Solid. Middle of the road, for a
microbrew. THE BEER BARON (275) - Wisconsin, USA - NOV 27, 2001
A good Pale Ale. I am not a fan of this style, but I find this beer very drinkable. popilius (61) - Chicagoland, Illinois, USA - AUG 20, 2002
A somewhat hearty Midwestern ale. It’s honey-colored with a fine sweet finish. Good with Chicago pizza and hot dogs. High on carbonation, though. jaymobrown (1845) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 2, 2002
Golden-amber color with a medium, creamy head. Strong taste of hops, but little else to enjoy. As someone from the Chicago-area, I’m partial to this brew in comparison to the American standards and pils that the city usually drinks. A no thrills ale that is good to drink. Indra (2711) - Suburbia, Kansas, USA - JAN 16, 2003
Sampled on draught. Malty, lightly fruity aroma with a hint of caramel. Light to medium amber color, slightly hazy, with a small but creamy head. Flavor is uncomplicated, with a bit of lightly fruity, caramel malt and a gentle hop bitterness. Finish is mostly hoppy and smooth. Light to medium body. Palate is a bit on the thin side. A definite session beer.

Nice amber color with a respectable head. Nice lace. A bit of hops and malt up front, a bit bitter in back that lingers. Very drinkable and yet very unremarkable. More hops would make this a better brew.

malt in aroma with hint of hops. very smooth and malty just enoughj hops to break up the maltiness but not to add anthing special to this beer, PorterPounder (7971) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 17, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2013 Rerate Revisit after 10 years - light copper pour, snow white head, neutral aroma, decent light citrus bitterness. Still decent and session worthy. Original 3.6 Clean hoppy, fruity aroma with a flowery undertone. Decent lacing on the pillowy off-white head. Attractive dark orange appearance - lots of bubble action. Subdued hop flavor with a bit of a malty undertone. Citrusy notes present themselves in the aftertaste. Overall an excellent APA. DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 4, 2003
Hoppy nose, orange/copper colour, with a small custard head. Malt/hop flavour with some citrus. Balanced, with nice bitterness. Pretty good.
