Tap at Lucky Baldwins. Darker chill hazed orange. Good webby lace. Nose is sugar, sweet orange, sweetened maraschino cherry, pineapple candies, white gummy bear, raw malt grist. Taste is refreshing, higher carbonation, some pine, decent citrus hop bitterness, grist oatmeal. Pretty decent for a style unloved. Finish is a tad like diet orange soda.

Draft. Cloudy dull amber. Earthy aroma of English hops at American levels. Soft fruity character with mellow earthy hops. Well made, but not my preferred hop character.

Pint draught at Congreation. Persistent head with lots of lacing over a hazy, pale body. Couldn’t catch much aroma or taste except like a good Hefeweizen. Palate is a good, lively one. OK everyday beer describes it.

Pours a clear copper color with aroma of clean water and hops. A light tasting beer with mild complex taste. This beer leaves the palate with light bubbles, making this beer airy and very drinkable. A good everyday beer.

I expected a larger hop presence - it may have been because I sampled this one after some pretty big palate-shattering beers, but I detected little aroma beyond some faint sweet citrusy notes. Appearance was like a golden lager with a thick frothy white head. Flavor profile is smooth sweet up front, some subtle peppery spice, and a faint bitter finish. Very drinkable, but not a "wow" beer.

Sampled at the brewery...thanks again Patrick and Mark for making this happen! Beautiful ivory-capped golden tangerine pour that left an intricate web of lacing. Aroma of fruit, bready malt, and bright floral hops. This one starts with some citrus but finishes with roasted malt, raisin, and toasted nuts. Definitely get the English influence here. Very sessionable. Not typically a fan of the style but this really was delicious!

On tap at Mike & Anne’s in Pasedena as Craftsman Pale Ale (I am assuming that it is this). Pours with a hazy golden body and an off-white head. Aroma is fruity, british malts (marris), lightly floral. Taste is floral, but subdued hops and relatively sweet. Lively, dry, grainy and bitter.
