Clear Orange, with a large rocky white head. Bready, peppery aroma. Smooth and clean, with a bready, toasty flavor. Some mild bite in the finish. Nicely quaffable. vyvvy (6714) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 29, 2006
Pours copper with a good sized soapy light tan head. The aroma is grainy pale malt, light butter and light spice. Medium body with lots of semi-soft carbonation. Starts wtih smooth malt, butter, some spice and light smooth fruitiness. If this had more of a grainy taste and less butteriness it would help tremendously. The finish adds a bit of spicy hops. An okay lager. hayduke (5634) - Eureka, California, USA - DEC 22, 2006
Bottle. Pours a rich golden color, with a foamy white head and decent lacing. Nose of hops, malts and not much else. Mouthfeel is clean and crisp. Flavor is just what you would expect from a lager. Pretty darn nice for a lager. bhensonb (15745) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 17, 2006
Decent malt aroma. Darkly pale golden color. A frothy white head that sticks a while and even laces a bit. Swishes to a decent mouth feel. It finishes with enough hop to balance malt. The carbonation is not overwhelming. I just can’t figure out how to describe the start - everything seemed to arrive at once. Good for a lager. BückDich (5477) - McCall, Idaho, USA - DEC 12, 2006
Bottle: Bronze color, light head and lacing. Nose is floral and hoppy, nice malts, some toast, the flavor is balanced, very rich in pale malt with a balanced hop background. Medium body, solid finish. Tasty lager. Premium indeed.

The aroma has both malt and hops in plentiful amounts giving it a sweet yet grassy quality. It also has the smell of leaves. The appearance is deep gold with a sight bit of amber. The head is small but foamy and persistent. The flavor is sweet with a hint of toasted malt and just enough bitterness to keep the sugars from being cloying. The palate is smooth. This was an enjoyable lager. daboskabouter (1469) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 22, 2006
Golden colour with little to no fizz. The nose is slightly fruity with some apple. A spritzy body is sprinkled lightly with fruit and a light bitterness towards the end. A below average, uninspired lager. Tmoney99 (14952) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 11, 2006
Bottle. Poured copper color with an average off-white frothy head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate toasted maltand hoppy aroma. Medium body. Medium balanced flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. zach8270 (4021) - Henrietta, New York, USA - OCT 9, 2006
(bottle - 12 oz) Cloudy orange in color with a thin and fizzy white head. Aroma is slightly grassy and lightly sweet with some decent hops under it all. Flavor begins with a nice and bitter hoppy flavor that goes away quickly to a malty middle and a fizzy and kind of sweet finish. Aftertaste is dry and grainy with some bitterness. muzzlehatch (4969) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 8, 2006
12 oz bottle (Beers of the World Oct 2006) served a bit above fridge temp in a shaker glass at my friend Kathy’s house in St Louis Park, MN as I’m typing this. Very clear amber-bronze with little to no head and faint lacing....faint grassy-caramel aroma offers no real depth or interest....extremely bland on the tongue, not really much more to it than typical macro lagers, perhaps a faint hint of smoky/roasty malts, a touch of late acrid bitterness, and more body than you’d find in the multinational "pilsners" -- but at twice the price, this isn’t any more worthwhile than swill. Nothing here folks, move along....
