(Nitro Can) Penultimate of by brother's birthday present. Copper/amber, deep colour, fake nitro head. Roasted malt, slightly spicy hop flavour. Very soft and tends on the watery side, although the flavours are well rounded, I suspect the widget (damn that thing) ruins most of whatever character was in here. But drinkable, yes. Thanks bro!

Draught version. Pours a red colour with a slow rising creamy head. Aroma is slightly nitogened. Taste is somewhat sweet, flat and malty. A bit flat for my taste but the smooth finish is nicely bittered.

fiulijn (14328) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 5, 2003
Draught. Red color, typical creamy head. Some nitrogen aroma. Not impressive, but at least smooth, a bit malty, with a correct balance of bitterness at the end. Lightmalt smoothness is the most evident feature.

Boystout (1000) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - MAR 2, 2003
Draught version is very impressive: great copper color, big head, hints of sourness and light hops in the taste.

Deep brown color and a nice head give this beer a great appearance. Has a nutty palate, but the finish is very short. Very smooth. Tried this on draught in Dublin- good stuff.

One of my favorite beers when I was in Dublin, but here in the states its not that great. Sweet aroma beautiful cascade with a smooth slightly bitter taste.

While in the town of Kilkenny, Ireland, I decided to try a pint of Kilkenny Irish Beer. It was extremely smooth and drinkable, but I could scarcely tell it apart from its sibling brew, Smithwicks Ale. Slight bitterness, perhaps, but otherwise very mild and lo-alcohol.

Ungstrup (29107) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 12, 2003
A dark amber beer with a very fine head. The aroma is slight primarily sweet. The flavor is acidic at first but very soft with a good sweetness and a slight bitterness. A beer with a very good balance.

Bronstein (175) - Göttingen, GERMANY - FEB 7, 2003
Copper red color, little rapidly diminishing head. Nice aroma with roasted malt and a hint of fruits. Starts slightly fruity and continues drier. Bitter finish. Dry fruity and slightly bitter aftertaste which is pretty persistent. Overall pretty flat impression for an ale.

OKBeer (1170) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - FEB 6, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2003 I'm a bit disappointed with this one. It has a nice, kind of spicy aroma, a good creamy head, and a nice clear amber/brown colour. But it tastes too watery and the bitter aftertaste doesn't help.
