I originally sampled this beer on 17 May 2003. I am writing this review from my notes.
Appearance: This pours a clear amber color with a small head.
Flavor: it tastes crisp clean flavor. Nothing spectacular, but not bad. I'm sure that before the growth of microbrews that this beer really stood out. Now, it's pretty middle of the road.

Serving type: bottle
