yngwie (16876) - 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 (12063) - 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].

gunnfryd (14647) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 14, 2008
Bottle. Golden colour with a white head. Aroma is alcohol, malt, sugar. Flavour is alcohol, malt, sugar. Too much alcohol in the flavour.

Sten (751) - Westerlo, BELGIUM - NOV 26, 2008
Hazy orange coloured beer with a small white head. Flavour is a bit alcoholic and watery. Very light body but ok beer. I was expecting worse. Especialy because it was expired for 2 years, maybe it got better. (can 50cl)

madquacker (1133) - Canberra ACT, AUSTRALIA - NOV 2, 2008
All up a sweet cheap corn too high in alcohol concoction which is very unbalanced. The ABV kicks in with a bit of a buzz but can’t say it is pleasant. Sits on the back of the throat for some time. No doubt good for sculling in the streets of Glasgow before picking a fight.

Bullit (4559) - Burgos, SPAIN - OCT 5, 2008
Golden colour, small lasting white head. Aroma has alcohol, some malts, metallic. Flavour is alcoholic, metallic with some sweet malts. The first half of the can is most difficult to get through, but overall this beer is just horrible.

chiara schiuma media persistenza disreta il naso non ampio malto etilico in bocca piuttosto frizzante malto molto etilico finale leggermente amaro

REDBOSOX (80) - Vineyard Haven, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 31, 2008
The best thing about this beer is that it’s 9% ABV. You need to be drunk to enjoy this stuff. The flavor, in my opinion, is something you might get if you stick some metal in your mouth while you’re chewing some black licorice. Drink it very cold otherwise you will not be able to finish it. To me, it’s a sacrilege to dump beer. I’ve dumped this stuff before. Drink it if it’s free. Don’t bother paying for it.

On tap, golden colour, medium white head, some malt and very strong alcohol presence in aroma, metallic bitter flavor, bitter and alcoholic finish.
