Not much of an head, chestnut-coloured. A sour aroma and flavour, watery palate and some strange taste hidden inside.

UPDATED: JUL 23, 2003 Rerate - 7/23/03 - finished the last of the 4 pak last night and it was a chore - just not a good flavor at all. Original rating - 2.9 - 16 ounce can - bit of a wet paper bag aroma, with slight malt undertones. Clear, dark copper color appearance with an off white head that is rather thin and dissipates quickly with little to no lacing. Bit of a spicy taste to it - tad of bitterness. Not the smoothest drinking ale around - but hey - it's Irish - it's got to be a little rough right?

rickgordon (3845) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 15, 2003
This might be the worst beer I've had so far. Syrup color, no head. Revolting aroma and flavor. Woody tobacco-like palate. Hm...I must try this again to see if the sample I got was not poisoned...

Not bad. Almost like the Sapporo I just drank. This is a little maltier, has more of a bitter finish, and of course is darker with a bronze red color.

Nice drinkable ale. I thought it a little to sweet tasting initially, but with a mildly bitter after taste. Drinkable.

leitrim65 (402) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 26, 2003
Bubbly and amber in color. Slight roasted scent in the nose. Dry and light bodied. Slightly acidic flavor to start. Hint of malty smoothness across the tongue. The finish is short and acidic. Nothing exciting about this one.

Kåstå (1273) - Mol, BELGIUM - MAY 18, 2003
Light copper coloured beer with a small head. Roasted, slightly metallic aroma. Rather flat. Light bitter finish. Boring.

CEZ (403) - Milano, ITALY - MAY 12, 2003
[draught] Dark red body, creamy vanilla head. Aroma is weak (hops?). Inital sweet roasted malt leads to a slightly spicy bitterness and to a dry finish. Unimpressive aftertaste. Crisp and drinkable.

Wow...that was incredibly dull!!! The aroma is very nonexistant...i got something malty and a hint of hoppy, but i mean there was not much there...it smelled like cold malt to be honest. It poured a clear but carbonated copper/brown with a thin not long lasting foamy head. The taste is really subdued with malts and some apples being apparent. I just dont see the appeal of this beer...i find the carbonation level to be a wee bit in excess, and the taste is seriously lacking on something that might make me want to drink this again. It wasnt terrible...but where in the hell is there one distinguishable factor that makes this beer aside from a thin malty palate???
