I always over look this type of stuff when I see it on the shelf in supermarkets, as the price tag puts me off - $4 - $7 for the big can. Seems like cheap shitty lager. I was quite impressed with it though. It had a firm malt flavour that hid the 12%abv well. No new hops to speak of, however the ballance was earthy with slight herb.

Maakun (5181) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 19, 2017
Can at THT, bought when I was drunk in Belgium. Clear golden with small white head. Sweet cardboard, pils malts, massive sugar, light herbs, pure alcohol. Basically just sugar and alcohol. Very very sweet. Over medium bodied.

lkowalkowski (334) - POLAND - MAR 10, 2017
Barwa złota, klarowne. Piana słaba, szybko znika. Aromat trochę owocowy, alkoholowy. W smaku dominuje alkohol, goryczka prbuje się przybić ale nie do końca się jej udaje.

ectuohy27 (1127) - ESTONIA - NOV 28, 2016
Weirdly light, normal-lager-seeming brew with relatively nothing much going on, except the 120% stronger kick. Certainly drinkable by my standards (16.9 oz can, nachtwinkel Elsene)

susonagger (202) - spain, - AUG 19, 2016
Su sensacin es aterciopelada sobre un manto de ligero amargor. Es una cerveza densa en boca que relega a la garganta un carcter suplementario ms severo con matices a de madera, con cierto tono toque picante a nivel de lengua. Destaca su sabor alcoholizado que llega desde el paladar hasta el final de la boca, donde deja un largo y excelente recuerdo. Es imperativo consumirla muy fra, a fin de preservar el peculiar sabor que tanto nos seduce.

erickok (5941) - Leuven, BELGIUM - FEB 28, 2016
Horrible filtered looks, grey head. Sugar, full of alcohol, ethanol even. Ricola candy, alcohol heat. Horrible aroma but taste is somewhat acceptable. Just alcohol and those Alps herbs, but I expected a dreadful alcohol water taste. So still poor but I could finish the bottle. (33cl bottle from Comptoir Ferme de Mont-Saint-Jean)

The_Osprey (7825) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 18, 2015
Nov 2015 - 500ml can picked up in a petrol station in Brussels, shared in Steves car. As Gordon Finest Platinum XXXtra Strong, 12%, BB Nov 2016. Everything about this beer exudes class. Dark amber orange, clear, small foamy off-white head. Aroma is apple skin, grains, background vinegar. Cheese on crackers with an apple chutney. Smells of the middle classes. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is paper, cardboard, white pepper, dry. Not too boozy given the 12%. In Belgium, its possible to pick up far better beers that are much cheaper than this. So whats the point?

Theydon_Bois (18936) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 30, 2015
Can, picked up from a petrol station on the N6 outside of Brussels, boosted in the passengar seat of Rilesters car from a paper cup, 21/11/15. Clear golden with a decent egg shell white covering. Nose is grain, malt, booze, hint of caramel, light pish, bready malt, fruit rinds. Taste comprises grain, semi sweet malt, harsh booze tones, raw alcohol. Full bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close steeped in booze. A touch harsh but ultimately good boost juice.
