bhensonb (10950) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 20, 2007
Aroma of amber malts supported by hop which seems neither citrus nor pine. Copper color with traces of a white head. Starts with what seems to be medium malt (not sweet, but the flavor seems there). Hop is difficult to pin down as to "flavor", but it’s strongly there.* This is what one might imagine a strongly hopped dry medium brown ale to be, if such can be imagined. Hops are strongly present in the finish, but this is no NW double IPA. *Bar staff indicated hops are Mount Hood, strong version of a German hop.

brokensail (10795) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 20, 2012
The beer is almost amber in color with a white head. Mild grass aroma followed by citrus peel and floral hops. A strong toffee and toasted bread smell to it as well. Just decent on the nose, sort of bland. The flavor is somewhat sweet, but still a bit bland. Light hop flavors of citrus peel, grass and pine. A light bitterness on the finish.

Dogbrick (7973) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 31, 2012
Sample at the brewpub. This beer pours a pale amber color with a medium off-white head that diminishes steadily. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus and hops. Light-bodied and crisp with a mildly bitter hops character with citrus and malt notes. The finish is short with a lightly bitter fruity hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

On tap at the brewery. This blonde ale poured with a thin off-white head and a fruity aroma. There is a very carbonated caramel malt flavor with a rather harsh hop finish.
