320ml Can from 7-Eleven in Kuala Lumpur:
Straw with a 0.5cm foamy white head that settles to almost nothing except a couple of bubbles after about thirty seconds.

Lots of sweetness, syrup and sugar to begin with a lot of adjuncts too and some corn. Quite sickening on the nose and a little sharp, not to mention a lot of alcohol coming through as well.

Strong alcohol initially, laced with a huge amount of sweetness and corn. I was struggling to detect anything over the alcohol and a sickening taste of sugar and adjuncts, In a word, disgusting. This one was close to making me sick after a few sips.

Light bodied, tonnes of alcohol and sickeningly sweet. To be honest I can't get past the foul taste to say anything much about the mouthfeel; terribly unbalanced should cover it though.

An incredibly strong, very unbalanced and all round terrible beer. It started fairly average although not terribly with the smell not doing much for me but the taste was truly awful and in all I think I managed about 5 sips of this one before the rest made its way down the drain.

Not so bad taste, but too strong indeed (0.625l bottle was more than enough)
