944play (358) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - NOV 30, 2010
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2012 Cask at Toad in the Hole. Foggy red-amber with wispy sparkler head and denotative (of Moonlight) fine lace. Subtle reddish tealike aroma, plus some prescient green sharpnesses. Taste mostly reflects aromas, but expected Moonlight bitterness allays itself until the end. Pleasant Englishness is admirable but a little caricaturish. Re-rate, 1-17-12: Draft at Toad in the Hole. Foggy deep gold with small fine head. Strongly herbal, grassy, perfumey nose. Flavor is superlatively hoppy, like noshing on stupidly fresh Sterlings. This is where Pale 31 and 1500 wish they were.

God, I love Moonlight Brewing Co! This pours golden with an amazing white head. The aroma is very hoppy with some sweet notes of tropical fruit, and a bit of crackery malt. The flavor is outstanding with a perfect dry, hoppy palate and crackery malt followed by some earthy eucalyptus and tropical fruit. Finish is complex and full of spicy hops. Loved it.

joet (2208) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - MAR 7, 2010
Light aromatics but served very cold. Citrus floral notes to start love that Brian letís the hops speak. Very solid crisp light bodied refreshing beer with herbal fruity Ho character

marcus (6700) - Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 4, 2010
On tap at Monks Kettle. Pours amber with a nice beige head and a citrus aroma. There is a hearty caramel malt flavor with just the right amount of hop bitterness. Very balanced.

kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - JAN 17, 2010
Cask @ Toad in the Hole. Pours a slightly hazy orange-golden color; huge, textured off-white head with great retention and mixed-bubbled lacing; great pour. Very light aroma on this: biscuity notes and some very soft English hop bitterness; some light fruitiness and orange peel; cask isnít helping the nose on this. Medium mouthfeel: relaxed carbonation of course (despite the impressive head formation); plenty of biscuity malts, some light citrus acidity, and a pleasant English hop character; earthiness and floral character; minimal astringency; a solid English-influenced cask pale. Lasting finish: lots of toastiness, biscuity notes, and lingering soft earthy bitterness.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - MAR 5, 2010
Draught at Flavor in Santa Rosa. Gold-orange with a lacey white head. Spicy and citrus-laden hops in the aroma, along with a fresh biscuit and bready malt character. The flavor has plenty of the same biscuit and bready malt touches, but stays away from being sweet or caramel in character. Hops are generous with pungent citrus, though with a spicy side. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Pretty solid, with a nice malty touch to balance the generous hops.
