A slightly roasted malt gives it a light amber color. The rich flavor dominates the malt/hops balance and is very popular among most beer drinkers.

oh6gdx (25207) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 14, 2010
Bottled@The 1st Vaasa CS/ES beer session (thanks SV!). Pale goldeny amber colour with a small white head. Aroma is caramel malts, some slight wooden notes, barnyard as well as mild notes of herbs. Flavour is caramel malts, some slight earthy notes, mild nuts as well as some wooden notes. Not a winner, but not a total loser either.

Koelschtrinker (16806) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 16, 2011
Schmeckt erstmal ziemlich komisch! Die Geschmäcke überrollen einen quasi! Zuerst unglaublich malzig, dann verdammt fruchtig, ich will mich da gar nicht auf eine Frucht festlegen, der Nachgeschmack ist mit seinem herben Geschmack dagegen fast schon langweilig. Dieses Bier ist absolute Geschmackssache, mir will es nicht so richtig munden. Aber interessant ist es allemal! Test vom 13.6.2005, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 9,6,6,9,7,7 - 7,20

Oakes (15490) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 23, 2003
Bright amber colour. Thin layer of lasting foam. Sweet caramel aroma with faint wood, diacetyl. Light body. Some alcohol notes, vague caramel. Fizzy finish. Bland.

bhensonb (13985) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 25, 2007
Brown bottle - see the illustration to the left. Light aroma of grassy hop. Sort of a lager smell. Brassy gold color. Sort of a mass produced lager color. Huge frothy white head that laces. Ok, not a lager thing. Medium body. Fruity flavor, and not a great deal of malt. Ok, it’s not lager. The sweetness tends to fade, the finish is relatively dry, and there is some bitter. There is light floral all over this. I am impressed. Based on BeerBelcher’s experience: Don’t buy it, unless it looks somewhat like the picture. Hey, it’s fun to push the wires!

Tmoney99 (13340) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 17, 2006
Bottle from MI. Clear light amber pour with an average frothy white head that diminished quickly. Medium caramel malt aroma. Light to medium body with soft carbonation. Average sweet flavor with a moderate finish. Good looking bottle for an below average amber ale.

Ratman197 (13094) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - DEC 22, 2005
Bottle poured a clear amber with a large, lasting white head. Aromas of cereal, hops, and a bit of sourness. Palate was light and smooth. Flavors of sweet malt and a hint of hops with a smooth, slightly bitter finish.

argo0 (13069) - Washington DC, USA - APR 10, 2002
It’s not a bad beer, but its strength lies in re-using those great swingtops for homebrewing. Nothing distinctive about it, mild aroma, mild taste, mild aftertaste.

imdownthepub (13040) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2004
Bottled, pasteurised. Reddish amber with bubbly, gassed head. Despite the gassiness of the beer there is a surprising amount of flavour, all malt really, but there is a certain charm to it. Presentable.

(500ml bottle, courtesy of Swalden 28) Pours a clear yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of corn, grain, soap, and mustiness. Flavor of toasted grain and grass with a dry, metallic finish.

22oz bottle-pours a foamy off white head and gold color. Aroma is light/medium fruit-including apple, malt/grain. Taste follows, some adjuncts? Easy drinking. Mild carbonation.
