3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Orange gold color. Medium sized white foamy head. Aroma is malty and fruity. A medium-bodied California Common (Steam Beer) Malts are fruity and sweet. Hops are slightly bitter and fairly mild. Subtle beer. The steam process really allows the malt grainy to show in this beer. Touches of orange and citrus. Very smooth. Nice balance. Would make a good session beer. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.
