On tap at the 2013 Firestone Walker Invitational held at the Paso Robles Event Center in Paso Robles, CA.

Pours a clear reddish-brown with a foamy bone head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, caramel, and fruit aromas. Taste is much the same with caramel and fruit flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with some solid aromas and flavors.

Had this one other time @ Surly when we did the brewery tour and really liked it

On tap at Republic.

Served in a pint glass this lager served with a thin finger of light tan head that quickly recedes to a layer. Clear. amber with ruby highlights.

Aroma is weak. Lightly toasted cereal grains with alcohols coming out.

Taste is fairly straightforward. Very clean grainy with toasted malt with a fair amount of brown sugar notes. Finishes with typical lager slight noble hop bitterness with a carbonation zing.

Light bodied with typical lager high CO2. Easy to drink brew with some decent malty cereal flavor with a hint of toastiness.
