fonefan (45092) - VestJylland, DENMARK - JUN 5, 2009
Can 500ml.
Clear medium yellow orange color with a large, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, toasted, sweet malt, cabbage water notes. Flavor is moderate sweet and moderate to light heavy bitter with a long duration, and a alcoholic finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft, finish feel is light moderate alcoholic. [20090408]

heavy (2806) - Split, CROATIA - MAY 31, 2009
0.5 l can my parents brought from London. It poured darker golden/amber body with bigger head. Just a bit of alcohol in its aroma, malty as well, but fortunately not too strong. Some sweet maltiness in the flavor, alcoholic, but not as much as expected. A bit of earth/sesame spices here as well. Warming finish with a touch of metallicity. Not a complete disaster, but quite aggressive and hardly drinkable brew, which leaves an impression how your head would explode that morning you wake up after getting drunk of this.

0.5l can courtesy of and shared with heavy (thanks!)
Poured a medium to big fluffy white head that went away leaving heaps of lacing on top of a slightly darker golden body. Light but somehow intensive alcohol with some maltiness in the nose. Whooo what fun. Alcohol, warming, some chalky bitterness and sweet maltiness, a bit metallic, and some ok herbal notes hm. Unbalanced and bad but not as cloying as it couldve been which saves it from being and utter failure and lands it firmly among the regular failures. Fun fun fun.

Bevuta anche questa prima di una partita,non esattamente un granch.Della Tennents preferisco al massimo la Stout magari assieme a un bel piatto di spaghetti col sugo di muscoli.E comunque per me la birra scozzese si chiama Traquair e basta.Questa invece non altro che lennesima birra da discount.

emotv (353) - Izmir, TURKEY - FEB 1, 2009
Tasted from a bottle in Italy. Gold and have medium top. Sweet malty taste. But you can feel the alchol. Short finish.

GRcirca1985 (1) - SCOTLAND - JAN 17, 2009 does not count
Can 440ml. Pours gold with white-working class head. Metallic, sweet taste disguises a palate of alcohol, aggression, and unwanted pregnancy. Does the trick if youre willing to settle for tasteless mediocrity.

Thylacine (526) - Tasmania, AUSTRALIA - JAN 17, 2009
A most uninteresting beer. Sweet tasteless with loads of alcohol. No doubt that will appeal to some but not me.

yngwie (16590) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 1, 2009
Bottle. A clear, almost golden beer with an off-white head. Alcohol, fruit, grains and hops in the aroma, quite raw and unpleasant, but not foul. Pale malts, hay, grass and alcohol in the flavor, lacking bitterness, and rather unpleasant, at least until your palate gets used to it. Warming, medium body. The beer is not off, it is not very good. A typical European strong lager, made for the guys in the park and the youth who wants to get drunk fast. (081031)

fata2683 (2176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - DEC 23, 2008
Bottle, pours yellow/orange with a tall rocky white head. Aroma is strong of malts with a good hop aroma that is citric. Taste is slightly sweet and sour with modedrate bitterness. Flavors are borderline tripel but the alcohol is non-existant in the mouth. Carbonation is light and helps it go down easy.

Rune (11499) - Troms, NORWAY - DEC 18, 2008
440ml bottle from Tesco. Golden body with a white foamy head, quickly diminishing. Vapour of alcohol and water. Very one-dimensional in the taste profile with little less than malty flavoured water added by a strong alcoholic component. Short tail and lively carbonated. My last beer during 15 days in St Andrews. Next stop: Standing Order in Edinburgh [10.11.2008].
