Pours dark amber with biscuit notes and a light toast Malt dominates with the grains really shining and going long, you do get a light hop hit but this one is all about the malts.

Had this in bottle last week in San Diego...forgot to review. It’s sort of forgettable. It’s sweet and biscuity and lagerlike. Pretty forgettable.

Just a notch below the red trolley ale this beer was a little lighter and just had a little less taste. Still a nice beer.

Had in San Diego. Pour was a nice clear amber cherry. Aroma is deep malts and caramel which both carry into the flavor. Minor hints of something leafy. Nice brew.

Tap at a random bar in SD. Presented as nearly flat, clear amber with no head. Aroma of biscuity malt, grain, butter. Taste is a massive diacetyl mess. Wow.
