kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - OCT 24, 2003
Bottle, poured amber-orange with a sudsy medium head. Malty toffee aroma, I cant find anything else there. Quite thin and watery feel about it. Innoffensive flavour. Start and finish are sweet and malty. Well balanced, with a slightly smokey aftertaste. Not bad, but nothing amazing.

Suttree (5928) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 18, 2003
Reddish orange. Large, thick, rocky, long lasting head. Smells of malt, cereal, and grain. Smoky and hoppy, with a dash of black pepper in the flavor. Maybe a little watery, but was overall better than I was anticipating.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 17, 2003
Can. Clear brassy orange color with medium carbonation and a foamy head. Aroma of mildly toasted caramel malt, weak hops, and aluminum. Malty flavor with moderate sweetness and low bitterness. Tastes far from home and states the word "average" in a detached, monotone voice (with an Irish accent of course).

A nice amber ale, beamish red is better but htis is more readily available. Still its got a good strong flavour and nice creamy colour.

r464 (2254) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 12, 2003
From bottle. This is smooth and not at all bitter, with no lingering aftertaste at all. Not particularly unique, coppery colored with a little bit of a punch.

carboloader (674) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 5, 2003
Pours copper with large light tan head. Aroma is nondescript with some malt. Not much unique flavor. Very smooth and easy to drink though.

Kinz (3711) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - OCT 4, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 29, 2015 Nitro tap, dark tan appearance, creamy lasting head. Sort of a boring beer. Not much other than a hint of hop bitterness, and a strong caramel flavor malt aspect. Update when sampled on tap at RVC. No change. Reminds me of what Killians had been like back in the day.

kumite56 (473) - Cordova, Tennessee, USA - SEP 30, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 10, 2003 Decent beer. Creamy off-white head with mod lacing on a dark amber body. Aroma is malty and as you would expect, the taste is lightly sweat/malty as well. Additionally, some bitterness and dry hoppy character is present as well. Good effort and drinkable.

GreatStelle (363) - Chico, California, USA - SEP 30, 2003
From a can. A little flat. Good malt flavor. Slightly hoppy. Very dissapointing, not a good beer.

This is an excellent beer, from pour to finish. I can't believe I've never had this before, but I WILL have it again. It pours a caramel color and smells hoppy. The taste is not quite what I expected..thick yet light somehow. It is full bodied and has little bitter aftertaste.
