COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our customers can’t get enough of this amber ale that was orginally brewed with hemp seeds, but tastes just as good without them.

Tap @ Carlsbad from Dec 05. Coppery pour with some orange hints. Sweet malty flavors with a moderate body. A bit too sweet for a session beer for me.

Tap at San Clemente (I’m guessing the rating belongs here, since it’s not listed under san clemente and the brewers are the same): Light copper color with tiny white head. Aroma has peach, apples, honey, malt. Flavor is fruity, crisp; dry finish with a touch of bitterness.

Malty sweetness w/ slight dark fruit and vinious notes on the nose... the same w/ a hint of pine / citrus on the mouth. This beer poured a rich reddish brown w/ gold highlights, slight head and good lacing. The mouthfeel was creamy and light.

Draught at Pizza Port (Carlsbad), California.
Light amber/orange beer with a white head. Sweet malty aroma with grassy tones. Flavor of pilsner malt with grassy tones and hops in the finish. Bland but drinkable.

(Draft: Pizza Port in Carlsbad, CA) A decent amber ale, but nothing I’m too excited by; From start to finish, the flavor is quite malty, moreso than your typical amber ale, with a moderate sweetness and a light honey flavor; Light hoppiness adds some balance, but this remains a sweet, malt dominated beer; Although this medium bodied beer is a little heavy from the sweet maltiness, a slightly sour flavor in the finish helps to clear the palate somewhat; The nose is sweet honey, lightly malty, and not much in the way of hops; This has your basic amber color; Off-white head slowly fades to a thin layer; A dense lacing droops down the sides of the glass like, well, 50-year old DD breasts; Where’s my mind today?

Pours a gold/copper color with a small white head. Aroma is malty and grain in with a small hop profile. Flavor is malt and hops in good balance but the beer falls short in a way. It lacks the spicy complexity of other PP beers. Body is medium all around. Decent but nothing to write home about.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUN 14, 2004
Draught @ Pizza Port Carlsbad

The beer pours clear amber with a portly off white head that is portly in size and frothy in texture, the resultant lace a fine coating upon the glass. Nose is sweet malt, crisp and clean, start is sweet and has a nice grain profile with the top middling in it feel. Finish has a pleasant acidic bite, the hops delectable in their spiciness, dry aftertaste a nice change of pace from those monster IPA’s I have been drinking.
