Earthy grassy smell some peanut notes and an almost burnt malt scent. White head and flat orange body. some grassy hops and malty bitterness little metallic dust. Weak and dusty on the palate. A lot of metallic taste in the end.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Aromas of salted peanuts, corn cereal, and a little hamster-cage-esque. Clear sunset gold with a mostly fading, off-white head. Dry and toasty. Light, clean, refreshing, but not much happening here.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Overall, aroma is great. Smells of hay and light hops, but taste leaves something to be desired. A bit sharp on the tongue,

Bottle. Poured a clear light orange color. The head was thick and white with good retention. Smelled of hay, subdued vanilla, and grassy hop. Light to medium bodied and dry with minimal bitterness. Pale malt, grassy hop, and delicate caramel flavors.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
From a 12 oz bottle it poured a cloudy orange with little head. Aroma of citrus, malt and some hops - taste was fairly sweet for a lager and not quite as skunky as some lagers come across. I actually didn’t mind this brew too much - it was actually better than I was expecting especially after seeing some of the ratings. I liked it better than their hefeweizen.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle from thickfreakness. Thanks Charles! Pours orange, clear and with a white head. Smell is fruity, almost chocolatey and malty. Taste is sweet and odd with rotten fruit and yeast with thin watery caramel sweetness. Thin body. Pretty gross, actually.

Thanks to my brother Bob who had this in his fridge Super Bowl Sunday and not noticing I took it and placed it in my cooler. Poured an off golden color. Decent head and carbination to start with, but it faded to a few bubbles after a few minutes. Standard lager flavor.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Slightly copper tinted golden/orange coloured body with a thin white head. Aroma of lemons, wheat, malt, corn and some apples. Light-bodied; Sharp taste of metal and malt up front with a short mild taste of some hops, coupled with a slight fruity taste. Aftertaste shows more bitter metal, some malt and basically just a light cardboardy taste. Overall, a pretty bad beer, not much flavour at all, and the flavour that does come up isn’t worth talking about. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased at Norm’s in Vienna, Virginia on 05-November-2006.
