Had on tap at Sunset Sam’s at the Gaylord Hotel in Orlando, Fl. Pours a dark golden with a decent frothy white head. Aroma has some fresh lake water accents with a hint of caramel. Flavor has some caramel, with but o a hoppy citrusy back end. Clean, smooth palate. Refreshing. Holdwine (1232) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 28, 2005
Pleasant enough to drink large quantities hanging by the pool (not that I did...). Enough malt and hops play to realize it ain’t a macrobeer, but nothing else to make you jump up and down about. ukoolaid (580) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 14, 2005
On tap. Light amber ale with small white head. Aroma was malty. Taste is malty with a crisp slighty hopped finish. Nothing special but very drinkable. mkobes (2142) - paramus, New Jersey, USA - FEB 3, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 4, 2005 On tap at the Parrot Key. Clear orange in color with a thin head. Flavor is hoppy and malty. Clean mouthfeel. Citrus hops. Very refreshing. Nicely balanced beer. Slightly bitter. Enjoyable beer.

I had this on tap in Key West. It tastes great next to Budweiser et al. This beer was a cloudy amber with a nice little head that laced a little bit. Had just the right mix of hoppiness and lightness for easy drinking. Slightly bitter, but that’s okay for me.

On tap everywhere in Key West. I drank a lot of this at the Green Parrot. Very light and easy to drink. Agreeable. Not a lot of character. Basically, it’s really good. At being average. SpringsLicker (3641) - Tennessee, USA - JUN 29, 2004
Thanks to the Tampa Trader - MattA!!Slightly hazy deep amber color with an average off white head. Aroma is malty with just the slightest hop aroma. More fruit aroma than hop aroma. The hops exit completely by tasting time and the malt gives way to a watery finish. Refreshing if uneventful light ale. lilannie (384) - Adamstown, Maryland, USA - MAY 23, 2004
Aroma: bananas, carmel malts, vanilla, shoes--smells like a fruit conglomerate that was left out to ferment
Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 19, 2004
Appearance: murky brown, small, white head
Flavor: very weak and watery. some yeast and alcohol flavors. tastes like hydrogen peroxide, bread, and chocolate
Palate: smooth, fizzy, yeasty finish
Light amber gold with a perceptibly sweet aroma. Slight metallic taste at first, followed with a hint of fruit, lots of hops, bitter malt, and wheat. Well carbonated. Slightly sour and bitter, not a very good balance between flavors. 3fourths (9347) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 25, 2004
Dark red and murky. Musty hop and peach aroma, some malts but with a dominant strawberry and banana flavor. Light lemons as well, maybe some pineapple. Nothing really mixes well, it's a clusterfuck of citrus fruit and it doesn't really do anything. Spicy yeast in the finish. Thanks to Matta for sending this.
