3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
An interesting - but strong - beer. To my mind its a very pleasant "burnt malt" taste. Dark brown verging on black with little head, but a very full flavour. Body is more largerish, but plenty of punch. LBC is a 50% state owned 50% Carlsberg jv.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a bright amber with a thick off white head...really nice lacing and retention. Aroma has sweet maltiness and a dry mapley/leafy note. Flavor follows suit but is a bit stale and metallic. Mouthfeel is full and silky and the finish is dry and earthy/sweet malty. This is actually very close to being very good!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is fruity and a bit fruit-sweet with a malty undertone. Pours a slightly hazy cinnamon- brown with a decent cream-colored head. Flavor is crisp, malty, slightly yeasty and just a little fruity with just a tiny bit of sweetness. Texture is rather smooth and fizzy, rather typical. Worth a try.

Bottle @ home, thanks vjl! Aroma is roasty malt, nutty, caramel. Very much like when steeping.
Flavour is roasty malty, roasty clings on a bit.
Pretty good considering.

Bottled. Mild aroma, lightly grainy. Very clean. Decent body, only a touch of sweetness. No real off notes. A touch of chocolate. Not particularly flavorful, but very easy drinking.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a three finger cream head that fades quickly to a thin layer, leaving some lace. Nice crystal clear amber color. Mystery bits in bottom of glass that may or may not be yeast. Light carbonation and medium bodied. Faint malty nose. Flavor reminds me of honey cough syrup. Far better than their Lager. $1.85 for a 330ml bottle from Colonial Spirits Acton, Ma.

Bottle. Pours a clear dark mahogany brown with a thin to medium sized beige head. Toast and a touch of roasted malt on the nose. Gentle malt and a touch of roast. Slightly nutty, toast, more malt. Finishes with a slight sweetness and roasty malt. Decent and easy drinking. Pleasantly surprised.

Bottle at home. Clear dark brown pour, thin off-white head. Aroma is slightly roasty, some sugary malts, molasses and licorice. Flavor is slightly bitter, slightly sweet, quite roasty and a bit bready. Overall quite nice.
