Aroma - barely there - but it is fresh. Nice cloudy appearnce, thick creamy head, good lacing. Starts off with a bit-o-honey taste to it and then the hoppiness takes over in a pleasant and subtle way. Excellent mouthfeel - coats your mouth - thick.

The bottle says that it is the "epitome of refreshment. Although it wasnt bad I would rather have one of my white trash american standards like PBR, Old Mil, Budweiser or Schmidt anyday. Jayson2425 (167) - Box Elder, South Dakota, USA - APR 25, 2004
Has a nice tint of an ale flavor. Little expensive but not too bad. A dandy aroma which excited me greatly nick76 (4399) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 18, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 8, 2006 I really like this one and I am surprised that its not rated higher. The aroma is like hay and herbal hops. The appearance is a nice hazy gold and the flavor is unique and enjoyable. It has a light hopping along with a salty cheese taste. But best of all this one has a very strong malt taste that lingers through the finish. Great beer! philbertk (1873) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 25, 2010

Decent summer brew. Interesting malt flavors with some caramel and toasted notes and a little bit of Saaz bite. Nice quencing brew with some fruitiness as well. DeKreeft2799 (18) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 1, 2001
