Clear sparkling copper body topped by a forthed milk head that collapses quickly but leaves a nice bit of lace behind. The aroma is quite citrusy, light lemon, lots of orange. The flavor is lighly bready, medium citrus hoppy and medium bitter. Medium dry body. Pretty quenching.

(bottle) Lovely deep golden colour, although head doesn’t amount to much...not the end of the world...good full hoppy aroma. Palate is medium to full, well balanced malt & hops with a reasonable finish. A good bottle-conditioned beer, available at good Victoria Wine branches...ask the manager to get it in!!!!

henry3r (586) - Wichita, Kansas, USA - JAN 24, 2005
Pours a crystal clear light copper color with a medium bubbly white head. The head is short-lived but leaves enough around the edge of the glass to create some lacing. There is moderate hop aroma with notes of sweet and dried fruit. Astringent mouth feel. Initial dry hoppy flavor fades rapidly on the palate. Leaves a slightly bitter aftertaste.

Good choice in a bar setting...when nothing else decent is available. This is way too watered-down for my taste. Goose-guys are obviously dumbing this one down for the masses. Try their Demolition Ale instead, and you’ll see what I mean.

Brodie (540) - Blowing Rock, North Carolina, USA - JAN 13, 2005
Interesting fruity aroma, dried apricots jump out in particular, with a hint of herbal hops. Clear copper color, thin white head. Flavor is unique, tea-like hops, a hint of smoke, sweet caramel, and those dried apricots again. Medium body, dry finish. Not a big fan.

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - JAN 13, 2005
Pours clear dark orange with a tall foamy off-white head. Mild in the aroma, hop and fruit with herby hints. Flavor is sweet fruity at first with some hoppy bitterness setting in. Fresh taste but thin bodied and not the most interesting.

erway (1004) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - JAN 12, 2005
pours a med. amber w/ a small frothy head. Huge malty nose w/ some esters.Some grassiness from EKG. Very bready with a fair bitterness. Not much hop flavor. Clean ferment. A good amber.

Cdog (32) - Farmington, Michigan, USA - JAN 2, 2005
A good everyday beer. Nice carmel/light amber color and a good lasting head. It might be a little hoppy for people how drink Bud and other light american beers, but I am a bit of a hophead.

IndianaRed (2536) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 30, 2004
Bottle Pours a clear medium amber/brown with an average off-white head that has real lasting power. Nice thick lacing too. Aromas are grassy, woody and fairly sweet. Flavor is somewhat biter like an ESP but not darker and fuller than just a strong hops bite. Feel is a bit thin and the carbonation is average.. Drinkable butr not special. Thanks to MrFacto for this one.
