Clear dark golden with an off white head with terrible retention. Very sweet aroma of malt, some slight citrus and herbal hops. The body is thin, with some weak toffee and little else. Weird buttery finish. swirl (267) - collingswood, New Jersey, USA - SEP 27, 2006
Look this is basically an imported forty without the high alcohol. It was decent but definately not as good as the premium. It had a bright copper appearance not much hops on the nose or in the flavor but worth trying. radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 15, 2006

Bright copper in colour, quickly dissipating off-white coloured head, no lacing. The aroma is floral, fruity (peaches), light caramel, quite sweet. The flavour is weak and watery, very light caramel sweetness, bland. Watery mouthfeel, light body, light carbonation. Finishes with a light fruity sweetness. Started of fine but fell apart quickly.

Amber, clear beer. White head, medium lasting. Floral, hop notes in the aroma. A bit oily palate, flavor finish bitter. BeerMountie (119) - Placentia, Newfoundland, CANADA - AUG 29, 2006
500 ml can my wife pickd up while in Ontario. Pours golden amber with very little head, no lacing. Slight aroma of caramel. Very thin beer with very little going for it. I have been disappointed with all the faxe beers I have tried so far.

Golden amber with a thick dissipating white head. Aroma of apple and caramel. In mouth, a sweet metallic beer, rather light and boring. Rickards Red is actually better than this. Can from LCBO. Why???? TheJester (2543) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 15, 2006
Deep amber brown. No head. Faint scent of caramel? Not too sweet. Fairly watery. Slightly metallic-bitter on the palate. Little aftertaste. Not too bad, but nothing special. pootzboy (1815) - Kitchener, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 15, 2006
1/2 liter Euro-can. sheatripper (863) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - AUG 9, 2006
Poured a crystal clear very light amber-gold beer into my stem glass.2 finger chunky cap that reduces quickly to nothing...,NO lacing of the glass...assertive carbonation ( This is the tip off of a malt/dextrose extract syrup high gravity beer)
Aroma: light grains with a very light caramel sweetness soft, stale grassyness.
Weak malt spine, watery mouth feel. Light liquid body and semi-harsh character.
Starts with caramel sweetness with no detectable hop balance very watery...midway some stale hop additive is detected...fast finish.. sweet, some harshness in after taste...
..probably the least objectionable of the FAXE dextrose extract lagers but this type of high gravity extract-brewed beer always tastes lifeless, stale and too sweet to me. This is the type of crap Steelback makes on this side of the ocean...I see no need to import more from Denmark.
One-liter oil can. Deep amber color with quickly dissolving off-white head. Aroma of malt, honey and leather. Flavor was basically off-sweet malt with some hoppiness but with kind of a chemical or metallic aftertaste. Nothing special except for the big-ass can, which would be handy for a tailgate or train ride.
