3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark golden, clear beer, well-carbonated to small, yellow head. Nose of alcohol, sherry, higher alcohols, and despite all this, delicate. Sherry again in the taste, sweet, but not too sweet; cookies and fine grains. Bit of alcoholwarming, not really dry; medium bodied. Nice, if not really Belgian, this is quite good, IMO. According to the brewery, this ought to be a Belgian Pale strong ale.

Ooooh, Iím the tenth rater, and thus the íGiver Of Percentile Statusí! This is an interesting position for me to be in, as I didnít find this beer to be nearly as aweful as the other raters did. Maybe its because I had it in Singapore, from a bottle, with a best before date of 06.2006 (6 months from now). Anyway, this poured a deep amber with a thick head generating excellent lace and showing long retention (not a bad start-- good marks for appearance, considering its a lager). Very malty aroma, with a noticable fruity hop character. Chewy malt palate, heavy mouthfeel, with a sweet ripe-banana note on the finish. The alcohol is apparent and very warming, but not harsh or overpowering. Still, after finishing a 600ml bottle, I was ready for a sleep by the pool! Anyway, I am definitely the anomaly amongst the general attitude towards this beer, but I have to remain honest and say that this was a decent example of a strong lager.

Canned. A golden beer with a medium beige head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of caramel and alcohol. The flavor is sweet malty with strong notes of alcohol, leading to a dry and very alcoholic finish.

This widely available malt liquor is often the only thing on Singapore supermarket shelves apart from Tiger and Heineken. Itís made with imported European hops and malts and Iíd say it was a fairly decent knock-off of Carlsberg Special Brew, also occasionally found in these parts. I guess Iím in a minority in not minding either beer. Wouldnít actively seek them out but most of the time Iíd rather drink this than Tiger/Heineken. This was deep gold and held its head well. The aroma was soft, sweet and not especially beer-like. More like watery tropical fruit cordial and canned pear juice with some faint pale malts mixed with a shot of Vodka. Medium bodied and sofly carbonated, creating quite and oily mouthfeel. The first sip offers some Juicy Fruit chewing gum and marmalade fruitiness before a big blast of alcohol. There are some bready malts holding it all together. Lots of fusels in the finish. Call it sacrilege but this is like a very coarse, very distant relation to Duvel. (330ml can from a Singapore supermarket)
