tap at Solona - This beer has a light, sweet aroma. The flavor is moderately sweet with some interesting fruity notes. The creamy body is great, but the finish had a somewhat off bitterness to me for some reason. Nevertheless, it’s a refreshing beer that’s worth trying.

Aroma is suprising, with some raspberry. Appears a medium copper color, with no effervescence, and with a small head that dissipates. Flavor is big raspberry, with excellent balance. Palate is light, refreshing, and suprisingly effervescent on the tongue. Overall, this beer is greater than the sum of its parts.

On tap during my 6/7 visit to Solana Beach: Pours a golden color with a medium size white head. Aroma is sweet with hints of caramel and spices. Flavor is sweet in a tangy way with a creamy texture that is bitter and syrupy in the finish. Enjoyable!

Gold colour with a firm head. Aroma is fruits with some caramel malt. Nice fruits and sweetness throughout with a creamy texture and nice carbonation. Clean finish and enjoyable.

UPDATED: JUN 26, 2006 On tap in Solana Beach. This rating is a combination of tastes on tap at the brew pub and at home from a growler poured into a snifter glass. Pours the color of transparent hazelnut shell. Aromas of english toffee are blended with malt powder and served on a thin square of light german chocolate. A touch of wafer cookie in the aroma as well, along with an herbal spiciness that reminds me of bay leaves. Mouthfeel is light and creamy with plenty of froth excited upon contact to the tongue. Light, but pleasant flavors of almond mixed with honey and more toffee from the bouquet. The finish is slightly bitter, but leaves a sweeter final smack of chocolate chip cookie dough and maple syrup. Quite enjoyable overall - I really dig this style and wish I had a bit more experience with it from which to draw comparison. Reading the ratebeer description of the sytle for the first time reinforces my opinion of the brew. Other than the "best when aged" line, which I’d be happy to comment on if there was a bottling run I could experiment with, this beer seems to fit the style description to a "T".

On tap in Solana Beach. Pale gold color. Large sized white foamy head. Aroma is fruity, sweet, brown sugar and some spices. A medium bodied Biere da Garde. Malts are fruity and sweet. Touch of spice and barnyard. Lively carbonation. Clean finish. Creamy mouthfeel. Light and refreshing. Nice beer. Would probably have been much better if it wasn’t served at a near freezing temperature. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter and a touch spicy.

Candy beer. Interesting stuff. I’m sorry but I know only a little about the style, and this is the first example I have ever had. I liked it. It was very sweet, with a little character from yeast and vienna malts? Would definitely get another growler.

Poured an amber color with a small, white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma was sweet, with honey, some lemon, brown sugar, citrus and spices. Taste was earthy, caramel malt, some more honey, light citrus hops, vanilla, and some alcohol as well.

UPDATED: DEC 11, 2007 On tap@Port Solana: Dark amber color with a small (bar pour) off white head. Aroma is sweet and fruity with maybe a wiff of banana. Flavor starts caramel sweet with some fruit (cherry) turning lightly tart and tangy finishing lightly sweet. Medium bodied and creamy with moderate carbonation. I think it would show more complexity if served not so cold.
