Sathorael (146) - Oceanside, California, USA - DEC 4, 2012
Not a lot to say. This beer is not an American strong ale, that’s for sure. Better then the breweries other offerings for the most part. No chill haze or massive off flavors. I would consider trying this again.

brokensail (9944) - Orange County, California, USA - APR 21, 2011
A: The pour is amber in color with a small off-white head. S: Smells rather hoppy. Citrus, grass, and herbs are all there. There’s a touch of oak in there and a fair amount of sweet malts. Toffee and brown sugar seem to be there as well as a light fruitiness. T: Bready malts, light fruits, and some sugar give this one a decent amount of sweetness. Charred oak and vanilla are there and the hop flavors are also present--grass and straw for the most part. M: Medium in body with a medium level of carbonation. O: Not awful, but really unimpressive and underwhelming in all aspects.

Oakquinox. Cloudy orange, white head. Nose is light fruits and malts. Flavor is rich bready malts, vanilla and oak tones prominent, finishes smooth with minimal warmth. Medium body and carbonation. A flavorful and oaky beer that is easy drinking with light fruit accents.
