Uma pilsen forte, com amargor marcante. Cor amarela e espuma branca. Aroma bem discreto.

Drank ice cold and poured into a chilled glass. Pleasing dark toffee colour with lightly foaming head. Robust lager aroma with hints of Christmas Cake. A couple of good swallows in and we have punchy hop flavours coming through and a pleasant bitterness which is instantly satisfying. The alcohol is there in the finish which is to be savoured. A thumping good brew for grown-ups and by far the best super strength lager on the shelves of Blighty.

Probably the best beer in the world, beyond any doubts. Even though it is a super strength lager, it is very easy on the palate, and very drinkable. Even after 3, it has left the taste to long for a 4. Not so with too many strong lagers.

Can. In a plastic glass at my hotel. I’m dreading this but just drinking it to get my last English county. Anyway, as it’s not served in a brown paper bag, it’s clear dark golden with a big white head. Aroma of metal, caramel, malt and alcohol. Flavour is moderate sweet and bitter. Light medium bodied with light carbonation.

Can. Clear pale yellow Aroma of flowers and hops. Taste sweet, slight beer bitter. Strange. No freshness at all. Alcoholic

Malaysian can at 8.8%. Pours amber with a white head. Malty sweet aroma. Heavy sweet and bitter, unbalanced with lots of alcohol.

Maris (1553) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - DEC 28, 2016
From a 500ml can on 28/12/2016 (ABV listed as 9%, Xmas gift courtesy of Desmond, who apparently developed a fondness for this when OS). Pours a clear medium golden with little head. The nose is mainly sweet malt with a bit of grain. In the mouth, there’s biscuit malt, very sweet but indistinct fruitiness, and a mild bitterness at the back. Full bodied and slightly syrupy, with average carbonation. Probably a decent brew if you’re looking to get hammered, and a delight compared to standard Carlsberg. But a pretty pedestrian imperial lager.

Hong Kong - 500ml can at 8.8%. Very strong, can definitely taste the alcohol in it. Quite malty beer with a bit of caramel. Not bad.

labeerinthum (987) - Milano, ITALY - NOV 25, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 26, 2016 Bottiglia. Il gusto al naso finisce sull’orzo. L’intensità olfattiva è normale e la persistenza olfattiva è sufficiente. Il cappello di schiuma ha una buona tenuta ed è persistente. La carbonazione è media. La consistenza del liquido è limpida. Sono presenti bollicine medio-fini spinte verso l’alto e bolle grandi che rimangono ferme, aderenti al vetro. La carbonazione è media. Il colore è giallo ambrato. Il corpo è medio. La struttura è sottile. L’amaro è moderato. L’intensità gustativa è leggera e la persistenza gustativa è sufficiente. Le sensazioni boccali finali sono di facile beva. Il finale è secco, pulito, dissetante e semplice. Il retrogusto è di media intensità. L’aroma in bocca riporta sentori di caramello, miele, cereali e frutta secca. L’alcol dichiarato come presente non si fa sentire.

Came back to try this, and drunk cold, it still has some interesting flavours for a lager. Not for everyday drinking, but better than many supermarket offerings
