3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2003 Amber pour, minimal head. Smells enticing. Tastes... pretty darn good. I was rather surprised by the drinkability of this brew... nice blend of hops/malts... no bitter aftertaste, not the overpowering citrus you'll find in some PA's...it all works together pretty well. Additional points for cool artwork and the 'best if enjoyed by' on the label.

"Drink'em If You Got'em!" Thin white, almost silver, head on top of beautiful golden ale. Drinks easy. Hop bite rounded off well by malts. Citrus is there too. Good stuff, especially for that time of the afternoon.

This is a nice ale to look at. Very hoppy characteristics in the nose and the flavor. Loved it.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours clear amber with a moderate white diminishing head. Has a light hop aroma with a bit of citrus. Flavor is nice with mild hops but seems a bit too crisp and finishes dry. Good overall though.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Gold with a hint of orange, thin but lasting head. Aroma of hops, struck me as Cascade, a bit piney and grapefruity, but nothing over the top. Decent malt, but not spectacular. Exactly what I expected.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hazy, copper-peach color with a small tan head. Aroma is a bit dull and rounded, with some faintly citric (grapefruit, orange peel, tangerine) hop flavor, pale malt, and powdery, dusty yeast. Hint of medicinal phenolics underneath. The front is somewhat sweet, then opens into a harsh astringency from the carbonation. There’s some citric hop and generic malt flavor, but they get buried midway through by a wave of slightly sour, medicinal phenolics. A bit of nuttiness on the finish. Decent body and mouthfeel, but the off-flavors are distracting. Thanks to goldtwins for the bottle.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice floral, lightly hoppy nose. Color is a light copper, but fairly hazy. Is this a bottle conditioned beer? I see nothing on the label indicating so, and no sediment at the bottom of the bottle, so I'm inclined to think it is not bottle conditioned, in which case I believe the cloudiness to be a fault. Medium carbonation with a big frothy white head. Taste profile is rather timid. Light malt, light hops, light finish, light body...a bit of a metallic taste, perhaps this beer is a bit past it's prime? Maybe a fresher beer would be better? I acquired this beer in a trade, so I'm not sure of it's freshness. The label says enjoy by 4th week of November, but no indication of what year. Fair, but not great beer.
