3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
(06.21.07) On tap at Magnolia Pub and Brewery. 5.1% ABV. Hazy amber ale with small white head. Light citrus aroma. Small carbonation. Starts dry with citrus grapefruit hop flavors. Medium finish with light lingering hop bitterness. Slightly thin and watery side otherwise, a nice hoppy beer without aggressive bitterness. Goes well with a Cuban sandwich. One of the better offerings at Magnolia.

On tap at the brewpub. Pour is clear orange with a huge cream colored head and great lacing. Bready, husky, light grapefruit, citrus, and grassy aroma. Taste is pretty bland - slightly floral, grainy, biscuity, grassy, and herbal with a medium bitter finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Not bad for less than 5%.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught @ Magnolia Pub & Brewery, San Francisco. Rated on 15.10.2012.
Pours a hazy golden copper colour with a white head. Aroma of toasted malts, floral hops and bread. Flavour of mild toasted malts, really strong and pungent hops, raisins and hay. Medium bodied, slick and a bit thin mouthfeel and a dry bitter finish. Nicely hopped, but lacks maltiness.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
A decent aroma is the only highlight of this otherwise lackluster beer. A neat trip into the past, but still pretty mediocre.

Draft... Super dark but xlear gold, copper in the middle, nice light tan head... Caramelly grass body, a bit off, too sweet... Taste is blah, boring, nothing new, sweet pale

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at the brew pub, SF.Amber looks with a small white head. Sweet malt, citrus, and restrained piney hop in the nose and flavour. Gently bitter finish. Crisp and drinkable enough but more interesting pickings to be found at the other end of Haight methinks.
