Draft. Nitro. Golden-amber beer with a whitish nitro head. Toasted malt aroma. Toasted malt and light grapefruit flavor. Medium bodied. Toasted malt and light grain lingers with light grapefruit.
On tap exclusively at Pete’s brass rail and carwash in Danville, CA. I was told this is a pale ale/rye mix. It pours a dark amber color with a tan head. Very dark for a pale ale. Fruity, hoppy aroma and the taste is tropical with mango, papaya etc. It has a strong bitter finish but with a sugary sweet backbone throughout. Pretty unusual beer. It leaned more toward the IPA category IMO. It reminded me of Dale’s. Very good beer.
