Very similar to English ales, but slighlt less hopped and slightly less bitter. Reasonable beer.

I canít believe people have rated this so highly. Nothing worth drinking here. No distinguishing good taste.

Great bottle. Refreshing, fruity, hoppy. A little too non-dememo for me, but a solid drink. Glad I tried it.

This stuff was way too hoppy for my tastes. It looks good, but itís just not my style.

Michael Jackson puts this in list of the Top 10 American Beers. Itís a decent, hoppy West Coast example of a well-brewed craft micro.

I dig this beer. Its not overly hopped and has nice balance leaning towards the malts. When I need a lighter style and refreshing beer - I go for this brew.

Rich, malty-sweet, but also bitter brew.Full head, amber color. Very well made. Great balance of flavors from one of the originals.

Malty, caramel aroma, auburn, big toffee head. Malt flavour with good bitterness. Sweet, smooth and creamy. Very pleasant drink.

I had this off the tap at dinner tonight. Not bad, considering that Iím not generally a fan of amber beers. It was fizzier than I like, but the nutty taste and finish were okay. Rather overpriced, though. Comment 4/28/02: Had a bottle of it tonight at a wedding banquet. Iím not changing any of the scores, but the bottled version seemed different, almost as if it were a darker beer than what I previously got from the tap. I think I actually liked it a bit better from the bottle.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Strong yeasty aroma with a thin and quickly dissapating head. Very carbonated and sharp flavor. Pleasent but not something I would buy again.
