This is a medium bodied beer with a clear red brown color, and an average creamy light brown head that is mostly lasting with good lacing. The nose has a moderate malt characteristics with slight cereal overtones, in addition to a minimal yeasty characteristic with doughy overtones; a very pleasant and clean nose. The initial flavor is moderately sweet and finishes with a salty butter-like light sweetness to moderate bitterness. The finish is average to long duration. The brew has a medium body with a creamy texture and soft carbonation and a metallic feel. This is a brew which I classify as well above average. Moderate complexity combined with easy drinkability. My only lament is the lofty price.

UPDATED: DEC 5, 2004 ReRate-one of the origonal beers i rated on this site. Had this on tap at Holoman AFB. pours a brown amber hue with nice off-white head. aroma is subtle notes of butter (diacytl), peanuts, and cardboard. Flavors are really not that good. diacytl is huge in this beer. Buttery all over the place. finish is not to bad-nice hop notes (earthy) and the diacytl is gone. One of my "starter" beers i guess you could say.

Weak and overpriced. I wouldn’t turn it down, but I wouldn’t buy it unless the alternative was industrial macrobrew.

UPDATED: FEB 11, 2003 2-19-02 A very good beer, nice aftertaste, smooth, yet flavorful. Ranks among my favorite beers of all time. rerate 2-11-03, This was one of my first rated beers so I had to go back with my new appreciation of beer. I still enjoyed it, but the 4.1 I gave it before was a bit much. It has a nice smooth maltieness, but a little too plain to be in the 4 range.
