Served in a shaker pint glass at SmallBar Fullerton.

Gotta like a craft brewer that will make a true session beer (no correction necessary from Ding this time...). This one pours a dark, garnet-highlighted black-brown topped by a finger of cream-tan foam. The nose comprises light-ish roasted malts, light leek, blackened pretzels, and yellow grapefruit peel. The taste holds notes of light leek, light vinyl, darkly-/bitterly-roasted coffee, and a touch of the underside of an orange rind. The body is a light medium, with a very light moderate carbonation, a smooth feel, and a dry finish. Overall, a fairly nice CDA, but yet another one that can't find a pleasant balance between the roast and the hops. Instead, the two factions clash more than the Hatfields and McCoys. Shame, really, as the rest of it's pretty good...

had this from a growler and poured into a pint glass. No real head to it but pours a solid brown color.

Extremely good aromas of roasted nuts, caramel, malts and a touch of hop aromas too. Very good depth accompanies this as well

light bodied with a nice feel, but lacking a bit. Well balanced with flavors of roasted malts, caramel and a touch of hops on the back end

a nice session ale. If the feel and flavors were as good as the nose, this would really be something. Still, it's enjoyable as is
