I have tasting notes but I don't feel like using them. People don't know how to drink and enjoy lagers, I swear! This is the standard by which I evaluate every other lager. One of the best beers to be made in Southern California. It's incredibly underrated and really doesn't have room for improvement. Looks beautiful, smells perfect and the taste is devine. It has wonderful depth for not having layers of flavor. Having this beer first thing when I come back to Los Angeles.

On-tap at Lucky Devils, Hollywood, CA
A: The beer is clear light yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high white head that died down and left lacing on the surface and the sides of the glass and a collar around the edge.
S: Light aromas of grainy malts and grassy hops are present in the nose.
T: The taste has light flavors of grainy malts along with a slight amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is clean and easy to drink. It is a pretty good beer for the style.

I have to say, the craftsman 1903 (pasadena) is one of my favorite beers. I didn't like it much when I first tried it, due to the fact it had a bit of a bitter after taste but definitely did grow on me. If it is served cold, on tap, cold glass. It is Awesome!

The greatest mouthful of lager ever. Rich with all the malty and hoppy flavors but just 5.3%. Amber gold color in the halt-litre nonic. Really fragrant with a flowery hoppiness. The hops are aromatic with none of the pine overdose and ever-popular dank bitterness.
Mellow and bright flavors with just enough bitterness to keep you looking for that next gulp. The right hint of malty sweetness to remind you why beer tastes good. Not overly strong. A brew with a bold flavor that is distinctive yet subtle. Stone, Ballast Point, and Green Flash-- drink this and weep for your lost years!
Altogether a fine brew that reminds me why lagers should be one of our favorite styles. On tap at Tiger! Tiger! in San Diego.

On tap at one of my fav joints - Cole's French Dip in Downtown, LA.
Yep! Raul on dis one like a bumblebee on a stick of honey. Straight up, all Raul asks is why can't our major American macro's taste like this? I bet back in tha day when Cowboys were lassoin' indians and executives were jumpin out of buildings on Wall Street, this was the beer they sipped on before they did all those said thangs. Not amazing, but a solid lager.
