I was not impressed. I noticed no distinctive qualities in flavor whatsoever. Extremely light in color, huge head, mild aroma, no flavor and a mediocre finish.

Devilishly large 750ml bottle. Thick with spices, this quality Belgian brew is a bit fizzy, but is pleasant. Metallic bitterness and touches of hops bring this brew down. As with everything, the Devil is in the details.

Really an excellent Belgian. Definately a yeasty nose, but it has nice fruity tones throughout and a good hop bitterness that I enjoyed. Decidedly one of the better Belgians.

Smelled awful, tasted bad. Not what I thought is was going to be. Boddington is a better golden ale

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2003 re rate Bottle conditioned. Faintly hazy straw gold, moderate head and condition. Bready yeast aromas carried up on alcoholic vapours. Sweet and yeasty in the mouth with a slight citric edge which lingers into the short finish.

Like its name suggests, this stuff is wicked!! Real smooth and fruity taste, but after 2 of them you start to buzz.

Eh. Budweier with alcohol and cherry accents. Quite bitter. After swallowing it was like i just swigged some atered down vodka, initials tastes disappeared way too quickly. Mediocre, granted i wish budweiser tasted like this and carried its wallop. De debil wasnít in this brew, only melancholy.

I was disapointed by this one. Bitter, thatís all i can say. Almost no flavors.

Golden with a HUGE head. Citrus and skunk aroma. Spicey honey with some skunky notes. Seems like itís been exposed to light for too long. Iíll have to try it again sometimes.
