On tap at 99 Bottles in Santa Cruz. Poured into a pint glass. Deep amber with a tan head that sticks around forever.
Aroma is sweet and caramely, with toffee and cookie-ish malt. Hardly any hop influence here, surprising for a California amber.
Flavor is identical to the smell. Lots of sweet bready malt and maybe some dark fruit.
Mouthfeel is creamy but a little flat. Still pretty easy to drink.
Serving type: on-tap

355ml Bottle from Good Spirits Co, Glasgow (£3.40):
Deep copper amber with a 3cm, foamy white head that looks slightly creamy. with great retention & zero movement until you actually take a drink.
Lots of malts & sweetness on the nose with caramel too but not much hops, some earthy ones appear though. Well balanced with some floral notes with a few dark fruits. Sweet, fruity & good strength.
Sweet malts & caramel flavours that match the nose well. There is some background fruits coming through with some light, floral hops featuring as well but again it's the malts that lead the way.
Smooth & fairly light bodied, almost watery in parts but there was a pleasant sweetness throughout & a clean, slightly dry finish that has a lingering bitterness to it.
This one started very well with the smell being a particular highlight but sadly things started to fade slightly after that with the taste seeming a little watery, more so that I would have liked. Not one I'd pick up again I'm afraid.
