Poured from a 500 ml can I didn't expect too much from this one to tell you the truth, and so I wasn't disappointed. It pours a deep golden yellow colour with a big, soapy head that goes slow but steadt, leaving no lacing on the glass. Smell is nothing extra-ordinary, malts and hops. Taste is as bitter as any other lager, with the high ABV making clear it's there. Medium thick in body and average carbonation.
Bottom line, an average lager with a high ABV, good if your girlfriend/wife has left you alone for the weekend to visit her mother and you want to catch up with your drunken evenings = get drunk fast.

Strong cheap canned beer. Expecting a spiked lager with harsh alcohol, this wasn't too bad.

Looks not too impressive. Clear golden with a thin head and mild carbonation.
Smells fresh with a bit of citrus and clean malts. Tastes very much like lager: hop, malt, with a bit of spice. The aftertaste is bitter.
Mouthfeel is very thin, again like most lagers. The alcohol is surprizingly mild, it goes down with less burn than I expected.

After a while this beer loses it's few good notes though, and leaves you with a headache... and wanting some tea instead.
