UPDATED: MAR 20, 2003 3/08/03: bottle. thick cream colored head. cloudy, medium orange body. floury, yeasty nose. lots of light honey flavoring. yeast taste but not overwhelming. also includes a bit of a perfumey taste- similar to sam adams' hops. a good beer although i expected more hops.

Golden color with a quickly dissapearing head. Flowery smell. Slight citrus taste, with a little bit of malt to balance it out. Not exactly an attention grabbing beer, but probably a good one if you are trying to ease someone into the world of good beer.

UPDATED: MAR 18, 2003 transparent fool's gold color with just a small halo of white bubbles atop...very sugary, malty, maple syrup, and subtle sweet orange-like aroma..flavors were slightly malty with whispers of hop flowers, caramel, and semi-sweet,but thats about it...definitely not my style.

Pours a clear, orange color with a nice, persistent white head. The aroma is really, pretty good. Nice balance of malt and hops. An interesting sweet, spicy note, maybe cinnamin or grass or something. The flavor is good. The malt is a little lacking, but a nice hoppy finish. Good bitterness and bite. A great session beer. Good for drinking several pints.

Pinkish-orange color, small immediately decaying head. Delicious butterscotch/flowery/scotch aroma, much more pronounced and interesting than I expected. Flavor a little earthy, a little malty, a little hoppy; not sure what others are complaining about, this really worked for me. It's not bursting with flavor, but a refreshing change from other lighter ales.

Good, but typical. Very bubbly, with a honey brown color, slight opacity and a sudsy head. Head sticks lightly to the glass all the way down. Very mild and pleasing aroma of sweet hops, and an understated citrusy orange undertone. It was very drinkable at first, but so bubbly it got filling quickly. Late bitters were present but not really strong. Cloying texture, which I don't care for.

I wasn't certain to expect from this one. A nice aroma is the highlight of this beer, though the slight bitterness and smooth, light flavor do make it a good session ale.

Pours with a thick foamy lasting head atop a crisp amber body. The glass was coated with lace. Citrusy (orange, lemon) hop aroma with buttery notes. Mild Citrusy hop flavor with a touch of maltiness and a hoppy finish. Great flavor. Smooth and medium bodied.

Mild, maybe too mild, golden brown with almost no head. Lemon citrus aroma. Slight maltiness and a tad of hops. Not a bad brew and would be nice on a hot day but if you have a choice go for the 3 Floyds Alpha King.

Caramel, malts and hops work pretty well together in the flavor, but it tastes like it is lacking something. I assume that's what the "mild" means. No head retention, and the color is sort of a sickly amber.
