Sour light notes. Slight hops with a pale flavor. Nothing really remarkable about this. Better than water, I guess.

Samís Club B.S!!!!!! You were fooled into buying this crap!! Use the wooden box as a CD case. Donít drink too fast, the swill will make you puke. GIMMICK BEER THAT I GARBAGE!!

Suttree (5195) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 17, 2002
UPDATED: APR 4, 2004 This was a nice surprise. I found this a part of 'Beers of America' 8-pack in a crate from Sam's Club. This was the best of the bunch. orange colored, sturdy white foam head, and assertive hops throughout. Crisp finish. Re-rate, April 2004 - Still the best of the box, but not quite as good as I originally thought.

nice historic label, which lured me to the cynical assumption that the beer was bogus; surprised to see therefore a cloudy amber-nectar looking pour. the head was only a footnote (har har) and the aroma modest with white grape and melon in a biscuity tort. light bodied but with a nice woody, peachy, caramelly thing that canít develop much sweetness ícause the hops dry it out before it hits mid -palatte. the hops are papery flat tho, not rich and resiny like anchorí steamís eager hoppy bitterness. still, it succeeds admirably as a brief denizen of my rapt attention.

A complex beer that has nice color and great taste. I think it has a nice balance that will keep people coming back for more.

Indra (2627) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - MAR 2, 2002
UPDATED: OCT 11, 2006 Color is medium orangey-copper. Effervescent, but with average size head. Slightly fruity aroma with a dash of hops. Flavor is largely malty, with some definite light fruity flavors, but then hop flavors are right on its heels. Finish is largely hoppy, and I would say this beer has good balance. Itís an interesting alternative to Anchor, and tastier than I was expecting given the contents of the rest of this box.

Aubrey (3443) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - FEB 18, 2002
Thirst-quenching malt flavor thatís very easy to drink. Some bready/nuttiness. Light, yet malty & hoppy, and seemingly well-balanced. Dry, clean finish. Good session beer.

Not labelled as a steam beer but I was certain thats what it was, both from aroma/flavor and hints on the label. (iceless fermentation, 1894 style, Gold Rush style beer, etc.). Anyway: light head, with copper color and med lacing. Aroma is strongly fruity -pear? Flavor is cleaner though, mainly bitter...an interesting contrast to the aroma.

Oakes (12743) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 7, 2002
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2009 Dull amber without much head. The aroma is caramel, abundant fields of grain and a light fruitiness. Palate is strange - like pear juice, with some caramel. Thereís a weirdness I canít put my finger on. The body is somewhat watery, and maybe a bit thin, but itís also doughy. Very strange. The finish is sweet, again with a somewhat innocuous pear juice note. When I first had this sample pack, 9 1/2 years ago, I kind of like this beer. Now, I really donít. The sweetness is mild and body sufficiently soft that it should be at least pleasant if not pleasing. But it isnít. Maybe itís too cloying. Maybe itís a bit strange, like dirty yeast or ancient brewing equipment strange. That might be it. This beer smacks of old Communist-era brewing equipment. Hmm.
