Had on tap at Hangar 24 in Redlands
Consumed on 1/24/11 coincidentally
1st trip to this local brewery

A - Clear light amber orange color with an effervescent white head

S - Smell was slightly soapy, sickly sweet to the nose

T - Slightly sour taste to start with lightly malty sweet type finish - lots of carbonation

M - High carbonation, light lingering mouth coat and sickly sweetness

D - Reminded me of a sweetened type of BMC - I would recommend this to a lover of adjuncts though I'm not certain this is what they were going for. Easily see this being a crossover beer since there wasn't much of the strong flavors that most of the highly regarded beer types have that are so strong initially for the initiate to craft beer. Not for my palate on a regular basis, pretty bland with too much sweetness in the finish...

Apearance - Pours a crystal clear straw yellow with no head.

Nose- Very nondescript. Sweet grain, faint hop presence

Palate- Refreshing and light, faintly sweet and herbal.

Mouthfeel- Thin and low on carbonation

Overall- Very uninteresting, I will not be trying this again anytime soon.

@Dublins Irish Pub, Chino Hills, CA
Pints are $3

App- A pretty standard pour. It was a very clear yellow with a decent amount of bubbles. Maybe a 1/4" of head. No cling or lace.

Smell- It was nice and crisp. Had a none of the biting lager notes. It had a good earthy note but wasn't buttery.

Taste- Pretty standard Lager. Wasnt overly butterly like most are. Had a crisp malty note with a good earthy note.

Mouth- A light body with a high carbonation. Residual sweet malts.

Drink- Pretty average beer. In offensive for a lager, not sure I'd have again
