Bottle. Poured a large sized creamy off-white head that contained fine-medium sized bubbles that were mostly lasting. Fast-rising carbonation, transparent and a red-orange hue. Malty and hoppy aroma with a bitter, malty, smooth hoppy and watery flavor. Smooth and water/thin palate. This was a light bodied beer with sparse lacing.

Alcoholist (570) - Peoria, Illinois, USA - MAR 24, 2004
Clear dark copper color with a medium head dissolving to a sheet of lace. Aroma is smoke malt and earth with pine. Flavour starts earthy with some sourness. Middle is caramel with a dry slightly smokey finish. Complex and good, just a bit thin for me.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAR 20, 2004
Dark red mahogany color with light creamy head and no lacing. The aroma is mild with a bit of hops and a moderate amount of malt sweetness. The flavor is balanced with not much hops coming through. Finishes mild too, not too bad, pretty average.
