Bottle, 500 ml, brown
No head, lively carbonation, very nice deep amber colour, Aroma of malt, plum, Flavour; malty, sweet, fruity, some caramel and apple, lagerish but the taste is deeper and "fuller", smooth and medium to full bodied, yeast, very nice to drink, nothing disturbing.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle that I picked up from somewhere, somehow in summertime, to quote a Simple Minds lyric (coz I think I got it last summer) Pours amber with large white head and a steady persistent rising of bubbles. Started off a bit malty but finishes with some bitterness, it’s a bit mellow, safe and thin, ok.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
02/03 I believe this is what I had, as the label was different. 0.33 l bottle, which poured copper body with bigger brownish head. Aroma was of caramel and brown sugar, with some yeast; pretty simple yet pleasant. Flavor...nasty, a bit metallic, rotten vegetables...I don’t know what to say, really dubbed would I rate it at all, but here it is, and I will surely rerate this as it is very likely to be spoilt bottle.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Smallish white head. Light amber body. Sweetish caramelly aroma with notes of straw, very faint. Sweetish straw and malts taste with faint fruity notes. A bit fruitier and warmer than a lager, but really quite similar. Some catty, rubbery notes. Aftertaste is dry and wooden without much news. Some chalkiness. It’s all right, but a bit boring. (0.33l bottle at Cardinal.)

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours amber-red with a thin, grayish head. Faint malt aroma with fairly decent mouth feel. Carmel, fruity flavor, although somewhat weak. Not bad, but not great either.
