Bottle, Beers of Europe. Muddy orange amber colour, thin whiteish head. Sweetish mandarin aroma. Some fruit and hops in the flavour, but at 4.3% lacking any real clout. Vaguely above average I íspose.

PhillyHomeBrew (176) - Forest Hills, New York, USA - JUL 7, 2008
Body is dark yellowish brown with very little head. The aroma is sweet like a mixture of honey, flowers, lemon and orange. The flavor is fairly sweet as well, but kind of watery tasting without a whole lot of carbonation (might just be the tap) . There is a malty flavor with a bit of orange and lemon. Not much hops.

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.

Has nice red tint color, Not overpowering on the hops,I sure it would be better on tap. Was expceting a little more hop to come out.

Not a bad beer, but they make a few better ones at their brewery. It has a better nose than taste, but itís nose is pretty good.

I need to try again for sure. Had what seemed like an old one at the airpotr in Chicago. people need to be moer proud of the local brew, especially when the other chioce is millebucoors. This might not be great, but is a good, well brewed beer.

zborgerd (187) - Illinois, USA - DEC 13, 2002
Good malt and hops cobination leaves this sweet, spicy and toasted. Well balanced for an American pale, in which the style tends to be over-hopped. Light citrus and yeast taste. Not exceptional, but a good brew.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - DEC 22, 2002
Bottled. Light-medium amber, little head. Nse has caramel, somewhat roast, some fruity hoppiness. Flavor is reasonably hoppy, but thatís about it; very little sweetness, and rather dry and lacking in malt. Fizzy on the end, but a decent long finish.

Nuffield (3639) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - APR 7, 2003
Attractive hop aroma, with a hint of fresh-brewed tea. Broadly fruity flavor (grape) and more tea. Slightly limp, lacks a certain richness and depth on the tongue. Golden/amber/red color, clinging head, lingering rounded bitterness. (on tap, Goose Island, Clybourn, Chicago)
