3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught, Billygoat Tavern, Mt. Shasta, CA
Golden-amber colour. Fresh, spicy hop (Mt Hood?...guess I was wrong there...I’m stunned...) character with hints of breadcrust. Light character - an amber with hints of caramel and the same spicy hop. Decent if unadventurous brew, complemented a corned beef sandwich well, too, when the food came.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: The pour is a clear amber color with a fluffy off-white head that leaves some nice lacing.
S: A toasted, biscuity aroma with a fairly light hop aroma.
T: I was a bit let down by the nose, but the flavor was an improvement. The toasted malt is the main flavor but there is a nice hop bitterness as well.
M: The body is light and the level of carbonation is moderate.
D: The alcohol is moderate, which makes it easy to drink. It’s just not a terribly complex beer, but certainly not bad.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pine/citrus aroma. Clean aroma. Amber color with vigorous off-white head. Starts with strong flavor - sort of cedar/juniper. Don’t know where the pine/citrus went. Medium mouthfeel, thins on swishing. About the middle there is a warm, pepper impression. Never had anything like this. The "pepper" sort of takes the place of hop, though there is detectable bitterness. Ends with a bit of sweetness struggling against everything else. Which may indicate balance. Unique. Good stuff. There’s a bit of lacing as well.
