Sweet bitter malt aroma. Crystal clear amber colour with good head and lacing. Malt spicy flavour with sour aftertaste. Fizzy palate.

DuffMan (10728) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 31, 2006
This was definitely among the top 5 worst beers I have yet tried! Deep gold, no head, wet-dishrag aroma. Sticky sweet palate followed by incredibly harsh medicinal alcohol finish. Truly undrinkable!

ThomasE (5174) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 24, 2006
Dark golden colour with an off white head. Malty, light caramel sweet aroma with a note of alcohol. Sweet malty flavor with notes of alcohol in the finish.

Papsoe (25055) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 23, 2006
(Bottle 33 cl) Clear, fully golden with a small, white head. Aroma of malt, brewing syrup and alcohol. Rather full-bodied with a heavy sweetness and distinct notes of corn. Slightly sulphurous finish. Drinkable and better than it’s reputation - although that’s not saying much. 200106

joergen (29360) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 22, 2006

Sweet aroma of malts and caramel.
Flavour of malts and caramel with notes of alcohol.

hopscotch (11313) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 26, 2005
Can... Clear, deep gold lager with a large, frothy/whispy, off-white head. Terrific retention. Smells like a pub. Tastes like a vodka boilermaker... strong and alcoholic. Full-bodied and oily with medium carbonation. Finishes bitter, alcoholic and downright harsh. Thanks go out to my friend Dai for bringing the can back from her trip to Europe.

ALLOVATE (3074) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 18, 2005
Wow, a cheap night out guaranteed, all you need are a couple of these. Tasted from the pint sized can and poured into a stein glass. Clear, yet oily looking, medium gold body with a thick and dense pad of foam for a crown, that lasted and left webs of lace down the glass (hard to fault on looks). Boiled shrimp broth and ’fairy floss’ candi nose, extra sweet with an underpinning note of hot ethanol. Sweet and husky in the mouth, the ethanol takes hold quickly and it became a portal to my larrikin years of swigging vodka with a beer chaser, this was hot!!! Sweet congealed sugar flavours slowed the onset of warming alcohol and made for a deadly mix for the unwary. It was honestly an easy drinker, the malt seems to have been replaced by dextrose and I fear a hangover for the morning as it did go down with ease. Light bodied and spritzy in carbonation, it did become unbearable as it warmed and proved to be nothing more than a poser beer for the headstrong. Not my cup of beer!!!
