No head on mine, but I did pour into a wet glass. Low but sustained carbomnation. Darkish, a little off from a generic Canuck macro. Certainly a hoopy nose. The palate was abit oilt at the start, with some dry hoppy finish. Taste seems to be lacking, though.

Wow 1525 that’s old beer, you would think that it would be a little more… lets see … the word I’m looking for is… I don’t know but 500 years, and its still kina average tasting to me. Don’t get me wrong I enjoyed this beer down to the last drop, but I felt as if something was missing?

Ducati (37) - Portsmouth, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 22, 2002
mild spicy hop aroma, a touch of acetaldehyde. Nice balance of hop/malt flavor, moderate bitterness, medium body. Light straw color. A tasty beer when fresh.

The one that I had didn’t pour with a head. A light appearance with a slight wheat, grainy aftertaste. A tad on the watery side.

VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 29, 2002
Clear light straw with a frothy white head that lasts until the end and leaves a nice pattern of lace. Loaded with carbonation. Suspended flecks. Herby aroma, light grains. Crisp and clean at first, decent hop bite both lightly bitter and flavorful. Light grainy taste and husky-dry paper like aftertaste. Leaves your mouth dry, not quenching at all. Flavors thin out, crispness fades, as does my interest. There are better Polish brews, as this is merely adequate at best.

Ernest (6749) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 14, 2002
Head is initially average sized, rocky, frothy, white, fully lasting. Body is light yellow, clear, small visible particles (thin density). Aroma is lightly malty (light bread, grain), lightly hoppy (herbs), with a faint bubble gum note. Flavor is lightly sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, slightly metallic. The bubble gum note seems a bit odd but not unpleasant, and the finish is a bit metallic, but the head won’t die and it’s unfiltered.

sleepdirt (169) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 8, 2002
Slightly fruity,slightly spicy/grainy. Slightly is the proactive word here. Not much, just watery and mildly alcoholic.
