Tap at Russian River. Pours a chill hazed orange with a small, white head. No lace. Starfruit, watermelon candies, strawberry candies, something else sweet medicinal in the nose. Taste is neutral, a bit suddy, mildly bitter. Clean and very neutral to near bland. In a way it tastes like flavored tangerine seltzer water. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap @ RR. Hazy, honey pour with a short white head with good retention and heavy lace. Nose is light malt. Light body and moderate carbonation. Light toast, biscuit, citrus hops and almonds. Finish is short, dry and leaves you wanting another sip. A bit drier than many English bitters, but very good. Iíd have no problem drinking this the whole evening.

On tap at the brewery. Aroma of malts and some hops...not really much though. Appearance is a light tan with off white head. Taste is very understated and fairly bland. Not much going on with this, although it is still a decent beer, it is my least favorite from RR.

On tap at RR. Hey, itís true to the style. British malt and bread flavors arenít really my thing. Hard to get excited about this after drinking so many great RR sours.....
