Small offwhite head, short lived with a touch of lace. Clear copper color. Toffeeish nose, hints of fruit. Malty, caramelly brew. Not alot going on here. Some toasty notes, medium sweet finish.

Slighly hazy amber body. Over carbonayed. Massive foamy head and very lively particles. Sweet and hoppy aroma. Pine mainly. Hoppy citrus flavor, mainly orange rather than the expected graefruit. Over carbonated mouth-felel really detracts from things. Tone the carbonation and a decent session beer lurks in the bottle, as it is, it is too fizzy to be a session beer.

pivo (2542) - GERMANY - JUN 5, 2004
Nothing special here: doughy nose, pours with a huge fizzy head, cloudy orange-brown color. Light fruity malt body. Not getting the hop character I expected from a PA and there is a cardboardy aftertaste. Was this sample infected or off somehow? I suspect that might be the case. Will have to re-rate.

YogiBeera (2435) - Hamburg, GERMANY - MAY 24, 2004
I expected more - Deep orange colored brew, liveley carbonation. Rocky off white lasting head. Very light dough nose. Kind of soapy taste. Oily light - weak hop taste. Chalky aftertaste. WEIRD beer.

Before i start i have to say i might be a little bias, this brew being from my home town has kinda grown with me. Thanks to jeff for getting this beer to me all the way out here in oregon. Pours a nice amber color with a great off-white head. The beer is very clear and the head stays for quite a while. Aroma is malty and very sweet. Taste is nice and malty with a slight amout of hops that give a very slightly bitter end. Sort of a spice or fruit taste to it. Dry and smooth. I love this beer. I alway enjoy wearing my cisco brewery sweatshirt around oregon.

Deep golden/amber color. Aroma is sweet malt and caramel. Taste is a little flat, with some hops. Not too bad, but a little pricey for what you get

BBB63 (5741) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - APR 19, 2004
Bottled conditioned with a hazy orangy hue and a big frothy head, excellent lace. The aroma hints of grapefruit, orange, lime, moderate sweet malts, and earthy yeast esters. The taste starts acidic and fruity with an orange rind and lime twist on top. Subdued bitterness and chalky yeast undertones. The mouthfeel is soft and dry. This beer is so tart it could pass for a fruit beer, strangely refreshing.

BennyTicklez (621) - USA - APR 18, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 4, 2005 A good pale ale, with a golden color along with a tannish head. Strong in flavor and price. It’s Cisco’s flagship, so it’s easier to find somewhat than their other beers.

A good strong beer. Some salty undertones which are quite intriguing. A medium, toned color. A vivid aroma that makes its presence constantly known.
