UPDATED: DEC 6, 2008 Midium amber colour with a frothy, long-lasting white head. Plenty of fruit in the aroma with some hoppiness. Sourness and dryness in the aftertaste. A very pleasent and enjoyable beer.

Pours a nice golden color with a very nice head. Seemed like there was plenty of carbonation, but when I drank it, I couldn’t feel anything. Tasted almost exactly like flat sparkling cider. Had it been carbonated a little bit at least, it probably would have been a pretty good beer. Could be due to the long shipping distance though, as I live in NJ. The flavors were pleasant, although it smelled like a shitty macrobrew, it didn’t taste remotely like one.

12oz bottle.Served in a 16oz lager glass at 58°. Pours copper colored with a small off-white head. Aroma is mild caramel with earthy hops. A nice, full mouthfeel initially. The taste is light, caramelly malt, flourish yeastiness, but the main flavor is the somewhat earthy, moderately spicy hops, which provide a nice mild to moderate bitter finish. It is amazing to think at one time this was THE american beer. Thanks to Fritz Maytag for getting craft brewing going again in the US.

This is one of those kind of beers that u can buy a sixer of and give to your guests, a golden brown tea colour with some minimal head..has a pleasing yet not overpowering bitterness, nice. on the higher end in price but the subtle bitters will get your guests jive-N.

Amber with dissapearing head. Sharp and complex at first. The finish is quite bitter and it’s a little too carbonated for me. Tases better as it warms and looses a little fizz. Excellent beer to have with spicy food.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Malty, lager-like aroma. Pale clear copper color. The creamy white head disappeared almost before I looked at it. Crisp and bitter up front like a good pale ale with a clean malty finish. Hints of floral hops in the aftertaste. Truly a classic.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma - Light toasted malt notes with some fruity esters. Rustic hop notes. Light diacetyl? Not sure on that.
Color - copper color with a creamy white head that dissipates rather quickly
Flavor - Bitterness upfront, woody, with a caramel sweetness. Bitterness lingers on the tongue. Diacetyl is evident in the flavor. Must be an either old or mishandled bottle, not uncommon in OK.
Mouthfeel - High carbonation with some astringent character from the hops.
This beer reminds me of something between an Alt and an APA, overall a very good beer.
