Pale yellow, white head. Malty aroma. Very strong alcohol flavor, some malts but the alcohol kills everything else. saxo (18450) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - OCT 6, 2009
Bottle. Medium head with medium duration. Color is pale yellow. Aroma and taste are malt, sugar, hops and notes of citrus. mcberko (17847) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 20, 2010
Bottle sampled at 99 Bottles, pours pale golden. Basically just a stronger version of the pale lagers - bred, malt, corn and grass. Nothing special here. Oakes (17685) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 29, 2004
Pale straw colour with large bubbles. Slightly grainy, slighty alcoholic aroma. Flavour definintely leans towards alcohol, with just a little bit of graininess.

Pale yellow, small white head. Malty nose, light alcohol, kind of harsh but not unpleasant. Malty, a bit sweet, medium-bodied with a strong alcoholic touch. Anyhow tasty and clean European strong lager.
Bottle. It’s a clear, golden beer topped by a finger-thick white head. Fruity, sweetish nose with pale malts and some higher alcohols. Sweet, full-bodied and warming in the mouth, with fruityness and some bitterness. Not much bitterness though, neither initially nor in the very end. Overall it’s not really a bad beer, but the higher alcohols are a bit disturbing, and I won’t miss it if I never am to drink it again. 090829 brokensail (16449) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 17, 2011
A: The pour is a very pale straw/yellow color with a thin layer of white foam.
S: Smells damp and moldy with some possible fecal notes. Rotting vegetables and a bit time corn aroma. Sickly sweet and cloying. Lots of butter, because we couldn’t have a truly excellent beer without that.
T: Cloying sugar and corn sugar. Oh goodness is this bad. Grape juice, cooked vegetables, butter, just awful. Some definite booze flavors, too.
M: Pretty heavy, unnecessarily so, with a moderate level of carbonation.
D: Jesus Christ. FatPhil (16102) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 10, 2008

Rich straw colour, brief head. First tasting, very little aroma at all. Fleeting taste of unbleached cardboard, then massive, and I mean utterly massive, wave of fruity esters - peach and apple. Then the booze comes over, almost vodka-ey in its direction and potency. Once that subsides, the cardboard’s back again, alas. Finish is a mixture of the tastes. Didn’t finish the bottle (well, would you?), so revisited the next morning. More aroma, but still rather nondescript. Esters are less outrageously prominent, and not quite so cardboardy or boozy either (recently brushed my teeth, though). Per style, this is pretty competent, but it’s not the most delicate style under the sun, that’s for sure. The 5 for taste might be overly generous, but there really is plenty of beery taste in it, and it’s not that rough at all, but the 7 overall is there to counter that generosity, as, hedonistically, it’s not something I’d go out of my way to drink (but it’s not bad, don’t get me wrong). If you’re gonna get wasted, this bottle’s a good choice.
Bottle, 8%. Clear golden colour. Big stable rocky white head. Sweet flavour, quite peppery. Hint of marcipan in the finish. A standard east European strong lager.
