Emil (6064) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 22, 2005
Can at Jacob Lövenlunds place. Golden colour with a Big fast dissapering white head. Light alcoholic malty aroma and a sweet caramel malty alcoholic taste. Medium body and a sweet alcoholic finish.

skortila (5966) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - MAY 7, 2007
Canned. Alcoholic, bit malty, bit hoppy aroma. Clear, copper coloured with a large, off-white, frothy head. Taste is very sweet, very alcoholic, sugary, slightly malty and just a bit hoppy. Sticky and burning mouthfeel. This beer is like a nascar racetrack.

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 could’ve been which saves it from being and utter failure and lands it firmly among the regular failures. Fun fun fun.

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2011 Mar, 2003 The Tennents brewery was founded in 1740 in Glasgow. It was taken over by the English brewery Charrington in 1963, which in turn was taken over recently by the global Interbrew. Tennent’s has a long history of brewing lager, being the first British brewery to successfully introduce this vile substance in 1885 after Hugh Tennent visited Germany. Super strong lagers are increasing in popularity due to the success of the down-and-outs’ favourite tipple Carlsberg Special Brew. This imaginatively named Super Strong Lager is a dark urine colour, and sits like a lazy fat slob in the glass giving off a steady stream of gentle gas. The nose is reminiscent of metal, possibly aluminium. Initial taste is sweetness, quite pleasant with a good hit of honey. Firm mouthfeel like a warm duvet, with a gentle carbonation toward the finish just to add a tingle of interest. A very light metallic hop bitterness completes the experience. Very easy to drink for its strength and mostly fairly pleasant. A genuine alcopop for the tramp and slut generation. This will get the consumer drunk with little effort. [1.2]
May, 2008 Drinkable. Full bodied, malty sweet and with no nasty flavours. OK. [2.5]
March, 2011 An enjoyable firm bodied pale beer with a rounded and pleasing character. Few hops. A touch of cereal. This is not the most exciting beer in the world, but, apart from the cereal notes, it is fairly smooth and drinkable with pleasant fruit and malt notes. Cheap as chips from my local corner shop, and very drinkable. [2.7]

Alengrin (5629) - BELGIUM - SEP 6, 2014
Popular strong lager, peach blonde coloured and on sale in 50 cl cans in many supermarkets also in the Low Countries; metallic, sweetish but fortunately not too cloying, one-dimensional with strong alcohol presence as usual in this style. I have to admit I had many examples that were much worse, though.

Theres a reason i walk through glasgow and see even junky scumbag with a can of this, cause its just alcoholic water that is ment only for the scum of the earth. The fact it comes in cans is a good thing though, as it means they can chase u down the street with a bottle.

Bottle. Yellow orange pour with a fizzy white head. Very sweet, heavy boose, rotting fruit, and garbage. Difficult to drink.

2.2
nearbeer (5555) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 9, 2010
33 cl green bottle, from supermercati in Napoli. Orange-golden with a small ring of bubbles. Aroma of scorched rubber, butterscotch and alcohol. Light-medium body is soft and fizzy, dry with alcohol. Tastes of alcohol, menthol, light citrus grass, rubber and caramel apple.
