This is a nice beer, randomly found in a store refridgerator. Great amber/dark-brown color, and sweet richness. An example for others to see what a beer can taste like without going over the top with experimentation. Hints of grape, even, in the palate? A nice beer, one I would have again, esp in a pint at a bar.

A nice malty and sweet beer. Could be a little more powerful, but as it is now it is a good thirst quencher. People went crazy because I started to drink it on the street. What the hell is wrong with that?? Why the fu*k is it not allowed??

Brownish head with a amber body. Almost no aroma. A little taste of hops and malt. Nice aftertaste that lasts a while.

willblake (2664) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - JAN 14, 2004
tasted a long time ago (95/6?)...Bottle. Kind of reddish amber color and large head with giant soapy bubbles that flee the scene quickly. Smells malty, mildly citrus sweet, and a touch hoppy. Pretty full-bodied, but strange medicinal acidic and rancid buttery taste behind the floral and fruit. Dry, acid/bitter finish. Not great, but cheeseburger makes it better.

a maroon copper color to it with a lill head. A nice sweet, hoppy aroma. I though this would suck, but its really good. Smarties in the body, not too much water, most satisfactory as far as a nice relaxing brew. An absolutely solid amber.

3.6
Andrew196 (2014) - Katy, Texas, USA - SEP 2, 2003
Amber in color with a brief beige head. Sweet malts, hops, and honey in the aroma. Very plain throughout, but it had a pleasant, crisp maltiness to it that was very refreshing. Probably a gateway beer of sorts.

2.4
BBB63 (6567) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - AUG 14, 2003
Picked this one up in a mixer sixer, never had one of their beers before. Medium amber hue with a small rocky head and some lacing. Aroma hinted of roasted malt, nuts, butter, and light pine. Weak taste more hops than malt, acidic with a bit of bite on finish, dry. Thin to medium-bodied, watery and fizzy mouthfeel. Very average beer, would not seek out.

3.1
Dorwart (2610) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - JUL 21, 2003
Decent head with great carbonation. Color is a medium/light amber with good clarity. Aroma is malty with a trace of hops. Flavor is a little thin but well balanced between the grain and the hops. Slight bitter finish from the hops which is nice a leaves a plesant aftertaste. A good all around beer.

Bottle. Hard for me to believe the other ratings here, I thought this stuff was awful. Sour flavor that leads into a nasty aftertaste, slimy mouthfeel, weakly fruity aroma, some effervesence that's more annoying than anything else...I just couldn't get into it and now I'm going to have to go downstairs and drink a Celebrator Dopplebock that I had been saving for Friday to wash the taste out of my mouth. Dammit, now I'm going to have to go to the store and pick another one up tomorrow.
