UPDATED: NOV 1, 2004 I searched a long time to find this beer in Philly. It is ledgendary in Dirk Pitt novels and I finally found it and purchased 2 six packs $12.00 each. I really wanted to love this beer but I was a bit disappointed at the aftertaste. Upon opening the bottle I was excited when I took in the sweet aroma and the deep caramel appearance which reminded me of Yuengling Lager. The head looks dark & frothy. The flavor was strong but bitter and an aftertaste that reminded me of Schlitz which we used to buy when we just wanted to drink cheap in the 70’s. I could have really enjoyed this beer if not for the after taste. If I want bitter I would have an ale but all the senses leading up to the taste were highly superior. thegreenrooster (4490) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 12, 2003
After 500 ratings what else is there to say. Nice amber color with a wonderful scent. Clean and refreshing, this can be drunk at any part of the year and it will satisfy jtw (1165) - farmington, Michigan, USA - DEC 10, 2003
UPDATED: APR 27, 2005 lightly malty, slightly tangy and hoppy aroma. it’s a clear, light amber with an appropriate head. somewhat complex, but far too thin. has an acidic/metallic feel, but maybe that’s just because it’s from a bottle... very clean finish.

A classic, forgot I never rated this puppy. A refreshing yet complex beer. Nice golden amber color. Minor sweet notes. Clean hops finish leaves you wanting more.

Poured with a small head, and pleasant but slight grassy aroma. A little thin, but malty and a nice finish with the hops. gotebo (11) - carnegie, Oklahoma, USA - DEC 6, 2003
Pretty amber colour with not much head. Some lacking. Metallic can taste. This stuff is way over-rated and over-priced. sethatuml (38) - USA - DEC 4, 2003
Easy to drink. Almost too easy to drink. I was expecting much more from this. Flavor was very thin and bland. Perhaps i'm just spoiled on rich beers of doom... jeffc666 (1984) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - DEC 2, 2003
From 2000 Notes - Amber color. Malty floral nose. Flavor is about 50/50 malt and hops. Not bad but IMO overrated. Wrath (362) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - DEC 2, 2003
Golden color with medium white head.Hoppy aroma. Small malty bitter flavor but very light.Fairly smooth clean taste.Finishes dry and slightly bitter.
