turbo (1271) - Arizona, USA - JUL 11, 2004
not bad, thick foamy head and good lacing, aroma a bit nasty,, nice light amber color kinda plain dull taste but better than all the corner store beers

Can. Amber pour capped by a very thick frothy head. Nose is malty and not very nice. Flavor notes are hops, malt, barley, caramel, and carbonation. As it warms, apple and honey notes come out. Finish is dry and kinda metallic. After reading some of the reviews, I thought that this would be alot worse than it is. It is not a really great beer by any stretch, but there are ALOT of worse pale lagers out there. If you have to drink a PL, make it this one. I drank the first half of my oil can by itself and the last half whille eating a pizza. It is a very good food beer-it compliments nice and does not overpower.

The big oil cans are the way to go. It’s a leg up on the normal American Macros, so if you don’t really know your way around beer and you don’t mind a little bit of a bitter kick, than this will be enjoyable for you.

Pours a nice copper but everything nice stops there. No real aroma or taste. Kind of tastes like the can it came in.

mutant (854) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 12, 2004
Nice darkish colour but that’s about it. No real aroma and only very slight malt and bitterness in the flavour. I didn’t think they still made this so I picked this up at Quaffers. Ok so it was a mistake.

pkbites (981) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 9, 2004
Pours a massive marshmellow head that stays on like shaving cream. That screams artificial additives!!!! Looks good with it’s deep copper hue, but it just may be REAL copper (from old, melted down pennies) that give it that color! I says this because it has a quick metallic taste to it. Blech. People are fooled into paying premium for imported beer. Imported or not, this is an over priced mouthful of pig-slop. Stay away!

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - JUN 2, 2004
Harsh metallic taste, with a very strong coppery bitter aftertaste. This might be better on draft, but I doubt if they even keg this. This was just as bad as Victoria Bitter.

dropkickm79 (53) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 10, 2004
i liked it. i thought it had a good clean taste. very full of flavor but this not my first choice in a beer

MrKevvie (29) - Texas, USA - MAY 9, 2004
Not impressed, this has a pretty strong metallic taste, the pint can is overkill, i didn’t even finish it... flavour is sickeningly sweet and just doesnt do it for me. CUB would be better served importing VB or Melbourne Bitter, both of them are far superior to this!!

Braudog (6836) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - MAY 6, 2004
Massive 75% head when poured from the ridiculous can. No aroma here. In the end, this isn’t much different than any other mass produced beer except it does have a little bittering. In a blind taste, I’d have guessed it was an average American ready-recipe amber ale.
