Poured from a 16.9 oz. can. Has a golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of malts and grains, some sweetness. Taste is sweet, malts, alcohol is present but not overpowering, as is common for this style. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent beer.

Can looks like that of the normal Bear Beer except it says "Premium Strong Beer" instead. Abv differs from that of stark beer at 7.5% as does can color.

A-Clear yellow gold w/fine head, avg retention, little bit of lacing.

S-Strong malt at first that is pleasant. Underneath it's a little grainy w/a hint of booze. Faint hops.

T-Compared to its peers under this style it's okay. Slightly sweet and boldly malty upfront, but the finish is boozy and warm w/bits of noble hops. No off-flavors...just boozy and grainy like most examples of this style.

M-Body borders on the heavier side of light-bodied beers. Moderate carbonation. Balance is fine, aftertaste is a little syrupy and sweet from the "glucose syrup" added to boost the abv, although the hops seem to do a decent job balancing out what is borderline cloying.

D-Nothing to brag about, but better than most Euro strong lagers. The malt is of higher quality, which many other brands seem to skimp on. This product is mildly overpriced, probably due to its import status and availability (purchased at LeClerc in France).

Well without further ado, poured from the can...

A - About twelve seconds worth of small white head makes an appearance on top of a clear dehydrated athletes urine. You know what I'm talking about.

S - Smells of IHOP pancake syrups, all of them mixed together.

T - Sweet fruits, grape, raspberry, and lemon lead the alcohol spiciness down the throat. There are the syrup flavors again. Cough syrup carbonated, hell yeah, cloying sweetness, of course.

M - Warming, medium bodied with little carbonation.

Overall a hobo would sink pour this.

Amarillo claro, con tonos dorados
Espuma blanca duradera, se queda en el vaso
Sin mucho aroma, poco lupulo,
Sabor agradable pero fuerte por la cantidad de alcohol, se siente el sabor de la cebada
Es una opción acceptale para su estilo, nada excepcional
