Canned. Not bad. It's a bitter so that's what it tasted like. Creamy flavor.

CLear orange amber hue. Obviously creamy thick head. Light apple juice nose. Thin bodied, kinda crappy...It would be much better if they threw it in a cask....

A classic from Doomsday brewery. Beautiful deep copper color with fine medium thick head. Fruity and hoppy/spicy aroma. Pleasantly caramelly and fruity, loaded with aromatic bitter hops in the finish. Greene King rules!

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: AUG 8, 2003 From a can, beer pours (in Hoegaarden glass) a buttermilk-beige liquid falling away to a medium orange-golden with near-white, thick, creamy head that lingers. Aroma is of buttermilk malt, straw, grass. Flavor is of mild hops and malt with a slight bitter ending. Beer is not effervecent and the consistency is like water. Best looking head I ever seen. Flavor could use some work, like getting rid of the hops. Sampled at 71 degrees Fahrenheit.

I'm not a big fan of this style, but this beer is good: Amber colour, good head; orange, almonds and nuts in the aroma. Th flvour is fruity, with ornage, tangerine and citrus traces. the finish is quite bitter.

Golden orange colour. Orangish head. Sweet aroma somewhat spicey in the aroma... odd. Slight spice... light hop but strong in the taste. Summer sausage... nice

"Draught" Can. Expansive head fills glass and separates to my visual delight. Extremely creamy, but not too sticky or thick; white head remains for duration. Beer is semi-cloudy pale amber. Faint grainy aroma. Silky mouthfeel with no discernible carbonation; could be because it's so creamy? Yeasty flavor in mouth. Mild bite in aftertaste. In two words: Creamy Smooth.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 11, 2005 Man if this is this good in the bottle overseas, I cant even imagine it on cask.
Faint aroma of hops, and some malt, small white frothy head, orange and brown intermingled with some red streaks.
Opens up full and malty, with some fruit tones making their way in quickly. . cherry, peach, maybe a tiny bit of orange. There is a brief glimpse of hops(very brief) and something more than that, a sugary yet spicy flavor that I cant name(very fleeting, maybe apple blossom?). Finishes fairly even, though there is a bit of bubbliness in the bottle, that Im sure is taken care of on cask. Beer is full bodied and not overly bitter for a biiter, though there is a some bitterness as it ends. The body is full and flavorful, but mainly tastes of caramel notes, and the complexity does not stand up to the likes of Ipswich, Fullers, or Crooked River. A very solid beer nonetheless.

Very creamy, slightly bitter. Nice foamy head. I didn't like it a lot, but it was alright.

(Bottled)Amber colored with a small head. Good aroma of butter, nuts with some fruity acidity. The taste was like: Yuick!! Very watery and skunked, weak notes of butter acid. There you go, pour out in the drain.
