Tap at the Paso Robles brewery. Medium brown pour, with a nice little white head. Nice smokey, malty aroma. Clean fresh flavor, a little woody as well, nice. JohnC (3008) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - OCT 26, 2008
On tap at PP San Clemente’s Oktoberfest. Interesting idea, an oak-aged Oktoberfest. AFA the beer goes, it’s nothing special and there was some element of the flavor that I couldn’t quite place, but I didn’t enjoy. doubleo (1432) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 26, 2008
On-tap at the San Diego Brewing Co Pours clearish copper with a thin white head, good lace. Smells caramelly malty and light metallic. Tastes caramelly malty and more heavy metallic, some cardboard, maybe a hint of wood. Overall, not very good, the worst beer I’ve had in a while. Medium body, ok carbonation. bb (9789) - Alamo, California, USA - OCT 17, 2008
Draft. Amber beer with an off-white head. malt and light oak aroma. Oaky, malty, light caramel flavor. Medium bodied. oak, caramel, and malt linger. Too oaky. AgentSteve (1647) - SF Bay Area, California, USA - OCT 15, 2008
Attractive golden orange pour with a two finger off white head. The nose is subtle bitterness and not much else. The flavor is mild and easy drinking with a very nice oak finish.

On tap at Pete’s Brass Rail and Carwash in Danville, CA. It pours gold with thin white head. The aroma is sweet with malts and has a hint of noble hops. The taste is mild and doesn’t come off overly sweet. I get sweet malts balanced somewhat with grainy malts. There’s also a pale maltiness mixed in there too.
