UPDATED: JUN 13, 2007 Sampled with Brewer Brian Hunt at his brewery. I offered him some Duchesse de Bourgogne as we sampled his beers. We agreed the Late Afternoon is certainly not a tart...quite the misnomer. I suggested a hoppy ESB or English IPA. I brought a keg to Beachwood BBQ in Seal Beach and it was suggested it is an American Brown. In any case itís rich and tasty, but in no way a tart!

(On tap - Toronado) Fairly pale, amber golden with a small, off-white head. Fruity, somewhat berry-like aroma. Fairly light body with an unclean malt profile and then a distinct, bitter finish. A somewhat weird and unrefined beer, presumably a Belgian experiment of some sort. Just not really Belgian, nor tart. 290307

Draft. Rich amber beer with a thin off-white head. Low malt aroma. tart/oaky flavor with backing malt. Not overly tart,o but it lingers with the oak. Medium body. Gets better as you drink more. Dry finish. I donít know what heís going for in this beer, so feel free to change the category of "ale" to somethign more appropriate.
