better than their stuff in the green bottle, nothing impressive about it.

Umm, well, can’t say they totally failed for trying. It’s an okay dark beer, but not what I expected.

I wanted #100 to be special, but since I have tried just about everything I can get my hands on around here, I had to settle for this. Not bad at all. Right up there with Becks Dark as far as your mainstream darks go.

Aubrey (3509) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - FEB 25, 2002
Huge head; tight bubbles... clear mahogany-red. Very smooth and easy to drink. I suppose they’re after an ’American Brown’ with this attempt? Had a woodsy/burnt, slightly sweet flavor that wasn’t too bad. Left the mouth dry, fairly clean aftertaste. Not too bad; and actually, I was expecting something less.

Taste was ok...looks like a dark, smells like a dark taste like bark...not sure what the problem is with their QC.

Aurelius (4999) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 30, 2002
Sweet and clean. Hops only kick in towards the end. Decent macrobrew.

Metallic nose from the bottle and glass. Slight malted chocolate aroma. Clean lager front. Change of malted flavors midway. Finish ended slightly sweet throughout. Easy to drink, light session brew.

Brian (145) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 16, 2002
Not great, but better than Beck’s Dark. Not much else to be said, really. Still weak for a dark beer, but at least some of the roasted flavor comes through. I’m surprised I liked it, considering how much I dislike regular Heineken.

TheRimmer (483) - Florida, USA - JAN 7, 2002
blah. Just.....blah. I emailed heineken asking them who stole the good flavors out of their beer. Well, not really, but someone should. someone should also slap the crack pipe out of whoever’s idea this was. Mediocre at best.
