I originally sampled this beer on 10 May 2003. I am writing this review from my notes.
Appearance: bottle: It has a clear yellow color with a frothy head. Flavor: It's malty on the tongue w/ some sweetness. This is a nicely done beer. I'll pick some more up when I'm in Phoenix again

3.3/5  rDev -1.5%

The beer pours a nice crystal clear golden amber color with a moderate head and fine lace sheets that cling to the glass. Malt pervades the nose, citrus like tones, crisp and clean, the front lightly sweet, the top skimpy. The hops impressive in their bite, potently carbonated, dry somewhat bitter aftertaste, and the high ABV, certainly is felt.
