The Beers of California
Freshess Date: None
A: Orange copper with a good amount of visible carbonation which culminates to a finger of off white foam. The head sticks around for several moments leaving behind ample lace on the glass.
S: Mostly sugar, caramel malt breadiness with notes of earth, leafiness, and lemon zest.
T: Similar to the nose with caramel sweet malts up front. An earthy, herbal bitterness rides the initial sweetness offering balance to the initial sugary onslaught. Puckering lemon and a spicy, almost peppery finish.
M: Smooth and substantial with very active carbonation which really adds to the palate.
O: A unique and refreshing brew with wonderful flavors and high drinkability. A great brew for a sunny day. One of my go to session beers which pairs well with summer BBQ.
