ectuohy27 (1181) - ESTONIA - JAN 16, 2017
Bought at Carrefour Brussels. Surprisingly rich and layered for a strong lager, with a rather bitter, un-alcoholic finish. Dark gold appearance, very nice head. Drinkable and not terrifying Rubin77 (2133) - Brussels / Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JAN 24, 2016
F: white, pretty stable, average size.
C: clear, gold.
A: malty, straw, alcohol, white sugar sweetness/fruitiness, yeast.
T: malt, nice sweetness, marzipan, banana, caramel, molasses, hint of some grass bitterness, medium body, good carbonated, alcohol not too much detectable, for this kind of beer quite surprise, 89c for 0,5l can in Carrefour in Brussels, not bad, may be lack of more bitterness.

50cl can into a ’Cobra’ pint glass at home on 27th Dec 2015. Typical lager/pilsner look: bright, clean and clear, golden with a white crown. Corn like aroma with a sweet malty/grainy taste, alcohol too the fore but better than I expected to be honest. Bought in a Brugge supermarket, glad I took the chance on it, not too bad at all.

One of those cheap, canned, extra strong Euro pale lagers (the northern European equivalent of American malt liquor), from a Carrefour supermarket. Thick, coarse, strongly cobweb-lacing, snow white head over a cristal clear, warm ’old gold’ coloured beer with lively sparkling. Aroma cannot hide a strong presence of peppery, gin-like alcohol next to impressions of white bread dough, powder sugar, damp cloth, iron, bourbon, dried banana, wet paper, dull sourish grains. Sweet onset, no esters, more a maltose-like ’sugariness’, bit banana-like, bland but not cloying, medium carbo, very smooth, somewhat oily body, somewhat metallic but less so than I had feared, simple pale malt sweetness with still a caramelly touch lending it a bit more body than many other examples of the style; a dash of grassy hop bitterishness is added in the finish but only mildly so, and as expected, the alcohol is overly present, wodka-like with even a slight burn to it, above all that malt and sugary maltose sweetness and a bit astringent. This is another typical cheap alcoholics’ strong lager for sure, but it has a bit more body to it than usual and though the alcohol is inevitable, I had many examples (like that horrible Atlas series) which do a far worse job at vainly trying to hide it. One of the better examples of a generally dreadful lager style, almost feels like the bottom-fermented counterpart of the sweet side of Belgian tripel (which was probably the intention).
