A "special" drinkable bitter. Tasty malt sweetness balanced by a crisp unique combination of Pacific NW Centennial hops and English Kent Golding. Complex and subtle.

Sampled from the tap at the Railyard location. Pours a clear amber with a white head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma has notes of sweet grains with a bit of grass and biscuit underlying. Flavor has a grass and bread combination with a touch of sweetness.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - OCT 4, 2011
Draft @ brewpub. Warm amber color. Aroma of biscuity, healthy, toasted malts. Balanced. Fresh, bright, and nutty malts. Well-balanced dose of light but cheerful hops add herbal brightening to the finish. This would make a great cask offering.

Oakes (12514) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 21, 2011
Golden-amber with no head. Earthy, mushroomy aroma. The taste is the same, with light caramel nuances. Good body. Mellow character - might translate well to cask on account of the EKG juiciness in the finish.

On tap at the brewpub in August 2009. Pours a copper color with a decent white head. The smell isnít terribly hoppy, nor is the taste. Also, there is a fairly strong diacetyl presence, and with very few hops there to mask it, it overpowers the rest of the beer. This affects the beerís drinkability quite a bit.

BeerandBlues2 (9681) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - OCT 24, 2005
Draught. Pours amber with an edgy white head. Floral hop caramel malt (meal) aroma with peach, pear notes. Bitter hop floral flavor with a malt body and grape notes. Light to medium bodied and clean, dry palate.

erway (1004) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - JAN 15, 2005
Pours a lite amber w/ a nice frothy head. Like all of Rodís beers, this one wreaks of hops. Lots of cascade/ centtenials right away in the nose. Only problem is thatís all you smell. Some breadiness at first taste but that moves on to a huge hop bouquet quickly. Tons of grassiness and citrus. A big bitter finale. Clean ferment. Like the other bitters and Pale Ales from 2nd street, this one lies on the side of an IPA in the hop category. Could really benefit from some more crystal malts.

Terminus (3237) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - JUL 6, 2004
tap at brewery-pours an amber/copper hue with minimal white head around glass edge. sweet citrust aroma but not that strong. very dry hopped for a Bitter. The flavors are mostly noble and citrus hops with a touch of earthy malt tones, but the hops were more present. kinda one-dimensional. piney finish. not bad, but needs more malt

MrRomero (1975) - Nolanville, USA - JUN 20, 2004
Poured clear orange with a thin white head. Lightly floral, fruity aroma with a good amount of hops present. Taste is citrusy (orange) and quite hoppy. Finish is quite bitter. Pretty good beer.
