Ratman197 (10460) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUL 19, 2005
Bottle poured a clear amber with an off white head. Aromas of sweet malt, carmel and a hint of citrus. Palate was a little on the thin side. Flavors of malt, and carmel with a mildly bitter finish. This is hardly what I would call boldly hopped!

hopscotch (9844) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 1, 2002
Good beer. The aroma is lightly malty and heavily floral. This clear amber ale has a medium sized, creamy head. Excellent lacing. Mostly diminishing. The flavor is very malty up front and fairly bitter on the backside. Fizzy. Medium bodied. Watery mouthfeel. Medium length, slightly bitter and a very very dry, crisp finish.
