On tap at Bailey’s Taproom while the ladies shopped across the street at Billygoat Vintage - pretty good deal as far as I was concerned. Light copper with a frothy white head. Mint and ceder were the first two things that rose out of the sampler - then you got more pine and resin hop goodness with a nice moderate carbonation and body, a smooth bitterness and an out of place light/thin finish.

On tap at Burnhearts, pretty sure it’s a Cigar City collaboration. Clear amber with a creamy slowly fading tan crown and some lacing. Aroma is flora with caramel, cedar, vanilla and some grassiness. Taste of semi-sweet malt, cedar, vanilla, citrus, grassy hops and light spices. Moderate bitterness with some citrus on the finish.

kidmartinek (3654) - austin, Texas, USA - OCT 26, 2013
Very hazy golden yellow. Weak white head. Mechanized cedar aroma. Lots of hoppy citrus aromas as well. Straight apricot flavor. Blander on the palate to go with the apricot. Hoppy, citrusy, flatter fruit peel-like pale ale.

brokensail (10917) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 25, 2013
On tap @ Haven Gastropub. Golden colored pour with a white head. Smells like cedar. Shocker. Woody and spicy, a touch of vanilla, decent citrus, and a lot of grass. A bit of malt. Tastes like cedar, too. Light malt sweetness along with bitter, spicy, wood. A hint of vanilla, pepper, and citrus peel.

Tap at Local Option, Chicago. Poured a clear medium amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is grassy hop pine needle leading to a medium bitter flavour with a crisp sharp grass nettle hop yeast palate with hints of toothpaste mint on the back of the throat.

Interesting for sure, on tap at the brewery, tasted like drinking a cedar tree verbatim, no exaggeration.
