Good smooth taste, decent hop presence (Note: samlpled after Stone Ruination), great mouthfeel and fizziness, with a decent head and lace. Woell worth the hassle of obtaining more.

the aroma invited me in so much I almost inhaled this beer through my nose. very clean and refreshing. Malts and hops balance very well. Lacks a bit in flavor but still very good.

on tap at "Fly Bar" in San Francisco, CA. first thought was that it was just a hella weak beer. little aroma. light florals. tastes of caramel malts, grapefruit and nuts. bitter only at finish. kind of blah and watered down flavors. drinking this was " a STRUG."

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A- A nice golden brown hue which is crystal clear. Pours with a small 1 finger head that dissipates quickly and doesn’t leave much lacing.
S- The smell is sweet, roasted malts, raspberry, and various light and sweet fruits.
T- Very sweet with a slight hop bitterness. Roasted malts are prevalent, very characteristic of an english brown.
M- Crisp and highly carbonated in addition to being somewhat viscous.
D- This is a highly drinkable brew. I could drink pint after pint.

Golden Caramel in color. Faint hoppy aroma. Whispy white head. Subtle flavor with a strong tang of hops. It’s a little thin and watery for my tastes, though.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at City Beer Store in SF. Very nice orange-tinted hazy brown, no head was poured. Aroma is clean and crisp (not necessarily in a good way) with a little cucumber and nutty funk. Thin mouthfeel, fast-disappearing taste of bread, grass and malt. Good to try but wouldn’t get it again.
