UPDATED: NOV 18, 2003 Bottled. It's certainly okay, just nothing great. There's a lot in its favor: a sudsy head over an amber body and a malty nose, a little like a Vienna. And yes, a malty, slightly sticky taste, but as they say, very little hop flavor. After being well pleased with this brewery's Oscar's Chocolate Oatmeal Stout, this is kind of a letdown. But if this is their "flagship" brand, it's a little better example to have on the shelves than any mega-lager.

Wow! My comments are about the same as TrappistAlesRule, but replace Blueberry Ale with Cranberry Special Ale"! Nothing bad or offensive, easy to drink, refreshing and smooth, but nothing to go out of your way for.

Remove the Blueberries from their Blueberry ale and this is what you have. A very uninteresting lager with a firm malt malt backdrop. Nothimg special here.
