Tap at Steam Haus Gastropub in Corona, CA. Good lacing on a clear, sort of ugly amber. Good fruity hop nose with honeydew. Taste is clean, moderate soapy bitterness, moving to sweeter fruit juice like Sunny Delight. Clean melon fruit tastes. Clean slightly soapy body. Quite enjoyable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at the Sorrento Valley location. This brew is a deep amber color with a medium thin light beige head that dissipates steadily. Stringy lacing. Citrus hops aroma with a touch of malt. Medium body with grapefruit and hops flavors, along with some sweet malt. The finish is dry and hoppy with a lingering bitterness left over. Not bad overall.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught Almost no head, cold-hazed pale amber beer. Nice inviting USA hops’ nose, fruity, citrussy, melon. Mandarine in the mouth, lightly spicy, some sweetish malts, ever so slighlty toasted. Slightly overcarbonated (or nitrogenated?) feel, too spritzy; light body, slick. Nice pale ale USA style.
