1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Purchased a bottle in Ann Arbor. Poured a hazy light gold with little head. The aroma is oranges with some flowers. The taste is taosted bread with some peanuts and a salty finish. There is also some grapefruit goodness here. Not as bad as the ratings would show.
Sharp hop aroma of grapefruit-orange-citrus and floral character with a jolt of butterscotch over a tired malt base. Hazy golden body with low but lasting, fine-bubbled, white head. Grapefruit hop flavour is sharp with fairly assertive bitterness, strong butterscotch and very little malt character to note. Light body with strong carbonation and a slick, oily texture. Half pint glass. Just below cellar temperature. Bottle (Bello Vino, Ann Arbor, MI, Jul-05). bipolar1 (268) - Hancock, Michigan, USA - MAR 8, 2005
This beer just flat out sucks. The label is cheesy!! Can you picture being seen holding a bottle of this? Something Donald Trump would be drinking... unclebleen (620) - California, USA - SEP 5, 2004
This is a really poor pale ale. Like a poor homebrew or something. Grainy and harsh. mc5 (11) - USA - MAR 29, 2004
Bottle. Not much here, somewhat watery, little hops. Maybe just a bad bottle.

Aroma is slightly hoppy, somewhat similar to Molson Golden. Appearance is slightly cloudy with little head. As has been mentioned before, this tastes like "hop water" with next to no malt character to back it up. Corporate Jim tastes like a corporate product.

Watery, grainy and all around poor beer. The label may be the worst I've seen. No body to speak of, thin and gritty. jaymobrown (1845) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 26, 2003
This one was just silly all the way around. Bad approach. Clean, miniscule hops some citrus. Poor. Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - DEC 27, 2002
I'm usually more forgiving than this, but this is hop pellet juice and water. Worse misfire than Dark Horse's Crooked Tree IPA. Nightoneobob (37) - USA - DEC 6, 2002
watery. Off tastes and bland.............................................
