UPDATED: JAN 20, 2012 Canned. Copper coloured, huge creamy, longlasting head. Malty aroma with hints ofhops. Very smooth palate. Weak taste, mainly of malt and some hints of roast. A bit hoppish aftertaste. Not that special in any way, but you could drink a lot of it...4 5 5 5 12

Canned (to celebrate the 10th anniversary of 2Pac on RateBeer). Deep amber/pale copper colour with a longlasting big creamy slightly off-white head. Aroma is mild sweet maltyness along with some creamy and floral hoppy notes. Flavour is quite similar, with the hops having a bit more of a kick than in the aroma. 5 4 5 3 10.

A very creamy beer. Goes down smooth and pours very nicely. Like a Guiness, you have to wait for it to settle up which is always a neat feature.

From a can, tasted flat and bitter, I had four of them, they all tasted that way, I like bitter, but that was it. It was flat all the way, stay away.

Had from widgetted can. Pours very, very foamy. Creamy head stays and laces well. Dark amber in appearance. Flavour is a bit sharp with slight aftertaste. Not unenjoyable, not too exciting. Could do worse.

A strange experience. Almost no gas at all, must be at least at 5 degrees. Clear and a little dark. Mild but interesting taste, malty. The usual stuff about the foam, creamy and very very persistent. Though is definitly watery and poor, there’s something funky about it. I think this beer is meant to be drunk in tons, and it’s perfect for that. Good enough for a commercial mass made beer.

Commodore (112) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 7, 2005
Draught, so of course a massive creamy white head that never bothered to dissipate. This head was on top of an amber-coloured and clear liquid. Very inoffensive nose and taste. The malts (and I think caramel) came through in the taste, but it wasn’t cloying as some caramelly beers are. Wasn’t a bad ale, but not "an experience" either.

I had this beer on tap at a local pub. Beer has a creamy head that lasted from stat to finish. medium red color. I found this beer to have a very mellow taste and went down very smooth with little after taste

Geiserich (3465) - Linz, AUSTRIA - MAR 1, 2005
Fresh sourly aroma, bronze color. Some malt, light sherry note. Harsh bitter, long dry finish. Boring, unpleasant bitter beer.

Out of the can in Canada this beer isn’t that bad. Creamy head seems to last forever. Little after-taste and a hint of malty flavor. Overall not a bad beer, there are worst things in the world!

highlandlad (1418) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - FEB 17, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2006 Mystifyingly popular Irish ale. Drunk in the UK by people who wish they liked Guinness and don’t know any better. The sample from a can poured an amber colour with an improbable nitrogenated ’widget’ head. The poverty of the aroma hints at the mediocrity ahead. There are subdued toffee notes and some nuts. The canned version has the creamy mouthfeel that is typical of nitro canned ales. It goes a long way to disguise the fact that the beer is insipid. There’s a little malt and a hint of toffee but very little finish. Dull dull dull. (Can with widget)
