Sweet malty flavor, although perhaps a bit tame. It has a crisp hop finish, much like a typical American pale ale. Overall it's a good beer for the price. clvand0 (350) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - JUL 19, 2003
This beer pours a light amber color with a fizzy white head that disappears quickly. The aroma is not very strong, but it it a little fruity. The flavor is very malty and it has something odd in the aftertaste - possibly burned caramel mixed with citrus. Not a bad beer, but I don't particularly like it.

Golden coloured with good white head. Aroma of some fruit, butter and herbs. Taste is pretty malty with notes of butter. Some earthy notes of hops. Finish is too thin and sweet and do not last very long. DYCSoccer17 (3714) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 9, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 22, 2012 pours a slightly dark blonde with a delicate white head, that quickly disappears. Aroma is of malt and maybe some barley in there as well. Taste is malty, and i can see what the brewer means by a little sweetness up front--honey perhaps? The middle and end are rather indestinct which smoothen out into a pleasant creamy aftertaste. This is somewhat medium bodied and has a very pleasant palate. This beer is good. (6/3/8/5/15)~~~~~~~RE-RATE~~~~~~~~12 ounce bottle as a part of a mixed 12 pack. The aroma is soapy, buttery, sweet, and generally awful. Mild spicy hop kick. Otherwise, pretty bad. Transparent golden-colored body with a strong, fizzy off-white head and decent lacing. Starts sweet, sugary, and buttery. More butterscotch diacetyl in the middle. Finishes metallic, watery, and lightly spicy. Flawed. canary dog (784) - Rutland, Vermont, USA - JUL 8, 2003
A smooth, caramelly type of ale, not unlike Bass. Subdued hops. An almost sour, strongly carbonated finish.

No character at all. Not much to comment on. Tastes like a Canadien macro. A microbrew for the masses. ClarkVV (6957) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 2, 2003
Clear orange gold, with a medium white foamy head. Very little aroma, maybe some spicey hops aroma.
Initial taste is sour/bitter and combines a malt and hops palette. It transitions into a somewhat dry/buttery body, and has a slightly sour dissipating finish. Unfortunately it had a soapy aftertaste that lingered. The beer may not have been that fresh, so I shall have to try it again. hotstuff (5278) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JUN 23, 2003
When poured, this brew had a large white creamy head with small bubbles that lasted a good long time. This brew had good lacing to it and the body was clear with an amber hue. The flavor was smooth and lasted throughtout my rating of this brew. thedm (6320) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JUN 22, 2003
This brew poured a creamy white head of fine to largely sized bubbles that lasted a long time and left a good lacing. Its body was a clear thin amber-orange color. I thought this brew was very smooth from start to finish with a light bitter flavor throughout. It had a mild bread hop aroma to it that was not very complex and rather on the plain side.

This used to be an old favorite of mine some 10 or more years ago. And I remember it being better than this bottle I have now. How time changes. Anyway, a deep golden brew with an ESB like head to go along. Not much retention here and slight lacing. Aroma is bitter with slight hop and malt fragrance. Medium bodied and crisp, with a slightly dry finish. Flavor could be stronger and as I remember used to be quite hoppy on draught. not anything outstanding but there are so many better than this.
