muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - NOV 25, 2001
UPDATED: APR 3, 2003 Certainly not terrible, like most of the brewer's other products, this is nonetheless a very dull unmemorable pretend-red-ale with average 'beery' nose, slight hop/fruit presence, little body, and just enough maltiness so you know they're trying to fool you. Yes, there are some bars where this (or Heineken) is the best beer; no, there's no reason you need to visit them.

RE-RATE (why? free!) blech. Even more bland than I remember it, and some nasty wet-cardboardy stuff at the end. But still miraculously good compared to Coors and Coors Light!

One of the best red beers out there. Best damn beer Coors makes.

I gave this a 2.5 on 3/29/01. This looks nice but it doesn’t taste of much.

Not the greatest beer, but nice to have few in the fridge.

Ataru (8) - USA - NOV 11, 2001 does not count
Not a lot of flavor, but no complaints about what’s there. The appearance doesn’t do much for me. An OK beer.

kingstratego (82) - Grävenwiesbach, GERMANY - NOV 8, 2001
Strong aroma and taste. No long lasting palate, but hey! It’s a lager. Really nice to have one or two, but I think not the right beer to drink the whole evening.

lizziesage (180) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 7, 2001
Very average. Lacking in large flavor while still vaguely hitting the style. Something different from the big US boys but ultimately forgettable.

A good beer. The first few sips are generally rough to handle, but after that it tastes great. Do not drink this beer to get drunk. It is notorious for hangovers, and it will give you excessive raunchy gas the day after. Higher rating if not for these side-effects.
