3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The aroma is malty with some light fruitiness and woody notes form the Northern Brewer hops. It is a fairly clear amber with a creamy head. The flavor has a clean maltiness, a little caramel, a pronounced bitterness and some woodiness in the finish. The body is medium and overall it is a refreshing beer.

I love this beer. The hops hit you when you aren't expecting and the aftertaste is great.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A strange style. Hops can be detected but dont stand out. Faint aroma, apperance is golden/copper colored. Kind of bland but still not bad. Give it a try anyway!

An amber beer with a fine head. The aroma is slightly malty and the flavor is slightly acidic with a soft malty tone. Really a great tasting beer.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
mostly malt on the nose with mild black peppery hops. Deep amber color, head left town leaving me with only some off white lace coating the sides of my glass. Starts with pale malty flavors and a watery sour taste i don't really care for. continuous hop presence throughout the beer with a dry finish. A bit of mild late hop bitterness.

Excellent - but I must qualify that by saying that I had it on tap - which is always better. Great taste, color and aroma - highly recommended!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A semi clear brew with a very tempting bouquet and a nice - not over done - head. The flavor is fruity and a bit too sweet. There could definetely be more hops in it.

Beautiful yellow/orange slightly cloudy color. Thin head. Light hop nose, pleasant. Nicely balanced taste between hops and malt up front which lingers a while. One of my favorite American beers. If you have the chance, visit the brewery out in San Francisco. Reserve well in advance, they only take about 15 people per day. A very informative tour with lots of free samples at the end. If you like this beer out of the bottle, it's to die for on tap.
