2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Gold body, no head. Smells like a watered American lager. Taste is pleasing: sweet melon, citrus and tangy hops. No aftertaste really. This actually worked well with the "Chicken Taco Pizza" we were eating. Sampled in a 12oz. bottle from The Lost Dog Cafe in Arlington, VA with my great friend Jeremy.

Not much going in the aroma or flavor departments. It just tastes like any old beer - nothing really sticks out. I'm disappointed because I normally like this style of beer and this brewer.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Crystal clear, very light yellow lager. Huge, soapy, white head. Very good retention. Spotty lacework.
The nose is soapy and lightly fruity with tiny notes of honey.
The flavor is pretty nondescript. Not offensive. Well-balanced, but very thin and watery. Fizzy mouthfeel. Short, crisp, clean finish.

Bright yellow color with a mimimal white head. Some malt in the aroma, but not too much. Taste full of malt, bread, and hops. Overall not a bad beer. Wouldn't mind having this again!

A pretty average beer in all respects. Nothing spectacular. Some light malt and hop flavors and a nice bready aftertaste. Probably brewed because it's a "safe" beer for the restaurant's macro-drinking patrons.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This beer poured a yellow gold color and formed a bubbly white head that left little lace as it subsided. Some carbonation is present. An aroma of hops, malt and grain. The flavor was of hops, some malt and bread. The finish was light and had some metalic bitterness to it. Okay as a session beer, but nothing special.

UPDATED: AUG 8, 2003 Dark maize color and lively in body. Bit of a corny nose. Good grainy and malty flavor, smooth a balaned. Somewhat heavy. Pretty good. Re-rated and lowered after a drink at the brewpub.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bright, deep-gold color and a good bit of carbonation. Aromas of pale malt are balanced with grassy hop notes. Lots of good, crisp malt flavors, with a very round, smooth, and clean body.The only detraction is that the flavor profile could have had more depth. Finishes with more pale malt flavors with some bitterness.
