At the DeYoung Museum in San Francisco...but I really could have had it anywhere!
Coppery-red pour with about 3/4 inch of head subsides quickly and leaves just a bit of lace. Medium carbonation. Aroma is heavy on the malt, lots of biscuit and cracker with a light floral sweetness and a bit of noble hop earthiness. Pretty clean.
Taste is pretty sweet with a bit, forward malt presence with toasted biscuit and caramel dominating with a bit of a grainy finish. There's a suggestion of hops in a light floral note, but nothing obtrusive. Creamy in the mouth with a medium-light body. Downright chuggable but a bit boring, nonetheless, it's a good session ale and I can see why it's popular with the crossover crowd.
