3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap @ Pizza Port, Carlsbad. Pours a clear gold with a small white head. Aroma is caramel cream with slight grain and wheat notes thrown in. Taste is roughly the same - tasted much more like cream soda than a beer. Smooth, drinkable, but not their best offering, not by a long shot.

Draft at Pizza Port Carlsbad; nose with only a light caramel note; gold with a small white head; flavor is weak graininess, a little pepperiness, and a very weak hop bitterness; not my favorite Pizza Port beer.

Draught Creamy-golden, no head left. Sulphur, grassy, weak nose. Weak, oxydized pale malts, watery finish. Weak and watery MF. Oops. I blame the "style".

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On-tap at PP C’Bad. Pours a clear, light yellow color with a thin, crisp white head, some spider web lace. Smells crisp and malty. Tastes sweet, crisp, and malty. There is a general sweetness as well, cream? I don’t know. Thin body, coats the mouth, crisp carbonation.

A little unambitious, but I guess even micros have to woo the swillers. This was a bit too much like a lager for me, not enough of that English body that keeps people coming back to Boddington’s.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at PPCB. A clean yellow pour. Almost no nose but clean as a whistle. While it has a bit of maltiness it doesn’t have the adjunct taste. It has the lightest of bitters as well. Solid palate and carbonation. As clean as pin and very refreshing excellent drinker.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Pizza Port. Clear golden yellow with a fizzy white head. Sweet honey like aroma. Malty honey bread taste with a crisp toasty finish. Certainly a better than average beer.
