Sham (1844) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 18, 2007
Cloudy yellow with a small head. The nose is mostly anise which flows into the flavor as well. Slightly sweet, but no figs really. The anise is a bit much as it may be covering other flavors/aromas.

CapFlu (5101) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 25, 2007
(Draught) Sampled at Dix X-mas Xtreme Caskival 2007. Pours a partially cloudy light amber body with no head. Nose of black licorice. Very medicinal, skunky. All gross with a late maltedness that couldnít save this poor recipe.

Huge anis aromadoesnít leave much room for anything else. Hazy blonde body with plenty of yeast in suspension is topped by a low white head that recedes to a wispy cover and slight ring. Flavour is dominated by anise but has an underlying malty sweetness. Medium light body with moderate carbonation. Sampled on cask at Dix (Caskival 2007).

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 8, 2007
Light amber with minimal head. Aroma is dominated by anise and a touch of other herbs. Strong anise flavour but the body is thick enough to hold the flavour. Nice and malty finish. An interesting attempt that does a decent job.

Oakes (15796) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 6, 2007
Beigey-amber colour. Huge anise aroma - one dimensional, this one. The body is good, malts present in the backbone but the anise is way over the top. Not finding much fig. Itís drinkable, and if the anise was dialed down a bit to allow the fig and malts to show a bit more, this could work well. But anise is not the sort of flavour normally used so up-front. Itís suited as an accent in cooking, and beer would be the same IMO.
