Tap at the West Coast Brewfest. Pours amber with a little whiteish head. Aroma is light caramel and some floral. Flavor is mild caramel and more than a little hop - mostly resin? Finishes nicely bitter.

MartinT (9411) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 14, 2010
My Bottom Line:
Spicy hops and their piney bitterness scent this American Pale Ale’s light cereal sweetness, building a very drinkable example of the style.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam laces a bit atop the clear golden amber.
-This may have been served too cold for my preference, but it remained my favourite session beer of theirs, out of the 4 I had.
-The aroma does not make you expect the brightness of the hops in the flavour profile and finish.
-The malts don’t have much personality, but they do contribute to the crisp, engaging mouthfeel.

On tap at the north Fresno location.

Grovlam (4208) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 12, 2009
Bottle @ Yosemite National Park. Average creamy white head that mostly diminished. Spare display of lacework. Amber color. Aroma of citrus, fruit, grapefruit, light caramel and hint of tasted malty notes as well. Light to medium bodied with an average carbonation and light dry texture. Light bitter and sweet flavor. Light bitter dry finish. Average APA but the surroundings made it a nice experience.

Yellow. No aroma. Nothing really to it. Not bad, not good. Nothing exciting. Just a beer.

flutetokill (523) - Fresno, California, USA - NOV 16, 2003
