3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A very fragrant floral hop aroma that goes from start to finish. Very clean malt flavor, but a little heavy on the hopping.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very light yellow amber.
white thick head that lingers for awhile. Surprising lacing [at least to me]
Light slightly fruity malt aroma.
Crisp light malty flavor with some hop element.
Could be a session beer, but probably better on a hot sunny summer day, not a cool autumn evening.

UPDATED: MAY 29, 2003 For a US pilsner this is not too bad, and I really shouldn't be surprised when I see the effort put into their Double Barrel. Well-balanced, combining sweet honey-ish malts and a moderately bitter crisp hoppiness.

Medium gold with a small white head, prominent malty/yeasty nose. Malt character is sweet and slightly fruity, has more substance and good hops presence for a lager. Overall a pleasant, drinkable lager.

Head is initially small, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing.
Body is medium yellow.
Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain/bread), lightly hoppy (flowers), with a light note of lemon zest.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately bitter.
Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
Clean, nicely balanced, decent rendition of a light golden lager; if only BMC beers were up to this standard.

Decent beer on tap. Had it on tap at Tony Roma’s across the street from Disneyland. The park is a much more interesting place after a few pints of this. I found myself singing along with the pirates.
