Summat deeply weirds going on here, but my friends and I were more than keen on trying a beer that sounds a bit like "Halifax" and was for sale in Berlin for under the minimum unit price in the UK in ridiculous litre cans at 10%. Imagine blending any old lager in with a bag of picknmix, possibly including the picknmix wrappers, and you have Faxe. Dont expect to be able to open your eyes properly after having it. Drunk from the can as it slowly went to room temperature, at which point it tasted like summat youd find under the settee. Dont know whether Im rating it cruelly or kindly.

50cl can, random shop in Niamey. Attrocious beer that under the 40+ weather of Niamey quickly turns into a nasty boozy experience. Dore, lger ple, col blanc. malt cara ple, pas mal de sorte de vieux biscuits et surtout de sucre rsiduel pour pousser cette bte 10%. Rien en terme de saveur houblonne tant en arme que en bouche, minimaliste.

1pint Can shared at home with the Fam, sourced from shop at CPH Airport - clear golden pour white head. Aroma and taste is overt sweet malty, straw, hay, with some grainy and subdued grassy notes, with some additional corn sweetness, overt strong boozy finish.

Lot of people are just plain pretentious and cant enjoy a okay beer that isnt made to make you Wow! But perhaps, yes, make you drunk wihthout tasting shit wich is a blessing! And, this is what the FAXE 10% is all about: people that have good taste as well as a sens of relativity for their epicurian cry baby or cry drunky need will enjoy this ultra cheap beer that dont taste ultra cheap beer. When you drink this, you dont taste cheap alcool ,neither you will consider it as a Malt Ultra Sugary Liquor, nope, juste a somewhat strong beer that will certainly not please to people that can just drink gentle beer, still, I dont consider this as a survivor beer, anyway, you will taste the corn, the hops and the malt, but at they end you will not vomit.

Lattina. Lintensit olfattiva normale e la persistenza olfattiva sufficiente. Il cappello di schiuma ha una discreta resistenza. La grandezza delle bollicine medio-fine. La consistenza del liquido limpida. Il colore giallo dorato carico. Il corpo pieno. Il dolce medio e lamaro medio: non si surclassano. Lintensit gustativa normale e la persistenza gustativa sufficiente. Il gusto estremo a causa dellelevato tenore alcolico. Il finale semplice. Laroma in bocca riporta sentori di miele, frutta secca, luppolo, agrumi e fiori.

Sweet grain, golden with a good white head, alcohol and alcohol the only thing i can remember...but is not the worst of this type of industrial beer.

Aus der Bchse getrunken (Supermarktkauf). Voll der Alk und mit Malzse. Knallt weg. Mehr aber auch nicht.

1L can from a random German petrol station. Pours clear dark gold necklace with a large, pearly white frothy head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is heavy fruity and perfumey alcohol with moderate floral notes and some sweet cornbread underneath. Flavor is sweet and boozy sweet cornbread with flowers and fruity notes, some lingering spiciness and a sweet finish. Full body and moderate carbonation. In the spirit of Danish ticking I only consumed 10 mL of this can so there are at least 99 more ticks available. At any rate Ill pour the remaining 990 mL out for my fallen homies since there are no ratebeerian tickers nearby.

1L can - thanks Jookos for this beaut!
Smells of seafood initially, maybe thats the tapwater in the hotel I used to rinse the glass?!? Gets a bit maltier later. Apple skins in the taste, maltier later. Watery palate. Some boost here, but its not hot, there are no fusels that I can detect. Pretty solid cleanish macro ML. Most of us, in particular VastActiv and I, went back to the can several times. Whether the rule that nobodys allowed to leave and go to the beer festival until the can is finished had anything to do with that, Im not sure.

Alcohol burn at the end, not tasty at all. Too much. Not worth it. Just say no, lol.
