On tap: The colour is dark amber. Theres not much aroma and flavour in this. Very disappointing. There are some notes of caramel, but the taste is light and veak. Couldn’t finish my glass. Had to have a Guiness.

Nasty bitter flavor. Reminds me of a bad Killians. Yuck!

ultraspank (867) - Alverca, Lisboa, PORTUGAL - OCT 19, 2002
Had one of these on tap at Bumper’s in Cowlumbus. Nose of spicey toasted malt and ginger and flowers. Pours a clear medium bronze. The creamy off-white head is mostly diminishing with fair lacing. The brew starts sweet with a warm non acidic middle. The sweet finish is fruity but still bland and malty for my taste. The medium creamy body is lively and finishes dry.

Maybe I got a bad bottle, but this beer reminded me of Keystone Light. Brilliant amber color with a frothy off-white head. That’s where the appeal of this beer ends. Skunky macro piss smell. No flavor, like Coors light. I actually dumped this beer after a few swallows.

ToadMan (559) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 4, 2002
Rather plain, the aroma is a nice mix of hops and malt, but neither of those come through too strongly in the taste. Theres nothing at all bad about this one, there just isnt a whole lot there.

I just didn’t like the flavor. Almost tasted like macro swill.

Ingevara (804) - SWEDEN - SEP 28, 2002
I think I must have had my bottles too cold. the smell is promising but it’s just tastesless; no hops, no depth no sugar - nothing much at all.

skortila (4516) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - SEP 25, 2002
Smell is quite okay, i must say; hoppy. Appearance is well not much to sayaboutit, nothing special. Taste is bitter, palate too.

Very nice amber beer. Kick back and enjoy a pint of this.
