DTM (798) - Winters, California, USA - AUG 14, 2013
On tap at Vito's in Davis CA. Pours a dark yellow color and it left a ton of lacing on the glass. Not much flavor to it. Just some mild sweetness with maybe a hint of hop. Not bad, just not very outstanding. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A little fruity, a little bitter. All in all its a pretty standard ale with a lower abv that should allow this to be an all night drinker, but the aftertaste is very heavy and justs sits on your tongue which changes the flavor of subsequent sips. Nice beer to visit, but I wouldnt want to live there.

No retention and no lacing. Smells of malt, sweet bread and grapefruit. Tastes of pine and sweet malt. No aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

solid brewery, but this one’s pretty weak. it always makes me wonder when the brewer is calling it a session beer. no creativity on this one. nothing offensive, but quite boring, subdued flavor, aroma, body...a lingering dry bitter finish it’s only saving grace."

Blairgus (2731) - California, USA - AUG 27, 2014
27 aug 2014, bottle. Orange, a tad hazy, really foamy. Med body and mildly fizzy. Kind of sweet cereal malt, light lemon, slightly bitter finish. Okay.

troyc (2473) - Illinois, USA - AUG 5, 2014
[Tap] Amber colored pour with some lacing on the glass. Not much head to it though. Floral hops, mild citrus, grainy notes and pine in the nose. Tasting notes of pine needles, grapefruit, cracker, grain husks and lemon cleaner. Not as clean as I was hoping for. Medium body. Lingering dry and moderately hoppy finish.

This pale is just okay. Has the hops of a light IPA but it just doesn’t really have a refreshing flavor to it. Something is just a little off.

Draft. Pour is reddish amber. Off white head. Aroma is grassy and light citrus with some soft bread and caramel. Taste is bitter initially with some sweet malt character. More in line with an amber ale but still pretty good. A bit of slickness, almost butter, as it warms.

GenDV138 (1834) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - JUL 5, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 24, 2014 8 oz pour at Rubicon. Clear golden yellow with off-white head. Aromas of light citrus, light floral notes. Weak aroma. Tastes of citrus, bitter hops, pine, light soapy notes. Medium body with a dry finish. Friend gushed over this beer on the way to the brewpub but I thought it was just average.
