12 oz bottle. Hazy dark gold with an off white head above lively carbonation.FlacoAlto (4176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - OCT 14, 2010
Sour bready malt aroma, cereal grain and spicy hops.
Flavor is pretty non-descript. Grainy mostly, a little spicyness.
Finish is a touch dry.
A solid pour into my 25cl tulip glass produces a fat-two-finger thick, pale, off-white colored head. The beer is a deep gold, almost copper color and shows a hazy, dark gold color when held up to the light. The aroma smells of spicy hops, with perhaps a touch of lemon zest, sweet grainy, almost corn like malt and has a touch of cracker like grain to it. The corn-like note in the nose gets more pronounced the more I smell this beer, and, while it is not bad, it is a touch off-putting.Rusty (1547) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - SEP 16, 2010
Crisp and cool as this first hits my tongue, this is straight from my food fridge so it is a bit colder than my typical beer. The finish really reminds me of the macro-stuff I drank too much of at an early age; slightly metallic, very grassy and with a not very pleasant finish. This is certainly a good remake of a long dead macro-lager. I thought I heard this was an all malt formulation, so it is impressive that Nimbus got this to taste so much like a adjunct laden cheap macro. Much kudos for hitting that bench mark, but this unfortunately means this beer is definitely not my cup of tea. Too grassy, with a definite DMS edge to it that becomes too dominant in the finish along with the metallic hops. There is a soft bitterness here, but it really could use quite a bit more. Light bodied and for that reason it is pretty drinkable, though the flavor seems to get in the way of this.
Not really very good, and definitely the worst beer that Nimbus makes, but I also get the feeling that this is pretty close to the dead-macro beer that they were trying to clone, but I still have to ask why?
Slightly hazed yellow orange brown dirty water with a small white head. Aroma is malt, hops, grain. Flavor is malt, touch of hops, watery and easy to drink. Simple straight forward and refreshing. Good lawnmower beer.

Bottle pours pale gold with a white head. I basically brought this home out of sheer curiosity. If this is a true representation of what was being made back then, not too shabby. But by today’s standards, this really doesn’t have a whole hell of a lot going on. Easy drinking on a hot summer day or when you are in need of a retro flashback. cbkschubert (2901) - BFE, Arizona, USA - AUG 21, 2010
12 oz. bottle from Beverage House in Sierra Vista - I actually had this beer on draught at the Nimbus Bistro a few months ago. The bottled version is pretty much the same. Has a very slight hazy to its golden color. Thin white head and very little lacing. Aroma and flavor is light grain and herbal hops. It’s not sweet or soapy. Medium body. It doesn’t have a lot going on, but there are no obvious flaws. Worth a try
