The smell is quite unpleasant. It is hard to describe but it is unpleasant in the way cooking gas is. He taste is an order of magnitude less bad but has nothing enjoyable to it either. There is a little flowerish aroma. Just not a nice beer, I will make sure never to try this again.

Very pale yellow colour, no haze and a thin layer of foam. Promising smell of flowers and yeast. The taste doesn't live up to its expectations however. Malt, citric and alcohol, though the latter isn't dominating and complements the others quite well. Quite refreshing for a beer with such a high abv, but a bit too bland as well. Tastes a bit too much like a strong euro lager to me. Not a bad beer, but not an impressive one either.

Sweet bubblegum smell. Makes me worry a bit as it could be boozy now.
Taste is harsh alcohol with malt. Sugary alcohol. It's clear to me this beer isn't flavoured enough to justify the extra abv.
Overall this is like an ordinary strong euro lager taste.
