12/30/07 from sample glass at brewery. Sweet, candylike aroma. Yellow and hazy with small ring of off-white head. Sweet, malty flavor with subtle bitterness in background. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Slighly sticky finish. Seemed to be underattenuated.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Fairly weak flavors/aromas for this beer. But it has a great smooth and creamy texture uncommon for this style. Very nice mouthfeel but thatís about all going for it.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Malty hues of grain, dry, clean, grainy flavor hues. The hints of dusty hops and pale color makes me think this is a macro clone for those who ask for Bud.
