Amber was excellent and I like this one even more. I’ve wondered why this one hasn’t received more kudo’s from reading reviews. As a taster its the best blonde I’ve had. Citrusy, sweet, little hoppy presense. It gets your attention. This is liquid gold. After having consumed I’m surprised its not rated higher than it already is.

Clean, Crisp, and refreshing. Nice hop combination (chinook and mt. hood) ..

UPDATED: JUN 29, 2004 Cloudy golden color with a small but lasting white head. The aroma is terriffic: citrusy and pineapple. Flavor is very hoppy. Bitterness is in style and not overpowering as you would expect with all of the hops in the flavor and nose. Enough malty sweetness to carry hoppiness. Reminds me of Dreadnaught’s little brother, must try this again to make sure I’m not delusional.
Second rating. Consistent with the first rating but a little sulfuric? taste. Aroma is still good. 4.4 down to a 4.2, maybe I'm a little critical since I've initially rated so high. rybarclay (7) - - APR 29, 2012 does not count
Pours clear golden with one finger head that quickly fades. Light crisp hop aroma, clean & refreshing enjoyed on the deck after some yard work!

I didn’t expect much when I first tried the beer, but was surpirsed by such an excellant beer. beermatrix (1497) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - JUL 7, 2003
Fairly hazey yellow color with a full foamy white head. Mild smell, as with most pales, this was almost to mild, very light hops and some lemon-like notes. Taste of sweet hops and hints of fruit and fruity sugars, light but solid. Nice and smooth, light and pleasing feel with a medium malt body, excellent. Finish is also smooth, a little dry with a great, thin hoppy tone.
