The Beers of California
Bottled Date: None
A: Deep amber with burgundy hues and a light tan head with a sheet like lace on the glass.
S: Syrupy caramel sweetness and biscuity malt. There is a fresh pine scent which pairs with the malt in a balanced way.
T: Caramel and sugar thick up front transitioning to a mostly earthy, leafy, and pine bitterness with a tinge of citrus zest.
M: There is both crispness and smoothness which adds to the medium body. The carbonation is moderate and there is a nice linger on the palate.
O: The balance and smoothness makes for an extremely drinkable and sessionable brew. Although enjoyable the beer fails to stand out. A beer that I will enjoy when around but not one that I will actively seek out.

A - Deep ruby, rocky off white head. Solid lacing.
S - Medium intensity tones of nuts, caramel and grassy hops.
T - More of the same from the nose. Malt forward with a sweet toasty character finishing with an astringent grassy hop character, really not my thing personally but very true to style.
M - Refreshing and quaffable.
O - Amazing take on the style.
Serving type: on-tap
