3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice bread-yeasty nose, nice color and thick, though small head; flavor and palate are on the bland side, but not unpleasant. Only worth it on sale in these parts.

Toasty, bread-like nose, with a similarly described flavor to follow. White-wine-like taste... or maybe more champagne-like? Definitely fizzy and effervescent, with a subtle warming sensation. Fairly well crafted. Had a ’salty’ flavor that I found interesting, but at the same time, unappealing.

Decent beer, but not always worth the price.

Little aroma. Not much head. Mediocre amber hue. Flavor is malty smoothness with nice finish. Hops are there, but way in the background, just adding a little stability to the subdued sweetness. Nothing great, but agreeable. Not sure if this would be a good sessions beer since it may get sweet after awhile.

OK, I’m going to go a little higher in my rating on this beer than everyone else: I think this is a perfectly spiffy brew. I’d much rather have this bottled than a Sam Adams on draft, say (and, by the way, I love this Grolsch style of bottle). Lovely color; not exactly a complex flavor, but exceedingly pleasant. Worth checking out!

I have always enjoyed this beer. Very nice and mellow malt taste.

UPDATED: FEB 13, 2003 Aroma has some faint caramel malt and breadiness, but also some chemicals, none too appealing. Light amber color and lots of effervescence, head is a bit frothy. Flavor is sweet and malty but not strongly so, with a bit of caramel sweetness on the finish. Little discernible bitterness. Palate is fairly watery, body is equally light. I can't believe once upon a time I actually kind of enjoyed this stuff. How times change!

Very clean nose. Maltiness is apparent from the middle on. Alot lighter than it looks or pretends to be but with enough body to be interesting. Somewhat sour if you pay attention.
