1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Tasted 14/02/2006. 500ml can from New World, Island Bay.
Red-gold, lowly carbonated, creamy off-white head that lingers and laces. Looks great but with the eyes closed there is nothing much going for this beer, at all. Mostly caramel on the nose, sugary-sweet, with a hint of toasty malt and estery fruitcake. Short, lightweight and watery in the mouth with suggestions of brown sugar, caramel and a slight smokey whisky character. Over-attenuated (probably due to the high ratio of simple fermentables). Metallic residue. I probably would have thought this was quite good 5 years ago... it certainly beats Tui, but only just.

Talk about bad beers. Smell is of can, taste is of rotten meat and the overall worth of this beer is slightly higher than the aluminium it sits in.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
This draft brew poured a medium sized head of foamy finely sized mostly lasting off-white colored bubbles excellent sheet lacing. The body contained no carbonation, was transparent and copper brown in color. Its aroma contained notes of very mild malt hop . Its mouth feel is initially tingly with a mellow palate and a hoppy aftertaste. Its flavor contained mild caramel hop notes. A very average brew.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can. Some toffeish flavours. Typical pasteurised and artificially carbonated feel to it. Sufficiently lacking in most flavours to be relatively inoffensive.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark copper colour with a huge, off-white, long-lasting head. A faint, indecipherable aroma. The taste was metallic and somehow seemed rather old fashioned: it was thin and featureless like some of the popular British beers of the 70’s. Enjoyable nostalgia... unfortunately I still have three more cans to drink.

On tap at Highlander Pub, Ottawa. Dark copper body with light carbonation and thin off-white creamy head. Light malty aroma that lacks complexity. Fair malty/hoppy taste with light bready and roasty notes. Ends with a decent bitter finish.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2007 Can. Distinct metal aroma. Copper colour with beige head. A slightly burned maltyness in flavor, but both flavor and finish is dominated by metal. Light bitterness in the end. (051011)

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: FEB 7, 2006 Am little, aromaless too, but the taste is a little spiciy and sweet at the same time. I like it, but the foam was not that yumi.

Haven’t tasted this for YEARS! Still a run of the mill malty/grainy beer, I suppose I’ve had worse, but that’s not much of a recommendation, is it? Probably be years before I taste this again.

far better than expected actually, thopugh a stupidly big head on it. aroma is not to bad for a canned ale though im not sure what it smelled of. taste is a bit sweet but is an easy drink.
