Bottle shared by Marcus. Pours amber tinged gold with a good creamy off-white head. Nice aroma of light, largely citric fruit. Med body. It’s very fruity. Light stone fruit and citrus. A noble hop bite - grasy. Very pleasant & mellow. Finishes with a hint of apricot.

Tap at Sacramento Brewing Co. Pours amber gold with a creamy white head. Aroma seems rather citrus. Body is medium with sharp carbonation. Flavor suggests wheat and barley malts with quite a good level of citric bitter. Finishes creamy and well balanced, but finally bitter clearly wins. Very nice bitter beer. Could rank with IPAs. Or Imperial Pilsners.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - MAY 7, 2011
355mL from Beer Camp Sampler Pack. The pour is clear gold deep yellow, large, creamy off-white, rocky head. Excellent whipped cream retention and spotty lace. Aroma is honey, sugar, apple juice, mulled cider. Taste is sweet, mild bitterness, light apple juice, spicy alcohol, big malt huskiness and raw oatmeal. No biscuit or diacetyl I get from Anchor Steam, which I’ll consider the classic of this style. Palate is fuller, sweet, apple juice, malty, mildly metallic.

Bottle. Pours a clear golden orange with a medium to large white head. Crisp grain, light caramel, toast and malt. Clean and sweet, toast and a smooth amount of caramel toastiness, light crackery grain. Finishes dry and grainy, more toast. Nice and easy drinking.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 6, 2011
Bottle:   Pale golden, very clear, moderate frothy white head, spotty lacing.   Sweet straw/grass/hay on the nose.   Seems a little mealy, but not too bad.   Similar on the tongue, straw, hay, and general grassiness.   Tiz fairly sweet, and also mealy.   Bigger than others.   Seems fairly full bodied.   Slight hint of fruitiness to this one in the finish.   Overall tiz decent.   Seems to be a bit of both words.   Minor hops as well.

portableparty (2292) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAY 6, 2011
2011 bottle (beer camp series #8). Clear golden amber pour with a big off white frothy head that fades to a film. Aroma is sweet grassy grain malts and some caramel. Taste is more the same grassy malts and finishs with some faint fruitiness and spice. Palate is thin slick and finishes dry. Easy drinker on warm sunny days.

Pours into pint glass a deep golden yellow witih half-finger thick foamy cloud-white head,some bubbles Grassiness, slight toasted malted barley ,little to no hops present. Has a typical but good lager aroma. Actually good aroma for a lager style. Nice mouthwash of lager-type maltiness,some nuttiness,faint fruits and a good but faint trace of hops in the background.Carbonation is at the above-medium gassy/burpy level,but not overdone.Lightly medium body,average for a beer of this style. Very good, light yet still has some good palate without being too sweet.

With all the monstrous Sierra Nevada beers on tap at Aces & Ales, this one stands out like a sour thumb, so I’m trying to be as objective as possible. Very little aroma, but orange in color. This is very malty, esp. compared to everything else tonight. Pretty good, but not on this big-beer evening.
