2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Nothing interesting, a beer that is supposed to be awessome, but it is just another bitter boring beer. Good foam.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bland and boring. Nice white head and a pretty golden/amber colour. No hints of hoppyness anywhere though, slightly malty, but generally watery and sweet (artificially)

UPDATED: JAN 31, 2006 Oddly enough, the canned version of this had more flavour than the cask version (a first in my experience). Canned, this appears a deep amber orange with a generous foamy tan head that forms funky shapes as it sits, like a bowl full of whipped potatoes. Bready and slightly caramel aromas, the palate delivers the same but with more caramel showing through. Modestly bitter. Nice.

Smooth bitter, pulls with a thick creamy head. Plenty of malt, little bit of hops. Not much to be said, average mass-produced beer.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Can 50 cl) Amber coloured with a handsome head created by the nitrogen released from the widgety thing in the can. The nitrogen also creates the flat mouthfeel. Very mild and smooth without much aroma or bitterness. But pleasant and highly drinkable. 081002
