ThirstyStudent (27) - London, Kent, - JUL 17, 2013
This beer is a staple of the tramp diet and I am a regular drinker of this tipple. I first tried this in the hope that it would taste a bit better than Special Brew. How wrong I was. This 9.0% beer has the signature paint stripper smell and taste bud-killing palate to match. However, with most other high strength beers, it can become bearable with frequent drinking. It smells like a mixture of cheese, gasoline with a little bit of actual beer in there, the can it comes in is unmistakable with SUPER written all over it to make sure nobody overlooks the trampy-ness of this beer. It can be seen in the hands of the homeless everywhere and is gaining a strong rep amongst the students out there today, partially thanks to all the street corner shops selling it for £1:20 a pop. Nethertheless, this beer is a definite must try for all, once you can get over the cardboard like taste and the hammering hangover, this head spinning potion is a sure fire way to drunk-dome and will soon be one of your favourite super beers.

Keg @La Internacional, Oviedo, several times back in the 1990´s.
So i found this Tennent´extra and thought it was this one renamed, but seems they are two different beers. So here we go with this one:
One of my first "international" beers. I remember this one as a boozer, palate warmer, overall sweet, some adjuntc maybe. DMS. Quite poor.

Lonick (2537) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 2, 2017
Can @home. Pours golden, white head, solid and long lasting. Nose big caramel, caramac candy bar, big hay/grass, it smells sweet. Taste is caramel/toffee, if dust had a taste i would say it tasted dusty. Bitter at first overly sweet finish, also for 9% very thin.

Strongest beer in the menu. Also the cheapest. 6/8 people from my table ended throwing up. Overall 0.9 score but definitely would repeat the experience again

Bought this can from the local off license. Smells alright. Served up Ice cold and drank straight from the can; no messing about with what it looks like etc. This is no nonsense gear with a robust lager taste and good wallop of alcohol. Right amount of fizz with a clean boozy finish. A good all round strong beer. Drinkable, tasty and hits the spot. A drink for blokes, not hipsters.

TychoJames (1523) - �rebro, SWEDEN - JUL 19, 2017
UPDATED: JUL 19, 2017 Flaska inhandlad i Arona, Italien. Klar gyllenfärgad vätska. Brödig doft med äpple och lite metallisk doft. Sötaktig och bitter smak. Spritig

2.3
Bosbouw (3037) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - JUN 10, 2017
Heldere gouden kleur met een goede kraag. Ruikt zoetig, pils. Smaakt zoetig mout.

Milter (1078) - Nyborg, DENMARK - MAY 28, 2017
Noget af det ringeste europæiske øl jeg nogensinde har smagt. Alkohol og ikke spor andet.

0.7
ramboraffe (2257) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 3, 2017
330 ml bottle at pizza stand in Naples, Italy. Drank directly from the bottle. Sweet boozy with canned corn and alcohol. Sweet with low bitterness and medium carbonation.Could not finish the bottle. This is disgusting.

1.2
ArtificialCyst (1406) - Szczecin, POLAND - APR 10, 2017
Bottle in a bar in Tagliuno, Lombardia. WHAT AN AWFUL BEVERAGE, GOSH. Smell of booze and esters. Taste of booze, some bready malts and esters again. No biterness. Low body, high carbonation, semi-sweet finish. No head, golden body.
