2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught @ Pacific Coast Brewing Company, Oakland. Rated on 19.10.2012.
Pours a copper colour with a firm creamy white head. Aroma of toasted malts, grass and some metallic notes. Flavour of toasted malts, strong grassy hops, herbs and metals. Light bodied, slick mouthfeel and a grassy toasted finish. Easy going pale ale with disturbing metallic notes.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
4 ounce sample on tap at the brewpub. Lightly sweet, caramelly faint maltiness present. Pretty husky with a bit of a metallic character. Very faint aroma, which seems more like an amber ale. Transparent copper-amber body with a small, quickly dissipating off-white head. Chewy caramelly start before this becomes a little toasted. Finishes with some mild herbal hop bitterness. Light astringency. More of a hoppy amber than an American Pale Ale.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap and cask at the brewpub. Dramatically different experiences (mediocrity and a heinous infection).
Pours with a lightly hazed golden body with a thin white head. Aromas are faintly estery, light fruit, bready, grainy and a hint of citrus. Flavors are bready, lightly grainy, caramel, not bitterness and no hop flavor (APA?!). Some esters. Lively bubbles, dry, short duration.
Pours with a slightly dark amber body with a thicker bone hued off-white head with good lace. Aromas are INFECTED, lactic, acetic, vinous, floral. Flavors are acetic, orange, vinegar, cotton candy, undrinkable. Cask would be rated a 1.2. SHOULD NOT BE SERVED in this condition!

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
A: The pour is a shade of amber with a mild off-white head.
S: Plenty of butter is apparent right away. There’s some bread and toffee malt character. A very, very light hop aroma to this one. On the whole, the nose is pretty light.
T: Still plenty of butter notes on the palate with a bit of chlorine/pool water flavor. A bit of a grassy hop flavor that provides just a touch of bitterness.
M: The body is medium with a moderate level of carbonation.
D: Good and buttery, just like most of the beers at this brewpub. No thanks.
