3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This amber colored beer has a nice head and an aroma of fruit and malt. The flavour has notes of fruit, flower and malt, and it’s exceptionally fullbodied "only" being a lager. The bitterness is moderate, but just right for this beer, that is almost ale-like.

UPDATED: JUL 4, 2007 Bottle. Subtle malt and hops aroma. Light amber color with moderate head. Moderate bready malt and hop finish. Had a sample at the Boston brewery - so much better fresh. Still usually the best choice availble at most chain restaurants.

Bottle: Light amber coloured, small, but firm off-white head; sweet-malty, a bit toasted aroma with a big touch of herbal hoppiness; distinctive bitter flavour; malty, nutty finish with a long, hoppy, herbal aftertaste. Superb ! Spicy and smooth.........

UPDATED: JUL 11, 2013 355 ml bottle. 4.7% (2009 rating 4.8%). BB Nov/13. (Prisma) Helsinki, Finland.
Clear amber colour with a small white head. A sweet fruity and berry aroma with some mild hoppy bitterness, fruit tea and sweetish maltiness. The flavour is fruity and floral hops, fruity tea notes and some bitterness. Some bitterness in the aftertaste. Slick palate. Tasty American Lager. Very Ale-ish Lager.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz bottle. Light yellow clear color, medium white head. Suprising hops taste, for a lager. Drinkable, but not very interesting.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at fiddler. Pours clear dark golden with a white head. Aroma of bread, dough, malt, light citrus. Flavour is light sweet and bitter, solid malt backbone with a little lemon. Light to medium bodied with light carbonation. Really excellent for a lager.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Not like the mass produced poor lagers like the mighty Bud (ahem). Unusual and not bad at all.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: SEP 28, 2008 Draught at O’Learys at Stockholm, Sweden, Airport Arlanda on February 17, 2006.
I’ve tried this beer several times on bottles and draught and I really like it!
Bronze color, nice head. Citrus and fruity scent. Nice big hoppy taste of American hops.
This is what American beers should be known for!

Blind tasting on September 27, 2008
Clear amber color, off-white to orange head. Perfumy, slight fruity, fresh scent. Buttery, malty, sweet, a bit fruity taste. Medium mouthfeel, low bitterness.
When tried side by side, blind, to their ale, they were very very similar.
