Radek Kliber (6519) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - SEP 14, 2002
Boring example, very weak aroma. Watery feel, with slight bitter aftertaste. So boring I do not know why they make such stuff?

madsberg (10309) - Søborg, DENMARK - AUG 12, 2002
UPDATED: APR 13, 2003 On tap: Nice amber colour. Not much head. Malty aroma. Smooth, round flavour with some bitterness. Has a medium lasting aftertaste. One of my favourites, when visiting an Irish pub.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 10, 2002
On tap in an Antwerpen Irish Pub. Amber whiskey crystal clear with smallish light yellow head and dense tall lace. Generous double malty aroma but nothing else. Lowly carbonated like many English draught beers. Soft malty sweet and less bitter start. Sweetish middle and a medium bitter finish. Limited flavour and the palateis a tad too plain for my taste.

dirtymike (2016) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 4, 2002
UPDATED: AUG 10, 2005 Deep copper in color with a small white head. Aroma of grainy malt and fruit. Flavor bread, toasted/roasted malt witha dry finish.

Hildigöltur (5103) - København, DENMARK - JUL 28, 2002
The version you buy in Denmark contains more alcohol. Nice red colour. Strange aroma. Refreshing and bitter taste. From draught it gives you an extremely creamy and tasty white head and better taste.

pivo (2571) - GERMANY - JUL 26, 2002
Sweet molasses and apple-like nose. Reddish-brown color and a nice leggy head. Sweet light roasted malt taht is slightly smokey even. Thin body and a fizzy texture. OK.
