2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Decent rich brown amber pour, with copious white head and great lacing. Absolutely watery and lacking any true depth, hardly any flavor.

Draught. A brown coloured beer with a creamy head. I cannot discern any taste at all other than water. It’s not nasty just bland, bland, bland.

UPDATED: MAR 13, 2005 I thought this was a wonderful beer with little after-taste. We buy it in cans at our stores here in Canada. It is 2.25$ a pint. I find it smooth and great with food. Cheers

The Draught flow can should have pre-warned me of the ’beer’ inside (re: Kilkenny & Guinness Draught). Poured as expected, an auburn gold with a thick nitrogen assisted off-white head. Aroma began with burnt toast, sump oil and marmite, but didn’t hang around long. Tasted (if you try hard) of grain husks, sour cream, dank liquor and a little roasted malt. Very creamy, flatly smooth and completely boring, this is another attempt to make decent beer drinkers look like twats with beer that is not beer!!!

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Basically the only thing there was to drink at misic venue called The Garage. On cream flow nitro keg.
I could swear this was watered down. Very little taste & no alcohol "hit" at all, even thougb it’s supposed to be 4%.
Ohhh yeah & served way too cold too, then again that could be to mask any taste it does have

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear amber/copper coloured body with a perfect frothy tan (widget/nitrogenated) head. Aroma of pale malt, caramel, light english hops, some apples & cardboard. Light/medium bodied; Velvety texture to boot. Appley taste with some bitter malt noticeable up front. Mild hop flavour-fairly negligable. Aftertaste clean and fresh. Some malt bitterness-no sweetness nor alcohol tastes. Overall, a mild and underpowering bitter. Not horrible, but not impressive in the slightest bit. I sampled this 440 mL can purchased at the LCBO on Queen’s Quay in Toronto, Ontario on 16-October-2004 on the Eastern Shore of Virginia.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Canned - 440ml. Dark amber body topped with a dense creamy head. Good malty/hoppy aroma with light caramel and herbal hints. After a good bitter attack (with wooden and roasted coffee notes), the lack of punch and lenght of the finish makes the mouthfeel a bit disappointing. The beer in itself is OK. But as a Bitter, it is weak.
