A boozy version of their blonde. Dominant booze in aroma, and some regular beer. A bit creamy. Malt taste and malt aftertaste. Competes with malt liquors. Thanks for the sample Pootz/Pootzboy

A little skunky, probably from the clear glass though. Golden straw color. Unlike the Kerstmis, you can tell this is a strong one. Very malty sweet feel with no dry counter. Just okay. Cheers!

Bottle...clear shows a pale gold beer small rocky head from a hard pour leaves lacing...low carbonation . Aroma of boiled grains, some sour smells. Grainy thin mouth feel, poorly hidden alcohol..harsh finish...not good beer. Perhaps this is for the St. Ides 40 oz crowd who have the ocasional beer uptown.

Amber in colour but with little head. Lots of malt in aroma but sickly sweet. Same for the taste, to much german style hops to balance the sweetness, some warmth coming from the alcool. Trying to go overboard with the malts and hops, not a nice upscale Colt 45.

I keep changing my mind about this one but I enjoyed this sample a lot. A touch of sweet, with enough alcohol notes to remind you that it's got a bit of kick to it.

(650ml Bottle) Frothy, white, quick dissipating head and an amber body. Aroma of sweet malt, whiskey, cereal. Flavours of flowery hops, sweet molasses malt and a somewhat alcohol and bitter finish. Complex but uneventful...

Rich gold, light gold head to it. Makes my tounge tingle at the back like an electric shock.. not really that great of a feeling. Rotten wet cereal smell... Malt LIQUOR? Wouldn't lick her if I knew her. Better then the cheap swill malt liquors you see the old boys drinking.... FAXE 10% anyone???? I wouldn't recomend this beer. I think I have gut rot.... or a diabetic curse happening.....

Clear pale copper colour. Malty aroma with alcohol becoming more prominent as the beer warms. Nice malt taste . Not too much of an alcohol taste. One of the better strong lagers.

One of the more flavorful beers from the Amsterdam line. Alcohol gave this beer a nice fruity taste and the caramel color was nice too but this reminds me too much of Hurrican malt Liquor.

radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 23, 2003
Clear red amber colour. Aroma of slight malts, some alcohol. Flavour is weak, with only a small malt presence. Thin, bland, uninteresting finish.
