Orange/amber in color with a large white head that quickly disappeared.
Faint hop aroma. Tastes smooth and crisp like a good lager but with a noticeable hop bitterness. Solid, but

Anchor steam, yep thats what it tastes like. How about you bring up one of the Titanic anchors from Davey Jones Locker with some of the seaweed stuck to it, and lots of sea water. Once you have the anchor on the deck of your ship, scrape all the barnacles off and boil them in the sea water that you saved from the locker. Now drill a hole into the carcass that used to be an anchor. Pull out a straw and start sippen the sewage you’ve created.........YUM!!!!!&

Now here’s an enoyable beer. Has a smooth palate that give a tang in the aftertaste - really refreshing. And a True Blue Amerian Brew Too! It’s lager brewed at ale temperature - An inviting gold appearance with amber foam and sublime, smooth taste. Really excellent and original.

UPDATED: APR 18, 2008 12 oz. bottle - Pours a nice deep copper color. Not much of an aroma. Head pours thick, then thins out toward the bottom. Nicely hopped, smooth taste, and easy to drink. Not much of an after taste. A good West Coast beer.
Re-rate I left the write up the same. Adjusted the numbers up a tad. A pretty good beer.

This is a really great lawnmower brew. Bright copper olor. Large head that dies. Nose is pretty weak and watery...lager yeast...however I could make out the cascades in this bad boy. Taste is very refreshing and yet not crisp. More like a wet noodle than a lemon. But not bad. A tad watery fro sure but not awful. Cascades dominate in my mouth. A bit too simple maybe.

This was a good surprise. Pours brown and the taste is amazing. The beer was served to me a little warmer than a normal beer, but I assume that was for a purpose. The taste is light hops and very sweet. This is a unique beer that I enjoyed alot.

Deep copper color, nice head, malty yeasty flavor with some hop bitterness that lingers in your throat awhile.Great lace.The warmer it is the more flavor.Same basic makup as a Sam Adams minus those wonderful spicey Flavoring Hops.

Nice copper color with a nice head. This one’s a favorite with pizza. Slightly bright taste that wakes up your palate. Very refreshing as well.

Huge Head out of the bottle dirty eggshell. Like organic eggs you find at the grocer. Deep amber color. Little hoppy, definitely taste and smell the floral mix. Again another west coast brewery thats getting my attention.
