3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draft at Good Beer, where it was called Mendocino Mellow. It looked suspiciously like a light green pale lager - but no worries, it turned out to be a tasty and fresh APA. Nicely hopped, with floral aromas and a light snap in the finish.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On draft at Tap 25. Wow, this was a weird one. It pours golden with a white head. The aroma was very confusing with some florals, butter, cotton candy and a little fruit. The flavor has more dry florals, but still has some butterscotch and caramel. Bready, floral finish. Below average for me.
