takie nieprzyjemne odczucia. Nie kupie drugim razem. Nie tylko drogie to jeszcze nic za ceną nie idzie. Piję piwo ale sądzę że jak coś powiem to czuć mnie wódą.

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.

La cosiddetta birra degli ubriaconi... Una strong lager da 9 gradi che di strong ha solo la gradazione, povera di profumi e sapori, scarso equilibrio. ---Rated BY Italianbeer85

Bottle. A popular drop in Italy. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is sweet, bread and malt, artificial fruit. Flavour is sweet malt, a bit syrupy, alcohol is very evident. Drinkable but why?

Alengrin (2722) - BELGIUM - SEP 6, 2014
Popular strong lager, peach blonde coloured and on sale in 50 cl cans in many supermarkets also in the Low Countries; metallic, sweetish but fortunately not too cloying, one-dimensional with strong alcohol presence as usual in this style. I have to admit I had many examples that were much worse, though.

Lele (185) - Padova, ITALY - AUG 30, 2014
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.

SarkyNorthener (2538) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2014
Can from local offie. Golden amber beer with large frothy head. Aroma is malty and some orchard fruits. Taste is malts, herbal, some caramel and a bit of alcohol harshness in the finish. A little oil on the palate. Not bad really.
