Mettalic bottle. Wow. Well, I give it a few points for trying. Really anise flavour in beer is not a good combo.

shintriad (700) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 28, 2007
Bottle. It is indeed mysterious with its strong minty, herbal flavour, mixed with a slight malty sweetness and the dryness of its high alcohol content. Fizzy body and a strange off flavour or two. Interesting, but not my regular shtick.

robinvboyer (3080) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 19, 2007
bottle at somkeless joeís yellow lager, small white head, smells kinda malty but the absinthe aroma is there. Actually smells kinda salty. and the absinthe is veering more on the size of an aroma of Zambuca. flavour is thin, and wattery, not very good.

02.12.05 - rating #997 - countdown for #1000! The bottle is quite fancy, and was part of the reason I bought it :)) The color is golden and the head is small. the aroma has hops, anise and perhaps a bit of ginger? The flavour is spicy and has notes of anise, pepper and again I am not sure whether itís ginger? A very different beer indeed, but Ok in itís own fun way.

Lubiere (9877) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 27, 2007
A lightly hazed golden ale with a thin creamy white head. A spicey lemony aroma, orange peels and light licorice. In mouth, a sweet malt with peppery notes, overlayed by strong lemony overtones. Overall, its their decent Biere de Garde, enhanced by the addition of absithe, giving an unhappy marriage. Bottle from Piscator in Winnipeg. BB 03-07.

MrManning (2003) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 30, 2006
Bottle- Notes from 09/25/06- Bottle at Chaucerís. Itís sparkling and gold with a 1/4 finger white ring. Weird spicy aroma. Like cirtus with weirdo malts and pepper. It does have a bit of anise-seed flavour, some lime skin, and some bittering hops. Pretty boozey, Iíd say 10% as opposed to the 7.5. This beer is absolutely unecessary.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 28, 2006
Lime and sugar aroma, amber, pours a tiny, short-lived white head, leaves a bit of lace. Tastes like water with a very small hint of lime. Thin, uncarbonated, grainy. An un-refreshing soda.

piscator34 (1960) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 17, 2006
Gold in colour, with medium carbonation. Aromas of black licorice and allspice, with a bit of light malt in the background. More of the same in the mouth, but with a kind of a poorly made strong lager component (estery in a bad way). Heavy bodied as well, which seems quite out of place. This is not a good beer at all, but itís more bizzare than disgusting.

Tin bottle, shared with Greg, Harry, and Paul, thanks R. Yellow, no head. Fruity, citrus and floral aroma - the best part of this beer. Taste is harsh, metallic, medicine like. Alcohol as well. Short harsh finish. Nice try.
