2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught at the brewpub. Clear red-amber with a beige head. Light dishwater yeast and light toasted malt aroma. The flavor has a definite dirty wet rag quality with indistinct hops and light malt. Prickly and light body. A definite let down, as all their other beers that I have tried have been solid. None of the flavors step out and make themselves known, except the undesirable ones. Sounds like it can be better, and I have to stop back in and try a future batch.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled at the brewpub. Pours a deep, dark copper color with a creamy white head that recedes with decent lacing. Aroma includes a sweet maltiness and a tangy spicy note. The flavor reflects this, with grainy and sweet malt balanced out by a spicy floral hop zest. Light body, crisp finish, pretty easy to drink.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled @ the brewpub 10.01. Nicely balanced Amber with adequate hops. Seabright had a few hoppy beers on draft so I thought best to start my session there with an Amber.

A decent amber. Pours a beautiful red color with a white head. Slight vanilla smell. Taste is decent. Buttery, slightly fruity start. There is a hoppy aftertaste. Had on tap at the brewery.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Sampler at the brewpub) This is a deep amber ale with a thin white head. The aroma is of sweet malt. The body is medium-light and soft. The flavor is well-balanced and has a delicate spicy bitterness. Nice!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Had this on tap at the Saturn while visiting Santa Cruz last Sunday. Try the Lentl soup. This brew pours a sparkling orang amber. The creamy white dense head is mostly lasting with fair lacing. The floral nose is cereal, with a hint of nectar, and coffee. The flavor is balanced with average depth. Primarily floral with a long semi-bitter finish. The body is medium dry and lively. The finish feels astringent. Note to the guy tending bar at the Riva (on the Wharf) by the boardwalk in Santa Cruz who told me "no good beer is brewed here" - Get your head out of your ass. Check out Seabright, the've got their shit together.

Draught at the brewpub. Not a lot to say about this; it’s a respectable amber, but doesn’t really stand out.

I like this beer a lot, a full-bodied taste, nice copper color, good hops and carbonation. And the brewery-eatery is a favorite anytime.
