Amber color, thin white head leaving some lacing. Malty, nutmeg and honey aroma with notable hops. Good flavor, more robust than most lagers. Light to medium body and nicely carbonated. matta (1140) - Tampa, Florida, USA - SEP 6, 2003
I have had this beer dozens of times and last night I indulged in 4 draft pints. I really think that the hops are fuller and fresher on draft. This draft beer was tremendously more floral with citrus, dryer and crisper than the bottled version. Good stuff! Sham (1844) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 5, 2003
Nice amber pour with a creamy head. Pleasing floral aroma and flavor. Very smooth and creamy palate. Not a bad lager. stef92 (128) - Williamstown, New Jersey, USA - SEP 5, 2003
One of my favorites. This beer has a deep amber color. The flavor and roma of the hops is just right. Nice aftertaste. Kåstå (1273) - Mol, BELGIUM - SEP 5, 2003
Dark blond beer with a big off white somewhat creamy head. Light floralhoppy aroma. There is a distinct hoppy taste without too much bitterness.

Tasted in Toronto from the LCBO. Dark golden / orange colour. White head, well sustained. Spicy hoppy aroma, smells more like an IPA than a lager. Flavour is bitter, with a very dry finish and hint of spice. Again, stands up like an ale. evilpsych (34) - USA - SEP 2, 2003
not a fan. unimpressed with this. immediately traded the 5 i had left for corona. doctornick (1) - New York, USA - SEP 2, 2003 does not count
It's not bad, but it is somewhat inconsistant. I've had decent bottles, but others had a certain undertaste I can't identify. ante (3373) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 1, 2003
Dark golden, nice creamy head. Ok hop profile in aroma with sweet malt notes. Grassy, plastic and slightly hoppy flavour. A hard to define sweet maltiness comes through too. Clean citrus like hoppiness in finish (could taste more, though) with some sweet caramel. rlgk (18850) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 30, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 7, 2004 A dark golden beer with a white head. Aroma is hoppy and a little herbal. Has a nice sweet flavor and a balanced bitterness. Very nice body.
