Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: rhoadsrage on 04-16-2009

This unique lager balances a rich caramel malt flavor with a smooth hop finish that keeps the palate crisp. Reddish-amber in color, this is a very complex California Common style beer with a great malt/hop balance.

Love this beer! Bready, great malty smell, large malt taste with just the right amount of hops to balance it perfectly. Love this beer...it's the perfect starting point for a night of great beers.
They got it just right if you love a complex lager.
By the way, the brewer and owner are very hospitable.

Pours a rich amber color, excellent clarity, thin white head. Aroma comes across with sweetness and cereal notes. Bread-like taste, slightly fruity flavor blending in well with the overall bitterness. Light bodied, clean and dry finish.

This beer is a decent malt-forward lager, malt and grain flavors predominant. Nothing exceptional, but another easy drinking thirst quencher.

12 ounce bottle served in a goblet, beer is a gusher so beware. Beer is brown and mostly clear with a big off white head of small bubbles, some lacing, moderate carbonation, low retention.

Aroma is caramel and yeast, smells nice.

Beer is medium in body, creamy and has a nice finish on it, mildly bitter not grainy at all. A fine steam beer / lager. The munich malt comes through nicely and the finish is good. I'd have it again probably.
