3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours amber with nice tight tan head with good lacing. Perfume and some floral notes to the nose, and a little detergent smell that is suprisingly not offputting. Clean flavor with more flowers and ends with a pleasant hops aftertaste.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
It’s funny that the beer that’s the (modern) original for the style, the standard by which others are (should be?) judged, is currently only 4th on the list! Anyway, it has a great crystal malt base, substantial malty and slightly floral nose; pleasant crispy, clean bitterness, and a short, dry finish. Summer brew extrodinair, and overall great American original.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Brilliant golden amber with fine head. Sweet nose of cherry, peach, and some malt. Crisp, dry with light hop finish. Soft creamy mid-palate with a bread like quality. Great beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A sweet fruit aroma. Amber in color with little head. Has some good malt to it. Smooth and sweet feels great to drink. This beer has a good balance to it, I didn't notice overpowering hops or malts.

Damn right it better be good if I paid $9 for six of them. It was well worth it. Deep amber color, nice head, citrusy flavor. I found it to be a nice beer to relax by the lake with. If you can find it, more power to you.

Bottle. Deep amber color with a big white head. Spicey hop aroma with some citrus and malt backing. Clean and refreshing. There’s some spiciness to it along with a nice crispness. It’s good, balanced, and yet not all that remarkable.

Just had this out of the bottle at Al’s Airport Inn next to Trenton-Mercer Airport. Already had a couple beers of different styles and this was the last one. Might have affected the taste. Very good though, have to try it out again on its own

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2008 [12 oz. bottle] Poured a deep amber color with a rapidly dissolving white head. Faint and slightly floral aroma with a nice hop base. Initial taste is slightly floral and citrusy with a hoppy backbone and a smooth hop finish that leaves a slightly citrusy and sweet taste in your mouth.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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!!!!!&
