UPDATED: AUG 21, 2007 Pours a copper amber color w/ minimal froth and residual lacing. Actually, it looks like aged Bourbon. Not very aromatic at all, just pungent malt. Medium nectar w/ ample residual effers. Texture is like cotton. I can taste the oak right upfront, then the malts and then the velvety hops. A mild hay flavor creeps into play. No off flavors to speak of. It is crisp and clean but you must like the oak to add refreshing. The finish is bittered nicely.

Hazey amber body with a tiny white head. The aroma is caramel, some dark fruits and light spicy, floral hops. The flavor is clean, some sweet caramel, but very light, and a touch of woody hops. Medium/light body with soft carbonation. Very refreshing and a very nice session.

Very good ale. Not to hoppy and not to malty...very good balance. Pours a nice copper color and has a hint of chocolate to it.

Nice Nor-cal microbrew. Aroma is very nice and hoppy. Appearance is clear and dark amber. But the best part of the beer is the flavor and the mouthfeel. It is very smooth and has a great intense flavor.

Bottle. Small white frothy head into amber colored body. Aroma was light: some roasted malts and also some light citric hops. Flavor was smooth: molasses at first taste with a hit of hops then subsided back into sweet molasses (in a good way). I am surprised and impressed with this EPA.
