Had right after the Grizzly on my way to Yosemite Park at a saloon in a neighboring town... Golden in color... Mild hops aroma... Mild hoppy flavor initially, tastes kind of watery and weak going down, slight bitterness on the palate... Average beer but better than most east coast pale ales... Definitely drinkable.

Brownish gold, small white head, aroma of citrus & pine hops. Malt character is good, fruity (oranges?), hops finish is very nice. Well balanced and enjoyable, a decent APA.

Honey colored pour with a quickly fading head. Nose has a weird butterscotch aroma. Slight hop bite and a strange sweetness come out on the first sip. Dont know what to make of this one.

Out of a pint glass outside of Yosemite at "California’s oldest saloon."
Hazy gold color with a nice white head that remains full and lacy.
Nice hop aroma.
Taste of well balanced hops and malts follows through with generous citrusy hops on the finish.

Poured into a shaker glass. Aroma is mostly malty. Flavor is more bitter with more malt body. Palate is full bodied. Really similar to Sierra Nevada draft. Overall pretty good!
