Simple sweet fruits but the mild spice and cinamon is quite thick through the palate making for an easy to like drink.

Drank this at the brewery. It was refreshing but had little to offer other than that. Nothing offensive but nothing memorable. Light in color, flavor and body.

Light, clear yellow gold pour. Light crisp and refreshing, but not much flavor. Perhaps a a little lemony citrus and light hops. Decent.

I had this on tap at Hollister Brewing. This was their beer which provides an upgrade for the BMC crowd. It’s slightly sweet, golden in color and easily drinkable.

brokensail (10606) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 3, 2012
Fairly typical pour: pale straw color with a white head that doesn’t last all that long. Strong fruit ester and corn aromas to this beer. There is a light floral and grassy hop note to it, maybe a touch of straw. Not much actual malt aroma. Mild to moderate sweetness, mostly in the form of adjunct with a bit of malt. The hops are minimal, but there. Fairly bland.

(thanks bu11zeye) smells like wheat, skunky, lemon zest, grass, cardboard. too clear and plain. no head.

(Growler thanks to BMan1113VR via bu11zeye) pale yellow, very light bubbles. Nose of muted fruity pebbles, peach, and grain. Taste is buttery, apple, alcohol. Not horrible but not great.
