3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
It's been too long since I've had this beer. Nice floral hoppy nose. Has a nice amber color. Tangy hop character dominates, crisp and clean in the finish. It leaves with a bitter dry aftertaste. A beer that would be great with a seafood paring. Yes it is a little overpriced but still a good beer.

I have to say I prefer the draft version over the bottle, although the bottle has nicer lacing.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2003 An interesting beer. Deep orange body and a medium fast disappearing head. Malty nose. Hoppy and malty flavor. Very nice hop bitter aftertaste. Smooth palate.

The beer that was immortalized in the NOFX song Scavenger Type. I'm not quite sure it was worth 13 quarters myself. It has a solid mildly hoppy taste to it. But that sharp bitter aftertaste is a bit too much for me.

It has been a while since I've had this beer. It is still a very good beer. I love the clean crisp flavor that melds a nice hop bitterness and mild hop flavor with some malt background. The finish is a little bitter but not to bitter that it distracts from the overall flavor. A very good beer that I had before and will enjoy again in the future.

Beautiful color. Not too carbonated. The aroma is vaguely melon like. The taste has the same melon quality. Overall, an impressive beer. I'll have more in the future.

Dark gold, white head. Nose is mostly floral hops, taste is a nearly balanced mixture of floral and citrus hops and sweet caramel malt. An average beer with a high price tag.

UPDATED: NOV 1, 2004 I searched a long time to find this beer in Philly. It is ledgendary in Dirk Pitt novels and I finally found it and purchased 2 six packs $12.00 each. I really wanted to love this beer but I was a bit disappointed at the aftertaste. Upon opening the bottle I was excited when I took in the sweet aroma and the deep caramel appearance which reminded me of Yuengling Lager. The head looks dark & frothy. The flavor was strong but bitter and an aftertaste that reminded me of Schlitz which we used to buy when we just wanted to drink cheap in the 70’s. I could have really enjoyed this beer if not for the after taste. If I want bitter I would have an ale but all the senses leading up to the taste were highly superior.

After 500 ratings what else is there to say. Nice amber color with a wonderful scent. Clean and refreshing, this can be drunk at any part of the year and it will satisfy
