2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear medium gold color with fluffy head. Doughy aroma with some yeast and a bit of hops. Flavor is nutty and grainy malt. Mouthfeel is medium and crisp. Overall average. A beer that wouldn't offend the average beer drinker.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Such a popular beer, and I can see why. It's relatively bland, unassuming, sweet, and easy drinking. Kind of watery, often flat (bottle or tap), uninteresting finish often leaves me wondering if I just drank a sip of beer or water. Generally inconsistent except for the negatives. I wanted to like this beer; really, I did because it was in the fridge at most of my friends' houses.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice orange/amber color and good clarity. Toasted malt and slightly fruity aromas. Taste is slightly sweet with low hops and aromatic malt. Clean finish. A fine beer.

2.3 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tasted in Toronto. Purchased in Las Vegas NV. Tasted in an English pint glass. Tasted at 10C. Appearance is clear copper in colour. Large and sustained white fluffy head. Aroma is very malty with a slight grassy presence. Absolutely no hoppy floral bitternes in the aroma. Flavour is subtle but unbalanced - big on malt with very slight bitterness leaving little or no finishing balance.

UPDATED: JUL 10, 2004 Dry, watery. Earthy malts, some pale hops. Rather unimpressive.

An average beer, with a bitter aftertaste. Decent beer for the masses, but I was unimpressed.

UPDATED: SEP 29, 2005 Something about this beer’s smell is almost nauseating to me. The taste to this beer is equally disgusting. I am totally surprised by how much i detest this beer.
Re-rate: I have several of these since then, and I am now convinced that my original beer must have been skunk (1,4,1,1,3) which explained the 1 overall ranking. I still don’t love it though.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Looks a bit like brandy with a hint of foam. Quite lovely considering the lack of head.
Aroma has some mild cinnamon and a hint of candy sugar. Pleasant, easy drinker and none the worse for it. Very balanced.
