4.48/5 rDev +16.1%
Serving Type - The classic 12 ounce brown bottle in a shaker pint glass (the bottle looks so cool).
Appearance - A perfect copper color. I wish the beer left a little more lace around the inside of the glass however.
Smell - Good.
Taste - Flavorful. The beer has a slight botanical flavor. The balance between malt and hops is ideal. Very drinkable!
Mouth - Tart yet clean.
Overall - This is the first micro brew I remember being aware of (as a young boy, I watched my father drink one at Fisherman's Wharf). Yes, I'm a little biased. I love this beer.

A little cloudy in color, almost like a hefeweizen, but it settles a few moments after the pour. It has a creamy mouthfeel and is overall refreshing. The head is thick at first but dissipates quickly leaving traces of golden white. Malty with hints of slight hops, an overall enjoyable beer for any occasion.
Has a nice, thick chew but it is very palatable and swallows like a light beer. I was surprised by the refreshing feeling.

Poured from bottle into tulip. Pours a golden brown with slight head that dissipates quick leaving slight white lacing. A bit macro smelling at first but changes to a nice caramel aroma as it warms. Nice caramel malty flavor perfectly balanced with hops. So easy to drink. Its a good brew and obviously the perfect example of the style.
