Just have to brag a little. Trying this clone for first time tonight and not only is it great tasting, but probably the closest clone I have made yet!
Taste is very very close, and color is dead on, head is pretty close too. I don't pour the clone quite as aggressive since it was my first one, and last beer was over carbed.

Thanks!

I was very impressed. Wish I could say it was mine, but I found it online somewhere.
I'm going to make another batch and keg it next time.

This is one of my favorite any day commercial beers. Care to share the recipe?

Absolutely!

1lb Cara Pils
1lb Flaked Rice
Steeped at 155 for 25-30 min

3.3 malt amber LME

2lb malt amber DME

1oz Perle 60min
1oz Saaz flameout

WLP 002

I did late liquid extract addition at flameout, and 1tsp Irish moss at 15 min
And I used rice syrup solids instead of flaked rice. (LHBS didn't have flaked rice) Also 1lb.

Fermented around 66-68 for 3 weeks primary, 3 weeks secondary. Very little sediment in the bottle. After three weeks conditioning it's very good, may need one more week till it hits its peak.
