Golden color with a really nice white head. The taste is fruits, yeast and a nice hoppy palate.

MrRomero (1974) - Nolanville, USA - NOV 12, 2003
On Tap in Brugges. Pours a deep yellow with a thick white head. Nice lacing. Aroma is light hops. It's refreshing with a mild hoppy flavor and hints of banana.

jonas (5599) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - NOV 2, 2003
Spicy and maltish aroma. Dark golden, lowish head. Malt, spices, some alcohol and esters noticable. Lightbodied. Somewhat boring.

dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - OCT 24, 2003
Clear, golden. Thick, white, lacey head. Lager taste with hints of yeastiness, sweetness and a bit of fruitiness. Hoppy finish. Quite okay.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 7, 2003
On tap. Bready aroma, amber, with a small white head. Very distinctive candied malt/hops combination. Fine example!

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 19, 2003
Golden with a thick frothy head. Unclean yeasty and fruity aroma. Yeasty and slightly sour flavour with hints of vegetables, banana and vanilla. Very hard to drink. Almost avarage.

nigos (631) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2003
Orange and yeasty nose. Bright amber hue with a big white head. Orange and yeast flavours with nutty earthy tones. Good but not the best of its type.

Boystout (1000) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - AUG 26, 2003
Pale yellow color and respectable head, vegetal aroma with hints of mayonnaise. Ordinary sweet malty palate with plastic/leather notes. Nothing special.

JorisPPattyn (7816) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - AUG 12, 2003
Yellow-golden beer, clear; thick head, fast gone but lacey. Hoppy, herbal nose. Vaguely crystal malt. Sweet, candi sugar taste. Sweetness fades, lots of malts remain. Again corn syrup? Dry mouthfeel, carbonation gives a mineral water effect. Reasonably refreshing. A bit bland, but not necessarily bad beer. Unexciting.

BroueNeault (158) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 8, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2003 From a 50 cl can. Well, I think this was a good one. Clear golden colour and a thick head. Very pleasant aroma of yeast, fruit and caramel. The taste is less interesting, but still good with hints of yeast and hop.
