4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle, best before May 08. Golden amber colour with a mostly lasting rich creamy and frothy beige head. Bready, toffee, orange, and grapefruit aroma. Bready and lightly sweet malts, a touch of toffee flavour, then a juicy grapefruit and orange peel bitter finish. Light to medium bodied and combines the crispness of a lager with the juiciness of an IPA. Good stuff - I want more.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
pint - Aroma is mild malts with a touch of hops. Pours transparent gold with a small bubbly head and great lacing. Flavor is strong with sweet malts and the hops are more pronounced. Clean palate. Drinkable on a hot day and really not a bad brew.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
July 2005 - This beer pours with a nice foamy head and a nice clear brown lager color. But letís get down to it. Itís hoppy. The hopheads will like it because of this. I think itís kind of lacking other than having more hops than a normal lager. The taste is a little on the thin side and frankly I find the hoppy taste out of place in a lager like this.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a clear light copper with a small but lasting head and minimal lace. Very nice aroma, malty and crispy. Taste is perfectly balanced - sweet without that sickly honey flavour, perfectly set against crisp floral/citrus hops ending in a dry finish. Creamy body with perfect carbonation. This is an excellent lager, both drinkable and appreciable.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: NOV 19, 2007 Re-rate. Bottle. Sweet hop nose with grassy malts. Deep clear gold slow but active carbonation drifting towards a big frothy head. Wonderful smooth palate. Full bodied but not heavy. Flavor is dry bitter citrus peel. Such a nice beer for all occasions. Upped flavor and overall score after a few bottles of this reminded me that it is possibly the perfect session beer for me.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The most impressive, widely available beer regularly served in the tri-state regionís pubs and bars. Pours a clear amber-brown with a solid off-white head that fades to a consistent cap. Great lacing. The aroma is fresh and floral with fruit undertones of banana and sweet, bready malts. The flavour is deliciously floral, citrusy and bitter, with a biting hoppy aftertaste that lingers for a while on the back of your tongue. Caramelized fruits are also evident in the aftertaste. The nice dry finish dries the sides of the mouth. The body is medium with a suitable, tingly carbonation.

UPDATED: SEP 16, 2008 excellent beer. I had it out of a bottle in Florida and was impressed by how well it poured and its overall light brown appearance. The flavor is strong yet smooth and has a great aftertaste. I would reccomend in a bar setting, especially during the evening.

One of my favorites. This is for me was the epihany of lagers. I remember when I was 19 first tasting this and saying, "wow!" Really enjoyable, truly a everyday beer - great with many foods....simply put -> buy a case and never be disappointed.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle: Pours an amber gold wtih a thin off white head that quickly diminishes. Fruity aroma has hints of floral and a mild hop character. Malty flavor has hints of citrus, dry fruits with a touch of caramel. Finishes well with no lingering aftertaste like other lagers. A good everyday beer to keep in the fridge.
