Bottle. Slightly hazy amber brown color with a small cola-like head. roma is malty and hoppy. Flavor is malty (syrup like) and mildly hoppy in aftertaste. Generally, a decent all around beer--much like its English counterparts.

bubbleflubber (1743) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - AUG 30, 2004
Pours hazy reddish-brown, with a medium head that dissipates quickly leaving nice lace. Spicy hop nose. Almost immediate caramel on the front, malt balanced nicely with hops. Cleanses the palate well, nothing too obtrusive. Nutty bitter finish that tends to linger (maybe even a shade too long), but definitely fills the mouth and is decently drinkable. Would recommend with pizza or other hearty Ameritalian cuisine. Compliments well with marinara.

Crystal clear copper-coloured beer with a thin off-white head. Sweet caramel malt and citrusy grapefruity hops. The flavour is also sweet with a spicy character and a bitter finish. Well-balanced.

UPDATED: JUN 21, 2004 Pours a dark cloudy copper with an off-white head. Aroma is malty. Taste is citrusy with plenty of malt, decent amount of hops. Has an apple cider-ish taste that I didn’t really like. Mouthfeel is full and round. Not bad, not great either.

Bottled. Poured a reddish-orange with little white head. Fruity aroma and a mildly hoppy flavor with fruity undertones. I picked up on some pine and banana during the tasting of this one. Good pale.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - MAY 22, 2004
Nice amber color,small white head that faded quickly leaving little behind.The aroma was hoppy and piney with a mild grapefruit coming through.The flavor was medium hoppy maybe a little less then that with a decent citrusy side and a mild pine like flavor towards the end.Not bad but definately nothing special,well worth trying agin though.

Pours a deep pink color with a very foamy lasting head. Looks great me thinks. Hoppy smell, very pleasant actually, I am looking forward to my first sip of this beer. Very nice mouthfeel, feels like a thousand women massaging my tongue. Taste is decent, very dry bitter aftertaste. This beer goes in stages on its course through my mouth and down my throat, starts out sweet, goes to bitter then finishes dry and clean, if that is a taste. Good stuff, would definately purchase this one again, and other pyramid beers. very nice
