Pours amber with white head, aroma is a touch of roast, caramel, nuts. Taste up front is some weak metallic hops, caramel, nutty roast, and a sweet slightly dry finish. Some good flavors, but a bit weak overall.

Ernest (6353) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 4, 2006
Head is initially small, fizzy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear light amber. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), trace hops (flowers), with a hint of dirty feet. Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately bitter, husky. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively/fizzy carbonation. Damn, talk about having to concentrate to find any aroma. Just about nuthin’. Similarly BLAND in the mouth. Hwarrff!

5000 (6299) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - FEB 13, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 19, 2004 Bottle pours amber with a medium sized off-white head.   Decent carbonation, good lacing.   Lots of very fine bits floating about, almost appears unfiltered.   Aroma is grain & malts.   Taste is much the same, but with a sweaty sock & ashtray finish.   Definately thin on the palate.   I can see why this is what they offer to BMC drinkers at Redhook.

blankboy (6277) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 18, 2009
Bottle (12oz) shared with HogTownHarry & garthicus -- c/o garthicus. Pours a clear oily looking golden-orange with a small quickly diminishing white head. Mild aroma of grain, sweet malt and very light hops. Watery flavour of grain, corn, bread, artificial fruit and a light bitter finish -- not liking it. Average bodied. Mediocre at best.

BBB63 (6155) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAR 3, 2008
Bottle and served in standard pint glass: Clean deep golden hue with a fizzy head and some lace. The aroma has notes of bready and caramel malt, herbal hop, some apple and pear esters, a bit medicinal as well. The taste is rather boring as it is missing the brash citric twang I was led to believe was here. Really noting more than a standard paint-by-numbers amber ale. Malty and sweet with a minimal hop bitterness. Additional there is a veggie and corn aftertaste that sucks. The mouth feel sprite but short, thin-bodied. What a waste of money, I was looking for something refreshing and this is not it.

HogTownHarry (6130) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUN 18, 2009
Bottle (12oz). Shared by garthicus with me and blankboy. Clear bright gold, smallish white head. Tangy, slightly harsh, sweet - apricot? Taste - same, cereal, generic bitterness, slight fake fruit - wtf? Slick, sort of lively, harsh building aftertaste. Not too good.
