3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught Small, off-white head over amber-orange ale. Hops, C-hops, but in a discreet citrussy aroma; as well as green apple ester. Very smoky taste, hopscake - even a lot. Cigarette ashes it really are. Quite a lot of taste for such a low-alcohol beer (the brewery blackboard said 3.5 percent!), but the finish is a bit watery after all, and it is discreet - maybe too discreet, but indeed a very flavourful "session"beer.

At BPB. Hazed yellow orange pour with gooey lace. Sweet malt aorma backed by solid hops. Very hoppy but good malt balance. A lemony hard bitter finish (nice) just a bit fizzy with medium body. Another very refreshing drinker that has a lot to offer.

Tap @ Ballast Point. Poured a mostly clear golden color with an off-white head. The aroma was citrusy and hop forward. Citrus flavor that was light with a semi-sweet malt base. Bitter dry finish with a light body.

UPDATED: AUG 1, 2008 Taster at Ballast Point/Home Brew Mart. Nice light drinkable brew. Not much to say other than its a definite session beer that has some decent flavor. Great Session beer.

On tap @ Ballast Point (Linda Vista) - Pours a clear golden color with a small off white head. Aroma is hops and light esters. Flavor is hops, light esters, and light caramel malt. Nice balance. A light to medium body beer. Very easy drinking. This would be a good beer to convert the non-believers.

This was a damn good session ale. Very hoppy both in nose and flavor. Some sweet bready malt, but very mild. Body is very light, but still pretty dry and resiny. The beer was copper in color.

Tap poured a clear gold/copper color with a nice head. The aroma was full of mixed hops. Flavor had a smooth bitterness and good hoppy flavor. Not much of a malt profile and a nice clean fermentation from the two yeast strains used. Nice easy drinking session pale.
