This is a decent looking beer, and the smell isn't bad, but the taste and mouthfeel are nothing special at all. The aftertaste is a moderate bitter that I didn't care for, and on my own personal scale, I gave it a 4/10. This isn't a beer that I'd care to have again.

Amber, mildly hoppy, blah, blah. This was a very uninteresting beer. I don't know who this could be exported to, because I wouldn't want it.

ElGaucho (2306) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - JAN 17, 2004
Caramelly malt aroma and some cloying sweetness. Cloudy in appearance with some particles and good visible carbonation. Small head that is mostly dissipating. I've had a million beers that taste like this. Add another to the list. Boring. A little stale. Not sweet enought.

Light pleasant nose, deep gold color, nice head. Cookie, bread-like malt body. Could use some more hops. Medium body. OK beer.

Holdwine (1131) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 10, 2004
Good everyday beer. Coppery in color, slightly cloudy. Drinks crisply with just a touch of hoppy fruitiness. How come this "Canadian" ale is so much better than the crap they send over the border?

dprior (118) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 7, 2004
Amber, but a bit cloudy. Strong Hop aroma with a similar taste that also had a hint of fruitiness. Had a slight malt finish. Enjoyable.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - JAN 4, 2004
Draught, @ Federal Jack’s, Kennebunk, Maine.</br> Amber with a slight lacy head. Big green hoppy aroma. Very nice indeed. Nice finish and much better then the last.

Hoppy cherry nose. Amber color, lively carbonation. Nice fruity hoppy taste, refreshes. Light all in all.
