Pours dark amber/copper with a white, thin head. Strong lacing. A weak malty aroma with a flavor to match. Sweet but a little watery. No bitterness and little hop flavor. Not creamy as I expected. A little skunked. I can taste the Dutch in it. The can stated "Product of Hollland". Smooth and easy to drink, but not at all impressive. thehoff (598) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 28, 2003
Light red tan, thin white head. Smells sweet. Skunked? Plain beer slightly bitter. Not really that good or memorable. igneous1 (1535) - Davenport, Iowa, USA - OCT 25, 2003
color is brownish/amber with a moderate off-white head. first thing that immediately jumped out at me was apples in the aroma. flavor definitely has a roasty quality. pretty thin kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - OCT 24, 2003
Bottle, poured amber-orange with a sudsy medium head. Malty toffee aroma, I cant find anything else there. Quite thin and watery feel about it. Innoffensive flavour. Start and finish are sweet and malty. Well balanced, with a slightly smokey aftertaste. Not bad, but nothing amazing. Suttree (6392) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 18, 2003
Reddish orange. Large, thick, rocky, long lasting head. Smells of malt, cereal, and grain. Smoky and hoppy, with a dash of black pepper in the flavor. Maybe a little watery, but was overall better than I was anticipating.

Can. Clear brassy orange color with medium carbonation and a foamy head. Aroma of mildly toasted caramel malt, weak hops, and aluminum. Malty flavor with moderate sweetness and low bitterness. Tastes far from home and states the word "average" in a detached, monotone voice (with an Irish accent of course). lasonovich (151) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 17, 2003
A nice amber ale, beamish red is better but htis is more readily available. Still its got a good strong flavour and nice creamy colour. r464 (2360) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 12, 2003
From bottle. This is smooth and not at all bitter, with no lingering aftertaste at all. Not particularly unique, coppery colored with a little bit of a punch. carboloader (674) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 5, 2003
Pours copper with large light tan head. Aroma is nondescript with some malt. Not much unique flavor. Very smooth and easy to drink though. Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - OCT 4, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 29, 2015 Nitro tap, dark tan appearance, creamy lasting head. Sort of a boring beer. Not much other than a hint of hop bitterness, and a strong caramel flavor malt aspect. Update when sampled on tap at RVC. No change. Reminds me of what Killians had been like back in the day.
