My Bottom Line:bb (9789) - Alamo, California, USA - AUG 26, 2003
This American Pale Ale’s grapefruity hops and lightly toasted pale malts benefit from a decent body and pleasant bitterness.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the hazy golden, lacing well.
-The smooth effervescence increases drinkability.
-The hop bitterness was a tad leafy, and a bit resinous.
-The flavor profile was a bit mineral at times; perhaps the line was getting dirty?
On tap at the brewpub.
Draft. Too malty for the hops. Reddish/amber color, but very little bitterness.
