apricot golden with a smudge of haze, butter colored head muscles up to a half inch, then settles to the thickness of cigarette paper. peach and orange caramel malts, even a touch of pulp from ruby grapefruit in a good full aroma. a dried-blood metallic sour effect is noted, but it's too remote to be unpleasant. orange danish, with sweetness moderated by a shallow speedbump of hops. very tasty in a light bodied refreshment, tho the finish is only the briefest reminder of orange seeds.

They are selling this in a wooden box as "Historic Beers" My reasearch here at Ratebeer informs me this company has been out of business for two years!!!!! The creditors figured they could repackage it, haul it to where no one knows about the brewery being out of business and market a bunch of stale, out of date product and recoup some of their losses.
Tastes like an old, average, American Light Lager. No Vienna here anyway. Hairofthedog (419) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 28, 2005
The aroma was a slight tea note w/ citrus, and a malty sweetness. The flavor was pretty much the same. The beer poured a pale orange/yellow color w/ no head and very thin lacing. The mouthfeel was light and creamy. unclemattie (4406) - Georgia, USA - JUL 21, 2006
YES, the "Historical Beers of America" collection. My father got this wooden tool box thing of beer for xmas last year. "hey, you want half of this?" Are they that bad, Pop? Twist off caps...beer don’t no.2!
Golden in color. Lager malt aroma. nice white head. Creamer texture than most lagers.present malt flavor throughout. Much better than Bud! A Suprisingly good beer for this style. A really good lager. Axle3380 (95) - montvale, New Jersey, USA - JAN 7, 2002
not a bad beer...great malty flavor with good hops....not bad at all....looks dark but not a dark beer.....if this is what they think is a dark beer, they can do better than this.

Medium gold color with modest head, sparse lacing and a mild spicy hop aroma with some fruitiness. Decent rounded malty flavor, caramely with a touch of acidity and a restrained bitterness, ok but weakly carbonated. IndianaRed (5030) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 6, 2006
Bottle Pours a crystal clear light amber. Small off white head and actually quite nice heavy lacing. Aroma of sweet light malts. Honey and cereal. Flavor is sweet again and has notes of honey and paper. Lightly hopped, but then again that is how you probly should hop this beer. Moderatly carbonated and silight corn chex aftertaste. Not unpleasant. Pretty good for the style even.

This actually surprised me a bit. The aroma was sweet malt with the faintest ghost of molasses. Medium gold. Dry malty, sunflower seeds, cereal, nutty sweetness. Good body, just a shade heavier than medium - oily consistancy, cereal in the back palate during the finish. If you’d told me that this was a decent Soviet-bloc lager from say, Czechoslovakia or Poland, I’d have believed it. The other half of PorterPounder’s toolbox allotment.

Sampler pack; Ok, read the previous posts. I have to say, the beer that I had, has a delightful fruity aroma, with complimenting taste, yet, malt taste is noticible. Head retention is good when poured properly, I would say medieum retention. Color is very nice for a lager, golden straw.....It is a tasty brew with even a nice after tatse. Great use of hop’s for this style. Would buy again. MIBRomeo (2579) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 17, 2011
Light wheat colored pour very clear a full soapy head and vicious carbonation throughout. Palate is much to thin (watery). Aroma of some sweet grains a hint of bread fades quickly. Taste is light sweet grains, very basic lager w/ a little extra sweetness. A simple easy to drink, unoffensive beer.
