bierkoning (12570) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - NOV 18, 2003
Aroma has apricot, mustard and licorice. Hopbitter flavor with licorice and some caramel. Just a bit of sweetness. Not the typical Belgian amber ale, but loads of flavor and I really liked it.

Hildigöltur (5105) - København, DENMARK - OCT 31, 2003
Loads of toffee in this brew. Extremely sweet, but still rather drinkable. If you drink too much of it, it will be cloying.

Golden color. Simple aroma. But it tastes like chicken! Quite sweet. Forget it.

Bottled. Amber coloured. Lovely resiny balsamic aroma. Sweet and clean with lively honeyish finish. Complex, but perhaps too sweet and very discrete.

madsberg (11402) - Søborg, DENMARK - MAY 11, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 13, 2003 Bottled at the Danish Beerfestival 2003: Orange coloured. Medium lasting head. Has a spicy and somewhat hoppy aroma. Has a full flavour. Fruityness and some vague sourness is present, but not unpleasant. The beer has some metallic notes. Light bitter in the end.

caesar (6680) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 2, 2003
German pilsner like. Skunky smell, a bit like Grolsch Special Malt. Caramel malt in the aroma i guess. Watery taste, not much to say about this anymore. Not my kind of beer.

jerohen (2181) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - MAY 2, 2003
Bottled (0.5 l). I had been drinking special brews before i took this beer so perhaps my vision is a bit blurred, but for me this seemed like an average pilsener. Watery, nothing special.

LeoR (57) - Arkel!, NETHERLANDS - MAY 1, 2003
Je cd-tjes laten branden door een pyromaan, is nooit grappig. Bij de selectie voor de mariniers buiten de boot vallen, is nooit grappig. Een stoelentester die het niet meer ziet zitten, is nooit grappig. Een chirurg die tijdens het amputeren van een arm de benen neemt, is nooit grappig. Een rioolwerker die zegt dat hij onder zijn niveau werkt, is nooit grappig. Iemand met astma een opblaaspop kado doen, is nooit grappig.

I always had troubles buying this beer. The label didn’t invite me to do so. Although 5.1% it looked like a NA. But recently the brewery uses a complete new label (didn’t recognize it as this beer). At the moment the old label is still shown at RB. And what a surprise. It’s more like an english than a belgian ale. The aroma is caramel, hop perfume and very malty. Amber color, off-white head, good lace. Sweet but not annoying, fruity, hoppy, light bitter. A little dry finish. Nice beer.
