Pour out of 12 oz bottle, clear orange pour with white head that lasts relatively well. Aroma brought notes of grass, slight cracker, biscuit, hints of lemon, vanilla, hints of honey, pretty mild but lots in there. Taste is a mix of grass, cracker, biscuit, slight earth, honey notes, finishing slightly bitter, dry. Not overly complex, but drinkable with no big off flavors.

Braudog (5489) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - MAY 9, 2013
Bottle. Pretty amber beer, pleasantly active, with a nice pillowy head of off-white foam. The initial aroma is nice and woodsy, like a wet summer in the Pacific northwest. But this drinks with a more subdued earthy tone, more of a wet grassiness, tinged with a bit of almost smoky funk. (#5012, 5/9/2013)

Sampled on 3/18/2013. This California Common/Steam beer pours a medium orange gold color from a 12oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head with good lacing. The aroma is bready and caramel, with some fruit and perhaps some hoppiness. A medium bodied California Common. The malts are caramel, bready and sweet. The hops are grapefruity and citrusy. Its quite hoppy for a steam beer, perhaps the Pacific Northwest treatment of the style. Decent carbonation. It does seem to be missing that full mouthfeel one usually has in a steam beer, but it makes up for that with a very nice hop profile. Nice session beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.
