1" white head atop a very clear straw gold brew... no lacing at all. Aroma is a metallic mix of pale malts and corn... not DMS... just corn... only the bare slightest touch of citrus hops... uninspiring. Flavor is the same as the nose but with more maltiness... the light/medium body is the biggest attribute of an otherwise very very average brew... On a positive note, this brew does taste pretty fresh.

On tap at brewery. Light, too light, not enough flavor, but would sit against any macro lager. Not much else to say, but this ones also on the bland side.

My beer doesnít look like the others. Go figure. Brew is quite hazy and gold going brown with a small white cap that fades to a ring. Leaves some small slippery spotty lacing. Aroma is very interesting and I will have to say that Iíve never smelt anything like this before. Kinda powerdery, bready malts, vanilla, odd and very fruity hops - nectarine?? blueberries?? I dunno. Maybe a fruit with more of a nutty quality. Taste is also bizzare. Bready / grainy malts, thereís that odd sweet nutty fruit again. Too bad itís on the watery side - a letdown after smelling my glass. Has a zippy hop taste or it is aftertaste? How odd. Thin mouthfeel, tiny carb bubbs and lots of them on the swish, finishes zippy but watery. Has a quickly fading aftertaste of, well, nothing. Very unique brew. I recommend getting this just for itís interesting mix of qualities.

3/8/08 On draught at the Sun Valley Lodge. Aroma is corny, sweet, fruity, with very low hop flora. Appearance is hazy gold with a low white head. Flavor is very sweet with high caramel and medium bittering. Mouthfeel is lightly creamy, medium/low bodied with a moderate carb feel. Overall, one of the best light lagers Iíve had in years.

On tap at brewpub. Pours out a light gold. Topped with a nice white head. I donít even want to say much. It is like a micro bud.

The 2nd Sun Valley beer that was brought back from a recent trip to ID. The aroma was really bready and fruity. Very enticing nose. Appearance was clear yellow with a nice head. Mouthfeel was soft and round, light and refreshing. The beer had a nice hoppy bite that matched well with the sweet malts making this one really excellent session beer.

Bottle: Clear dark gold color with a fragile, bubbly white head that dissipates quickly. The aroma is that kind that gives you a sick stomach -overly sweet grains, a little skunk and some aluminum. The taste is a little better than the aroma. It seems to be dominated by malts and a corn flavor. The feel is ok and leaves a not too bad aftertaste in your mouth.

ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - OCT 2, 2006
Bottled. Pale yellow pour with a white head. Malty and somewhat fruity aroma. Clean, malt forward beer. A pleasant surprise.

tomciccateri (1034) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - AUG 10, 2006
In a 12-oz. bottle in Boise, Idaho (hotel). Poured with deep gold color with a slight white head. An early malty aroma matched with a light body and well-carbonated light malty-sweet flavor. Finished on the dry side.

ontario102 (794) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 19, 2006
Sweet, bready-grain nose; clean, toasty flavor without alot of charactor; faint, spicy hop finish with a ghosty bitterness; quite decent when compared with some of their other offerings, and not at all a bad brew. Very drinkable.
