Time to review the third member of the Grafenwalder family, all in one night! As I wrote on my other two reviews, this is made for the Lidl supermarkets.
So, can of 500 ml. Maybe a tone darker golden yellow than the Grafenwalder Pils, two finger white, soapy head that quite fast was dissolved into a half a finger, quite a few bubbles rising to the surface.On the aroma mostly malts, I can't really conceive any of the high alcohol smell. It's not in the taste either, slighty bitter with a touch of metal, but not that pinch on the tip of the tongue from the 7.9 ABV. Oh, there it is, on the back of the tongue, once you swallow it. Just earned one more point from that. On the palate, medium thickness, bit oily and leaves some dryness in your mouth behind. Overall, above than average.

The beer color is pale yellow with a nice sticky white foamy head on top of it. The aroma is light in intensity... but I get mainly malts... not even any hops trace in this. In the nose, I get the high ABV (7.9% as the can says). In the mouth, this is typical lager beer... strong lager so the alcohol is present and also a good amount of malts. The alcohol warms the body so it is quite good to drink this one during winter. Pretty simple beer if you ask me. Average beer. Good drinking beer... nothing out of this world.

Dark yellow, almost transparent. Strong enough for a sparkling lager. Nose of slight maturation, alcohol and malt in abundance. Malty taste with spice still quite strong. Hops away. Unpleasant taste of sausage and cold cuts.

Slightly spicy finish but is far from persistent or even just tasty.
