DKlovesbeer (172) - Sarasota, Florida, USA - APR 4, 2004
Light red copperish body with a quickly dissipating off-white head. Flavor has weak malt and light hops characteristics, unfortunately the bland, somewhat sour finish is unsatisfying. Very average beer. I wouldn't bother buying this one again. Does have nice packaging though.

hotstuff (4092) - Indiana, USA - JAN 3, 2004
Bottled. Not much to this beer and nothing special about it in my opinion. A small sized off-white head with fine-medium sized bubbles that quickly dissipated. The body was transparent and softly carbonated with an orange hue. The nose was malty, light hops and sweet. The flavor was sweet, somewhat tart and tangy and light hops. The mouthfeel was smooth and tingly. This was a light-medium bodied beer with very sparse lacing on the sides of my glass.

thedm (4935) - Fort Wayne, USA - JAN 3, 2004
This bottled ale poured a medium sized head of mostly diminishing white colored fine to medium sized bubbles that left behind a softly carbonated transparent light brown colored body and a fair lace. The aroma reminded me of a campfire and burnt wood rather smokey. The mouthfeel was tingly and smooth from start to finish while the flavor was metallic roasted caramel and malty.

blank (996) - Austin, Texas, USA - DEC 28, 2003
a below average blonde ale. but then again i had it at a bowling alley, so i'm not suprised. Rather thin and tastless, but better then the normal swill.

matta (1140) - Tampa, Florida, USA - DEC 7, 2003
I had this on tap last night, I wanted something I had never had and was totally skeptical about the quality of this beer. I was presently surprised though, much better than I had anticipated.
Poured a deep mahogany body with a creamy tan head. The aroma and flavor were buttery & nutty, quite malty and toasty; a small dose of hops help to round of the finish. The palate was surprisingly creamy, medium body; Man, this could have been far worse than it was.

DragonStout (1408) - Pickerington, Ohio, USA - NOV 7, 2003
A dark red color when poured.HAs hoppiness notes with some sourness.It was sort of watery also.Not impressed.This was borderline crap beer.

TheBeerGod (5254) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - SEP 26, 2003
Pours a reddish brown with a medium tan head. Nose is malted but almost has a tartness about it. The taste is much better than the Pilsner Light. Sweetened malty notes along with a corn/rice body. It's not too bad, actually. Finishes with more of the tartness. I'm not sure if this was designed, because the bottle is still fresh, so I don't think it's an unfreshness side-effect. Decent nonetheless.

EddieG (169) - Palos Heights, Illinois, USA - SEP 23, 2003
The beer appears average. Decent head and virtually no aroma. Similar to the lager, the taste has a weird metallic tang to it. Initally thought infection, but the same taste permeated throughout the draft and numerous attempts at other bottles.

clvand0 (350) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - JUL 10, 2003
This beer pours a light amber color with a medium head and little lacing on the glass. The aroma is fairly hoppy and a little sweet. The taste is very light and a little sweet with some different spices thrown in to make it interesting. This beer drinks easily and is light enough to down several without any problem. Not sure if they are available outside of the Keys - had mine while on vacation in Key West.

MMM...Beer (385) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUN 14, 2003
Overall a good beer. Nice hint of sweetness. Plays well on the palate. I wouldn't pay the price it usually sells at, but I'd definitely take a glass from a friend who's buying.
