Well, strong lagers are not my piny of beer, but one in a dozen is a good brew. Unfortunately, not this one.

Color is OK - full golden, very promising. Carbonation level medium. White head, also medium, disappeared in less than a minute. Almost no lace.

Smell faint, malty, with a hint of alcohol.

Taste absolutely bland - not awful, no-no-no, but almost nonexistant. Some malty, hoppy and alcohol notes here and there. Yeah, the body is big, making it hard to swallow. Aftertaste reminiscent of paper drained in white spirit.

Avoid it.

Pours out a golden amber with a nice bright white head which seems to stick around. Sharp bite to this brew. The bite is part alcohol flavor, part hop flavor, and part malt chew. There is a clean fiinish which is helpful because the actual taste is not where I'd like it to be. But the flavor does grow on me. Easy to get ahead of the 7/5% on this one.
