Golden color. Slightly hoppy aroma.. more reminiscent of a freshly mowed lawn. Slightly hoppy but weak bodied, watery. Not particularly good.

UPDATED: JAN 4, 2004 Lightly hazy, golden ale with a small, fizzy, white head. The nose is of honey, floral notes, mild butterscotch and peach. The flavor produces notes of straw, bitter, herbal hops and mango. Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Lengthy, dry finish.

joet (2222) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - NOV 7, 2003
Hops are there in aroma but flatten into a dusty herbal, parsley flavor. I think this is lots more robust than the typical micro but the body is on par. Light medium effervescence, not much body texture -- not a whole lot there.

Oakes (12788) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 6, 2003
Rich amber colour. That's about all that's rich, though. Grainy, slightly herbal aroma. Light flavour, mild herbal hops. Sweetish finish that is at once oily and malty. While a cut above such dubious beers as Oland Export, Black Horse, 50 and Molson Golden, it's confused nature (real beer or macro beer?) actually puts it behind Ten Penny, Molson Export and Molson Stock Ale in overall presentation (even if it is more robust in character).

Nice gold color with a thin white head. Malty. Crisp, and low on hops. Very pleasant to drink.

bluemeow76 (693) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - NOV 3, 2003
Pours a gold color with a medium thin white head. Flavor and aroma have some floral hops and a good deal of malt. A little light for my taste.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - OCT 30, 2003
Tap. Light color with full head. Thin, quenching malt flavor, with dominating hops. No yeal flaws, but nothing out of the ordinary.

Wrath (362) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - OCT 20, 2003
Yellow orangish color with almost no head.Aroma is grassy and sweet. Taste is slightly fruity with a smooth malty feel. Finishes with a smooth hoppy bite. A decent blond.
