I guess there is no accounting for good taste. The hype about this beer is pure marketing sham. Their other beers are much better. This is nothing more than an amber colored beer with really no life or charecter of its own.

This is an excellent middle-of-the-road beer. Not too impressive but definitly not shabby. It's a dark amber color, with lasting lacing. A sweet corn smell. The flovor is bitter and hints slightly of corn. tastes slightly biscuit like and hoppy.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma smells of corn and hops. Appearance is light amber. Flavor is not spectacular but is characterized by a malty/hoppy flavor. Palate seems to be average.

Fairly smooth, but thin ale. Not very strong, mediocre flavor is hoppy, with a little light malt profile.

On tap at Old Chicago,Nice amber color small head that faded fast or the waitress just took her time getting it to me.Malty sweet aroma with a nice hop presence with a mild fruit hint in it as well.The taste was decent light malty fruity and sweet with a slight earthy taste,The after taste was ok with it mostly sweet and hoppy.This was a fairly decent brew and cheap for price.

On Tap. Amber color, short diminishing head. Light nutty/fruity aroma. Medium maltiness with a hint of caramel. Sweet/sour finish. I liked the endgame of this tasting better than anything. Nothing special otherwise...

UPDATED: SEP 10, 2003 Interesting beer to me, sort of teeters from malty sweet to almost black licorace. Nutty, woody, a well done beer. Drinkable.

A pleasant microbrew from New Beligium Brewing. Not hugely complex, but a good drinking beer.

Has a nice amber color and a sweet malt smell. Taste is is sweet and finishes sticky. Overall once again I am not a amber ale guy so this is not for me.
