Pours a nice, clear golden body with lots of soapy head frothing at the top, looking very appealing from the get-go. The scent isn't so bad either, with sharp malt characteristics and noble hops on the nose. The palate is what gets you - a generic lager at the forefront of the tongue transforms into a soapy bitterness towards the back, with nothing more than pure alcohol being detected here. Really drinks like dishwater in general. Awful beer.

An interesting beer form Holland. This 8.6 % ABV have a really nice feeling in mouth. The taste is not too strong and it is fun to drink.

The can I had it is 500 ml can bought in Canada NB.

The color Is a nice clear yellow SRM of 2.

This beer is a must have again.

From Carrefour Huelva. In Bavaria glass. Watching Sons of Anarchy 7x07. Sweet, Not like in belgians but more like in caramel. Not bad, not amazing but can be drinked quick even with its ABV

Fab...8.6. This is drink of choice in Paris for many of the homeless fellas. And me also tonight...

It is basically a beer called a name that is its alcohol content, by Dutchies. The crazy mofos...how creative...

Look is rather see-through and piss like. Fizz lasts about the same time as piss also.

Aroma is like a pub at 5AM combined with ash-trays.

Taste..? Definitely no balance between the flavours and alcohol. Too much carbon dioxide. And ash tray. I am certain that someone has emptied ash trays in this beer...it was not me.

Though is it bad or really bad..? It's close to really bad, though I shall still drink it all anyway. Though the taste is actually better than the 5 AM cigarette butt aroma.

Would I drink if I was homeless..? For sure. There is fuck all else to do and I probably do not want to break another tooth opening a bottle of Chimnay Bleu.

Also it seems to have made me cough. Seriously, do not buy unless you are homeless or like me and are testing it to warn other people.

Instead, have a Polish Mocjne or Belgian beer

And I do not smoke in case you were wondering...neither has my beer chalise ever been used as an ashtray, until now

Still, I prefer this to Kronenbourg, 4X, Fosters, and some of the other shite UK lagers, as it is stronger and will put me into the higher dimension quicker...

Bright golden color with a moderate amount of activity. Faint foamy white 2 finger, lasting around 5 minutes, with faint lacing. Flavors of sweet grains, roasted corn, noble spices, faint skunk and butter. Light body with a faint finish of syrup and grassy hops. Overall very poorly crafted. Bland, boozy, flat, blah. Feels terribly adjunct.
