Bready malty aroma with caramel, raisin, earthy hops.
Pours a slightly hazy color with small frothy white head
Bready malty taste that is well balanced with floral, earthy hops.
Medium bodied, medium co2, slightly bitter oaky finish
Enjoyable. Very well balanced and easy to drink.

On tap at Mcp’s at LT with Patty, Kara and Andy. It pours golden with a white head. The aroma is fruity with a hint of malt and citrusy hops. The flavor is pretty dry and hoppy with hints of tropical fruit and pine. Very clean in the finish. Nice, but kind of thin. Koskela (505) - Marysville, California, USA - APR 23, 2015
I get a orangy citrusy hop aroma from this dark yellow hazy brew with big bubbles raising to form an off white head. A nice hop flavor up front then bitterness and sweetness mix through out the lightish medium bodied brew ending with a bitterish and biscuit aftertaste. kathouse (1877) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - APR 17, 2015
On tap at Yard House. Amber with a nominal white head. Flowery hop aroma is mild but pleasant. Body is slightly dry. Caramel, bread malt flavors and a clean finish. Banksiz (134) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 3, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 11, 2015 22 oz bottle, labeled at 5.4% ABV. Nose is mostly piney with a touch of malty toastiness. Moderate bitterness, slightly watery body, like an English bitter. A touch of tea-like astringency. Pleasant bitter aftertaste. Flavor is best at 55-60 F, and it really loses it if drunk even a few degrees cooler. Good session beer, compares to an English bitter in drinkability, although at 5.4%, the ABV is too high for it to be a real pint at the pub.

A little fruity, a little bitter. All in all its a pretty standard ale with a lower abv that should allow this to be an all night drinker, but the aftertaste is very heavy and justs sits on your tongue which changes the flavor of subsequent sips. Nice beer to visit, but I wouldnt want to live there. maddmatt639 (331) - Pacifica, California, USA - OCT 23, 2014
No retention and no lacing. Smells of malt, sweet bread and grapefruit. Tastes of pine and sweet malt. No aftertaste.

solid brewery, but this one’s pretty weak. it always makes me wonder when the brewer is calling it a session beer. no creativity on this one. nothing offensive, but quite boring, subdued flavor, aroma, body...a lingering dry bitter finish it’s only saving grace."

27 aug 2014, bottle. Orange, a tad hazy, really foamy. Med body and mildly fizzy. Kind of sweet cereal malt, light lemon, slightly bitter finish. Okay.
