2.26/5  rDev -16.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2

Pours deep gold with an ample white head that leaves a smattering of lace on the glass. The aroma is sweet and simple. Some booze is noticeable and some cracker malts. The taste is malty with some vegetal hints and a good dose of alcohol heat. Hop bitterness is noticeable but not prominent enough. The mouthfeel is on the verge of cloying from the sweetness. The finish is numbingly alcoholic and mildly bitter.

This is an OK super strong lager. Its not undrinkable but the sweetness, booziness and vegetal flavors make it almost so.

A bit of head on a light colour. A bit of malt in aroma, the alcohol is not noticeable. Not much in taste, but also not offensive, a tad metallic and malt, no sign of hop. Light mouthfeel. Drinkable and a find for a new European can without writeup.Better with some snack.
