Big disappointment. A friend remarked ítastes like fried oystersí which helps describe how odd this tasted. Not worth its price, though my review makes it sound worse than it is.

Itís too bad that other countries have to make íAmerican Standardí beers in order to appeal to an American market. This is fairly typical, and Iíd choose it over most of the American-brewed versions. I donít care for the style, though, because itís watery and flat and boring.

A beer that cannot stand alone, but works great in a half & half. Fizzy with flat bitterness.

Ernest (6603) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 4, 2002
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain), moderately hoppy (flowers), lightly yeasty (dough). Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately bitter. Finish is moderately bitter, slightly metallic, slightly unclean. Medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation. Over carbonated and not very clean.

A good standard beer. Although not extraordinary in any way, it has no noticeable detractions either. Certainly has an enjoyable crispness and a smooth finish with maybe feint fruity/hoppy touch.

I somehow forgot to rate this beer a long time ago. This is probably the best of its kind...just not my style though. It is crisp and smooth, with a decent flavor. No skunkiness like many American Standards.

Not much to speak of in Aroma and Appearance. It makes up for it flavor and palate though. Kick it a point or two extra for being the beer that turned me on to beer (the first beer I truly loved). RE-RATE: I tried this yet again, and I canít give this beer a 3.7. Itís got too much of a bitter aftertaste.
