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.

omhper (19932) - TyresŲ, SWEDEN - MAR 19, 2002
Amber coloured. Sweetish, rather malty. Dryish finish with some bitterness. Not the most complex of beers, but not bad for a megabrew.

fiulijn (15217) - 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.

harrisoni (14104) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 14, 2006
33cl bottle. Deep brown with thin off white head. Some yeast, some red malt on the aroma. Bit of stale malt too. Cream and red malts in mouth. Bit thin otherwise. Bit ugly as the bottle went down.
