Wet grass and hay in the aroma with a little citrus. Medium bodied with nice malt/hop balance and a long earthy finish.

Dont have good notes on this one. Just wrote that it is good balanced between the hops and malts and that my palate was tired. This was after going through the whole taplist at Russian River =).

On tap at Obriens. Pours an amber with white head. Caramel malt, citrus, grass, and hops. Pretty basic beer, still decent.

On tap at O’Brien’s when they had a ton of RR brews. Clear amber-orange. Light malty sweet with lots of hay. Clean finish and moderate citrus coming through. Hard to do this one justice after all the big Belgians and sour/wild ales. Nice brew.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - MAR 5, 2010
Draught at the brewpub. Amber, good clarity, lasting white head. Toasty bread maltiness is the main aromatic component, with a very light touch of english hops. The aroma is overall on the mellow side. Malt accented flavor with toffee and biscuit. Lightly fruity. LIght touch of hops but a tad spicy. Bitterness is mild. Nice malt flavors, but I wanted a little more hop balance out of this. A tough choice at a brewpub with so many amazing beers

JoeMcPhee (8216) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 28, 2010
Pale golden amber colour with a lot of fresh earthy hops on the nose. A little bit of spiciness and a solid balance of crackery malts and fresh hops. There is a nice dry-hopped resinousness on the back. It’s a simple but well made bitter… no real estery character at all.

Dogbrick (7253) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 8, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2011 Sample at the brewpub. Pours amber with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of bready malt and hops. Medium body with flavors of sweet malt and hops along with a touch of pine. The finish is toasted malt with a lingering sweetness left behind. Decent overall.

A - pours very filtered orange amber, almost bronze. Has very high stiff long lasting head that clings to the glass like nobodies business. S - citrus and soapy hops up front. Grass and musty alfalfa come into play, bready malts and hint of pine. M - medium bodied brew with lively carb. Bitter up front to a lingering sweet end. T - sweet tropical fruits, soap, citrus and grassy hops up front. Wet and fresh cut alfalfa, hint of pine, bready malts. Tropical fruit hints and caramel malts as well. O - very good English ale. Nice rounded mellowed hops and quiet malts. Very fresh and wet. Drinkable and subtle. 3.4 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

If I tried this beer in an EPA tasting rather than against RR’s big IPA’s, it would probably receive higher marks. I adjusted my score a few times, trying to figure out what exactly I was comparing it to. While I wait for my call to judge pale ale competitions, here are my thoughts on this beer. The beer pours a pleasant golden color with an okay head. The nose is malt and grain with some of RR’s usual hoppiness, floral and pine, in the background. There is some bitterness in the finish but the taste was sweet fruit, grain and malt. As the style seems to dictate, the hops are toned down, especially compared to RR’s big IPAs. The mouthfeel is a bit light, and the beer is easy to drink. While I didn’t give it a go, it’s probably an easier beer to drink for the evening than most at RR.
