Deep amber pour with a good amount of off white head. The aroma is a nice hop/coriander scent. Much lighter on the hops than the aroma leads you to expect. The flavor is dominated by a please carmalized malt flavor. There is a definate oak barrel quality throughout the flavor. this is medium bodied, and very clean, with a very light aftertest. Good Beer.

Poured a very nice amber color and medium amount of bubble movement. A nice aroma of outdoorsy, spicy hops smell. Very smooth while drinking, leaves a nice carmel malt flavor in your mouth. No bitterness left after drinking either. Very nice beer and very good with fried foods!

1 pint .6 oz bottle. Poured an amber color with a very thin, white head. Aroma was very sweet of hops and a little cirtus background. Flavor again was sweet and not bitter at all, not what I expected but nonetheless it was good. Went great with fried chicken though! :D

UPDATED: MAY 8, 2007 22 ounce bomber shared with grant. Earthy, slight pine hop aroma that is definitely pleasant. Some sweet, toffee-like aromas are also detected. Transparent copper color with a creamy, off-whitish head. Long-lasting, with nice lacing. Attractive. Peppery, slightly spicy hops to start, turning malty and a bit caramelly. Some chewy nuttiness and graininess. Nice maltiness to this with a tasty sweetness. Nice. This is really drinkable stuff. Highly recommended. Great session beer.

Bottled. Very malty with slight roasted carmel or nuts type flavors. Not a huge tasting beer, but smooth and easy to drink. Low in alcohol so you could have a few of these and not be trashed.

Bought at Vons Supermarket!! Wow its cool to live in California. Aroma is malts and roasted nuts. Flavor is the same, loads of malts, oranges and a slight smokey hint. Lots of carbonation and refreshing.

12 oz bottle, via IrishBoy. Pours a clear copper colored body under a very small, very fizzy off-white head that disappeared quickly. Alot of visible carbonation. Aroma is of toasted and caramel malts with a light hoppy dryness. Flavor is fairly light with some fruitiness on the finish. Lighter notes of toffee, iced tea, a little malty sweetness. Mouthfeel is lighter bodied, and had a ton of fizzy carbonation. Overall, not the most exciting beer, but it was drinkable.
