Sampler at the brewpub in SF. Pours gold with a small white head. Nose of grassy and floral hops. Light to medium body. Flavor is light malts with floral hops. Touch of pine in the bitter finish. Pretty average.

Brewhemia (297) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 6, 2016
Light amber with very little white head. Some grassy and piney aroma but not overly much. Lots of piney flavor in the taste with lots of bitterness on the finish. I like the flavor and the bitter punch but I think it lacks malt balance (more sweetness and/or malt flavors).

joeneugs (6314) - Livermore, California, USA - SEP 19, 2016
On tap at Lake Chalet. Labeled as Lake Merritt IPA. It pours a golden color with an off white head. The aroma has some honey, toffee, citrus and pine. The flavor has heavy piney bitterness and background notes of citrus and cooked vegetables. A little toffee and caramel. Well below average.

Light but nice in color. Minimal nose. Not all that bitter, dominated by floral hop flavors with a touch of earthiness and pine. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

brokensail (16393) - Dublin, California, USA - DEC 25, 2012
Clear golden pour with a white head. Definitely a strong butter note to the nose. Some grass, floral hops, and bready sweetness. Light citrus peel in there, too. The flavor is somewhat sweet and quite buttery. Tons of diacetyl, a mild bitterness, some bread, floral hops, and lots of grass. As with the nose, light citrus peel notes.

lusikka (7793) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 19, 2012
Draught @ the brewpub, San Francisco. Rated on 18.10.2012.
Pours a clear golden colour with loads of bubbles. Aroma of grainy malts, grass and citrus. Flavour of grainy malts, strong citrus, herbs and grass. Medium bodied, hard carbonation and grassy bitter finish. Their golden ale had a German feeling and so does this.
