12HundredBaud (262) - Sausalito, California, USA - AUG 17, 2011
50cl. bottle from a local beer retailer. It pours a not entirely clear pale golden liquid with a small-medium white head that lasts somehow throughout the beer but leaves no lacing. The aroma is fresh, with notes both of malts and hops: straw, hay, a little corn, grass, grains. A little light, but well-balanced. It tastes likewise, but intenser, with some citrusy hints and a nice malty sweet touch. It is low-medium in sweetness and bitterness. In the mouth it feels pleasant, smooth and quite oily, mildly carbonated, with a medium body and a long dry bitter finish, with an aftertaste of straw, grains and grass. Presentation is quite nice for a simple but nice, refreshing and easy-to-drink lager.

brokensail (10808) - Orange County, California, USA - MAY 11, 2010
A: The pour is a crystal clear golden color with a fluffy white head on top. S: A crisp lager nose with notes of sweet malt and spicy and earthy hops. Not terribly complex, but nice. T: A really nice clean lager with some pleasant sweetness with perhaps a touch of fruity tartness (apples and lemons?). The hops are floral with just a mild bitterness. M: Fairly light on the tongue as you might expect from a lager, but not watery at all. D: Not usually my favorite style, but this one is really nicely done. Good clean flavors and a really refreshing beer.
