Amber was excellent and I like this one even more. Iíve wondered why this one hasnít received more kudoís from reading reviews. As a taster its the best blonde Iíve had. Citrusy, sweet, little hoppy presense. It gets your attention. This is liquid gold. After having consumed Iím surprised its not rated higher than it already is.

Pours clear golden with one finger head that quickly fades. Light crisp hop aroma, clean & refreshing enjoyed on the deck after some yard work!

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUN 29, 2004 Cloudy golden color with a small but lasting white head. The aroma is terriffic: citrusy and pineapple. Flavor is very hoppy. Bitterness is in style and not overpowering as you would expect with all of the hops in the flavor and nose. Enough malty sweetness to carry hoppiness. Reminds me of Dreadnaught’s little brother, must try this again to make sure I’m not delusional.
Second rating. Consistent with the first rating but a little sulfuric? taste. Aroma is still good. 4.4 down to a 4.2, maybe I'm a little critical since I've initially rated so high.

Thoroughly enjoyable. Light and fuzzy texture. At the risk of sounding like the bottlers...great balance of malts and hops. Canít wait to try the others.
