Odeurs d' épices douces, raisins secs, fruits de la passion. En bouche pas très gazeuse... Avec un goût assez plat je ne serait pas trop l'identifier...

Embrouille (2843) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 28, 2009
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2016 Bottled 625ml. Appearance: It pours a fully golden beer with a decent average sized white head. Nice lacework. Aroma: Grapes, white bread, cork, nutmeg, apples and rice. Flavor and palate: Rice, apricots, cork, apples and grapes showing up. Champagne-like. The alcohol is very well hidden. Some lemongrass sneaking in? Medium to full bodied. Pepper appearing with the swallow. Huge amounts of grapes, apples and white bread in the finish. Overall impression: A pleasant surprise. This beer is underrated in my opinion. Staying with the initial rating. Really quite enjoyable.

Review: Bottle of Lion Strong Lager 8.80% ABV A Gold medal winner in 2012 from the Monde Selection, the Michelin Guide version of beer, the lager came in some pretty impressive imagery, the bottle showing a very intimidating lion face. I guess signifying strength and prowess. Perhaps his name is Cecil? Pour we have a dark golden colour, with a nice sized white head that dissipates quick enough, leaving pretty good lacing . Looks decent, like a proper beer. Got a very fruity aroma, an apple and a lot of sweet smelling malts. The smell was quite strong, all that fruit! For a lager that is 8.8%, it was very well hidden, not feeling the true strength at all. There is a very fruity taste to this beer, very overpowering. The taste lingers in the mouth, very sweet with a good grain taste. Some bitterness in the aftertaste. Interesting beer alright, could actually be a decent session beer considering the ABV. as it was very easy to drink. I had four of them, and was fine! (I think!).

Christos (5354) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - NOV 17, 2013
Bottle at home, 330 ml. Into a stemmed glass. ABV 8.8% Pours a really deep golden yellow colour beer, with two finger of white head. Thick density, average retention. Medium lacing on the glass. Aroma is sweet, lots of malts and the alcohol already present. Not bad, but after a while it starts to smell kind of medicinal and thats not so good either. Taste is also very sweet and malty. Grass, strong alcohol -not so obvious on the tongue but notable once has gone down-, grains. Medium thick body, carbonation good but towards the low side. Although nothing impressive but still manages to taste better than the local supermarket strong beers.

UPDATED: FEB 12, 2014 Fles van 625 ml gekocht bij de wineshop in Dambulla, Sri Lanka. Gouden kleur, plakkererige kraag. Aroma en smaak zijn niet erg aanwezig, vooral wat zoetigs. Het smaakt in ieder geval niet waterig en de 8.8 % doen hun werk ;-)
