UPDATED: OCT 8, 2007 First one I had was bought in British Columbia now we can get this brew in Cowtown. To me it seems like it has lost the hop crispness it used to have....maybe that is just me. A Classic for sure. Page 151 Michael Jackson’s Great Beer Guide only 416 out 500 Classic Brews to go.

Absolutely delightful. I’ll never tire of drinking this wee beauty. Fairly lively and a good head.

Well balanced and round taste, with a good yeast part. 8.5% alcohol but the taste doesn’t show the alcohol level! Good foam.

Pours a bright clear yellow gold, dense white head, lots of bubbles in the brew, sour fragrance with citrus, light fruit, malt and pear, small hop bouquet, sweetness in the nose, taste of pilsner malt, pepper, sweet, sour and lemon on the tongue, bubbly in the mouth.

Delicious beer. Light hoppy herbalness shines though clean grains and rich yeast flavors. Just superb.

afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - FEB 11, 2007
Pours a clear pale yellow with a large white rocky head that looks like whipped egg whites that leaves great lacing. Aroma of herbal hops, pear, and citrus. Tastes of pear and slightly sweet pilsner malt with a wonderfully balanced hop bitterness. Very high carbonation that tingles the tongue combined with good bitterness that leads to an overall dry character. A very refreshing beer even though it has such a high ABV.

Pale yellow with a very thick head. Lots of herbal notes. Slightly metallic, full bodied with a nice bitter aftertaste.

Translucent yellow. A frothy mountain range makes up the head (don’t pour to hard). Interesting light ale with noticable alcohol. Unique and flavorful.

Not as good as I expected. Nice white head with excellent and lovely fruity finish.
