Wow! How can I explain it? This is the most full-flavored, smoothe, aftertaste-free beer you will ever drink!

larsga (6120) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 15, 2005
Big, coarse, white head; clear, copper-yellow body. Faint aroma of citrusy hops. Taste is clean and light, dominated by the citrus hops, with a a clear, bitter finish. An okay ale.

Small offwhite head thats short lived with little lace. Lightly hazy gold/copper hued brew. Light, raw hop nose with a light caramel maltiness coming through also. Body is light/medium. Light roasty malt flavors, light hop, citrusy with a faint earthyness. Finish is dry, quick. Thanks goldtwins!

Cappadonna (110) - Delray Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 5, 2005
Draft. Served way too cold in an icy mug, which made discerning an aroma difficult. Very enjoyable taste- nicely balanced. I would like to try it again.

Think both that they have a different thing in mind when it comes to 420 and that Iím one spoiled guy. Not only are there more and more good beers coming into Texas, but I get this one kindly hand delivered by a good friend and I have the audacity to pick it apart. Not really too much to quibble over as it IS good. I just expected there to be somewhat more aggressive hops. There are hops and probably more than my abused tongue even knows. Tad on the sweet side, but look at the brewery name fer goodness.

zug4abby (287) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 24, 2005
pours a kind of cloudy golden/orange color with a decent head and good amount of lacing. Aroma is moderately hoppy with hints of fruits and flowers. Very light floral flavor with slight hints of hops in the flavor as well. Pretty good light summer beer! Definitely one i could drink three or four of in a sitting.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 19, 2005
Pours with an orange-gold body topped by a medium thick to thick head with a good amount of lacing. Itís sweet, fruity and floral with a nice subtle hop bitterness. Light to medium bodied, smooth and crisp.

My session beer of choice. Copper color, mild hop aroma, nice balance with malt and hops and carbonation all making nice with each other. This is the beer that you go-to when you get home from work, need a drink with dinner, offer friends and family, etc. Itís the beer that makes Atlanta a legit brewing town.

Draught. Copper color, whitish medium head. Aroma is quite hoppy, and malty as well. Flavor similar, dry finish, but flavorfull also. Well balanced and tasty.

HumuloneRed (751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 10, 2005
Pours a clear and bright gold pale with a nice but dissipating head and some lacing. Sweet malt and floral notes in the aroma. Great malt profile with a some fruitiness and some citric bitterness and flavor for balance. Good pale.
