Bottle. Golden in color with a light foamy off-white head. Malty and dusty aroma. Smooth light lager with a hint of fruit at the finish. A fuller body than most lagers, but it fails in many of the same places. beerguy101 (5360) - Newark, California, USA - NOV 21, 2003
Orange gold color. Small quickly disappointing head. Aroma is malty and fruity. Medium bodied amber. The malts are mild, nutty and sweet. Hops are slightly bitter. Has a definite lager like quality to it, with small bubbly champagne like carbonation. Mild flavors. Fruity and dry. This would make a nice summer session beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and dry. Aftertaste is slightly sweet. GreatStelle (363) - Chico, California, USA - OCT 15, 2003
It looks more like an amber than a red. Almost no head. A bit hoppy aroma. Really not much aroma. Hoppy taste that has a good bitter bite. I don't think this is a lager. It's more of amber/pale. Definitly different. But it's good. rodolito (163) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 30, 2003
It poured a clear golden color with an amber hue. I didn't see any red in it. Thick white head (small bubbled foam on top of large bubbles). The head lasted for a bit then faded out. Aroma of faint noble hops that quickly disappeared and malt (toasty grains and toffee). First flavor was of sweetness, then grainy malt, caramel and a faint taste of honey. Well balanced hoppy bitterness in the back end. Sweet, dry finish. Light to moderate mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
