3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 29, 2004 (Draught)
The beer dispenses from the tap a slightly hazy reddish-amber color; the head is modest in size and frothy in texture, the color a light tan, with a nice sheet of lace. Nose is crisp and sweet malt, fresh and clean with the start nicely malt and somewhat sweet, top is middling in its feel to the palate. Finish is crisp in its acidity, the hops pleasantly spicy, dry aftertaste, a nice Arizona summer beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
On Tap: A very stiff small bubbly offwhite head sat atop a deep reddish-brown mahogany colored beer with some nice lacing. The aromas were of citrus, malts, pine, lemon. The flavor was light with some hops and very smooth sweet mouthfeel. Almost a fruity and maple syrup taste. I assumed it was an amber ale or an irish ale, kind of suprised to see an ale categorization it tasted a little like and ESB to me.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Amber color. Lovely, rich, complex, mostly hoppy aroma with malts balancing it out. Wonderful mildly bitter hoppy flavor with sugars in it. Just lovely. Makes you pay attention. It's not passive (thoug it's not as aggressive as something, say, from Stone (and I mean that with ALL due respect to that wonderful brewery!)). Very good.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Coppery red with medium off-white head. Sweet malty aroma. Taste is fairly smooth, very accessible, but with decent maltiness. Well-balanced, with good body and a touch of bitterness in the swallow.
