Bottle. Golden to copper in color, clear look, and has a beige colored head. The smell is weak, watery, fruits, hops, and candy. The taste is hops, floral, but overall sort of weak. Ok but needs more umph.

Dark amber. Restrained honeyed malt nose. Some good bitterness in the mouth. Well balanced. Light fruitiness in an orangey way. Pretty simple but pleasantly drinkable.

Bomber poured into a tulip glass. Pours a deep ruby-copper, hazy enough to be opaque, with a small off-white collar of head. Aroma is crystal malty with a slight toasted note and some resiny citrus hops. Flavor is much the same with a classic iced tea crystal malt base and a rather subdued herbal hop profile. Pretty typical amber but too light on the hop flavor.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Ken’s bottle. I liked this one, think its over 60 IBU which went with a strong malting tomake a most drinkable beer. Average mouthfeel. Cloudy reddish tinged body, three-eighth inch head, and lacey with lace rings. Decent hoppy flavour, a little complex, and a dry aftertaste.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
07-Mar-10 (22-oz bottle: Purchased 09-Feb-10 for $3.99 at Ledger’s Liquor in Berkeley, CA) This odd-colored, pinkish-red beer is hazy in appearance and pours an inch-tall, off-white head that settles to a wafer-thin layer. A significant number of carbonation streams rise quickly through the beer, supporting the head retention. The nose is mildly caramely and vaguely hoppy, but there is a bit of mustiness and a moderate sourness like vinegar and unripe peach that is unlikely to be intended, so this bottle seems to be showing signs of infection. On the palate, the dusty hops are bright citrus and pine with a moderate bitterness, but a prominent apple skin flavor and mild sourness all but buries the caramely malts. Carbonation is medium-high and the mouthfeel is very dusty and chalky, with a very dry and somewhat astringent finish. Not a good beer due to the infection, but infected bottles are the brewery’s fault, so this is what it is. A new sample is in order though.

Rating from my backlog. On tap at Anchor & Hope in SF. Amber pour with beige lacing. Smells and tastes of hops and daffodils. Odd, but not bad.
