Iced tea look with no head but plenty of carbonation. Not much for aroma. This beer had no taste except for slightly sour mouth full of puke aftertaste. Not impressed at all. very dissapointing

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Picked this up in Denmark, September 08 Poured mid amber with white head and med-high carbonation. My initial words to my dad was if I was blind folded I would have thought that this was canned. This beer has a really tinny nose and flavour which run roughshod over what was already a beer struggling to stamp any authority on matters, soft in mouth with sweet maltiness, its just ok.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a four finger cream head that fades quickly to a thin layer, leaving some lace. Clear amber color. Good carbonation and light-medium bodied. Malty nose. Flavor is sweetish caramel, don’t get the metallic that some raters have noted. $1.99 for a 330ml bottle from Manchester Wine and Liquors Manchester, CT.

11.2 oz bottle. Lightly hazed amber with a nice tan head. Rather sweet caramelly maltiness in the nose, flavor is much the same. Rather blah.

Bottle (in NZ), a crystal clear copper with a yellowish bubbly head. Sweet malt on the nose - toffee, but slightly grainy. Very grainy palate, some caramal in the malt. As others say, metallic and thin.
