Dull, mildly hoppy aroma. Light copper body and fluffy head. Moderately bitter with a small amount of malty sweetness. It transistions well and does have a cleaner finish than most beers.

At first it seems very simple and somewhat boring, but after a while I began to notice there’s something else to this. Some caramel, very subtle hops. A little metallic.

UPDATED: MAR 7, 2003 Nice bronze color. Tan head. Hops/malt perfectly balanced. Goes with nearly any meal that a beer can go with. True, it isn't exotic. It just a solid, great BEER!

SLight hop aroma. Subtle citrus flavor among the malt and hops in the body. Finishes slightly dry. A good session brew.

I like this brew with seafood. It has tradition and a unique brewing process that makes it an interesting choice.

UPDATED: MAR 3, 2003 I read once that the guy in charge of this brewery didn't much care for people he didn't know rating his beer. Well too bad, I sure as hell am not flying down to San Fran to introduce myself to the bastard. Well, he doesn't make a bad beer though. This is smack dab in the middle of the road: kinda malty, kinda hoppy...allright I lied, there's a hell of a lot more malt than hops. Actually now that I think of it, this may even be a bit unbalanced, I guess my impression is just that this is an average beer. Nice and warm and filling, but sweet and cloying and distracting. I feel like I should have this in one hand and a Sierra Nevada Pale in the other to wash down the malt. Get lost in a steamy anchor today.

Very good beer that pours well, drinks better with hoppy bitterness and a clean and refreshing finish. Citrusy, fruity overtones.

On Tap. Good appearance, not much nose at all, not really much flavor either - actually quite dull.

Semi sweet, dry finish, bronze color, lace thin, good head. Enough of this- It tastes, smells and looks great.
