My idea of a good summer beer a little boring but there are times when one would prefer a very clean flavored beer. Nice hops notes

Aubrey (3430) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - OCT 19, 2002
UPDATED: JUN 3, 2005 Hazy-gold with a clean nose. Moderately carbonated and refreshingly crisp. Flavorful - yet delicate - aroma with a semi-sharp and dry finish. Slight sourness and some bitterness. Stylistically speaking, pretty good stuff. Rerate: Very crisp up front; a slight amount of stickiness in the finish. Nice and doughy aromas. Bready, wheaty malt flavors.

This poured out of the bottle a pale straw color with a fluffy white head that left nice lace. I found this beer to be a little thin with little flavor. Relatively crisp, with a definite yeasty tone in the finish. Inoffensive but uninteresting.

Not bad. The feel was great...nice and crisp...bubbly. The aroma and flavor were pretty bland. I did taste a slight citrusy/bitter flavor. The color was a hazy yellow.

BillKismet (3321) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 7, 2002
Hazy peach-tangerine color with adequate white cream top. Clean yeasty and pilsner-like aroma. I don’t seem to care for this style, but this beer is drinkable--though I took small sips as the prospect of a cloying overdose of winey yeastiness is not favorable to me. Overall, this was a smooth subdued kolsch suitable for summer if this style appeals to you.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUL 13, 2002
Pours a clear gold, the head white, but it dissipates much to quickly, the lace is minimal. Nose malt, the front is sweet, the top is light, the finish is dry, acidic, lightly hopped. Average beer is the best I can say.

Had some of this before a Mariners game. Light body, somewhat fruity. Good hot weather brew. May try again at the next game.

Crisp, clean refreshing - nice appearance in the glass, simple but effective.

It looks good with a decent head, but the taste is nothing special.
