On the nose I detected the faint scent of Hobo. The beer had only two flavors, alcohol and water. This beer pretty much sucked on all fronts except one. I am a soldier who just got into the kygyck republic and this is what they serve us. It is almost 9% so it helps to get you drunk. Avoid this disgrace if you have the chance.
Bottle, 450mL. 8%. Home. Purchase ("La Maison Russe", @Saumur, FR). A golden clear beer, bubbly, medium white head with an ok retention ; ok lacing. Honey notes, sugar, cereal, herbal note. Medium round sweet, quite warming. Medium heavy body, light to meidum oily texture, average carbonation, sweet warming dry lasting finish. Overall, dull. I won't finish this one. edgallow (4362) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 7, 2017

500 mL bottle shared by ebone1988. The pourbusbapour nice darker golden yellow with a thin, yet strong, head of white with a very soapy lace. The aroma is definitely corn heavy. There is a syrup and an aroma that is like you just opened a can of corn, and are smelling the water. There is a metallic malt and a hint of earthiness. It's strange. The flavor is hit as good. The corn water hit is sharp and syrupy with a strong sweetness. It's almost off putting. The mouth feel is lighter to medium bodied with a sharper carbonation and a quick fading corn syrup sweetness. Meh. 5 4 4 3 11 ebone1988 (2071) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - SEP 17, 2017
Bottle from Merchants. Bottle shared with koleminer20. Aroma is booze, rotten corn, sweet, some funk, pretty bad. Appearance is straw golden, clear, white head. Taste is very sweet, corn, malty, booze, metallic, not much in the hop department, some fruit I guess, wrong. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, light crisp carbonation, super sweet corn and booze water aftertaste. Overall, I guess I shouldn't have expected much, it's pretty bad but not all in all terrible.

450ml bottle into shaker. From bottle shop in Beverly Hills, NSW. Clear amber beer with small foamy white head which becomes a film on top. No lacing. Medium carbonation. Smells of berries and malt. Full body, smooth texture. More berries, more malt in the flavour and alcohol really noticeable in the finish. Harsh but goes well with the Vietnamese chili sauce I'm cooking with at the moment.

light gold color; sweet, light malt aroma; earthy malt flavor; just a bit sweet with some hoppy bitterness; fairly well balanced; Stew41 (2066) - Phuket, THAILAND - AUG 13, 2017
Old skool strong sweet lager; a product of a bygone era perhaps? Used to be plenty of options 10yrs ago :) Sweet with seductive ABV kick.
