Pale golden in color with soft white head. Light bready-malt aroma. Very mild, a signature light bready sweetness but not much to it at all.

Draft at the Firestone Walker Taproom in Marina del Rey, CA. Pours mostly clear gold with a foamy, white head. Nice bready character, lightly bitter with some leaves, toasted grains and caramel.

Tap: This is an improved version of the beer. Aromatics are great. Lots of malt, barrel ferment and mocha. Again the palate is simple short and sweet.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the brewery in Paso Robles. Not as hazy as I had expected for an unfiltered beer but I guess I’m used to other styles. Not too bad. Better than i remember DBA being. Kinda wish now that I had done a side by side.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Grunt fill from Alberstons. Pours out a hazy amber with small fluffy head. Malt dominates the aroma, and kicks it up a notch in taste. Toffee, caramel, very mild bitterness. Unfiltered characteristics a nice addition.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample at GABF 09/26/2015, thanks to my sis for assistance with note-taking. Hazy brownish-amber color with a medium off-white head that diminishes gradually. Partial sheets of lacing. Aroma of herbal hops, wood and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of floral hops, earthy malt, fruit and oak. The finish is malty up front with a mildly hoppy aftertaste. Above average overall.
