A: The beer pours an amber color with a small off-white head. S: Oh boy, this one smells buttery. Some sweet malt notes, but not a ton of substance. Lots of grass and straw with a weird grain husk aroma. Pretty damn watery, too. T: Watery is the best way to describe the flavor. Still a fairly noticeable amount of butter. There’s a moderate bitterness and some light malt notes, but almost no hop flavor. Just a bit of straw, grass, and grain husk. M: The body is light and watery with a medium to high carbonation. O: A very disappointing beer from a brewery I’ve grown to like a fair amount. Hopefully just an anomaly.

DRaft. Amber pour, super earthy characteristics here, but it just tastes like an amber ale.

Bottle thanks to Sarah! Pours a clear deep amber with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of earthy grains and bread with a bit of backing light pine. Flavor starts with a good amount grass and earthy grains with a bit of resin coming out in the finish.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - JUN 4, 2012
16oz can thanks to dvelcich on BA. Failed Beer Buddy upload. Pours a low haze amber orange with larger, yellow foam. Weak, soapy retention. Nos is sugar, malt, orange juice, juicy tropical hops. Taste is nutty, bitter, sharp/abrasive IBUs. Oily mouthfeel with spiced orange peel and perfume. Doesn’t come across as smoked if that was the point of this beer. Finish is metallic, soapy.
