Mediocre microbrew, not the worst I’ve tasted but with so much good stuff out there this one comes up short! This might do well in a beer challenged regional area.

Whoa - the cap blew off when I popped it. Just missed my head. This beer is amber with a huge off-white head. It looks good, but tastes sort of skunky. There is a fairly heavy malt base with some bitterness at the finish.

bhensonb (10699) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 24, 2008
12 oz bottle from BevMo (house beer?). Slightly hazy amber color with a flat white head. Floral or citrus hop (light) with some malt background. Near medium body with carbonation that prickles. Seems slightly gummy. Itís a bit short on ingredients, but finishes ok (bitter). Might be a bit overpriced for the flavor level, but itís not a bad thing.

Snojerk321 (2975) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 6, 2008
12oz bottle from BevMo. Just like the Amber, this one was like a watery version of Sierra Nevada. A lightly hopped nose with a watery/ slightly bitter finish.

um. I just drank a pretty good pale ale so this one just smells like burnt pasta and tastes like heffferveitzen blah.

trokini (1025) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 14, 2006
Average pale ale. Pours amber with a small head. Typical malt and hop profile for this genre. Nothing in the taste. Dull and flat.

barleyPops (1141) - Quad-Cities, Illinois, USA - AUG 9, 2006
thanks to Saarlander for the 12 oz. bottle. pours a rather dull amber gold with a fast fading head. very mild aroma and flavor of some caramel malt and grassy hops. dry crisp finish is nice, but overall just so-so.

redave (165) - squaw valley, California, USA - JUL 30, 2006
Cheap 12 pack box of 12 oz bottles at BevMo, Fresno. So... low expectations, that were met with surprise. Pours a darkish amber orange. [English style?] Aroma was light, but not bad smelling. Nice creamy head that lasted about half way down [slow drinking] Taste was OK, malty with some hops. Not too bad for a summer beer, Iím thinking. Not sure about itís true origins, some speculation that itís contract brewed? For the price, itís not bad.

winegarner (220) - san diego, California, USA - APR 16, 2006
Kegged, poured a clear amber with a thick, very long lasting head. Very full bodied with a stong malty sweetness. Mild bitterness and hop flavor that is dominated by crystal malt flavor and residual sugars. Not impressive but palatable.

Lubiere (9747) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 11, 2006
Amber ale with a thick off white head. Light sweet malt aroma, without much character. Sweet malt taste, with light butterscotch, light floral hops and medium body. August 2005.
