A finger and half of head on a clear, copper colored body.
The aroma is a malty smell quickly followed by a lemon candy scent.
The taste starts off with moderate sweetness, backed up by a lemon bitterness.
A crisp texture with moderate carbonation and medium body.

pours a nice redish brown with a fluffy small head. This beer has a complex mix of sweetness and hoppyness, there are piney hops, carmel sweetness, citrus sweetness, it is lightly earthy with medium bitter aftertaste.

Sweet malty aroma, dark copper red, surprising for apple ale. Tastes maltose than a typical pale with nice bitter hop finish. Solid, not awesome.

Tasted from a bottle. Pours a unique aroma, beautiful dark amber color, and a large frothy head. I agree with the "caramel maltiness" description. An unusual tasting beer

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Extremely frothy head poured out of a bottle, with a strong hop / caramel aroma. It has a dark deep ambers hue. This is a very unique ale, I find it a cross between a stout and a pale ale. Itís straddles the line very nicely. Nice mash up out of San Francisco.

Pours clear and copper with a head that disappears slowly. The aroma is sweet and malty with caramel notes. Taste is sweet with a bit of light bitterness. Medium bodied with long aftertaste.
Overall a quite good beer. Nothing outstanding, but a fine beer for drinking with friends.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle. Murky deep amber with a huge, foamy, beige head and some lacing. Aroma of bread/biscuit dough, cherry and light vinegar. Flavor is biscuity malt with a light tartness and mild hop bitterness. Medium body with active carbonation. I think this one was slightly infected, would like to try again.
