bhensonb (14490) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 1, 2009
Bottle from a local Grocery Outlet store. Pours copper with not much white head. Aromas of lightly roasted malt and some fruity/citrus hop. Medium body with sharpish carbonation. Flavor is light roast caramel, and a fair amount of spice - like grassy/citrus hop. Nicely bitter. Spicey enough to make it enjoyable. Finishes with a touch of light fruit. Better than a number of Lion Brewery productions.
