    Pours clear copper with a thick, though not long-lasting, cream head. Aroma presents crisp malt and - ewww, wet dog. Flavor yields fresh malt and a little sweet pomme - the wet dog is gone, but it is a bit skunky - plus an undertone of bitter hops. Mouthfeel features so-so body and fizz. Well, I had to try it.

    this poured a clear yellow in color with white foam head. Aroma of regular beer. Taste was average with nothing to note as special. alcohol content is high so it packs a wallop.

    Clear yellow with white foam head. Aroma of regular pilsener, so is taste. Nice beer for holiday and to add on the list of Danish beers. (Kalmar 201307)

    Pours a dark golden color. Smell is of light grains, some malts. Taste is grains, alcohol, not very pleasant. Overall I was unimpressed, a below average beer.

    pours a light straw colour with a thin white head that leaves minimal lacing. The aroma is of corn and lager hops along with some citrus and a generally sweet aroma. The overall aroma is a crisp and clean. The taste is of lager malts and hops along with some mild citrus and some malts. There is a fair amount of alcohol along with a spicy finish. The mouthfeel is smooth but rounded off with a crisp and slightly bitter finish. Carbonation is medium.

    A golden colored beer. Big fluffy textured white head rises above. A decent hang time settling into an impressive lacing of soapy film on the sides of the glass and ringlet atop the body. Sweet, nearly skunky grain in the nose. Sweet grain, phenols contributes to the skunkiness. Light notes of grass. Medium bodied and creamy. Despite that positive aspect, the tasting is not very good, but what did I expect.

    Well, it's not hateful. Tastes a lot like old-school Heinken. It's definently a maly-liquor type taste and certainly a Euro-brew. It's a rather skunky aroma and tastes of grain. I'd have never bought the stuff myself, but someone offered and well, you know the rest...

    For a Euro malt liquor, it's really pretty nice. I recall a time when this was consumed fairly regularly in my earlier drinking years, and I thought I was shittin' in tall cotton because it was "imported". Heh...man I was dumb.

    So I get this beer to relive old times and watch the Lakers lose to the Nuggets (w00t!), along with a few other oldies. The beer pours out a nice yellow-gold color, slightly darker than most malt liquors with a nice white head. Aroma is slightly skunked, sweet with a touch of grain/corn. Flavor is grainy, yeasty with a bit of sweetness too. Alcohol is pretty well hidden, until it gets warm. Then all hell breaks loose. Drink it before it gets warm.

    I've tried this beer a few times, and still not sure what to think about it. The alcohol is pretty prevalent to me for a 7% beer. It comes out a clear gold colour with a white head. The aroma is alcohol with malt. The flavour is alcohol with malt. This is a heavy beer.

    a very clean drinkable brew, backed up by a decent alcohol by volume. nothing less, nothing more. slightly better than what i was expecting, but i won't buy again
