Can 100 cl. Pours a clear golden with a small white head and an aroma of alcohol, sugar, ripe apples, sweet malts and syrup. The last is very sweet and boozy with just a little bit of hoppy bitterness in the finish. Totally forgettable

August 2016 - Big boy 1 litre can share at Chriso’s Pre-GBBF Shindig, Day 1. Thanks! As Faxe 10%. So, people drink litres of this 10% beer in one go? Wow. Dark yellow orange, clear, lightly sparkling, big foamy white head, full lacing. Aroma is papery, apple, malt sugars, musty. Body is light, soft carbonation, a bit foamy. Taste is papery, booze, crackers, light bread. Drinks well, hides the ABV, good value for those only concerned with alcohol content. Not as bad as I was expecting.

Can. Orange color with white head. Aroma is sweet malts, quite sugary. Taste is the same, a bit spicy, a bit wet paper/cardboard. The alcohol is well hidden. Not as bad as expected.

The great ChrisO pre GBBF gathering. Can. Bright clear gold beer, tidy white head. Palate is light, semi dry and has decent carbonation. Very sweet malts. Banana esters. Little dried fruits. Light dry finish. Clunky but not terrible.
