got a lot more flavor than most lagers, but the aftertaste is a bit strong. expensive and not my favorite, but not a bad beer either.

UPDATED: MAY 21, 2003 completely different beer than when I used to drink it. Apparently its now brewed in Canada. Not nearly as good as it was when they brewed it in dundalk.

Had one of these on tap at the Old Bag of Nails in Grandview. This brew pours a clear golden. The average creamy white head is mostly diminishing with good lacing. The fruity nose has hints of flowers and perfume, along with caramel. The light crisp flavor is mostly sweet, and finishes with a nutty astringent bitterness. The smooth light creamy palate has soft carbonation. Bland, but still above average.

Nice appearance but the head retention was low. Decent palate, but I would have liked it to last a little longer in my mouth. Overall very little taste, and very unimpressive, especially for the price.

Very foamy, pure white head. Good mouth-feel. Clean, slightly sharp initial taste, with an enjoyable, but short finish.

Has a chemical flavour to it making for a very odd tasting drink. I doubt I will be having this beer again, but may be I will as it does improve the more you have.

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.

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.
