Had this a while ago on tap at BJ’s in Cerritos, CA. Not too bad, I think I had like 3 of them as a matter of fact haha.....it poured an orange gold hue, small white head, with a semi fruity aroma, some malts hinted as well. Flavor wasn’t too bad, slitghtly sweet and malty, with a bit of hops. Smooth finish, but nothing to get crazy about. DaSilky1 (2608) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 19, 2004
orange colored with big bubbled head. plump mandarine orange accented hop aroma..and a little grassy too. Nice mandarine orange session hop juice remaining quite drinkable..a little gritty and grainy at times but goes down nice. beerguy101 (5364) - Newark, California, USA - JUN 16, 2004

Fairly smooth tasting and somewhat sweet. Nicely balanced. Soft carbonation. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth.

The beer is pulled from the cask a beclouded amber with a portly light tan head with the lace being a thin curtain to drape the glass. Nose is malt sweet, fresh and pleasing to the senses, start is nicely malted and somewhat sweet with the top fair to middling in feel. Finish is modest in its acidity, the hops apropos to the style, quite dry aftertaste, drinkable and a nice filler in between the killer IPA’s.
This brew pours with an amber-orange body topped by a thick creamy head with a good amount of lacing. The aroma is slightly sweet and slightly sour with slight citrus notes and a touch of bread. The flavor is sweet and malty with fruity notes and a hint of piney bitterness. Light to medium bodied and smooth.
