Visiting CO and Sunday i found out about the 3.2 ABW law. Went to a supermarket in hopes of finding something other than watered down 3.2 bud/coors etc (which seems to be the only beer you can buy on a Sunday here) - and found the lower ABV version of this beer. That said - it was not bad, yet nothing special either, but i may be tempted to try the 5.6 version if i find it in a single or visit the brewery to compare. jskendzel (602) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 1, 2003
Decent aroma and a nice amber color. Typical "average" beer and like many others I've had from the region: quite watery and lacking and depth. A decent beer to drink with dinner but nothing to speak highly of. DragonStout (1416) - Groveport, Ohio, USA - JUL 7, 2003
Very hoppy on the nose.Pours golden ale with a thin head that did not last.This beer had bite. VTHopHead (1511) - Seymour, Tennessee, USA - AUG 8, 2004
Bottle - Pours a copper-red color with a thin whitish head. Aroma is of spicy hops and a mild amount of malt. Flavor is just about all hops and bitterness. Finish is bitter with a slight amount of sweetness at th end. JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - NOV 10, 2004
Honey colored body with abundant bubblage. Foam head builds to a massive stiff peak. Even when poured gently it still takes up 75% of the glass. Smell is powerfully strong, roasted/sweet hops. Taste is watery hops with butter, dough and roasted malts. Nowhere near as good as smell. Some tart acidic citric flavors, nothing else really.

Interesting aroma - tangy fruit, hops, pleasant diacetyl, some raisins and darker malts. Very persistant head which pours tall. Coppery brew, bad label. Dry, grassy, the darker malts come through over whatever boring light malts were used. Not very hoppy at all. Thinnish body, quick green nut finish. Some chemical in the aftertaste.

Pretty much an average American pale ale. Mostly overwhelming flower-hoppiness, maybe some malt in the middle as per the commercial description. JK (6158) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - MAR 13, 2005
The primary aroma is hops, but there is also metal. This is very smooth, and there is a sweet hop flavor. SpringsLicker (3638) - Tennessee, USA - APR 12, 2005
This starts off with a sparkling clear body of brilliant copper under a large rocky off white head.
Light perfume in the hops aroma.
The flavor started sour turning an astringent bitter that ended thin and chalky. Very disappointing.
