3.8/5  rDev +4.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured into a Black Raven pint glass. Pours a medium copper amber with a fine two finger white head with good retention and lots of lacing. Constant carbonation and looks nice. Aroma of sweet caramel and biscuit malt, toffee and mild grassy hops. Flavor is malt forward; biscuit and bready malt, light grassy hops, grain. Finishes with a quite dry, lightlly toasty malt and almost tannic dry bitterness. Medium bodied with nice peppery carbonation. An off-beat take on a California common, perhaps maltier than normal; the finish is more astringent than herbal bitterness. I like the malt bill, but the finish is a bit off. Still enjoyable and interesting.
