Slight skunky smell, deep golden color, fluffy head. Nice bitterness, sweet after taste. Has an impressive head on it that quickly disappears. That's about the only good things I have to say. If you drink it everything goes down hill from there! Very off smell unsatisfing with a horrible metal after taste.Seems stronger than 5.9%. This is an average beer at best.

Less than average appearing brew, nice deep golden colour with an extremely short head, even that had a very short duration. If it wasn't for the medium carbonation, the appearance is of apple juice.
Aroma slightly grassy.
Body is a medium.
Taste is fairly well balanced but lacks personality, No linger, bland.
Only thing that works here is the ABV, if that is what you are into.

This is a very sweet and watery beer. It also has a fair bit of carbonation and a hint of malt. This tastes almost like a light Malt Liqour. If that's your bag of tea then this beers for you.

When it comes to other strong beers, there are better ones out there with higher alcohal (ie Holsten Maibock). If you just want to get drunk but don't want to too quickly, then this is a cheap choice.

Looks pretty bland, pale and of no consequence. However it does make an impression when you smell it: burnt rubber. I am not looking forward to the next step which is to taste it. Okay here goes.

Ech. Like water out of a tin can left in the garage.

Mouth feel is about all I can say it has going for it and I'm saying that just to be knd.

Ugh it makes me want to reject beer and that can't be right.

Grabbed a six pack of bottles, pours out a yellow macro color, with 2 inch head. Smells alright for a stronger beer, smells corny, boozy, not all that bad. Taste is not good nor bad, goes down smooth atleast, has no bitterness, and a tad sweet. You can tell its stronger. Has a full mouthfeel, its alright. This is ok to drink cold, its not all that bad. On the fence.
