From one of those "metal bottles". Not sure why it comes like that, but it looks cool. The beer had a clear copper color with a niced sized white head and some good lacing. Hoppy aroma with a faint apple/fruit smell. Mild hoppy taste with bitterness and some dried, hard bred tones. Different, but in a good way. slimweebs (163) - Los Angeles, California, USA - OCT 16, 2004
This beer did not impress me. It’s decently smooth, but the flavor just didn’t do it for me. It was bland in my opinion. Jokes (1453) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 13, 2004
Clear golden amber body with a thick, fluffy off-white head. The aroma has a nice blend of strong hops and omnipresent grain. Caramel, grape nuts, pine resin, oat meal, grass and hay. The body is simple but easy drinking. The flavor shows nice balance of malt and hops. The bitterness of the hops do not dominate the malt offerings. While its not mind blowing or even extraordinary, this would be a great beer to drink over the course of several hours. I was a bit concerned about the aluminium bottle but my fears were asuaged by the first smell and taste. Not bad. heemer77 (5355) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - SEP 4, 2004
Medium sized creamy head. Nice dark orange coloring. The aroma is fresh baked bread and a background of oranges. Very mild aroma. The flavors are malty and have a touch of grapefruit. Also a little bit of apple crispness. A nice subtle pale ale. I guess if you have to have something that is not in a glass bottle, this would be a great option.

Clear amber with a medium slowly diminishing frothy off white head. Aroma of caramel, citrus, pine, bread and spice. Medium watery body with a moderate amount of carbonation. Flavor of caramel, citrus, pine, hazelnut, biscuits and spice. A little hoppier than I was expecting from an English pale ale. Nice and drinkable, but pretty standard. Decent.

Deep orange and copper colored. Sweet caramel and maple mixed with a tart hop and leafy Marzen/Vienna aroma and flavor.. this one is pretty good. Roasted nut and toffee flavors, solid bitterness... definitly resembles other EPAs I’ve had. AustinMilbarge (681) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 21, 2004
Had while I was fishing in MT this summer. Soft mouthfeel. Went well with a sandwich I was having that was mildly spicey. Good mix of hops and malt. Terminus (3679) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 19, 2004
bottle-pours a medium orange hue with rocky off-white head. aroma of toasty malts, caramel malts, piney and earthy hops with a touch of brown sugar. I like that! Flavors are malty, earthy hops, cinammon and slighty dry piney finish that is very long. This beer has a decently round palate but has a slightly astringent finish. a decent mix between an EPA and APA IMO. iwantalambic (1478) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 8, 2004
12.5 oz aluminum bottle: amber bronze - minimal patchy head decent dry grain/caramel aroma with a light touch of piney hop cones...overly fizzy palate with strong metallic notes over subdued bitter hops and a slim malt sourness. I must say that my expectations were pretty low with this one, and I found it to be pretty drinkable with those expectations... JoeM500 (1908) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - AUG 1, 2004
Another beer sold in an aluminum bottle!
Light all around, in color, taste, freshness. Somewhat grainy and harsh at first sip, metallic. Some hops at the finish don’t save this from being poured down the drain!
