illidurit (2132) - Petaluma, California, USA - JUL 26, 2012
On tap at the brewery during RBSG 2012. Pours orange with a khaki head. Crystal malty, sweetish with mild astringency, not much in the way of hops -- maybe a citric twang. Generic brewpub fare.

joeneugs (3175) - Livermore, California, USA - APR 8, 2012
On tap at the brewpub. It pours reddish amber with an off white head. the aroma has some cherries and toasted malt. The flavor is dark fruity malts with big hop bitterness that comes across as spicy. Full bodied and smooth with a strong finish. A really nice amber ale.

Tap at the brewery. Rating #27. Dark red/amber with a light beige head. Sweet caramel sugar in the nose, not super sweet, just a real nice light sweetness. Nice rich light sweet flavor, caramel malts, really nice aftertaste. (1636)
