2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
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).

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. Deep golden. Soft and fruity, rounded and sweet. Dangerously drinkable, but with no outstanding features.

Unpleasant dishwater aroma. Terribly sweet flavour. Malty. This is a really bad brew.
