Bottle - aroma of hops and soap. A pretty copper colored body with a white head. The flavor is odd. I know that they claim to use like 11 different hops in some of their beers and I wonder if something like that is the case here, too. There are a bunch of hops here, but I canít really even discern a flavor style in them. Just a general bitterness. Far from spectacular, but certainly better than any of their others.

Unappealing color. Strange almost medicinal flavor. This beer is drinkable but not interesting; Surprisingly flat. --- BeerBuddy personal rating!

Bottle to glass. Dumpy brown color, no head, not much mouth interest, tastes like marinade. I won't be buying this one again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Decent offering from AB, but nothing special. Clean finish, some hints of barley and bread in the finish. Not much malt flavor as stated in the description but not too bad

Tasted on tap at Grantís Farm in tumbler. Clear, light golden color with creamy white foam. Nice hops aroma. I did some research, and sure, itís made by Anheuser Busch. So what? I think itís great theyíre brewing with 100% certified organic barley (which means all-malt, as opposed to most of their beers), 100% certified organic hops (which is an important distinction--many "organic" brewers cheat on this, arguing that hops are an insignificant percentage of the recipe,) and 100% recycled glass, paper, and cardboard for the packaging. Plus it tastes pretty good for a macro light lager as well. I bet AB would have done better to really OWN this concept, marketing it as a Green Budweiser, for instance.

Pours deep amber into a shaker. Bright white head with medium retention recedes to skim surface. Butterscotch aromas. Sweet caramel and bread from front to back. Mild banana and resin finish.

Clear amber pour with a fizzy head. Light malt and hop aroma. Flavor is the same. Not much to say about this.

DuffMan (6462) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 17, 2010
Bottle. Talk about marketing strategy: quaint picture on the label suggestive of simpler pastoral times, "Green Valley"in the name, and ‹SDA certified" organic blah blah blah. Pours a light amber gold, average head. Sweet grainy aroma, caramel undertones. Flavour is pretty much the same, minimal fruity hop presence. More like an amber ale, and a rather lackluster one at that.

Pours a light copper. The head went away too quickly. The smell is faint. Malt, no hops. Real fruity, almost like apple juice or something. The taste is odd. Super malty to me, and the afore mentioned fruit is there in a big way. There is an OK hop bite on the finish, but itís nothing to write home about. Oh well, itís one more that I have tried, but I wonít pick it up again. I canít put my finger on it. Itís not that itís that bad, but I just donít really like anything about it.
