COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It is of a beautiful dark golden colour with a deep lustre. It has the color of honey and the transparency of spring water, as well as an excellent body and taste. It is very well saturated with carbon dioxide and has a pleasant, noble hops bitter, as well as a unique malt-hops taste.

wnp22 (685) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - NOV 13, 2004
Tasted in Toronto. Obtained from LCBO. Tasted in dimpled mug. Tasted cold. Pours a deep rust colour. Small head, disappears almost immediately. Aroma his faint, but has a slight clove / spicy element coupled with a sweet malty side. Taste is of malt, sugar and alcohol. Fairly rustic blend - not too balanced but, at the same time doesn’t seem as bad as the past rating seem to make it out to be.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 16, 2004
Sweet boozy aroma. Clear copper coloured with no head. Simple sweet caramel malt flavour. Insipid, still and heavy. Alcohol burns. I would avoid having this one again. Canned (MontreAlers - October meeting).

ThomasE (5176) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 5, 2004

JorisPPattyn (7721) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUL 15, 2004
Dark orange-gold; good fluffy, darker yellow head, fast gone. Very remarkable first aroma of cocos/copra; disappears fast, leaving some cookies, left in rainwater. Sweet cookies taste - I seem to get again some cocos. Alcohol also comes out in the taste. Retronasal, faint oxidation, even madeirisation - ?? BBD is only 3 months ago? Slick, alcoholy, warming mouthfeel, medium bodied. Unadventurous, rather boring lager. If the cocos would have persevered, I would have appreciated it more - even out of a tin can.

shrubber85 (6978) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUN 4, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2005 Bottle. Slilght sweet malt with slight tannic tones. Reddish tan color with moderate but quickly collapsing head. Sweet, syrupy malt flavor with slight astringency - a bit too sweet for me.

leaparsons (7805) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2004
Orange/gold and flat looking. Aromas are sweet water and alcohol fumes. Flavours are LOTS of sugar dissolved in water with traces of caramel. Awful hobo juice.

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 24, 2004
A dark orange beer with a fine head. The aroma is simple sweet malty with hints of caramel. The flavor is simple too; sweet malty with notes of caramel, honey, and yeast but with an OK bitterness to compensate the sweetness.

omhper (18966) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JAN 12, 2004
Bottled. Deep golden. Soft and fruity, rounded and sweet. Dangerously drinkable, but with no outstanding features.

Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - NOV 26, 2003
Unpleasant dishwater aroma. Terribly sweet flavour. Malty. This is a really bad brew.
