On draft at Sauce, San Francisco
Pale gold, white film.
Grain sack, hint of lemon.
Breadstick malts, lemon slushy and a hint of evergreen.
Vague lemon zest to end.
Thin, slightly clingy.

Watery and barely hopped. Nice on a hot summer eve, but doesn’t rep California very well.

Bright orange golden color with a thin aired head with short retention but leaving some laces.
Nice aroma of a light tangy citrusy with notes of lemon, tangerines, caramels and fresh tea leaves.
Taste follows nose, flavor of lemon, tangerines, spices, biscuit and slightly toasted malts, mild pine and a light digestive papaya.
Dry aftertaste with a medium bitterness.
Light body with good carbonation with tiny bubbles.
Very refreshing and easy to drink APA, not bold nor complex, but very sessionable.
