Very drinkable beer. Great red color and decent head. Good malty start followed by slightly fruity, citrussy hop flavor. little bite to the hops. very clean finish. beerslayer (753) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 11, 2002
Nice clean tasting ale. Went down quick. I think this ale would pair better with a steak because I had it with spicy food and it was overpowerded by the spicy food. CE619 (81) - san diego, California, USA - AUG 7, 2002
Nice honey color. nothing distinctive about this beer, outside of a slight sweetness. Tom Servo (424) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - AUG 6, 2002
A nice red. Has a bit of a lacking flavor. But it has it’s moments. Nice head, and a smooth finish. obxdude10 (2324) - Pottstown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 28, 2002
Dark red in color, kept a very nice carbonated head throughout the pint, a bit of a dry taste, very smooth bity aftertaste

Hops first, then a malty finish. Malty aroma. Nice amber color. Another in-between beer. Not bad at all, but nothing to put it up there as ’special’. Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUL 26, 2002
Re-Rate 07/26/02: Nice amber color, large beige head and lots of lace. Nose is malt, the front is malt sweet, the top is light, the finish has a nice spicy hop bite, dry, acidic. A decent beer, and one I have liked for many years, not great mind you just pleasant to drink, when nothing seems right. Ranks #794 on my master beer list.

Amber, small head, good lacing. Medium body with nice light caramel malt flavor followed by a nice thin fruity hop finish. one of the more interesting ambers that i’ve had. anticop (79) - Porterville, California, USA - JUL 16, 2002
preety good ale. i will have to drink more. Zach Diesel (906) - Sisters, Oregon, USA - JUL 14, 2002
extra fine sediment, but a beer not worthy of it’s classic dead shirt parody.
