Hazy gold color out of the bottle with a huge, uncontrollable white head. I eventually got it all in the glass. Grainy malt nose. Distractingly lively on the palate, which I expected given the huge, uncontrollable head. Sweet malty taste with some citrus hop finish. Clean dry finish. Nice session beer.

Thanks to goldtwins for this one. Pours light coppery with a medium white head. Aroma of hops, citrus, malt, slight fruit and spice. The taste presents hints of malt, hops, with some floral, citrus, even caramel notes. The palate is medium in firmness and body, with a slightly dry finish.

Small creamy white head. Light citrus and aroma. Light think oily body easy to drink with some fruity sweetness underneath a nice hop finish.

This beer is like the candy of beers, just as the name states it is sweet tasting, however it is not overly sweet and makes for a real special taste.

TChrome (1425) - Bedford, Texas, USA - AUG 13, 2004
A very easy beer to drink. This makes a nice session beerr. Nice copper color with a minimal egg white head. The aroma is nice enough to make the user want to quaff. Notes of grapefruit and biscuit. The flavor corresponds and is easy going grapefruit and sweet bread. Not an edgy pale ale, but nice quaffable.

A pretty standard pale. Deep amber hue. Very carbonated. More hoppy than malty. Hops and carbonation go well together. G-rat

On tap: Pours a clean golden color with a frothy white head. Aroma boasts a nice amount of hops. Starts lightly sweet and turns more hoppily bitter toward a crisp finish. Not all that complex, but well balanced and very drinkable.

Bottle. Thin bubble film on a golden body. Nose is hoppy with some sweet cream notes. Taste is really good, sweet and hoppy. This is a very clean, fresh beer. Finish is nice with just a little youch of bitter. Very enjoyable.

this looks like a hefe. cloudy golden yellow with a billowy white head. aroma is citrus hop. has a clean sweet taste at first that is very strong with hops but quickly melts into an enjoyable malty roasted nut taste. the description on this is correct. this is crisp and clean, maybe not extra clean, but clean. a nice brew, thanks for sharing, Lumpy

UPDATED: MAR 16, 2005 The defining taste is of bitter hoppiness - but this isn’t a bad thing at all. The hops are not too fruity but rather more "dark" in taste. It is bitter, sweet, and noticably dry. This is another beer that leaves a "well water and hops" impression (see: Saranac IPA, etc.). These hops are dark and musky.
