Sweet nose with alcohol, this is the flavor that dominates over others. The body resembles that of a lager but with a disturbing presence alcoholic enough (doing a little thinking of oven cleaners) that adds too much sugar in beer and makes it almost undrinkable. It seems that the brewer added juniper berries but apart from the nauseating combination alcohol / sugar, you do not feel much. Looks like a Strong Czech Pilsener missed but it's actually a high fermentation.
