Nice golden/yellow coloring. Some citrusy hints on the nose blend with the light hop characteristics to make a nice aroma (peaches?). Hops are more evident to the taste than on the nose. Clean drink but a slightly bitter finish. A good summer pale. papajohn (1250) - San Diego (Mira Mesa), California, USA - MAR 13, 2003

Orange gold color. Small head. Aroma is malty. A medium bodied pale ale. Malty and hoppy. Malts are nutty and fruity – mangos, apricots and peaches. Hops are piney and grapefruity. Well balanced. Nice beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter. 21iceman40 (1735) - Grafton, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 19, 2003
This one was descent. I was surprised that it wasn't all hopped out like most SD brews. Some citrus notes, the color was a weak yellow, not much head. I look forward to having more brews from green flash

A very subtle aroma, a touch of maltiness comes through with a dash of hops in the background. A very nice, long lasting, bright white head gives some interesting etchings on the side of the glass. It pours a bright and clear gold, the color of apple juice. A bit bitey in the beginning, it slides out into a rounded malty end. The beginning hop attack is rather piney, but I could stand a bit more a bit sooner. A good pale with an interesting balance, pretty easy drinking with a good flavor.

Somewhere between passing out and cursing at Paypal i actually managed to throw down som perfectly legible notes on this one last night. The pour is a very straight golden, with a non-existant head and let me tell you i tried to get one out of her..i mean the bottle!!! The aroma was very pleasant with raw malt being the predominant smell. Others include peach, doughiness, chessebread (since i happened to be eating some and compared aromas..ha ha) and maybe citrus. The taste is a peachy, malty combo up front which i really really liked. It was nothing sophisticated, but it possessed a modest candy-like sweetness which carressed my tongue. The finish was a dry bittering of a slight hop character. Call me nuts, i liked it. JCW (1278) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 6, 2003
I may have to mow the lawn more often. Golden in color, carbonated. Little or no head. Light Citrus flavor. Somewhat bitter for the flavor. Pretty good brew. DaSilky1 (2606) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 21, 2002
