3/5 rDev +7.5%
Poured into a tulip glass. Color was a very clear yellow, had a small head that dissipated in less than a minute.
Slightly bready smell, taste was somewhat bitter and ultimately unredeeming. This beer, even with a high ABV is pretty disappointing. Large bottle does well for sharing (if you're into that thing). Not really worth the time.

3.13/5 rDev +12.2%
Bottle at 35 degrees into standard pint glass
Aroma of grain
Head large (6 cm), white, frothy, slowly diminishing to 2 mm ring and irregular layer
Lacing OK – wide partial rings of various size bubbles
Body light yellow, clear
Flavor begins with grain, alcohol burn starts immediately after swallowing; no hops, no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate medium, watery, lively carbonation
Aroma 3, appearance 3.5, flavor 3, palate 3.5, overall 3.25 Final score: 3.125
I don’t really care for this beer because of the weak taste paired with high alcohol content. It’s OK, but I probably won’t be buying more.

Labeled as an "Extra" Lager which must mean "Strong". 500 ml brown bottle.
Production date: 3-15-2014. Best before: 3-15-2015.
A: Pours a clear pale yellow with a one-inch thick white head which fades to a thin cap and leaves splotches of lace.
N: Corny, grainy, malty, yeasty, with some boozy notes.
T: Grainy and corn-like, sweet, yeasty, slightly metallic, slightly "off" - something odd.
M: Semi-moderate body and medium carbonation. Finishes with a sweet, syrupy corn-like malty and yeasty.
O: There is some crispness, but the higher ABV reduces the lightness of the lager style.

From the 25 fl. oz. bottle. It's old I think. Stamped: 290812-290813. Sampled on 7/11/14.
It pours your basic pale yellow with a fizzy white head, Good clarity. Busy carbonation.
Aroma: Not much excitement here, Russian malts, cardboard, cream, cardboard, but clean crisp hops.
The body is light to medium and somewhat on the smooth side.
Taste: Well, nothing thrilling here. Toasted biscuit malts. sweet caramel, some hop notes but generally pretty boring, Definitely not the kind of "strong ale" I prefer to drink. Although I do feel like listening to to Anya Muzafaroza "Music of the Rain" as I drink it.

Poured from a 51 oz plastic bottle (yes you read that correctly. Pours murky gold with thin white head. The nose is sweet and grainy with notes of musty grapes. The taste is sugary sweet with light grain and more sweetness. Mouthfeel is well carbed with thick body. Overall, this brew is an experience... Not necessarily good.
