Draft. Copper color without much aroma. The flavor is very mild and has a bit of a fruit/malt combination. Very little bitterness. Makes for an easy drinking beer, but nothing inspiring.

In answer to your question (WISEGUY527 "I used to love this. Did they change or did I?", a friend of mine just told me that they have been bought out by Anheiser Bush (this is one of his favs - and I just told him about this site - expecting Vince to join soon)

Not bad. A little light and fizzy. Tasted alot like a blonde ale more that a bitter.

I used to love this. Did they change or did I? Looks great ... beautiful golden amber; not at al ESB in appearance, of course. Inoffensive nose, middling sort of taste. Too thin, not enough malt, not enough hops, not enough bitterness ...

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled on 08/12/03. Slightly Hazy amber gold color, pours with an off-white head that is fairly persistant but with largish bubbles. Aroma is of a hoppy, floral, citrus one, with a bit of sweetness thrown in the mix. A nutty malty taste mixed with a solid hop flavor. Finishes with a bit of bitterness and a certain dryness. This beer has a fullness of body to it that coats one's mouth as you sip it.

tastes like coffee to me and is way to thick and way to dark for my taste buds.

Copper colored(and moderately transparent) with white head. Aroma has both malt and floral hops. Starts out with an acidic bitterness blended with just a little maltiness. Finishes dry and slightly bitter. A pretty average beer.

Had this on tap. It is a nice dark amber color. The taste is of hops with bitter aftertaste. Overall not a lot of complexity to this beer. Above average though.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours with a light head. It is a medium orange-amber, with a slight haze. The aroma is very faint, but smells of malt. The head dissipates quickly. The initial taste is ahint of hops with some malt. It feels quite thin on the tongue with noticable carbonation, and leaves a mouthwash aftertaste.
