Herbal aroma with tones of toast and some cream.
Round, a bit sweet flavor with maltiness and a nice bitterness.

UPDATED: MAR 11, 2004 Copper color, great lasting head. Fruity aroma is the highlight. Nicely bittered, possibly over-carbonated. Well balanced, tasty session brew. Nothing complex about this but the price.

I bitter and blah beer. It had superb color and clarity, but beyond that, it was not worth another go.

Truly one of my favorites. I love the smokey peppery taste of this, with an almost IPA feel to it. Sweet and ejoyable with a nice bitter finish

A very sweet, malty and enjoyable aroma. Slighty smoked aromas and almost devoid of hop flavors; a touch of bitterness.

UPDATED: MAY 9, 2008 Original Rating January 9, 2003:Itís a good, plain beer. Thatís not a bad thing, itís just the better choice to have for a session. Not heavy, not weak. Nice. 7/4/6/3/14 Re-rate May 9, 2008: Okay, the previous rating is a prime example of what NOT to do when starting to rate beers. Good lord... I guess to be fair, it was only about my 41st rating. Anyways... Copper color with a thin head. Spicy floral hop aroma. A simple dry grain and malt flavor. To borrow from BMCís marketing departments, it seemed "crisp". How the hell is that actually possible? Fresh and clean. Simple but good.

The aroma is sweet and of flowers, with hint of malt. The appearance is a nice copper with a light rust colored head, and nice lace. The flavor is a bit malty with a slight bitter aftertaste. The beer is smooth and crisp. Quite a nice brew.

Perfect session beer light in all flavors but nothing is missing. This is the first real beer [all malt] I had ever drank and it ruined me to the mega brews

A good full flavor beer. The steam style has the flavor of an ale, with some varying level of flavors. It's well hopped, probably to cover some of these flavors. It also is a full flavor and bodied beer which is pleasant to drink.
