leaparsons (10130) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2004
Bronze with a loose head of white foam. Aromas are sweet then...nothing. This tastes of sweet water and is quite syrupy in the mouth. The alcohol is hidden somewhere - I can't really sense it. Ah, that "Old purple tin".

allmyvinyl (9808) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 12, 2016
440ml can from Scotmid. 8%. Pours clear golden with a thin white head. Aromas of sugar, malt, cooked vegetables, something metallic. Taste is sweet. Nothing much else going on. Builds to a pretty rank climax though. Something suggesting poor drainage or immense gastric distress. And after all that, still not as bad as I was expecting!

DuffMan (9741) - 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!

deanso (9717) - the Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 7, 2016
50cl can. Thick creamy white head. Clear golden pour. Nasty chemical aftertaste. Dreadful

ManVsBeer (8927) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2013
Can. Golden with a very small head. Has a deep and heavy lager aroma, but expected at this strength, as is the heavy taste.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2006
Canned. An orange gold coloured lager which pours with a large whitish head, but diminishes to a pool of tan bubbles. The aroma is sweet and a little industrial with perfumed notes. The taste is also sweet and features strong alcohol tastes. There is lots of orange fruit flavours in the background like other European Malt Liquors. Obviously strong and it goes straight to the head, but nowhere near as bad as some others have remarked or as I was expecting.

Light golden colour and clear. Has a white head, moderate lasting. Light hoppy aroma, Moderate bitter finish. Lightly watery texture.

motelpogo (7705) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 17, 2003
i'd been avoiding this beer for quite some time but some time but desperation to try a new beer got the better of me. no worse than i expected, harsh metalic metho flavours and pretty nasty afterburn
