GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - NOV 4, 2012
Tap at Pratt St Alehouse. Pours a clear tea amber. Thick, creamy cask or nitro looking head. Muted nose. Taste is dusty and vegetal. Mild bark bitterness. Not a lot going on, though almost every beer of the 10 we sampled as a group had some very astringent and chemical flavors. I think there is a major flaw in the overall brewing process here.
