MaxPower (961) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 1, 2004
Clear golden color with a small white head that doesn't last very long, no lacing. Bready, grainy and flowery aromas, starts sweet and bready with nice balanced hop bitterness, light bodied, somewhat of a thin and watery mouthfeel, finishes clean and crisp, another good one from this brewery.

ClarkVV (3892) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 27, 2003
Smells very strong of apple. Bit of crisp hops; mainly apples though. Looks unimpressive. Very clear, light apple juice color, moderate head that disappears quickly. Starts out very appley. Yes, I feel this beer is overdone with apples. That fluffy/doughy yeast strain is all you really taste, I guess there is a touch of peppery hops, maybe tettnang or chinook or something, not much whatever it is. Malt is hardly evident, maybe a touch of honey-like taste. Extremely light bodied, finishes with a sourish yeasty flavor. I've had worse. Carbonation is medium.

Jedsbrew (465) - Rhineland, Missouri, USA - OCT 15, 2003
This brew was yellow/gold in color with a minimal head and a ring lacing that lasted a couple of swigs anyway. Mild malty and yeasty dough aroma, sweet. Light to medium bodied, with some soft dinner roll and honey flavors, and a "kiss of the hops" as they say. Just perfectly balanced, fresh and subtle with a smooth and dryish finish.

krisbierjaeger (844) - dolores, Colorado, USA - SEP 29, 2003
golden as backlit autumn aspens, head was a pure blinding white like the tablecloth in a fine french restaurant-- but alas, just as thin as that tablecloth. crisp shredded lettuce aroma, bagel chips, with the vaguest hint of ginger. not altogether attractive, i decided after lengthy sniffing-- really too close to a macro lager for me to judge comfortably. snappy and quenching on the tongue, with filtered honey-bread flavor asride an equally subtle virtual-mirage of hop counterpoint. not up to a good czech or german lager, but, as my attention waned and i began scarfing potato chips, i enjoyed how the beer washed them down. who 'atwater' might be is not revealed on the label, but if he brewed this up expecting a huge flavorful beer, we can certainly understand his subsequent 'hell'.

SubstanceT (1092) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 19, 2003
Big head and almost clear yellow colour to it. Malty and grainy or bready. Not bad but didnt quite do anything spectacular for me.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - SEP 3, 2003
Sweet and bready with hints of lime and fruits - great malt flavors. Hops are dry and dirty along the sides of the tongue. This is good stuff.

jsquire (3479) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - SEP 2, 2003
Golden beer with big white head poured out of a bottle. Very clean drinking beer; almost dry. Full mouthfeel with an almost ale fruitiness to it. Nice hop bitterness in the finish. Very enjoyable.

ultraspank (867) - Alverca, Lisboa, PORTUGAL - AUG 30, 2003
Average frothy white head, average lasting with no lacing. Pours a light sparkling straw. The nose is light perfume and very grainy, fresh but very light. The flavor is surprising nice toasty malt tones, balance and hops presence at finish. The light and creamy palate is lively and finishes clean.

aobecksy (700) - Middle of no where, Ohio, USA - AUG 30, 2003
smells like green apples, nice color, great head--looks and acts like a beer should; a tad watered down and over carbonated.

3.4
   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
TAR (2499) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - AUG 30, 2003
Speckled pale golden. Large round retentive bubbles. Strawlike aroma of honeyed pale malts, apple skins, white grape and zesty german hop undertones. Round, fizzy mouthfeel. Lightly acidic and dry. Flavors of flowers, phenols, and mustiness, countered by a healthy malt doseage. Finishes sweet, with lots of straw-like malts and lively snappy hops. It's well-balanced, but could benefit from a fuller body and crisper feel.
