1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Well what can I say. I was told this was very bad but I did not think it could be worse than the Labatt’s Shok. I was wrong. Poured with a small head that disapeared quickly. Light ginger in color. Some what sweet in smell but lacking in taste.

1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
2L bottle smuggled across the Provincial border by an unamed soucre. This is NOT an amber ale in this incarnation. To repeat Fiend, since I said it and he wrote it "a pale ginger-ale like brew" with a sticky white foamy head on top. A strong sweet aroma wafts from across my desk. Taking the dare I bring the glass closer. Upon closer inspection the aroma is indeed sweet but with a baby malt liquor alcohol trace. An amazing beer. How do they make it taste like nothing and still give it that lingering malt liquor finish without the malt liquor high alcohol.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
A strong aroma was present from the foamy white head. The head dissappeared almost immediatly although the gingerale-looking brew stayed reasonably carbonated throughout the glass. A hint of hops was present but the beer was definately lacking something in its flavor.

1.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
(Draught) Medium, white frothy head and a mildly carbonated, weak yellow body. Served way too cold. Nail polish nose with mango juice undertones. Watery and fruity. lactic and astringent. Poor offering.
