Slightly hazy golden yellow with a medium diminishing frothy white head. Aroma of bread, sweat, straw, lemon, honey, and a hint of spice. Medium watery body with lively carbonation. Grassy flavor of bread, pepper, citrus and honey. Much, much better than your run of the mill ’premium lager' - an excellent summer beer’. Very good.

Fresh and crisp flavor, with a nice balance between malt and hops. Maybe some citrusy/wheat flavors too. I liked it as an alternative to a "big three" lager.

Bottle into small plastic tasting cup, Humulus Lupus @ Jak’s Tap (Chicago). I didn’t like this much. Citrusy nose was nice. The taste, however, was skunky and mealy (in addition to the bitter hops). I could see how it was trying to be a good beer, but it failed. Not balanced, not smooth, tastes bad.

Light nothing in the nose - maybe weird. Some hops in taste and light grain - thats it.

2004 Bottle. Golden body, fizzy white head. Sweet appely aroma. The flavor is quite light, there’s not much to the start and the finish consists mainly of leafy, stemmy hops. A well-made lager with some character. I wish Milwaukee’s Summerfest had this stuff available instead of $4 Millers.

Draft Pizza Port Solana Beach: Pours a clear gold color with a large even white head. Aroma is bready with some spicy hop and yeast notes. Flavor is a good balance with bitter hops and sweet malt in good harmony. Body is medium with a creamy texture. This is a great "Premium Lager!"

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
2004 bottle. Gold body capped by a frothy white head. Nose is hoppy bordering on skunky. First flavor notes are honey, hops, a little citrus (apple), and earthy. finish is bitter and dry. Very refreshing beer. Goes down good.
