ngeunit1 (1555) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 24, 2012
A - Served a clear amber color with a bit of orange mixed in with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades at a normal pace leaving behind some good lace. S - Aroma is a mix of rich sweet caramel malts with a bit of toasted malt and citrus hop. T - Starts off with some sweet rich toasted caramel and bready malt with a bit of citrus hop and a hint of chocolate. Though the middle some more toasted flavors come through with some light bitterness, some more hop flavor, and a touch of lager yeast esters. The finish is a mix of citrus hops, lightly caramelized malts, and a touch of bread. M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with lightly syrupy feeling and a dry toasted finish. D - Very drinkable. Nice amber lager with good balance.

On tap at Alembic. Pours dark brown with white head. Aromas of dark bready malts with some caramel and spices. Flavors of toasted and bready malts, chocolate and some spices. I want to say this is my first malt liquor and this was probably the surprise of the SF trip.

Aquilo (616) - Berkeley, California, USA - JAN 11, 2012
Red-brown color with a small head. Aroma is caramel malt with a hint of tropical fruit. Flavor is mild at first, but then it hits you with a blast of bitterness on the way down. Astringent finish. It’s a decent if a bit unusual beer.
