2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
500 ml can (8.9% ABV, brewed in Slovenia). Dark canary yellow, perfectly clear, no head to speak of, just a tiny ring of foam. On the nose honey, dark bread, sweet malt. Cloyingly sweet in the mouth, quite astringent, very malty as expected. Almost no bitterness whatsoever. Warming alchool. Soft to average carbonation, medium body, slightly creamy texture. Not terrible but not that pleasent either.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Canned 500ml. -from Auchan Torino. Yellow/pale golden coloured, medium sized airy white head that went away fast, alcohol in the nose. Sweet malty, alcoholic and pretty much nothing else. Sweet finish. Similar to Polish extra strong beers but not so offensive alcohol kick as I’ve expected.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Courtesy of ogivlado... just couldn’t wait to try this one. 8.9% supermarket lager. Can’t be bad.. Heh. Anyway. Golden body, medium sized white head that lasted awhile. Alcohol vs. maltiness inte nose. Blah. Sweet malty taste, vaguely fruity (some odd strawberry?), very light alcohol, hardly aggressive, slightly oily, but, again, far from undrinkable. Serviceable.
