1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Sierra's take on budweiser. Nothing special about this American Lager style of beer. But I guess that's what this style is supposed to be. Perfect for a hot summer day on the beach.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Very unimpressive beer, golden in color with very little head, decent balance, a bit on the bland side, below average brew

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The beer pours a very nice dark golden colour..with a good sized pure white foamy head..which seems to last quite a while.
mmm nice fresh aroma on this beer..nice slight hoppy floral smell..i smell some lenon grass too.
This is an excellent tasting lager..very fresh ( as would be expected this early) at first there is a nice crisp malt sweetness..followed soon after by the bite of the hops very well balanced..sense some wheaty tastes and lemon too..very nice.
Feels very good on the tongue there is a crispness but its not dry.
A most drinkable summer beer

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Strong yellow/honey color, thin white head. Obvious hopping in the aroma, especially at first whiff, then notes vaguely reminiscent of Vicks Vapor Rub (minus the Eucalyptus opening the nostrils), then fading to a dull dustiness--I guessed Saaz, but I see by its commercial description that it is Hallertauer. Very dry, grassy flavor, with a quick carbonated-water finish. In the realm of lagers it is o.k., but on its merits it didn't satisfy.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Some head and lacing. Good color, sort of a golden color. Hoppy aftertaste with the right touch of bitterness. I found this nice and refreshing.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Summerfets 2002: The appearance is a slightly pale copper body with a fluffy white crusty head. The aroma is Large with Lemons and caramel malts. I presume this beer must have changed quit a bit during its existence of well over a year. Very astringent and citric, finish is sweet yet dry, very crisp and well…..has a strange sharp Kumquat bittering characteristic.
Not nearly as hoppy as I thought this beer was going to be.
