Draft at the Bruery. Clear reddish amber, with an off-white head. Caramel, sweet malt, light fruit, bread, and light roast. Meh, an okay amber, nothing special.

20 jan 2013, tap at the Bruery. Light walnut, clear, no bubbles. Nose is typical red ale with mildly noticeable alcohol. Thin body and mildly fizzy. Tastes of oatmeal cookies without raisins. Meh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

brokensail (16057) - Dublin, California, USA - DEC 23, 2012
A dark amber pour with an off-white head. Some sweet toffee maltiness up front along with mild roast notes. Plenty of toast, some cocoa, and floral, herbal, and earthy hops. Light bitterness to the flavor. Fairly mild roast, to go with sweet toffee, bread, and toast. The hop profile is somewhat earthy, with very light fruit, and some perfume notes.
