Sweet, but slight hoppiness lost the balance this beer may have had. Nothing special here.

This beer helped start the craft movement, Thankd Fritz. Great beer. Clean and soft rounded mouthfeel. Some Nice malt body with Wholehop flower nose. Definite cascade and noble aspects. Extremely clean and slight sweetness. A world Classic California common. Except stay away from the Plastic bottle Turns a great beer into a PVC tasting shadow of itself.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The bottle poured a beautiful polished amber liquid with a small rocky white head. The head dissipated quickly leaving only a ring of bubbles around the rim of the glass and no lacing. The aroma was fresh, sweet, and fruity; mainly malt sweetness with a hint of banana. Contrary to what the aroma promised, the initial flavor impression was of bitter hops with a dry, somewhat astringent mouth feel. The malt sweetness came out briefly in the middle while the finish left a warmth in the back of the throat.

damn good beer! I first had this in the late 70s. I liked it right off and I didn’t know jack about it then. But I can say that it’s remained the same, purnt near as I can tell, all down thru these ages. Wish Fritz was a girl so I could hit on him (her) or whatever. Just no insects please. Anyway, the beer is an artwork in the cross of lager and ale in the medium department. Pale ale that wants to be a larger lager or a larger ale that wants to be a lager. Have one and dwell on it. Ok, Fritz, if you wear a dress, I won’t be too critical, just don’t talk much.... and wear a high neck dress

pours ruby red with small fizzy head. Sweet floral/candy aroma. Interesting light non-hoppy taste. Alittle watery and overcarbonated for me. Overall an ok beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Fizzy, white head diminishing. Very light body. Caramel with vinous undertones, unique overall flavor. Slightly bitter on the finish. A well crafted classic; can restore your faith in beer after a sampling a few drainpours
