Amber color. The aroma is light, with malt and hop. The flavor is much better, with a reasonable combination of malt, hop and caramel. Nothing special, but pleasant.

argo0 (11533) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 16, 2006
(12oz bottle) Crystal clear amber body with pillowy, small beige head. Aroma is medium sweet, caramel, some earthy, faint Pine Sol. Taste is medium sweet, caramel, cereal, light earthy. Light metallic astringency in the finish. Light-medium body. I could get on a rant about how I was deceived, not realizing I had bought an AB product. I could laugh at them for charging a premium rate for a beer that has nothing to offer. Or I could simply rate this beer in a manner that properly reflects its quality. ’Nuff said.

12 oz bottle-pours a white head and gold/amber color. Aroma is citrus hops. Taste is citrus hops with some bite and bitterness. Best A-B product I’ve had, even if they don’t do it in their name.

bhensonb (11060) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 22, 2006
Pleasant aroma of malt and hop. Nothing too strong. Bright coppery amber color with a very pronounced light tan head. There’s even a bit of lacing. Starts with a floral hop and malt combined taste. The malt persists, the hop really does not. Pretty good though. A bit thin on mouthfeel. And some hop does linger. Heck of an effort from the dark side. Next to Pacific Ridge Pale Ale this could be the giant’s second best product.

Tmoney99 (10660) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 11, 2006
Bottle from Kroger. Pours a dark amber with an average rocky white head that diminished quickly with minimal lacing. Moderate sweet hoppy citrus aroma. Medium body with a thin texture. Moderate sweet small bitter flavor with a short finish. Below average brew.

Lubiere (9999) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 30, 2007
A golden amber ale witha thick creamy off white head. Aroma of sweet caramel and fruity esters. In mouth, a decent malt, a bit too sweet, but with a decent hopping, very British and understated. From AB, this isnt too bad. If it was a buck a beer, it would be decent.

Ratman197 (9800) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - NOV 22, 2006
Bottle poured a clear copper amber with a small lasting ivory head. Aromas of bread, light citrus and a hint of carmel. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of bread, light carmel and a hint of orange with a moderatly bitter finish.

hopscotch (9158) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 14, 2006
Bottle... Clear, yellow ale with a mid-sized, fluffy, white head. Earthy, herbal hop aroma. Leans just a touch on the bitter side of balance. Medium-bodied and fizzy. Crisp, mildly bitter finish.
