Metalhead (638) - Lake Zurich, Illinois, USA - SEP 28, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 11, 2006 Amber color with soso head. Aroma of moderate hops and stale tropical fruit.Initially tasted of hops,old grapefruit but turned to a nasty bitterness with armpit sweat. Had to sacrifice a 1/3 bottle of Victory Old Horizontal to finish the glass. I enjoy hoppy beers but this one SUCKED! Rerate 3-06. I musta got a bad batch the 1st time around. This basically a decently mild hp session beer. Nothing more,nothing less.

JonMoore (2018) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2004
Hazy amber colour, with good sized off-white head. Aroma is flowery, hoppy and fruity. The taste is complex and nice; malty then hoppy, sweet and then slightly bitter aftertaste.Medium bodied with a nice creamy mouthfeel. Smooth and refreshing.

All say it with me now: the best stuff you can find pretty much anywhere.

(Among American Pales, I’d still go with the Great Lakes Burning River IPA, er, Pale Ale.)

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - SEP 26, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2005 Pours orange-copper with a medium, lasting white head. Aroma of grapefruit & lychee. Smooth medium mouthfeel. Flavour starts sweet clean malty with a hoppy mid and finish. Nice clean cascade flavours. Not as hoppy as I was expecting, but very nice anyway! Rerate (Sidebyside against LCPA): Same score, smaller head, more metallic in aroma and flavour than previously. Still a nice pale ale.

Barleyman (6) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 25, 2004 does not count
This beer has a deep amber color and a great blend of citrus-like tastes and scents in a full-bodied ale palate.Great hops flavoring,moderate head. Beautifully smooth.

I’ve always been a fan of Sierra Nevada but I had it on tap for the first time ever at my favorite pizzaria, Mellow Mushroom. Of course it was even better on draft. Great balanced flavor with enough complexity and texture to quench the thirst and excite your tastebuds.

GeniusGirl (221) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 17, 2004
nice, light and refreshing. crisp but still enough flavor to place it above the reg macro brew. grab this at the supermarket... an available brew that gives you no excuse to buy your average swill cuz there’s nothing else around.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - SEP 15, 2004
Pours amber color with medium white head. Light hop aroma. Light bodied, fruity, smooth. Not too much in malt or hops, good flavor balance.
