Like the Grolsch Kanon, this is a booze-beer. It is literally mouth-numbingly boozy, with nothing else going on besides.

Pours a lazy lager yellow, virtually headless. Low carbonation. Smells okay at first, but almost immediately after pouring, the booze wafts out, pushing away all other impressions. No solvents, which is about the only positive thing it's got going.

Flavour is booze. Taste is sticky-sweet, with an window-cleaner mouthfeel: the booze tries to convince your mouth it's not as sweet as it is by attempting to dissolve all residues and rinse the mouth clean, but you're still left with a sticky film covering the inside of your mouth.

I found this to be utterly undrinkable, even ice cold. Not because it tastes bad, but because of the horrible booze-presence, and the lack of anything else.

Serving type: can

Atlas 8.5 stronger brother, that 500 ml can was only different in color (black for this one, blue for the lighter version). The similarities don't stop there though since this one has also a clear yellow golden colour and a non-existant head. Smell is stronger with the alcohol easily traceable. Even more in the beer's taste.. I am gonna grade this one the same grades as with the Atlas 8.5, because really there are no differences at all, except from the ABV.
