[2/20/15] Draught at Gordon Biersch Mission Valley in San Diego. Nice cloudy reddish amber with a beige head. Nice aroma of caramel, banana and a bubblegum note. Sweet flavor with malt, caramel, fruity esters and a light clove note. Medium-bodied. Decent and true to style.

"kind of an odd mix of flavors that ends up working fairly well. like the spicyness and fruit in the aroma and flavor...a little on the thin and overcarbonated side which takes away from the whole just a little."

On tap at RDU. Don’t know if I’ve had this style before. Strong sweet taste. Some banana taste. Body is a beautiful cloudy amber. Love the look.

Hazy brown color, nice head with great lacing. Flavor is all about banana and sweetness. Would have liked more dark malt flavor.

Pint between flights@Dulles airport, 01/09/12. Muddy copper glinting with bronze, slim beige top. Good clove and banana aroma. Chocolate-coated digestives, blueberries, stir of cherry, banana and spice. Nowt special but well-executed and the best beer I’ve had in an airport outside of Munich.
