Ernest (6352) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 18, 2003
Head is initially small, frothy, white, fully diminishing. Body is hazy light yellow, dense tiny particles, bottle conditioned. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted bread), moderately hoppy (herbs, grass, flowers), with a light note of honey. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, metallic. Nice enough aroma, but the aftertaste ruins this beer.

baobubba (455) - Starkville, Mississippi, USA - APR 22, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 24, 2003 Moderate white head, golden color. Aroma of dry/metallic resiny noble hops, a little bisquit/cake, faint bubble gum. Semi-sweet with a quick bitter finish, almost crisp. No aftertaste.

UPDATED: FEB 3, 2003 I really looked forward to the seasond in which I could obtain this brew. There is nothing that stands out, or is respectable in this brew. It was mgd in a different bottle.

3fourths (8236) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 12, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2007 [rerate needed] A suprising taste from a ’large micro’ such as Pyramid. Taste was well-rounded and full. One of the better summer beers you can find in Oklahoma liquor stores (known for their horrid selection). Comparable to a witbier, but with less coriander taste and slightly more dry. However, if left on the shelf for more than a couple of weeks this beer goes bad fast.

Sparkling gold color with short lived white head. Light malt nose.Malt flavor with light brief finish. Nothing special

Verne (263) - Enumclaw, Washington, USA - JAN 9, 2003
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 (3452) - 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.

jsquire (3561) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - SEP 15, 2002
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.
