I agree with Bruce, I coulda thought it was a budweiser except for the finish. Too fizzy, and that does it for complaints except for overpriced, not a bad beer, but not a good beer. I did like the bottle it came in. Would not buy again.

Very disapointed with this beer for what it costs. Tasted like a hoppy budweiser. It was just totally lacking in flavor and imagination. I was almost in disbelief that a beer this average could be so overhyped and overpriced.

Iím not a big lager fan, but after reading about how this beer was made to gain some ale qualities, I was impressed. Much more complexity than a typical lager. It was not too much bitterness. Iíd like to try some other beers in the style to see if itís really a good style.

UPDATED: MAR 28, 2003 Pretty nice beer. A little too much fizz for me though. Nice coloring and head though. Not my favorite, but I'd buy another six pack. Update: I had the distinct pleasure of trying this beer again on tap in San Francisco. The head was most glorious in the pitcher and the flavors and aroma's much more prominent. Better on draft.

Smooth and balanced with the right amount of hops. Refreshing, I enjoyed this one. Good overall flavor that went well with the day.

I have a penchant for hops, and this beer both teases and satisfies me. I really enjoy it, but I can take it for granted, since the flavor and palate are both so smooth and balanced. Itís an inviting and accessible beer that seems to work for just about everybody, and its quality and consistency seem virtually unrivaled.

A beautiful looking and smelling beer. The flavour doesnít quite stand up to that initial expectation, but itís quite good. Iíve only had it bottled, but I enjoy it very much especially with bar food as the hops really cut through.
