GRM (3234) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 16, 2007
Can, 440 ml; eye: an always renewed joy to see this thick cream café-au-lait forming after the pour, copper with orangey reflections, no effervescence, lacing; nose: odours are trapped, stale, really light caramelized malt; mouth: diluted flavors, a bit of caramel, really light hops, really thin finale with a hint of caramelized malt and hops, lightly sweet, light body, not much carbonation; overall: disappointing especially when considering its incredible look FRANÇAIS Canette, 440 ml; oeil : une joie renouvelée de voir cette belle mousse épaisse et crémeuse de couleur café au lait se formée après l’avoir vidée, cuivrée avec des teintes orangées, pas d’effervescence, dentelle; nez : odeurs sont emprisonnées sous l’épaisse mousse, « éventée », très léger malt caramélisé; bouche : saveurs diluées, un peu de malt caramélisé, très léger houblon, finale très mince avec une petite pointe de malt caramélisé et de houblon, légèrement sucrée, corps léger, peu carbonatée; en résumé : très décevant par rapport à son « look » incroyable

daniel0017 (402) - Yukon, CANADA - JAN 10, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2013 Beautiful, thick and creamy off white head that remains long after pouring. The body is a dark amber color with little to no carbonation (once settled). Aroma of roasted malted barley, although very faint. Flavor of roasted barley malt, faint hops with a bitter finish.

I tried it on a dare and although I have scored it well, one pint was enough.

Maria (10187) - Thisted, DENMARK - JAN 4, 2007
Golden with a nice head and a nice almost creamy palate. The aroma has notes of malt, fruits and hops. It’s a light and nice ale with light notes of fruit, caramel and hops and a nice bitterness that develops in the finish. Uncomplicated and charming.

Anglofile (138) - Piti, GUAM - JAN 2, 2007
Canned Draught with a nitrogen ball: Pours a copper colour with an exceptiona creamy tan head that’s good to the bottom. Aroma: bready malt, a whiff of vanilla-fruity right off. Flavour: Malty with that creamy (yet flat) middle. Fruity cheek finish fading into bitter. I like it quite a bit, but not ALOT.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 1, 2007
Can with a nitrogen ball. Nice apperance, creamy nitro head over a light-brown/amber body. Fizzy. Almost no aroma, slightly sourish and dry malty flavor. Some bitterness in the finish. Light-bodied, smooth and boring.

BelgianBeerGal (3333) - Panama City, Florida, USA - DEC 30, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 31, 2009 Draught. I typically rotate this with Guinness depending on my mood in the standard issue Irish pubs found stateside. Another classic that delivers predictable quality every time.
