On cask @ Tornado poured a hazy copper brown with a creamy lasting amber head. Aromas of carmel, toffee, earthiness and a hint of citrus. Palate was light bodied and smooth. Flavors of toffee, carmel, and earthiness with a dry bitter finish.

On tap at the Toronado. This was the cask-conditioned version when I was there. An amber beer with a big off-white head. I get flavors of oranges and tea. Palate is mild and smooth for easy drinking of mass quantities. A satisfying bitter finish awaits you. A pretty awesome beer, but then again, it might be the locale.

Brian knows his beers and as it appears his brain is one that may work like mine, I wonder if he intentionally handed me beers in the order he did, with lager later and bitter after IPA. That this holds up after all else with exceptional hop quality AND balance makes me wish upon a moon that I could have this as my own session bitter. De-moonlight-ful

A great session beer on tap often at the Toronado. Good hop bouquet very full and lastin bitterness with good resins. Fruit and nuts malt with a toffee leaning somewhat English in Nature. Full round mouthfeel and finishing bitterness with a touch of malt sweetness. First class session bitter.

Tap. This is yet another rating that I found written on a piece of paper in luggage. I think I had this with Grant when I met up with him last September. Dark-amber, transluscent. Crisp-hoppy IPA type of aroma. A little bit bready in the flavor, very strong hops. Lots of rye in the flavor as well.

This beer is always on tap at Cato's. Tons of malt in the nose and flavor. Nicely hopped with mild carbonation.

Tap. Deep copper color with a nice head. Loaded with malt and hops. Not much of a bitter taste, more like a strong ale to me. But not bad!

joet (2434) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - NOV 5, 2001
An amazing nose packed with malt and hops. Great full hop flavor with good mouth feel and relatively clean finish for a hophead beer. I could see this as a session beer. Very nice.
