On tap at Ladyface Ale Companie in Agoura Hills, CA.

Pours a slightly hazy copper color with a tan head that settles to an oily film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt and caramel aromas. Taste is also of malt and caramel with a slight hop finish. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is easy drinking.

On-tap at Ladyface

A: This one pours amber in color with a finger of off-white/khaki colored head.

S: An interesting aroma to this one. A touch of banana followed by floral hops. There is certainly some caramel, maybe a bit of toffee and brown sugar, too. Light spices, maybe some other sweet fruits (seems like red apples).

T: An almost salty taste and a very off sweetness. Heavy handed on the caramel, not in a good way, with some toasted bread. Minimal hop flavor, a weird, almost tart, berry flavor is also present.

M: Medium bodied with medium carbonation.

O: Just a really strange flavor and aroma to this. Seems really off.

App- pours a light brown with a glowing orange hue. thin head (taster glass though).

Ar- a tiny bit of funk (reminds me of Brett), I pick up Vienna malt and perhaps munich malt. small hint of Caramel.Once it warms up I pick up a BBq smell in the beer.

T-caramel, minimal hops, bread,finishes a wee bit bland but taste great upfront on the palate.

mf- this is carbonated well, and I can feel it in my mouth.tickles the the tongue and walls of the mouth.

D-very easy drinking Amber, sessionable (despite the 6.4 abv)

On tap. The beer has a chill haze but it's almost clear, dark copper brown, about 1 finger of fine foam. It smells strongly of Belgian yeast, honestly more similar to a Unibroue beer than anything from Belgium (still high praise). On tasting I'll go further and say that it's very similar to Maudite. Some malty sweetness upfront with a lingering aftertaste of esters, light fruits, phenols, and maybe a touch of spice. Very nice, this is easily the best currently available from Ladyface. Really nice taste overall, and the body matches, just thick enough to allow a coat over your tongue.
