Thanks merc for bringing a growler of this to the tasting.

The beer pours a slightly hazy amber golden yellow with a loose white head that dissipates quickly...looks like a wheat beer. The nose is hoppy with notes of bubblegum and citrus fruit. Taste-wise the beer drinks with a lot more grain/wheat sweetness and has a hearty hop profile that's reminiscent of the same citrus fruits found in the nose. The mouthfeel is sweet with a well balanced citrus hoppiness and a slightly lingering wheat graininess. This beer is damn drinkable and worth seeking out for pint or growler.

On Tap

The Bruery
Placentia, CA

Murky, darker yellow with a bit of gold. Creamy, persistent near-white head. Spots of stick left down the glass. Appropriately pretty pale ale.

Some citrus hop elements peeking through around simple bread and grain notes. Simple and straightforward and not terribly aromatic. A touch of sweetness as well.

Moderate bitterness, some mild citrus and pine elements peeking through, and sweet grains and bread. Incredibly drinkable.

Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Crisp. Disappearing.

A nice, thirst-quenching pale ale made for SoCal's warm weather days.

On tap at the brewery. Mild and light yellow color, thin 1/3" white head on it. Aroma was almost belgian. Certainly wasn't hoppy. Really straddled the line aroma wise between belgian and American.

Lacks hop taste. Lacks hop bitterness. It continues to straddle style guidelines. Tastes like a grand cru of a belgian pale ale, american pale ale and a saison. In fact, flavor wise, it tends to lean toward the saison side of things, with its dry, light and mild earthy pepper aspect. Definitely hides any hopping.

I don't really get what the Bruery was trying to get at with this beer. Uninteresting to the max.

On tap for the Bruery Initiation Celebration held at The Phoenix Club in Anaheim, CA.

Pours a murky dark yellow with a foamy off-white head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, citrus zest, spices, and a Belgian yeast aroma. Taste is much the same with hop and yeast flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a very yeast and spice forward presence.

On-tap at the source, on to the beer:

This pale ale is goldenrod colored and topped with a small head with a few patches of lace and light creamy retention. The aroma smells like a hybrid of Belgian and American pale ales, bringing notes of floral, honey, perfume, and The Bruery's house yeast. If it leans in one direction, it leans towards the American side. On tasting, you can't help but notice the strong presence of floral and pine, which rides the accent of fruity house yeast. It's a clean beer which is refreshing and makes as a good everyday beer.
