pootzboy (1690) - Hopville, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 15, 2006
1/2 liter Euro-can. Poured a crystal clear very light amber-gold beer into my stem glass.2 finger chunky cap that reduces quickly to nothing...,NO lacing of the glass...assertive carbonation ( This is the tip off of a malt/dextrose extract syrup high gravity beer) Aroma: light grains with a very light caramel sweetness soft, stale grassyness. Weak malt spine, watery mouth feel. Light liquid body and semi-harsh character. Starts with caramel sweetness with no detectable hop balance very watery...midway some stale hop additive is detected...fast finish.. sweet, some harshness in after taste... ..probably the least objectionable of the FAXE dextrose extract lagers but this type of high gravity extract-brewed beer always tastes lifeless, stale and too sweet to me. This is the type of crap Steelback makes on this side of the ocean...I see no need to import more from Denmark. .

sheatripper (863) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - AUG 9, 2006
One-liter oil can. Deep amber color with quickly dissolving off-white head. Aroma of malt, honey and leather. Flavor was basically off-sweet malt with some hoppiness but with kind of a chemical or metallic aftertaste. Nothing special except for the big-ass can, which would be handy for a tailgate or train ride.

caledonian (367) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 8, 2006
Can. Light caramel aroma. Very thin feel. Flavor isn’t bad. Better than a North American macro, but otherwise an average brew.

piscator34 (2331) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 5, 2006
Canned sample. Light copper in colour with strong carbonation. Very sweet caramel malt aroma, along with a hit of sulfur. Cloyingly sweet flavors with a bit of peppery hop on the finish. Not much to this one. A poor effort.

Oakes (15490) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 31, 2006
Did this side by side with the old Faxe Amber (1906 Classic). Identical colour of bright golden-amber. Aroma on this one is more alcohol oriented, with sweet caramel. Despite the lighter aroma, the flavour is stronger than its predecessor, mind you not as good. Just a flat, sweet, caramel syrup sort of thing. Sweet, flat finish. Not an improvement.

HenrikSoegaard (13090) - Randers, DENMARK - JUL 30, 2006
Can. Frothy white good mostly deminishing head. Amber colour. OK moderate malty aroma. Week flavor, short finish. Watery palate. Compared to other danish industrial ADL. blå x-mas: much worse.

JohnBarleycorn (537) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 19, 2006
Medium-amber beverage with some dark-gold fading out towards the edges. Unappealing soap-suds head. Mild aromas of cherry, toffee/caramel and sweet malt. Smooth palate enables effortless quaffing. Flavours are rather lifeless, leaving the creamy palate to do most of the pleasing. Average, drinkable stuff.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 13, 2006
From a tall can this light amber coloured beer has an aroma of light malts and lots of corn. Flavour tastes corny as well and rather sweet. Some hops finish out the drink but overall I didn’t care for this one.

freekyp (1910) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - JUL 1, 2006
Clear sparkling amber with a large frothy white head, this brew had very little in the aroma department. Decent malt character with a balanced hop profile, and a lightly tangy finish. Hop bitterness is quick and sharp, but not fruity.

Radek Kliber (7115) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JUN 28, 2006
Can. Amber gold with medium tan head. Sweet candy malt nose with mineral hop character, hints of corn at edges. Medium bodied, smooth with light bitter sweet finish. Light fruity front more of corn character between. Simple beer with out any identity.
