On tap at Taps. Color was golden amber with a white head and some lacing. Aroma of caramel apples, vanill and sugar. Very nice. flavor of yeast, apple, bubblegum with a bit of alcohol and bread. Like most of their beers, this was solid to good for the style.

joeneugs (3250) - Livermore, California, USA - APR 13, 2011
On tap at the brewery. Pours orangy/gold with a small off white head. The aroma is full with caramel and sweet fruity hard candy. The flavor is very sweet with caramel and some fruit. The body is full and slightly oily. Nice maltyness in the finish. I’m not a fan of the style, but this was one of the better ones I’ve tried. Nice effort.

ChazMania (653) - Pasadena, California, USA - JUL 3, 2009
On tap, then got a growler filled. Nice easy drinking beer. Good color of amber and deep orange. Mild banana and vanilla aroma, with a slightly sweet flavor. Certainly worth trying. I always get a growler filled of something while I’m in that area.
