Picked this up at Auchan...brewery is in Lille but on the can it says "canned in Holland." Ingredients are also listed: "Water, barley malt, wheat, rice, sugar, hops."

A-Poured a nice clear amber-golden color w/rich frothy off-white head, good retention, and some sticky bits of lacing. A nice-looking brew.

S-Sweet grainy husk, bits of hops, slightly skunky, faint hops, bits of mineral.

T-Decent roasted malt backbone, bits of red apple, but it's overly sweet and a bit syrupy. There's a burnt/roasty sensation and a metallic feeling midway that carry through the finish. Aftertaste sports remnants of faint hop bitterness, minerals, and the sugar.

M-Sweetness dominates, mouthfeel is a bit slick and the metallic and mineral sensations on the back of the tongue are a bit intense. Carbonation is good.

D-Not a fan, but in a weird way I can almost pretend I'm drinking iced tea after you get down halfway. I was able to finish this one without forcing myself, and it has some admirable qualities. I think the brewery just wanted to get in on the malt liquor market, since you don't have to try very hard to beat most of the competition. This candidate, despite its shortcomings, has fewer than most of the competition.

Few things to put under your nose if only alcohol that goes very syrupy. The taste is in the same vein, that is to say, extremely alcoholic and without any other flavors or so. It finds a little liquor, but almost no flavor. Not really finish if it is not a dirty aftertaste and artificial.

50cl can: Picked this up in an Auchan. This one pours a slightly orangish, light amber color. There was a large, white frothy head on this one. It leaves a little bit of lacing. The aroma is musty, caramel malts, some sweetness, maybe a little grainy too. The taste is a bit sweet. Caramel malts, a touch of fruits. It is a bit harsh. Surprisingly there is no real taste of alcohol coming through. A bit metallic aftertaste. It is not undrinkable, as some of these strong beers tend to be. This must be for the younger crowd, interested in buzz for the euro.
