2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
It has a light yellow hue, with a decent white head. It has a sweet, corn aroma. It has a slightly sweet taste, with a slightly dry finish. It does not taste like it has a lot of alcohol in it, so I was shocked that it was 9%. Overall not a great beer, but plain, strong lager it gets the job done.

Fairly nice, golden brown appearance w/ decent head. Has that traditional Pils smell w/ a hint of funk. Taste like a classic Pils, mixed with malt liquor... certainly nothing to write home about, but it IS smooth. Very smooth for 9%.

3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle, $2. Pours a deep clear gold with no head. The aroma is very muted, but what I do get consists of sweet corn and alcohol. Taste is sweet, almost no bitterness. Flavors of sweet corn, some caramel. Alcohol is barely noticeable. Hops are almost non-existent. Finish is sweet and syrupy. Not that bad, actually. Pretty decent boost.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bote de 500ml. Vaso Lager. Color ámbar brillante y apariencia cristalina. Espuma blanca que forma una tupida pero fugaz corona. Aromas azucarados –azúcar moreno y miel- con algunas notas de diacetilo y manzana. Entrada dulzona y herbal. Cuerpo medio-ligero y carbonatación moderadamente alta. Sensación alcohólica caliente. Final dulce, malteado y reseco. Bastante correcta en comparación con otras Euro Strong Pale Lager.
500ml Can. Lager glass. Bright amber color, clear appearance. The white froth forms a close but brief crown. Sugary – brown sugar & honey- aromas with some diacetyl & apple notes. Sweetish & herbal upfront. Light to medium body. Moderately high carbonation. Warming alcohol. Sweet malty & dried finish. Pretty correct if compared to other Euro Strong Pale Lager.

Bottle. Quickly: this tastes like amped up Red Stripe. Nice faintly sweet caramel on the tongue. You can’t tell this is 9% alcohol at all. I will drink this again if I find it.
