I had heard so many great things about this beer, so I gave it a shot. Not overly impressed by any means, but didn’t dislike it. It’s kinda complex, with lots of flavors going on, but mainly a roasted hop thing, that’s not great, but not bad.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: OCT 19, 2007 Orange-amber, think looking body. Big, thick, white bubbly head. Smells really good: sweet and fragrant, florally so with some abrosia and sweet caramel. Taste is medium bodied, malt-centric; cherry, bananna, grape, honey and dry, grapefruit hop finish. Aftertaste is a little cloying from all the sweet flavors, making it uncomfortable on the throat. This beer provoked my friend Kevin to offer, "it tastes like a tootsie pop." Indeed. Purchased in Galveston, TX (Spring Break ’04).

Pours a nice amber color with a small white head that falls fast. Aroma is slightly spicy and nice and malty. Taste is a bit sweet at first, mildly malty and very smooth.

Spreading like a cancer all over the West Coast. This is not a good beer, nor a terrible beer, but solidly mediocre. Overly carbonated with thin body and somewhat watery taste.

Draught, bottle. Pours a nice amber color with a decent frothy head. Nose is sweet, fruity, and malty. Not as malty in taste as nose, but a solid nice beer. Good carbonation, but a little thin in body. Nice summer beer for me.

Not a bad amber. Had this one out of the bottle. Bit of a fruity nose, malty taste, clean finish. Good overall.

Pretty amber color with just a little head. It has a little fruity aroma. The taste has mild hops and mild malts with a little more of the fruit. Nothing to gung ho, I expected more.

Wow. I’ve had this a million times and it totally let me down tonight. Thin body. Hops? Didn’t see them. Slightly sweet. I know this beer could be good, but it has been half assed for the most part. This is becoming a macro standard.

UPDATED: FEB 6, 2005 This seems to be their most popular beer. Why? Because you can find it everywhere! This amber pours (would you guess?) amber in color, with large bubbles in its white fluffy head. Aroma is fresh and hoppy. Somewhat earthy with spicy notes. Flavor has a nutty, bready mouthfeel. Mild texture. Overall, pretty good. But I wish I could find their trippel this easy.
