It was a free bottle. Ok the label is better than the beer. Poured yellow with good carbination. Was a little on the yeasty side and that was about it. Nothing special here.

big eggy and bready aroma. weird cheese thing going on... hazy golden yellow body. big white head that diminishes airy and soapy. it’s not, that bad. oh, the label has a scratch-off, which you scratch off to show the beer girl’s butt. yeaauuup.

igel (196) - New Mexico, USA - NOV 22, 2004
A light amber color, slightly hazy, and light co2 with a small white head. Lacing is sticky and head retention is low. Aroma is lightly fruity and malty with a hop background. Flavor has a slightly sweet start with a light hop finish. Mouthfeel is light bodied and watery with a lingering hop bite. Not much to talk about. Not bad, but not a lot of character. The label is far more arousing than the beer.

DCopperfields (145) - Alabama, USA - NOV 15, 2004
A slightly murky yellow/bronze colour with a minimum of head and a floating wisp atop. This after a vigourous pour. Very light malty nose. Not much going on aroma like. Soft, slightly tangy mouthfeel and a minimum of light malt notes and a bit of balancing hops. Not much going on for a Belgium beer. Quite a disappointment.

igneous1 (1489) - Davenport, Iowa, USA - NOV 12, 2004
pale yellow with the slightest of haze. no head. mosty buttery toffee nose i’ve ever smelled on a beer. diacetyl out the wazoo? flavor is essentially the same..like sucking on a Brach’s butterscotch candy.

hopdog (8530) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 23, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 12, 2005 Poured a light golden color with a small white head. Grassy aroma and tastes. On the weak side. Nothing to go out of the way for unless you want to collect the bottle for the scratch off panties - not to be a male chauvinist pig, but I’ll give it an extra point for the label...

SETANTA (582) - Bangor, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 18, 2004
This was listed as a Belgian style at the local brewpub, so I was expecting a completely different kind of beer... which was disappointing in and of itself... but this turned out to be the typical Alsatian style lager... very grainy, little bitterness or hop aroma... they should leave lagers to the Germans and Czechs, and stick to the traditional Belgian styles... which allow more leeway for creativity.

SpringsLicker (3046) - Tennessee, USA - OCT 10, 2004
Thanks to Skaughty for this one! This looks good going into the glass, bright golden color, crystal clear, nice dense white head. The aroma is the first clue that this beer has some faults. Soapy aroma. While there are no horrible flavors to follow the aroma, unfortunately there were no real good malt or hop flavors there either. Thin, wet, cold and refreshing with no more beer character than a typical American Light Lager.

If the beer were half as good as the young maiden on the front, there might be something to shout about. However, I think this concoction falls under the "Buffalo Butt Postulate," (which I just made up and have copyrighted) which states, "The flavor of the beer is adversely affected by the cleverness of the bottle’s labeling." In other words, if the illustration is one that makes you giggle or think "Wow, what a cool bottle!," then chances are the contents inside are nothing to make a song up over. This stuff is labeled beer because mineral water doesn’t necessarily have an aftertaste. Get this one for the interesting label, but don’t expect anything other than guilt over getting butterflies for an illustration's derriere.

I had a very nice time scratching the beer maiden’s undies off. It’s just to bad the beer itself didn’t excite (or is it arouse?) as much of an interest. Slightly sweet, honey aroma. Corn, grain and honey flavors. Finishes bland and watery. Light bodied and lifeless. The bottle label is the only redeeming part of this most unsexy beer.
