Nothing too fancy here, just a smooth and easy drinking beer. Light hop flavor and subdued malt makes it a perfect anytime drink.

Cloudy orange-red with nice, but short lasting head. Sweet, wort-like aroma. Smooth, soft, malty, bitter-dry. Has lots of taste and body considering ABV.

For its historical value alone, this has to get some respect. As a beer, it's nothing special these days, but its uniqueness is intriguing. Nice crisp taste, good hop flavor and a good session beer.

he first thing I think of when I taste this beer is, well, Bass Ale. I no longer drink Bass because of all the other beers on the market which taste much better. Still, a decent pale ale with a good hop bite. Something which goes well with a steak or other strong meat dishes. A good base for black & tan if you don't have bass.

UPDATED: OCT 30, 2007 Just couldn’t help myself. I’ve had SO many of these and have never rated. Why so high? This beer I give credit along w/ SNPA for moving my tastes and those of a thousand others along the road to more and better. Sure there were others and many that in actuality I hold far higher and appreciate in the way one normally thinks (hell, I like Liberty ale more than Steam), but this one came at a time when I needed something to kick my quest into gear and this did the trick.THANK YOU!

Light hybrid... Very enjoyable for just one beer. Light bitterness in the entire beer meakes this beer an easily accessible beer

Nice beer. Somewhat similar to Sam Adams Lager, in terms of good hops, and aroma.

bottled and on tap: ive had this even at the brewery which i highly recomend if your visting san francisco. this is always a good standbye for me. amber hue and nice full head, a malty character with some hops thrown in there but not a lot. dry finish. a sour aftertaste. i like it real cold on draft best? i know weve all had it so lets go try something different.

Pours an amber hue with a slight yeasty aroma... the taste is there, but not as hopped as I generally like my beer. However, it still beats ALL of the American Standard lagers.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a light copper with a thin fizzy white head that doesn't last. Very basic beer. Not very complex. Not a lot of hops. Nice malty flavor. For a rather bland beer it's pretty good. A decent session brew at a good price.
