Can. Very dark colour with a blue head (I must admit the light was a bit dodgy). Boring lager with slightly more body than usual.

Lubiere (11232) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 10, 2004
Draft. Golden lager with a thick big bubbled white head. Corny grassy aroma. Lightly sweet malt and adjuncts with a wee bit more hops than you mass produced swill. Body is medium, but beer is damned boring...and expensive (6.50 a pilsner glass at Pied de Cochon.)

If people decided what beer to drink on smell alone, no one would ever drink this beer. I can’t even describe the scent...just that it was awful. The beer itself is a pale yellow with a foamy white head, but not what I expect from a lager. I guess the taste was ok, but again, not what I expected...alot of hops, with only a few bits of malts and a decent amount of bitterness. Very thin body, and the aftertaste matched the original flavor. If you are going to pay for an import, get a Duvel.

Ehh, who let the skunk loose? Light yellow, lots of bubbles, decent, white, foamy head. A little hops in the aroma to accompany the skunk. Flavor is just weird...I guess some malts, but a pretty good hop hit. Thin; watery. Will never buy again.

beerandrugby (210) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 3, 2004
A little boring, but refreshing. Too thin. I wouldn’t have it again. I don’t see how lagers are becomming so popular in the southern UK when there are quality ales on draft and usually cask!

Solid lager. Slightly bitter but not overwhelming. Best when served quite cold. Watch the sell by date. The closer the bottle is, there’s a tendency to get quite bitter and unpalatable.

Hmright (101) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - NOV 29, 2004
Hyped as some sort of crazy alcohol content super beer. Not really that impressive. Kinda sweet, with a bitter finish. Hoppy with a honey hint of flavor. Not looking forward to taking the next sip, but had to choke it down for the price.

(draft) I asked for a Belgian and got this awful thing. I don’t like lagers, and this was a pretty bad lager. Bland mixed with boring.
