UPDATED: DEC 8, 2003 For the comercially marketed beer it is one of the better. Not bitter at all with a nutty taste. Not up to par with most other belgian ales such as Belhavens or a dozen others but pretty good none the less for a commercial beer.

Copper colored, small beige head. Sweet aromas with caramel, malt and nuts. Sweet taste with caramel and bread. Easy to drink, mediocre.

550ml from bottle bought at Lidl. Brown ale, very commercial, and hence soft and weak character. Drinkable, and problably better than most lagers, so I good alternative for a similar price

It's about as basic of a beer now a days as you can find. Years back it used to be special and unique but the flavor has come and gone since the craft breweries have popped up everywhere ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle at Facebook in Menlo Park, CA. Aroma is caramel, banana candy, slight molasses. Taste is thin, clean, light malty syrups. Aroma is interesting but the flavor is lacking.

Pours dark amber with a small head that recedes. Malt and some skunkiness on the nose. Taste is malt and grain with an element that’s difficult to define but is a definite characteristic of this beer. It’s watery but still enjoyable. This is not a perfect beer, but it’s a legendary beer. Canny.

bunget (994) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 8, 2017
Can. Clear copper body, big beige head with great retention and lots of lacing. Aroma of stalled water, grains, metal can, caramel. Taste of grains, hints of bread crust, burned sugar, toffee and booze. Meh.
