caesar (6379) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - OCT 14, 2008
Tap @ RR. Clear yellow color, short head. English blonde ale, but with more hops. Also bit sharper in taste. Malty body.

f351c4v (411) - Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 11, 2008
On tap @ RR. Pours a clear, golden color with minimal head. Yeasty aroma with a hint of lemon. Light bodied, a bit fruity with a yeasty presence. Not very exciting.

AgentSteve (1647) - SF Bay Area, California, USA - OCT 9, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2008 Pours pale golden with a foamy off white head. The nose is a bit too subtle, but nice influences of herbs and honey. Same in the flavor with a delicate mouthfeel.

TheAlum (6825) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - OCT 8, 2008
Sampler at the RR Brewpub (Santa Rosa, CA). Light straw body with minimal head. This beer lacked a real aroma, subtle fruity pear sweetness pervades with bready notes underneath. Mellow, refreshing, subtle. Nice flow, smooth. Nice hoppy finishing bite. Sweetness of the malt is light, but doable.

tjthresh (1867) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - OCT 6, 2008
750 from Taverner. Pours golden with a nice amber-ish tint. Wonderful thick white head. Really nice woodsy herbal floral hop aroma with a bit of a sugary malt character. Pretty hoppy flavor as well. Kind of a muted mintiness. Pleasing malt character with a eye opening bitter finish. Medium, mouth filling body with lively carbonation. and a balanced finish. I could drink this beer everyday.

oreogobbler (228) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 4, 2008
Aroma: sweaty (gym) stink aroma, musk, spice, but still pleasant. (if that makes any sense) Like most russian river beers: pours completely transparent dark orange with a white soapy head. Flavor: Musky grass flavor, with some nut blend and acidic finish. Palate is a bit sharp but balanced and enjoyable.

Naven (1000) - Poway, California, USA - OCT 3, 2008
Bottle, from the brewpub that I picked up back in July. Batch 005. Super nice, clean, golden color. Nice fruity aroma. Flavor is light, refreshing and tasty. Kind of reminds me of a cross breed between a Belgian ale, a Hefe and a Pilsener. Good stuff.

iowaherkeye (2703) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - SEP 26, 2008
On tap at the brewpub, chalkboard states this is 5.48%Clear light golden with a one finger off-white head, down to a thick film and thicker ring. Aroma of bananas and spicy Belgian yeast, as well as some light herbal and peppery hops. Flavor adds a bit of earthy bitterness, finishing semi-dry with some cereal grain and bitterness peaking around a 3. Burps lightly herbal hops. Light body with some light carbonation. Only a few breaks of film in the glass to make it lacing, and not a sheet. Not ungodly complex, but not what this beer was going for. I?d gladly drink this with most meals.
