3.33/5  rDev +6.7%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Poured from a 12 oz bottle single into a hotel water glass. Picked up solo in a Bermudian liquor store.

Pours clear golden, low foam. Some lacing. Blond smell, but light. Full forceful lager taste. Rich, some unsettling bitters. Mineral taste, too.

More potent lager - feel the 7.9% that is for sure. Wouldnt say more than good here.

3.73/5  rDev +19.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured in a tall glass frm a small can of 330 ml.

Pours a golden yellow coloured beer, very clean. White soapy head, 2 fingers.

Smell is of malts.

Nice taste, bitter that leaves you with as sweetness.

thin in body and medium carbonated.

The 7.9 alcohol is there, but not so noticeable, it's just says "Hi" and leaves, to mind its own bussiness. On your liver.

Serving type: can

I've just finished reviewing this beers little brother: the 6.5% ABV Gold 8.6 beer for the French market, I hope this is more balanced and better in every way.

Anyway, here goes a live review: I'm pouring the 25cl brown bottle into a 'Palm special' labelled bulbous tulip. The beer looks like a typical lager/pilsner, maybe a little more darker than most: still golden with a white head that refuses to hang around though, so very lager like.

The smell is sweet and laden with alcohol: malt sweetness with apple blossom if I'm being kind, the alcohol esters however frighten me: no hop element at all.

The taste is 'a headache in waiting' this is all about the alcohol, no attempt to hide or disguise it what so ever. Malty sweetness and not much else I'm afraid.

This is a brown bag on a park bench sort of beer, not my type at all.
