COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A 2001 Silver Medal Winner at the North American Brewers' Association competition. A deep-copper colored medium - bodied ale. Its fresh flavor is smooth and carefully balanced with a nice mellowness and hint of caramel malt balanced by medium hop bitterness. It is an all malt beer that is naturally carbonated. A very drinkable beer all on its own and pairs well with all kinds of foods.

12 oz bottle-could be the worst beer i have ver had-terrible tea/onion aroma with no really good quality about it. flavors are faint and terribly tea-like. bland and lifeless!

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - JUL 27, 2004
Amber to reddish body with a medium white head, fast disappearing. Some malts in the aroma, weak and bland. Thin flavor and a weak flavor of hops. Far too thin.

Steib (613) - Queen Creek, Arizona, USA - FEB 26, 2004
Medium reddish-amber color. Gentle hop aroma. Smooth, yet tends to be a little bitter in the aftertaste. A decent easygoing beer.

BelgianGirl (89) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - JAN 18, 2004
Sweet, mild mead-like smell. Orange amber color with white head. Flavor is sweet with hint of caramel to it. Easy beer to drink that does not have any distinct taste, tastes a little like sweet tea.

Brodie (540) - Blowing Rock, North Carolina, USA - JAN 18, 2004
Aroma is overripe fruit, light perfumy hops, caramel, malt, and a slight cooked vegetable smell. Bright orange amber color, off-white head, good lacing. Flavor is a mix of light caramel malt and fruity, perfumy hops, and overall is a little thin/watery. Medium body. Overall, a light and refreshing amber ale that features some fruity/perfumy hops. Good Arizona summer beer.

JohnC (3000) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - MAY 23, 2003
Nice looking enough: clear amber color, nice white head; however, looks can be a bit deceiving. The flavor isn't much more than water. A slight bite up front w/ watery finish.

JCW (1274) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 23, 2003
Looks like an Amber, smells like an Amber, taste awful. The Commercial Description says "A typical American Amber, light and refreshing, made from mountain spring water of Northern Arizona". I think I might have found proof that wild bears do shit in the woods. They do it right next to mountain streams in Northern Arizona .

Kathy (241) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 12, 2003
Bright amber gold color. Malty sweet aroma with a hint of yeastiness. Very sweet, sugary flavor with some caramel notes in it. Not much of a finish. Not very complex at all.

(draft) Clear medium copper body, minimal head. Aroma is medium sweet, caramel, malty. Taste is mild -- some caramel, but generally bland maltiness. No hoppiness to speak of. Palate is soft and smooth.
