Caytinator (1005) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - SEP 1, 2012
Taste at the brewery. Black and clear, of course. Laces well, irregular head. Tastes "thin", slight aroma, not particularly impressive, although you can take a little hops. Doesn’t sit poorly on the tongue. I think it’s the best Diamond Bear has to offer.
