Poured into a liter mug at Gestalt in San Francisco. Nice dark amber pour with a indistinct white head. Decent caramel aroma and a nice bitter bite and very easy to drink in large amounts.

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - JUL 29, 2008
Cask at Toronado. Brown/dark amber. Small off white head. Aroma of floral, bitter hops and lightly toasted malt. Similar flavor is a bit muted, some lightly resinous hops on the end. Medium/light body, smooth. Easy drinking, but would like a bit more flavor.

3.8
bitbucket (2166) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - JUL 15, 2008
On hand-pump at Toronado. Pours clear amber a dense and lacy off-white head. Light body, nearly still. Aroma of citrus, herbal hops and what appears to be rye... or maybe not. Light body, nearly still. Taste of cookie dough. Dry woody spice finish, that really gives me a n impression of rye. Hmmm.....

3.9
doubleo (1432) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 30, 2008
On-tap at the Green House Tavern in Sebastopol. Check it out! Psych. Pours dark reddish amber with a moderate offwhite head, good lace. Smells earthy hoppy, somewhat dark as well. Tastes hoppy and dark earthy sweet, slightly bitter, caramelly. The bitterness lingers nicely. Medium body, good carbonation.

3.5
Schultsc (572) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 19, 2008
On tap at Flavor in Santa Rosa. Medium copper-red amber color with a thin, fine, off-white head. Medium malt aroma with fruity malt sweetness and a bit of hops. Some grain astringency with "red" malt notes, a moderate hops backbone with some fruitiness to it, and finally some light roasted grain. Nicely balanced medium body with a nice grain fullness.
