MCG with a large white head. Mild malt aroma with some nice hoppy floral notes. Hoppy, sweet refreshing flavour. Medium bodied, OK. Would be better on a hot day than a cold english evening though.

Pale golden lager with a dry and strong aroma. The flavour is very dry and bitter. Overall a very nice beer.

leaparsons (9677) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2004
Golden with a small head. Aromas are lemon, grain and hops that are as fresh as cut grass. Flavours are zesty with citrus and green hops. Refreshing with good bitterness to finish. Good stuff.

fiulijn (18577) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 5, 2004
Blond color. Crispy aroma, a bit malty and lightly smokey. Some nice malt taste, residual sweetness, and bold final bitterness. Very good as thirstquencher.

CampbellWilson (533) - SCOTLAND - NOV 28, 2004
33cl bottle from onlyfinebeer. Tastes a bit like an Oktoberfest, surprised it was 5% and not 6. Clear, golden. Medium diminishing white head. Malty aroma with a little hop and yeast creeping in. Slightly sweet flavour, hint of alcohol. Could use more hops IMHO.

thehoff (596) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - NOV 19, 2004
2004.Pale gold, no head, smells of malts. It has a weird type of tangy bitterness and no real distinct flavor. There is a good afterthought of bitterness which is quite nice. Not their best but not their worst either. Very drinkable beer.

Saarlander (1686) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - NOV 7, 2004
A very plain beer, thought Sierra Nevada would do better, very faint fruit flavor, bland taste on the palate, not so good, I’d drnk a few lagers over this one:-(

Tap @ Lucky Baldwins, Pasadena Anonymous nose. Golden, low carbonation and head. A bit fruit in the flavor, but overall lightish with a bitter finish. Not too exiting.
