3.56/5 rDev -7.3%

Served on-draught into a 4.5 oz taster glass at 38 Degrees in Alhambra over the weekend. Reviewed from notes. This is the first beer I've had from Craftsman.
A: Pours a one finger head of white colour. Soft complexion. Good thickness. Good (~4-5 minute) retention. Nice even lacing as the head recedes. Appealing. Creamy and luscious. Body is a clear vibrant copper. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show. A lovely appearance.
Sm: Nice lacto sourness. Pale malts. Clean. Good yeasty presence. Limited tartness. No real fruity notes. No alcohol is detectable. There's not a great deal going on here, but it's a good all around aroma for the style of moderate strength. Looking forward to trying it.
T: Nice clean lacto sourness sits atop a clean unobtrusive pale and grassy malt foundation. Balanced, if simple. Flavorful and enjoyable. I'm digging it. Tasty. Decent subtlety. Kind of plain for a sour, but it's effective.
Mf: Smooth and wet. Clean. Good carbonation. Good thickness, body, and presence on the palate. Suits the flavour profile well. Crisp.
Dr: A drinkable and enjoyable sour that's held back by its simplicity and lack of boldness. I'd get it again. A surprisingly good well priced local sour. An excellent intro sour. I'm going to have to start looking for Craftsman's beers more deeply.

On-tap at Beachwood I,
A: Pours a reddish brown with a light off-white head, fair retention, spotty lace.
S: Notes of oak and cherry, some acetic acid.
T: Nice off-dry flavour with cherries and some dark wildflowers. Good oak undercurrents, well made.
M: Medium-bodied, moderate acidity, refreshing, drinks lighter than it is.
O: A solid red beer from Craftsman, they can certainly make good sours up in Big Bang Theory land. Hope to have this again someday.
