Bottle. Golden color with medium white head. Aroma matchs the roasted malt style. Medium flavor of malt with a medium body with short finish. Not nearly as strong as resident state leader Eliot Ness.

This one had a strange mouthfeel to me, hard to describe but I had trouble getting it past my tongue (?). Honey colored with an amber hue. Very syrupy malty flavor.

hopscotch (10983) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 10, 2004
Crystal clear, golden lager with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention and good, cumulus lacing. The nose is sweet and malty with notes of toffee and caramel. The flavor is sweet caramel, toffee and corn. Medium-bodied and creamy with mild carbonation. Lengthy, sweet finish. Overall, its cloyingly sweet. Not really my thing.

Jesus Jumpinz, is this one underrated or what?!! Deep gold/straw pour with medium, white head. Aroma of big honey, corn flakes, hopcit, apricot. Tastes very honeyish, with emerging apricot, hopcit, and karo syrup as it warms. A great golden lager. In fact, one of my top 10 golden lagers of all time.

12 oz. botle. Pours a hazy dark golden/light amber color with a small off white head. There is some sediment that comes with the pour. The aroma is light caramel, toasted bread, and a hint of bitterness. The flavor has caramel malt, honey sweetness, a light amount of fruit, and some bitterness in the finish. Medium bodied at best, slightly watery and thin. Not bad, maybe better than I expected.
