An ols standby as long as its fresh. Nice hop aroma. Full bodied malt flavor with a good dose of hops throughout. Pleasantly drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2004 On tap: Very complimentary beer with a steak. Aroma-weak. Malt was happenin. Hops were Happenin. Flavor is nice. Boy how my palate has changed over the past year. This used to overpower me now it leaves me barely satisfied . Again, you can't go wrong with this beer on tap to pair with a good steak and potato. good American Macro, (lets be honest ok).

Pours a nice light color. Smells like a lager should, but falls a tad short in the flavor category. Tastes stronger than it is... Smooth mouthfeel, nice finish without any bitterness. I feel this beer would be better on tap... my bottle seemed to be slightly skunked which was surprising as the other beers in the sampler were OK. A good domestic beer... definitely worth the extra few dollars over anything BMC has to offer.

This beer is neat to look at, and it has a good head. But my good impression ends there. It has a taste that is like a cheap gin. I wasn't sure if I was supposed to drink it straight or mix it with tonic water and a lime slice!

Slight hop and malt aroma. Rudy to amber with a medium off white head and no lacing. Watered down hop flavor and slight bitterness.

UPDATED: SEP 13, 2005 I have had this one a few more times. Much better than I remembered. Nice aroma of oranges and some light carrots. The body is nice amber. The taste has a decent bite of flowers and some orange peel. Fairly hoppy for a lager. This is a nice alternative to BMC.

UPDATED: NOV 13, 2003 Poured amber in color with a decent white head. Good flavor of hops. Dry finish. This beer is the one that got me into drinking good beers, I think it kills any mast produced american brew, since it is now in that catagory. I like this beer and will order it at a bar if there is nothing very interesting on tap or bottle.

Poured an amber color with a small white head and I can recall no lacing. Minimal hop aroma. Watered down hop flavor, slightly malty as well. Nothing special, but better than other macros
