2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours an orangey, deep gold and sparkling in the lights. A central eddy of fine bubbles rise up to a flaccid, wafer-thin, broken white head that sadly dwindled further back to crown-less. Overly sweet toasted malt nose with a light showing of apricots and uncooked almonds. Quite fizzy, nostril ticklingly fizzy like a glass of Coca cola™. Again, sweet toasted malts, not as pronounced on the palate as in the nose, but dominant none-the-less. Some candied Belgian yeastiness peeks out. Flows through into a filmy, soapy mouthfeel that trails off into the swallow. Soft flavour of Anzac cookies, pale nuts and dusty old hop flowers in back. Not much length to save it aside the layering effect it had on my tongue - raw almonds anyone? Rather lifeless and one-dimensional overall, I can’t say it is refreshing so it comes down to just plain bothersome to drink. Average. (30cL, 29/08/07, Jandakot Liquor)

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Amber coloured with slight off-white head. This was all a bit dull with a mildly malty aroma followed by bland flavours of lazy hops. Not much of a finish.

Amber colour, large white head. Aroma: sweet, malty. Flavours: quite sweet, smooth, almost no bitterness. Drinkable, although the sweet aftertaste leaves a oily layer on the velum.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From my notes 6/4/2007 on-tap - one-finger off-white head that fades quickly to a ring leaving a good lace. Clear amber color. Malty nose. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied. Flavor is a mellow caramel with hops in the background, clean finish. €3.25 ($4.45) for a 330ml glass from Three Sisters Pub Amsterdam, NL.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Moderate hoppy, toasted malt, light smell of ginger. Light brown colour, clear body with a small fully dimishing head. Sweet flavor, medium duration. The body is rather light than medium, the texture is dry and the carbonation is very flat (nearly missing). Not my kind...

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, amber-brown with a large frothy head. A sweet malt aroma. Some lat flavour, smooth and easy to drink. Not really special when lined up against a lot fo Belgium beers, but deserves a good rating.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Kinda like Stella said Frank (Vanvelo) and he’s not far wrong (in a ’this ain’t no craft beer from Belgium’ way of course). Dark amber in colour with a thin but persistent head. Ok, fair start. Low excitement note with some ok amber ale style malt character; pleasant enough. Sweet gets dumb in the mouth and take a very simple, slightly gluggy form. Just very simple malt sweetness and not much else. Fizzy palate reminds one that this is maco beer.
