No a very good pale. Pours a nice cloudy orange color. No smell whatsoever. Taste is metallic, with a very weird hops. Leaves a gross aftertaste. Had on tap at the brewery.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ Santa Cruz Mountain Brewing. Clear golden pour with a white head. Aromas of orange peel, some grass, and bready malt. Kind of lemony, too. Flavor is lightly bitter. A fair amount of grass, orange peel, and a bit of lemons. Maybe some white grape and a light bread note.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
From bottle to pint glass. Weird metallic and cardboard aroma with some earth. Nice looking enough hazy deep orange with white head that leaves a collar. Cardboard and malt with a dank-like grassy hop background. Lots of oxidation and phenols here. Watery mouthfeel with a dry finish.

Draft. A light golden beer with a thin off-white head. The aroma has notes of malt as well as lighter notes of hops and onions. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, phenol, and plastic - Iím wondering what went wrong here.

Santa Cruz, the first place I ever bought the silly shrooms, nice little place in my heart but why did all those mountains keep rolling. But about the beer. Pours a light amber, little head. Smell, not much, but where this beer shines is the mouthfeel, big bready yeasty mouthfeel, actually compared to there other beers, very good. Mouthfeel for a light pale lager is big and welcoming. This is a very drinkable beer and highly recommended.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
Getting a big buttery flavor. Very unlike any pale I have had and really donít know what to think of this. It is not terrible but so off style I am flumoxed. Maybe it is the organic nature of this beer I donít know. Weird off aroma as well. Flavor has some fruitiness and there is a decent body to this thing but I donít think I would grab this one again.

This is a terrific ale. I hope that they make it a permanent addition. Dry hopped to perfection. Refreshing ale.

Thick head, nice lacing, but way too hoppy. Nice malt taste. One of the best organic beers in the area. Definitely worth a try, but it leans to a home-brew like quality.
