Bottle. Pours clear and flat amber with spare fizzy off-white diminishing head, spare lacing. Aroma is average malt (bread, grain, straw, cereal), light hops (herbs, grass), average yeast (sweat, horse blanket) with notes of alcohol, pineapple, butter and vegetable. Short duration, light sweetness, moderate bitterness and acidity; rather husky flavor. Light bodied, oily texture, soft carbonation and metallic finish.

Aubrey (3509) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JUL 7, 2004
Medium amber in color. Definitely on the malty side of things. Decent bitterness, but not enough in my book. Nevertheless, it was clean and easy-drinking without any off-flavors to complain about. And it actually had some flavor to it. Kind of surprised me a little.

Ando (105) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - MAY 3, 2008
*did not mind would not buy* aroma: faint smell of incense and stew. . like a hippie kitchen. app: like whiskey. flavor: like a very very light brown ale. lil toasty flavors. a floral pale ale brown ale with lotsa water. palate: watery. OA: fine water filled beer, neat peppery finish. I think this would be more intresting and just as healthy to drink as water.. 8 glasses a day.

blatz (138) - Palm Beach Gardens, FL, Florida, USA - JUN 29, 2004
Boring - tasted like it was trying to be Sam Adams Lager and Alaskan Amber at the same time. Did have a nice look to it -- amber with a firm white head, medium malty taste, but I just couldn’t get over the lack of character.
