KingGambrinus (117) - Santiago, CHILE - AUG 16, 2008
Clear amber colour with a small but lasting head. Aroma of fruits, caramel malts, grains, and flowery. Malty flavor, sweet, and medium bitterness. Medium body, not watery at all (except by the finish). Well rounded and refreshing, very surprising beer.

Not much aroma, thin, and watery. It was quite drinkable, my girlfriend drank most of the one I had. Not a big loss that she did either.

This was a decent brew. Pours a copper amber with a nice head. Lots and lots of roasted malts to this one. Finishes smooth. Not much hop character to it though. However, it is pretty drinkable, has good flavor to it, and isnt too expensive. Worth a try.

hero12 (180) - Minnesota, USA - JUL 13, 2008
Poured a thin head that disapeared quickly. Aroma wasn’t great, a little skunky. Tasted as watery as the lager, but the aroma and palate were better as it was a little smoother.

From a bottle poured a light amber color with a fair amount of head. Kind of a watery beer taste.

This is an ok beer that you can find in mass quantities, worth a try if you like amber ales.

Heathen (1458) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 23, 2008
THOUGHTS: Not much to this beer. Nice and malty, but nothing special. It might have been a little better, if not for the slight skunkiness from the clear bottle. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a clear, medium amber with an average-sized, off-white head that mostly diminished. The aroma was moderate grain and caramel malts and light to moderate grassy hops. The initial flavor was lightly sweet and light to moderately acidic; while the finish was moderately sweet, sour and light to moderately bitter for a second with a short to average duration. There was caramel malt then a little grassy hops. The light to medium body was sort of watery with fizzy carbonation and a lightly astringent and slightly metallic finish.

Well, it’s a bit like a Newcastle with a hoppier finish. The palate is caramel and brown sugar, with the aforementioned hops coming in toward the end. Not bad, but nothing to go out of your way over. Beats the hell out of Grolsch lager though!

Dragonblaze99 (354) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2008
Golden colour, good white head. An average crispy lager, but there is nothing to get excited about either. Would go well with spicy food, as it would not distract from the flavours.

alafito (334) - tijuana, MEXICO - JUN 10, 2008
Kinda soda pop like. With a semi-real, semi-artificial taste to it. Some caramel and roastiness to it. Refreshing, but nothing much to it i guess.
