Not much aroma; a bit of malt. This not what I like. It seems a bit soured or lactic. A small amount of hops in the finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brew outlet on Columbia St, San Diego on 18th March 2014. Copper bronze clear body with a full head on top. Caramel and other malt molasses fill the nose with a mild citrus note trying to squeeze through. The taste is semi-sweet with the caramel leading the way in flavour, what ever hops there are just hover below the surface and only come out at the finish. I’m no lager fan but this did OK.
