Kind of a bland and malt-liqourish flavored brew. On tap at Mitch's Seafood by the sport-fishing piers.
Pours a clear amber with a modest head in the big 22 oz glass. More of the club soda taste. Not as crisp as I'd like in a lighter lager, but not very malty either. Drinkable but even less interesting than many industrial lagers. A slight tanginess is about the best I can say for it, and it still has that kind of sweet nearly insipid taste. An earthy tough to the not very bitter hops. I would hope for a good San Diego style lager from somebody around here to counteract all the over-hyped IPAs. However,the closest I can come to a favorite local lager is Craftsman in Pasadena.
Serving type: on-tap

Clear straw color covered with a bubbly pure-white head that has decent retention. Aromas of peppery, herbal hops, gently sweet Pils malt, and clean lager yeast. Cereal-like Pilsner malt sweetness in the flavor with some grassy noble hops to balance and a touch of honey. Body is a little better than light keeping things very drinkable. A good light lager for sure and a more than solid choice for hot weather drinking.
