A light, watery amber color with a nose of cooking wort, this ale gets better as you drink it, but still does not excite me much. The long bitter finish is nice, it keeps lingering on.

Amber colour with a medium sized head. A lightly hoppy flavour, with a bitter dry finish.

Pjones6738 (500) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 9, 2002
Turned my stomach. Kind of a moldy, sour flavor. The first drain pour Iíve had in ages. If this is one of Chicagoís best beers, Iím really glad I donít live in Chicago.

Big rocky head fades down to nothing atop an amber colored brew. Smells mildly malty and slightly of cardboard. Sweet malty flavor pretty much runs throughout this brew. Tastes a little old. Even if it wasnít old, this tastes like a good beer that was watered down.

Medium caramel color. Not much head but a decent ílaceí for what head there was. Creamy. Good hops and a bit of a fruity finish. Not bad...not bad at all.

UPDATED: NOV 14, 2003 I thought this was a good all around ale. First time I drank this i was at work. Smooth with a good taste. Would rather have a PBR.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 22, 2002
Re-Rate 08/22/02: Clear copper in color, the head and lace are adequate. Nose is malt sweet, as is the front, top is light, the finish has a mild hop presence, the carbonation is light to moderate, somewhat dry, and a decent íSession Beerí. Ranks #766 on my current 1000 beer master list.

popilius (61) - Chicagoland, Illinois, USA - AUG 20, 2002
A somewhat hearty Midwestern ale. Itís honey-colored with a fine sweet finish. Good with Chicago pizza and hot dogs. High on carbonation, though.

I liked this stuff a lot actually. I had it on tap. Very pretty looking brew. It had a pleasantly sweet/fruity malt nose. Tastey, slightly bitter hops rounded this beer out well. Rerate: one of my favorite college hangouts just put this on tap and I am pumped! Great pitcher beer!
