Slightly soapy smelling. Hazy color, hazy taste, bitter sour palate. I remember having this on Tap and liking it. In the bottle it is not so good really... Likerighteous (120) - Pflugerville, Texas, USA - JUL 3, 2005
An average amber ale that works as a light-fare summer swill. Nice color. Modest head. Nothing too complex on the tongue. $4.99 for a longneck six is cool. Maybe a good introductory amber ale for the Bud people? intheric (20) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUN 28, 2005
Virtually no head and very little carbonation in my bottle. Increased in bitterness as the beer went on. ehhdayton (1188) - USA - JUN 28, 2005
Has an almost skunky smell and poor taste. Overly carbonated and not much going for the palate. henry3r (586) - Wichita, Kansas, USA - JUN 11, 2005
The bottle poured a slightly cloudy copper-colored beverage covered with a modest white foamy head. The head retention was average but left no lacing on the glass. The aromas were straight forward, dominated by malt with notes of caramel. It had a medium body with a slightly creamy texture and lively carbonation. The flavor starts off slightly impressions of bittering hops mixed with caramel malt then settles down to a sweet, smooth malt middle and has a long slightly bitter finish.

Malty sweet and grainy aroma. Candy sweet, caramel and light toffee flavors. Some dusty hops at the finish. Cloying, sticky mouthfeel. I don’t care for this one to much. Skip it. Ratman197 (14826) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUN 8, 2005
Clear orange-amber with a white head. Caramel malt aroma with a hint of orange. Sweet malt flavor with very minamal hops. Bitter finish. blank (996) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUN 3, 2005
a very malty amber. good color and aroma. very heavy on the malts. probably a little over done. Decent, but labored to finish this as it got warm JK (6146) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - JUN 2, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 28, 2012 Draught at Breckenridge Brewery, Breckenridge, CO, October 2012, GABF week. Score improved slightly, still not a great beer. Light grain and some yeast, but very little flavor or aroma.
6/2/2005 3/3/3/2/9. Brown. Lightly hopped with a bitter taste, in fact this might be better classified as a bitter. Unremarkable but no noticeable flaws. Eyedrinkale (3214) - Astoria, New York, USA - MAY 26, 2005
22 oz bomber. Pours amber with a small head that settled quickly. The aroma is caramel, grain and faint hops. Taste is more grains with some corn and dishrag hops. Totally sucked.
