Smells a bit strange like dirty socks, but taste was pretty good. Sweet and fruity almost like you’re drinking a sweet white wine. Color is a nice apricot amber. No bitterness, but a light acidic fruity finish.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear copper appearance, decent head formation. Light malt, doughy, grainy aroma. Smooth, sweet malt palate, light caramel and cookie dough, mildly hoppy, citirc innthe finish. Pretty light and simple but I could down a 6-pack of this pretty easily.

UPDATED: JUL 20, 2004 This has the taste of toasted bread with burnt edges in the malts and a pleasantly hoppy finish. Body is almost watery though.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light hoppy aroma. Malt flavor is harsh and grainy. Hop flavor is thinnish and reedy. Thin bodied, with a mercifully brief finish.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
AMber color with a quickly diminished ecru head. Malt house aromas, along with brown sugar and molassas. Starts thick, sweet and malty. Ends thin, bitter, acidic and astringent. Nothing in the linger makes you want to have any more.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2008 Pours a deep amber with a tan head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is grassy and sweet. Complex malt flavor that is in my opinion unbalanced. This is definitely a brew for "maltmouths".

copper color, with an initial head towering above my glass that subsides very quickly. fruity yeast, initial bitterness that subsides to a yeasty woody thin middle with some light finishing grapefruity hops. too thin for my liking
