This reminded me a lot of the canadian 7% examples. Clear gold, small head. Heavy grape and sweet corn aroma. Plenty of cheese oddly enough, more than I care for really. Bitter, earthy hop profile. Easy going finish, touches of citrus in this one at the end.
Bottle, Philippines brewed, 6.5%. Poured clear gold with a small white head. Aroma of malt, grain and alcohol. Quite sweet, with moderate bitterness. Sticky texture, average carbonation. rayaron (2074) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - DEC 9, 2016

Bottle poured to pint glass very cold beer Appearance: Light orange, minimal head, a lot of lacing Aroma: scent smell of malt, nothing else Taste: not really great Mouth feel: very carbonated Overall: good beer for the hot weather in the Philippines, and not to get drunk since it is soda the most inexpensive way JorgeLee (2280) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2015
From the can, in a meeting with the company management in Manila! This beer is clearly neither retired nor was it brewed in California, but what the system says goes! Golden colour. Actually reasonably smooth for such a strong beer, some malty sweetness but not aggressively boozy. More bitterness might have been nice. Desverger (13759) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 28, 2015
