First beer of the ol 14 beer sampler! Poured clear healthy golden with a short cap of white head. The aroma picked up plenty of honey presence over more sweetness (pale malt and some fruit).. became a bit artificial with warmth. The flavor had juicy floral notes and lighter fruits supported by bread and honey maltage.. dry finish with grass and light pale malts. Creamy, heavier carbonation on the palate with a dry feel overall.. bit grainy on the back.

Tap @ Pizza Port, Carlsbad. Pours a clear amber color with a lacy white head. Aroma is malt with grain notes faintly detectable. Taste is the same, with the beer remaining sublimely smooth throughout and a nice grain finish. I found this a very enjoyable everyday/session beer.

On tap at Pizza Port C’bad. Pours clear amber with a frothy head that left a nice thin lacing. Nose is sweet malt, crisp and clean, start is sweet and has a nice grain profile with the top middling in it feel. Finish has a pleasant acidic bite, the hops delectable in their spiciness, dry aftertaste a nice break from getting slammed over the head with all the west coast hop bombs out here right now! It is the chronic~

UPDATED: NOV 20, 2008 Great head good aroma. Super malt yet a bit of lager taste. The hops are really mellow, hiding behind a caramel malt flavor. Not perfect, but the highest score I have ever given to a beer with "lagery" in the description.

On tap at Pizza Port in Carlsbad, CA--Poured a light amber-copper body with a fluffy white head. Nose of creamy English yeast and biscuit malts. Grassy, stale, and oxidized tasting. Not very good.

Draught, described by Jeff as a Best Bitter Deep amber beer, with a small white head. Artichoke aroma, maybe a bit phenolic, strange; drying grass. Old, stale cookies, bit of diacetyl? Malty, no hops, even the UK ones are not traceable. Light, not too present on the palate - maybe thats too British for comfort. Too mainstream for my idea - and if the hempen from the C.D. is correct, another one to add to my idea that hempen is a useless addition.

On draft, pours a clear copper color with thin head. Mild aroma. Sweet malty taste with just a little bitterness. I was expecting more hops out of this one. It was okay.
