Can. No head, clear straw yellow. Not much aroma or flavour. Bit of hops and bitterness but not nearly enough. Why would we import this?

caledonian (367) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 31, 2003
Custom bottles. A little skunky aroma upon opening said bottles. Once poured, slight malt aroma. Pale gold color. Some lacing of the head. Fairly smooth, slightly bitter.

thedm (4935) - Fort Wayne, USA - AUG 23, 2003
This brew poured a medium head of fine to medium sized white bubbles that left behind a transparent yellow orange colored body. It had a mild malt hop aroma and a very smooth palate that was only slightly bubbly. The flavor was mildly hopped with some malt shining though.

fiulijn (14533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 19, 2003
Blond to golden color. Very light malt aroma; too simple, without interest, just some bitterness at the end.

bierkoning (10201) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - AUG 10, 2003
Can, on board Eurostar London-Brussels. Sweetish and grainy with apple. Hardly any aftertaste, except metal and a vague skunky bitterness. My liver is really punished with this beer!

From a tin can in the Eurostar - 2.85 Euro for 33cl - but in truth, it was complimentary of the company... masochism for Ratebeer. Colour is arbitrary. God only knows. Nose of pale malts, grainy. I want to smell metallic, but that's prejudice. Taste is very grainy, malt, with quite some sweetness. Bitterish-metallic (this time, no mistake) finish. The metallic tang is more than just the tin can. There's an unrefined hop idea floating around, making everything harsh. Very unpleasant aftertaste, harsh without even bitterness. Light bodied, thinnish texture, the malts notwithstanding. As said, it was for free.

golden colour, white fluffy head. strong corn aroma. decent taste, somewhat sweet, with a dry finish.

Not much aroma, not much taste. Ok if you are desperate to drink something on a hot summer day.

badgerben (4400) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JUL 20, 2003
From St. James Tavern just off Piccadilly Circus, London. I had seen this all over so figured I should try it before I left. Wrong. Appears to be the Budweiser of Europe, although not quite that bad. At least this didn't make me want to tear out my stomach. Still, pretty weak and poor tasting swill. I guess if you need a lager you could do worse than this, but not much.

UPDATED: NOV 13, 2003 Quite ok on a warm day. Not much of an aroma, some hops, but it tastes quite ok, and finishes bitter in a good way.
