Label info: ‘The hottest beer in the world’ 

What the label really means: Ok…great…I see what you rock gods are going for here. Playing it cool. I read ya. 

The Hell-Cat review starts here

Label: This is glarey, flamboyant, over the top and decidedly 1970s in style. Everything that the rock band KISS epitomises. I like the fact that it is instantly recognised as a KISS branded item, but is it a little marketing-ploy schmultzy? Come on, how many other bands release their own beer? (Stay tuned for word on You Am I’s brew out soon). I do like the dual two-tone colour arrangement here that reflects the KISS make-up patterns so well. What I don’t like is that awesome KISS album art hasn’t been used to create an even rockier brew. I just think more work could have gone into this one.

I give it a label rating of 6 out of 10.

AROMA:  A meaty, hop-heavy brew.

Taste: GLASS – This surprisingly is a very flavoursome all-mouth brew that hits with a great punch to the smacker. It’s refreshing with a back of mouth bitterness. It prances very cleverly on the edge of being pilsener in flavour and then sort of backs off a bit to be a bit more subtle. I’m glad to say that this is a beer KISS should be proud to have their name attached to. It’s not an amazingly complex beer by any means, but it is definitely enjoyable. I’m claiming this as the demented love-child of Becks and Pilsner Urquell.KISS Destroyer - GLASS

I give it a beer from glass rating of 7.5 out of 10.

Taste: BOTTLE – From the bottle, KISS Destroyer hits with a similar level of enthusiasm but just falls short of the mark. Still good but not great. 

I give it a taste from bottle rating of 7 out of 10.

Accompanying food: Red meat…beef preferably.

Best season to appreciate: I’d suggest this is destined for outdoor Summer music festivals.

All-nighter beer? Yes I could definitely drink this all night…and party ever-eey night.

NEXT WEEK: TBC

    Sixers of this stuff went for a lobster when it first haunted beer shelves. Now, you can get ’em for less than a Bo Derek. I like a beer that depreciates in value. Nine out of ten…hic
