2.11/5  rDev n/a
look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2

Poured 500ml can into a pint glass with filling date on July'10 but no best before date.

A:
Clear dark golden color, big foamy white head with average retention. The head recede into a thin film on the surface. Lacing is not detectable. Rather high carbonation generates fizzy texture.

S:
The smell is alcohol spiciness, subtle toasted, subdued bread and grain disclosure when it warm.

T:
Exhibit the monotonous bitterness with fizzy touch of alcohol and a bit insipid.

M:
The body is medium, too fierce carbonated, pricky touch.

D:
Intend to have heavier character than the original but seem to place extravagant solid portion while abandon the sensibility of taste. It is produce the imbalance gap and put this beer on low drinkable side.

Can from 7-11 in Koh Samui. From notes.

A - Poured a medium golden. One finger white head was gone fast. Bright. OK carbonation. No lace or retention.

S - Pretty faint. Honey, grain.

T - Strong honey. Grain was milder. For the strength it seemed quite tame and lacking flavour. Not adjuncty but had a mild harshness which would probably be from the alcohol. All things said it only offended a tad. Fairly strong sweetness as well.

M - Good carbonation, medium body, sweetness to finish. Decent.

O/D - Not bad for the style/strength. Could be a lot worse for the criteria. Good value for ABV I guess. I don't hate this as much as other reviewers, but it's certainly not something I would recommend.

look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 1 | overall: 1.5

Rich golden straw color. Head dissipates very quickly.

The smell is incredibly sweet and phenolic. Almost a rubbing alcohol edge.

The taste is overbearingly sweet. It doesn't taste as boozy as expected. No hops whatsoever, but it is somehow bitter. I'm curious what exactly they did here.

The mouthfeel is as bad as it gets. it feels like cough syrup. The sweetness sticks with you because of the thickness. Blech.

Drinkability- no. Stay away. The mouthfeel coupled with the sweetnes is what really makes this unbearable.

look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 1 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1.5

A: Medium golden color. Very small head and lacing.
S: Alcohol, grains, sulphur.
T: Alcohol, with a very strong alcohol and metallic aftertaste.
M: Medium to high carbonation. Light body with a creamy mouthfeel.
D: This is one of the worst beers I've ever tasted. I had a pounding headache an hour after drinking this and woke up with a weird metallic taste in my mouth. Steer clear of this beer!
