500 ml can, bought at Aldi, really cheap. Poured into a lager glass. Colour is deep golden, with lots of activity in the glass. One finger of white head, kind of soapy, kind of froathy at the same time. Average retention. No lacing left behind, on the glass.
Very malty smell, grass and hay. The high ABV is not traceable at all on the aroma, it could pass for a regular lager.
Very sweet on the taste, the alcohol once again not traceable. I expected it to taste like hell, but it's not that bad after all. Grapes and apples on the flavour. Reminds me of hard cider.
Thin to medium body, average carbonation.
For what it is made for, which is to give you a buzz as fast as possible, while being cheap, it does a great job. As I wrote, the alcohol is very well hidden so if you don't drink it with cautioness, you are up to a big hangover.

2.56/5  rDev -10.5%

Supermarket beer in a 0.5 liter can.
Looks golden with white, quickly disappearing, head, hardly any carbonation in this one.
Malty , even syruppy, sweet and boozy in both aroma and taste, only very little bit of grassy hops. Not much else.
Feels pretty ok, it's not harsh alcohol, and it is warming. Not really a bitter aftertaste either.
Overall it's an ok drink in this category.
