Pours a pleasing light golden, with an amply fluffy head. The aroma is of dusty straw, lemon, and rising dough; the flavor is mild, slightly bitter (in a very pleasant way) and not at all sweet. The beer is watery and slight under-carbonated in the mouth. The finish is a long and gentle taste of bitter hops.
Unfortunately, the beer itself is just not very exciting and it doesn’t really compete with the German pilsners. Sure, it goes down smooth on a hot day, and the long dry finish deserves accolades, but to me this is not so different from a typical American macrobrew done with a microbrewer’s attention to detail and quality.
Gold, fast fading white head, no bead.Spicy hop nose. Peppery hop profile,lots of malt to balance, light,lasting hop end BeerandBlues2 (13803) - Escondido, California, USA - JUN 26, 2005
Tap @ 16th Colorado Brewfest. Pours gold to bronze with a huge whtie foamy head. Ctirus hop malt aromas with a faint yeast nose. Hoppy rind and malt flavor. Light bodied and spicy palate. KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - JUN 13, 2005
A great beer. Nice underrepresentation of hops and malt, yet they forge an identity all their own. Hints of sweetness and flora captivate the drinker. A high-quality brew. alaskanwarren (286) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 16, 2005
Crisp aroma, slightly bitter, but little-to-no hops to speak of in the aroma. Golden color and white head. Slight malts on the taste and grainy bitterness. Not bad. Pleasant mouthfeel, crisp finish. Quite drinkable, but not a favorite.

The bottle poured a beautiful, crystal clear, golden beer with a pure white small foamy head that lasted for a while leaving nice lacing. The aroma was unexpectedly pleasant. Instead of being the typical pilsner skunk, it had a low-key maltiness with delicate undertones of fruit. The mouthfeel is light and wet. The taste starts off slightly sweet with notes of apple and banana coming out in the middle. The finish is slightly bitter, long lasting and continues to have very slight notes of fruit. frylock (1144) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 11, 2005
Some grainy malts with hints of lemon and grassy hops in the aroma. Golden color with a frothy white head. Some malt, though a bit bland and almost stale tasting, Moderate bitterness. Finishes crisp. Meh. Oakes (18756) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 10, 2005
Golden colour with a soft sparkle. Well-balanced aroma with herbal hops and fresh bread. The soft body is accented towards the malts, which unfortunately don’t come off with the same fresh expressiveness that they do in the aroma. More like dull, day-old bread. There is some hoppy crispness in the finish to salvage things a bit. Ray1975 (251) - Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, USA - MAY 6, 2005
Pours a golden straw color with a small white head. Aroma of straw and a bit of malt. Flavor is a bitter grassy flavor with a bit of malt. Medium mouthfeel with good carbonation. Not exciting but a very refreshing beer. fuzzywasabeer (35) - boise, Idaho, USA - APR 27, 2005
light gold in color, smells of malt and grass, no exotic flavors, a little bitter a little dry, not a bad offering
