Sampled at the La Jolla location on 12/12/08, reviewed from notes, my buddy Nathan who I was there with enjoys this beer quite a bit, I did not exactly agree with him though, color was a clear medium orange color, 1/2 inch creamy white head, some lacing but disappeared quickly, smell was almost non existent with toast, caramel, mild hoppiness, and straw, flavor was very watered down with a weird roasted malt flavor that did not seem to fit in with the style, mostly malt in the taste and needed something to provide some balance and substantial flavors, mouthfeel was thin and malty, too much carbonation, thin bodied, no lingering tastes, could drink a fair amount of this but no reason to with the limited taste, would not drink again (740 characters)

This is the flagship beer, and it's actually pretty good. This tap version is a red amber color with an average head. The smell is floral and mild. The menu says it's Hallertau. Mild bitterness gives way to a medium to full bodied maltiness. There's a bread and biscuit flavor in there, but it's not grainy. Finish is more sweet than dry. I'm glad I like their flagship beer. See my other review of the cask conditioned version, which gets more points because the head looks better and the aroma is better (from the dry hopping) (528 characters)
