UPDATED: JUL 21, 2014 Nice aroma of toffee and vanilla, dull uninspiring colour with little or no head, but lovely clean mellow flavour with an excellent bitterness. This reminds me of Marstons Pedigree 20 odd years ago when it was really goodScore 3.7

A bitter taste that catches you off guard but then are fully impressed upon completion of second and third.

Nexxus (261) - Apple Valley, Minnesota, USA - FEB 15, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 17, 2004 Clear light amber with a medium diminishing off white head. Nice floral hop aroma with notes of citrus, honey, and toasted bread. Medium light watery body with lively carbonation. Very smooth and refreshing, an excellent session beer. The flavor has the characteristic Sierra Nevada hop bite with notes of citrus, honey, pine and a hint of spice.

Golden with a small head. Aroma is mild, both sweet and a little sourish.A nice ale, but I thought I would like it even better.

uvajed (173) - Ravenna, Ohio, USA - FEB 15, 2004
A very good beer, and a nice pale ale. Nice, citrusy aroma and a mildly fruitly flavour, and just hoppy enough, all in all. I've had better pale ales, but not many, and this is truly a fine brew. The availablity of this beer seems to be good, and the price very fair. A must try, and a good stand-by at bars that don't stock super-premium beers (though this is close!).

One of my favorite beers.... I cannot believe I had not ranked it prior to now! Very enjoyable pale ale, with a bitter close. Nice look and aroma. Can also get at just about any grocery store, which is nice.

not chewy. Smells really good. deep gold color with thick head that remains for awhile. Hops certainly in the aroma and flavor. An aquired taste, but so rewarding when ice cold...

On tap at casino bar: pours a nice, deep golden color with thick head. Nice hoppy aroma,and flavor was very spicy and can taste the hops.Light-bodied and overall this is pretty good stuff. I would want to drink it again.
