On draft at brewery, consumed 01/14/08.

Medium yellow, nicely carbonated.

Aroma is piney hops.

Flavor is lightly pine hop at start then some noticeable maltiness peeks through towards the end.

Nicely balanced. I could see drinking a pint of this instead of just the taster.

Poured on tap at the Redondo Beach Brewpub. The beer was poured into a pint glass, and it shows a bright, clear golden coloring with no head. The beer has low citrus and hopped aromas. There are light initial flavors of citrus and hops, also. Pale, sour aftertaste with a lingering, weak finish. This beer starts of slow, progresses slow, and drags it's carcass across the finish line. Actually difficult to finish, but I am one who refuses to pour out or dispose of a beer.

Served on-tap at the brewpub itself in a 17 ounce glass. On to the beer:

I'm not surprised that this is a yellow-orange colored beer. The solid head and good quanitity of lace may or may not a surprise, depending on your expectations. The nose of orange and complementing diacetyl gives the beer a a bit of an English character. And the taste....slightly fruity, caramel, watery orange, mineraly. At times these tastes don't show up, so you're left with a glassfull of light-medium bodied, low carbonated stuff. A bittersweet aftertaste keeps the beer going down.

It's a decent pale ale that is easy enough to drink. It's good to wash down food, but don't expect an epiphany.
