3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Ashley's, Ann Arbor. Exceptionally clean, with a crisp malting and body galore, subtle (only slightly floral) hopping. Delicious and super quaffable.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 25, 2003 A light, clean beer (as they put it) with nice subtle flavors. Not much in the aroma department, but based on Anchor's unique brewing techniques, it's hard to know what to expect in this style. It's a nice session beer with a refreshing finish. Good on a hot day!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear amber w/ lasting, light beige head. Aroma is malty (burnt caramel, light toast) & hoppy (floral, perfume). Smooth, medium-bodied feel. Flavour is malty (caramel, toast) at first, fruity in the middle, at hoppy, dry, & lightly acidic in the finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber colour, huge head, really lasting. Malty aroma, quite alcoholic. The flavour is malty too, with some caramel and plums traces. Nice hoppy aftertaste. Not so good as the Liberty ale, but still a pleasant and very refreshing beer.

I love this beer and this company. Great Cascade hoppiness and flavour. A very unique beer that has often been imitated but not yet duplicated.

Amber colour, clear and clean. Crisp taste with slight hoppiness, not very noteworthy though. Very common beer in SFBA area while I lived there.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark orange color, a bit cloudy. I couldn't get a proper, lasting head from this one. Aroma is malty and slightly smoked. Robust malt texture, with a hint of roasted grains a nice hop bitterness to complement it, especially in the finish. Peculiar. Drinkable. Good.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Orange color. Smooth but not interesting; poor aroma (alcohol, rhum, cardboard, some malt). Some malt and caramel in the taste, not enough hop and aroma.
