Okay, moving on from the Weyerbacher, here's Lagunitas Pale Ale, New Dogtown, served on draught in a standard pint glass:

Appearance: A golden clear body glittering sweetly printine in the light, with a two-finger white head that never dissipates, down, down, down the glass. It's not going anywhere. Beautiful. Gorgeous lacing follows the head all the way to the bottom of the glass. Wow. That's just... awesome.

Aroma: Hops on the nose right away, followed by a distinct floral fragrance. Not bad.

Taste: Pine. A touch of citrus in tone. Good and solid with some bitterness on the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium body, with light carbonation throughout. Bitterness at the back of the tongue.

Overall: A decent pale ale, and I was really impressed by its look. The taste was surprisingly complex, and it held its own all the way to the end. A solid effort from Lagunitas.

Appearance - Nice golden color, thick white foamy head, laces the glass very well. Looks amazing.

Smell - Nice aroma of the bitterness of hops. No other smells come out

Mouthfeel - Nice foam still, smooth, and refeshing.

Taste - Nice hop taste yet balanced enough not to let it get to biter
