2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Molly Bloom’s in London, Ontario.
Pours a dark body. Red in colour, but it also appears to have a browish colour to it at times. Aroma is nutty, mildly hoppy. taste is watery nuttiness, some sweet malt, and a slight bitterness from hops. Not bad. Creamy and watery at the same time on the finish. Not bad, better than what I expected.

fairly good. I had a full pint and enjoyed it. i tasted only a few bursts of hoppiness once in a while was a little disappointing.

On Tap, pours appealing and tastes nutty and sweeter than the original carlsberg. It is a go to tap if I see it amongst the reds.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy amber red color with a small but good head. Funky slightly malty aroma with a hint of cardboard. Flavour is slightly sweet with a touch of nutty hops and an odd lingering aftertaste. Decent palate for a macro. Was actually halfway enjoyable even if I didn’t really pull out anything much to write about.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at EJs Baden tavern. Tapped a copper-red color with a thin offwhite cap that did not last and went to a lace that stayed the drink. Low effervescence. Aromas of caramel-toffee sweetness. Started a bit thin with lots of sweet tastes and some nuttyness with undetectatable hop accents. Finished thin, sweet and clean. I’m glad I was thirsty (just got off a motorcycle on a humid 95% day)otherwise I may have been tempted to leave this sweet drink on the bar and order a Pilsner.Too sweet for me or for any style of dark lager.

On tap, James St. Feed Co., Ottawa. No mistaking this for anything other than Calrsberg, it just has that taste, although I must say the red bodied appearance looks fantastic. A slightly more malty taste, as you would expect in the colour, but it is still rather thin and not all that exciting.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JAN 31, 2004 My first actual draught beer. Having it again at the same bar was quite something, I can tell you. Beautiful, deep rich red colour, and a head to die for, only the taste seemed a lot less than I had remembered. Malty, and slightly bitter. This one beer made me swear to be a dark-lover all my days.

Just an average brew . The thing that sets it apart from others is that this packs a bit of a punch. If you're looking to get drunk here is one to try.

Hey, it's drinkable, but nothing really special... I was truly surprised to discover it at my local Kroger, though!
