BrotherGrendel (787) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 3, 2009
Draft at Bull McCabes. Cloudy amber ruby with thin offwhite head. Straight forward pale malt with chalky bitter hop presence in the background. Crisp and easy drinking but unremarkable in most senses. Good for fans of the bitter session beers.

Draft at the brewery. Clear gold-copper with a small lasting ring of cream above. Faint aroma of sweetish resin and citrus. Earthy resin and toasted nut flavors are well-balanced against some light malt. Light-medium body is slightly watery, creamy and dry-tingly. Very drinkable.

On tap at the brewery 2/2/08: Pours a transparent bright copper bronze with a thin, wispy-lacing white head. Aroma of lightly sweet toasty pale malts and a touch of citrusy hops. Body starts effervescent and semi-sweet with some toasty malts and earthy bittering hops toward a bittersweet slightly drier finish. An ok APA.
