Tap at Toronado San Diego. Pale golden beer with a thin white head. Aroma is fairly soft and spicy. Light clove and cinnamon character over a fairly bready malt base. LIghtly peppery and quite spicy/fruity w/o the cloying sweetness that typifies US version of this style. Light cherryish fruitiness and a bit of clove/stone fruit pit spiciness. A bit of almondy character. Fairly straightforward yeasty component, but it’s still pretty nice. badlizard (5533) - Berkeley, California, USA - NOV 27, 2008
On tap at Toronado SF. Yellow with a fizzy head, funky aroma, and a sweet fruity slight honey taste. Decent. Ratman197 (14822) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - NOV 26, 2008
On tap @ Falling Rock poured a clear copper with a lasting ivory head. Aromas of spice, carmel, straw and light fruittiness. Palate was light to medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of bread, spice, light carmel and light fruittiness with a smooth lingering spiced finish. trokini (1025) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 20, 2008
Tap @ Toronado. Pours clear gold with a small white head. Crisp, floral aroma of peach and orange peel. Mirrored in the taste, but with more yeast and bubblegum, but not enough to overcome an underlying bitterness. Refreshing but not great. Snojerk321 (2960) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 18, 2008
On tap @ Toronado. Poured a deep golden color that was lightly hazed. Nose was slightly sweet and fruity, (peach and citrus). Flavor was crisp with a dry finish with a slight hint of booze.

On tap at Toronado SF. This golden/copper ale poured with a thin off-white head. There is a slightly sweet caramel malt flavor and some decent hopping. It’s a good enough beer, but lacks character. DaSilky1 (2606) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 27, 2008
Draft (Toronado SD): Filtered bronze color, a VERY solid sheet of off-white super tiny bubbled froth. Yeasty nose with notes of coriander and ash. First sip I tasted brett, but I didn’t taste that for the rest of the pint, which was weird. It was full bodied but had a somewhat wet mouthfeel. There was an adequate hop profile, at least to balance it out. The yeast certainly had a belgian/bubblegum charactersitc bt was overall pretty clean and not over powering. The finish has a slight tang to it.
