All in all a good beer to order by the pitcher, but I think i’d prefer a Samuel Jackson. Mmmm, mmm! good M$#%^* F@##$$% choice. i’m not yelling, this is how I talk..

Tap. Poured a yellow/orange. Decent white head, some lacing. Aroma is lightly of hops, some malt. Taste is smooth. Mouthfeel perhaps is watery. Hops are long on the finish.

Was disappointed in this beer having heard so much about it. So much for truth in advertising. It was very difficult to get past the sourness of the beer. Appearance and aroma were fine, but who drinks a beer because it is pretty?

UPDATED: JUL 3, 2005 29 Aug 2004 - Nice light fruit hop malt aroma. Lightly cloudy, amber colour with a white nicely retained head and good suds lacing. Light sweet hop fruit malt however a bit too much like a lolly-water flavour. I guess this beer is knocked down in ratings because it is a macro beer, but I try to be objective.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
(on bottle) A dark orange brew with a sweet yeasty sent. Creamy mouth with very strong flavors of peach. Very much peach infact. No hopping at all in the fin ish. Soft, uninteresting beer.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear copper color, rocky white head that does a bit of lacing, sweet malty aroma with some lemon zest, tart malt flavor with some citrus noyes and a slightly bitter hop finish, water palate, not the worst lager I’ve had but certainly not the best

I am surprised this beer ranks so highly. To me it tasted of baked beans, maybe I got a bad batch. Looking to eventually re-rate.

This beer could simply not impress me after a Boston ale. It has a OK creamy head, but it disapears rater quickly. Disapointing aroma. The taste is to plain and is slightly metalic. Weak finish...

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A high quality lager, half-dark in colour (deep golden, orange, reddish) with strong aroma of caramel. Full-bodied, malty with light background of hops and spices.
