Time to review a classic (and no, I won't going off on a tangent about how the new grading system sucks, either...that's for the forums, brah) Poured into a Kostritzer pilsener glass.
A: Pours a murky copper color, with a large, sexy four-finger off-white head that fades away at a moderate pace.
S: Mostly earthy aromatic hops, but also features a small bready scent, as well.
T: The opening is malty, biscuity, and almost sweet, while it finishes with a decent hit of grassy, floral hops. Flavorful and refreshing, but I imagine it would be better suited to the summer months.
M: Finishes very wet, and has moderately high carbonation overall. Nice smoothness, too.
O: This is pretty damn good, and like many of the well-known craft beers (SN Pale Ale, SA Boston Lager), has a good degree of versatility, as well. On the other hand, it's not my favorite, and truth be told, I think I prefer Flying Dog Old Scratch (if we're staying in the not-too-well represented style of the California Common) overall.
