[draught] I used to remember it was just too sweet for me, but the other night I decided to give it another try... and, well, I almost liked it. I admit it was a hot and sultry night, and a drink (any drink!) was definitely appreciated, but fact is that it was sweet but not cloying; the alcohol was strong but not overpowering. Smooth mouthfeel. DJMonarch (9179) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2006

Didnít actually occur to me this was a different beer to the standard lager when I purchased a 3 euro pint of it at some random side by during happy hour.
I especially didnít notice how strong it was until I finished it!
Anyway, suprisingly drinkable for it strength. Malty, quite clean, alcohol is subtle at low temps.
