UPDATED: APR 13, 2005 A very unassuming beer. Creamy nitro texture. Really no character at all. Itís just sort of there.

This is a little too weak for me, but not too bad. Has a very nice aroma.

A rather boring beer. I tried this ale once in a local tavern & wasnít very impressed at the time and thought that maybe there was something wrong with how it was served or stored. Some months later, I bought a 4-pack of 1-pint cans at a local supermarket and hoped that maybe Iíd experience a more livelier taste. Unfortunately, I was not too impressed by this ale and I probably wonít be buying any more of it in the future.

UPDATED: SEP 26, 2004 Some of the smoothest stuff you can pour from a can. Perhaps not too much character, but I like it anyhow. Easily accessible even in Norway, a lot better than most of the stuff we get here.

Just average. A friend and I checked out Fadoís in Atlanta and this was the only thing on tap I hadnít tried before. I finished the glass, but donít think Iíll ever go for it again.

UPDATED: MAY 2, 2011 Boring nitro keg bitter, ultra smooth but tasting of next to nothing. It looks cool, Iíll give it that.

A friend of mine suggested we split a 4 pack of this one night. It was terrible. It tasted as if I had opened it, put it in the fridge and went back the next night to drink it. Would not buy this again or accept it as a gift.

cathcacr (636) - Oregon, USA - MAR 18, 2002
Hoping to try a good new brew, I tried this out on tap at the ípubí and was quite disappointed. Quite mediocre (average to below average), is my overall impression. Most disappointing, perhaps, was the empty character in the taste and palate. Wasnít bad or repulsive, I mean there was some taste to it, but it was just . . . empty. I doubt that Iíll lay down money for this one again. What am I missing that many others here seem to be getting? I donít get it.

Definitely better from the tap. Good balance.
