I liked the bottle. That sold me. Then I tasted it. Guess what?? It's an ale. Nothing impressive. Not bad, just not great. I suppose it's cool because it's a microbrew.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden brown color with little head. Good balance of malt and hops with a little more malt than hops. It starts with a slight bitterness and ends quite smooth. This would be a good session beer.

Bomber bottle. This was beer was ok. Had a malty flavor to it that was pretty good but besides that nothing special.

What a brew, over at a friends and he bought this one for just the occasion (apartment warming) drank two of these right out of the bottles and brought my third bottle home. Sweet start with slightly bitter finish. Would travel out of my way to obtain another sixer of this.

On tap. Nice light brown color, but little head. Strong malty sweet smell, but the palate is too watery to live up to it.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
wonderful light amber color with frothy off-white head. Definite flowery aroma but malty at the same time. taste went from lightly sweet to slightly bitter with a light to medium body.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured a reddish orange with a thin white head. Aroma was slightly sweet with a bit hops. It's a bit fruity and hoppy. Nothing really sets this beer off for me. It's a good brew but not my thing.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 14, 2003 Smells strongly of malt and slightly sweet... smells stonger than it tastes. A moderately rich brew... taste is smooth and malty, with a hint of hops at the end. Pretty much right on for the style. Personally I prefer the hop bite of an IPA, but this isn't bad at all. Defnite points for a kick ass bottle.

New sweet malt aroma with some hopiness, hazy red robe. Nuts and chocolate in the mouth, with some of the resinous west coast hops coming out. A certain raspeberry tartness is detected. Always a good beer.
