Draft at beer run. Pours golden with a white head. Leaves a lot of lacing in the glass. Big grapefruit on the nose and tongue. Finished clean. Just a lovely and flavorful beer.

Being very familiar with this brew, I was surprised to see I had not reviewed it. Can to teku; deep, clear reddish-amber with a supremely pleasing head. Oozing hop aromas before I even put my nose near it. Right off the bat, a prickly pepper nose rich with ripe fruit, toasted malt, savory/umami, foliage. Taste is toasty spice/wood, little layer of citrus juice, a malty, pale floral linger. Easy body, unmistakeable flavors, rich and vibrant balance of malt and hops. Finishes easy, goes down delightfully. This one is definitely tops in the session category, among a small handful of others. puboflyons (3433) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 19, 2015
From the can. Beautiful heady copper-amber pour with great clarity. Big grassy and pine aroma and a more subtle toasted bread and caramel note. The body is light to medium. The cereal, bread, and caramel malts are there in the taste and the dry hop bitterness rises up at the end and lingers. A good session beer for hop heads. ramboraffe (2254) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 18, 2016
335 ml can from Systembolaget beställningssortiment. Hazy orange with white head. Wonderful pine, zest, floral, citrus, tropical fruit and light caramel. Dry with medium bitterness and medium carbonation. After drinking this I finally understand the true meaning of this beer style! TedE (1332) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 7, 2017
355ml can into shaker. Aroma of cashews, wood shavings and resin. Golden bronze beer, good sudsy head, light carbonation. Sharp and crisp in the mouth. Medium bodied. Taste and finish have more pine plus some lemon and sweet grapefruit. Solid malt undertones linger. What a great beer! Easy drinking, complex and only 3.8%!

on tap-pours a white head with bubbles and cloudy yellow color. Aroma is nice citrus hops-lemon. Taste is nice citrus hops-lemon, faint light malt. Oakes (17676) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 15, 2008
Light amber colour. Fresh, floral aroma evokes tropical fruits. Not bad body for a low alcohol beer. Lots of bitterness and tropical fruit flavour. I like the concept of the San Diego Session, and this one is done very well. doubleo (1432) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 21, 2008
On-tap at the Carroll Canyon brewery. Pours golden orange with a moderate white head, touch of lace. Smells crisp and floral hoppy, very nice, with some malt as well. Pretty damn tasty for 3.5%abv. Light, floral hops, good malt backbone. Thin light body, crisp carbonation. Awesome beer. awaisanen (1304) - Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 17, 2008
On cask at the PP Real Ale Fest. Pours a mostly transparent, honey gold color with a thick head of sudsy white. Clean, refreshing hop aromas of citrusy lemon blossoms and a hint of caramel malt. Simple, but extremely clean with a really fresh hop aroma. Light bodied, creamy mouthfeel with a soft, cask-typical carbonation level. Bready malt flavors with a hint of caramel up front on the palate, followed by a wave of fresh, floral, lemon blossom hops. Wonderfully refreshing and clean for a low ABV beer; completely devoid of the cereal-like grainy malts, astringency, or naked yeast byproducts that often pollute beers in this weight class. Quaffable, and flavorwise, enjoyable enough on cask for me to seek out several pulls. This was the highlight of the RA festival offerings for me.

this is a successful cocnept beer...kick ass aroma of sugary sweet but floral hops...the color is solid bronz and inviting. flavors were thickly layed out with a sweet citrus hop character and pretty pronounced body for Utah alcohol levels...super clean, super flavorful session ale. props
