Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine June 2007.

He'Brew's first creation, kosher as well. Contract-brewed, though without a doubt part of the craft-beer industry. At least in our eyes.

This beer boasts a deep amber color that is perfectly clear and stunningly bright when held to light. The head shows two fingers after a hard pour, with good retention. Malty and creamy aroma with a hint of hops. Sublime crispness adds to its drinkablity. Solid medium body.

Malt character makes it way around a few times with bready, caramel and biscuity flavors. The hop bitterness seems modest at first but then sneaks in with a prickly bitterness from middle to end with fine herbal, woody and citric flavors. Toasted biscuit flavors and a mild fruitiness share the same space in the drying finish.

Nothing over the top, which is something that gets overlooked--just an easy- drinking and delicious yet somewhat complex ale. Chalk this one up for brunch, and pair it with an everything bagel with cream cheese, lox, red onion, tomato and capers.

A hoppy brew to say the least, west coast style all the way. I could see pairing this with some knishes and a beef brisket sandwich on rye.

Pours a slightly hazy, watery brown with a frothy quarter inch cream head that lingers.

Muted citrus, resin, and toasted, nutty caramel malt form the aroma. There's a hint of chocolate.

Grapefruit pith and lemon underlie a strong, nutty malt backbone, becoming a touch resiny and bitter in the dry finish.

Body is moderate to a bit thin, with moderate carbonation and a fairly stringent finish.

Hops and malt are fairly well balanced. The astringent finish is somewhat offputting. I'm not a huge lemon fan, but the malt backbone is nice.
