Nice dark amber body topped with a thick and long-lasting white creamy head. Light malty aroma. Hoppy bittersweet flavor. Very smooth and refreshing. A classic.

Nate (3778) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 12, 2004
Widget can, 4.3%. Lighty nutty malt aroma, with bit of brown sugar, coffee, grass, caramel, and milk notes. Coppery brown clear with thick creamy off-white lacing head. Medium watery body with light carbonation - smooth. Starts with muted sweetnes and acidity. Nice malt taste, bit of brown sugar or iced tea. Finishes clean with low acidity and muted bitterness. After is a bit nutty and lightly bitter. Very smooth and drinkable.

Steady creamy Guinness-like head. Color is dark amber. Aroma is bittersweet malty, not very strong. Mouthfeel is creamy and smooth but more watery than Guinness. Hops are very present giving average bitter aftertaste, which is the best thing with head in this megabrand. This used to be my favourite draught beer, so some sympathy points before possible draught re-rate :)

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 2, 2004
Had this on tap at REBEL'S ROCK IRISH PUB in, Hamilton, Ontario. Poured a thick and creamy amber head, that rates high on my "best heads" list. Aromas were weak though, slight fruity aromas, and some malt in there as well, though barely noticable. Taste was watery and hoppy at the same time, again with malt trying to come through. Body was dark amber, whichs always looks appealing. Easy to drink, but certainly doesn't live up to all the hype behind it.

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - MAR 1, 2004
Dark amber body, with a small really thick head. The aroma is citrus and some bread. Flavor is caramel, honey and a bitter aftertaste. Low carbonated and a very watery mouthfeel. Nothing much to say about this one... boring...

Eirikur (372) - hafnarfjordur, ICELAND - FEB 26, 2004
A very light and blonde Ale of the style. Taste is light yet it has alot to it. Nice malt and hops combination.

Tessic (906) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 13, 2004
This one poured a orangy red with a beautiful thick creamy head. Strong scents of caramel and citrus with a little dough tossed in for good measure. First taste was watery and short lived on taste. The low carbonation thing didn't help either. The finish was short lived with a slightly malty/ bitter finish. The taste seemed to build up after a while and be more full. As for the palate there wasn't initially much to it. Still watery with a very slight bittery aftertaste. Although this doesn't sound like a good review I'm still a fan of this ale.

Christian (11278) - Odense, DENMARK - FEB 12, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2010 Amber beer with a small but lasting, creamy head. A strong aroma of malt, caramel and honey. But itís watery without much flavour, with only a little hop aftertaste.

piscator34 (1996) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 28, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2004 A smooth drinking red ale. Not much head, but very appealing colour. Goes down almost too easily. This isn't really a sipping beer.
