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.

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.

Light copper coloured beer with a small head. Roasted, slightly metallic aroma. Rather flat. Light bitter finish. Boring.

[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.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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???

tap. nothing too memorable, but it was good. (I should really start taking notes) interesting and solid flavor with decent body; worth a try.

This beer pours red/amber and it has a small head that fades fast. The taste was generally unimpressive, but still very unique.

Pretty much a run of the mill ale. Nothing to spectactular about it, but it's not bad either.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark amber with a fluffy head that stood up well. Soft malts; mild carbonation. Mouthfeel was decent with a nice and creamy texture. Metallic off-flavor was kind of bothersome. Sweet up front with a hint of fruit, chocolatey in the middle, and slightly bitter in the finish.
