This brew pours a transparent deep gold with a small white head. Aroma had a light malt smell to it with some straw notes and some light floral hopping. This brew was lightly fruity with a medium bitterness, grainy texture, and just a faint alcohol note. This brew had a very dry finish.

50 cL glass bottle. Practically no carbonation and consquently no head (colour is light yellow with a tinge of green). Aroma of wet hay and alchohol; the same components in the flavour together with a taste of soap! Really awful. The bottle I had may not have been properly sealed, but I am not willing to give it another try.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 27, 2004
Pale yellow. No head really or lace. Light grassy hops and a touch of malts. The flavor is very light. The hops stand out a bit more than the malts, but that’s barely at all. Thin bodied and a watery palate. Eh, nothing to get excited about.

burcusabrews (106) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - NOV 4, 2004
Light yellow with a trace white head. Nose of apricot and unmalted wheat. Sweet upfront which lingers without much flaovr. a bit sour, but well balanced for its strength.

Pailhead (4897) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - OCT 18, 2004
Bottle: Aroma is a little weak. Weak hop and skunk aroma. Pours a very pale slightly hazy yellow with a white head that has decent retention. Flavor is rather malty. Much more than I expected. Slightly skunky. Not much bitterness. Can’t detect the alcohol at all. Alcohol becomes much more noticealbe as it warms. Nothing real special about this beer, but it’s not as bad as I was expecting.

Not much taste. A bit chemical. too much alcohol.

Jine (896) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - OCT 2, 2004
Bottle. Malt Liquory. Rugged. Not that bad at all. Russian high octane drunk fuel. Better than other malt liquors

Hugerat (452) - somerville, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 21, 2004
Not too bad, though I had expected something really terrible. Tastes a bit like Budweiser but with a slightly richer mouthfeel and more hopping.

Trappist (284) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 20, 2004
I did not feel that it was too bad of an ale. Big Bastard is correct about it being similar to an American standard, but the powerful alcohol flavor proves otherwise. It is sweet and warms your stomach upon each sip. The Alcohol was also noted in the aroma as soon as I cracked the bottle open. If these traits could have been hidden better or just made somewhat smoother, this would be an alright brew.

BigBastard (668) - L.A., California, USA - SEP 13, 2004
Not as bad as I expected. Tasted like an AMerican standard, with a slightly sweet/alcohol flavor in there too.
