12 oz. can, can-conditioned, my first craft beer that's come in a can, so I'm excited, Beer as Big as the Eastern Sierra is the headline on the can,
A: Pours a nice, light amber, with a thick, white head, which leaves a smattering of bubbles in the glass as the beer is drunk, good retention, though little to no lacing, but that is a minor drawback.
S: Very sweet, sugary, caramel and toffee mostly.
T: This beer has a beautiful, soft toffee flavour that is very appealing. A little bit of brown sugar and gingerbread cookies in there as well.
M: Smooth and light, refreshing for a darker beer, a hint of metal, probably from the can though, is there as well.
D: I thought this beer was very good. A great low alcohol brew, from Mammoth, a simple malt beer that was enjoyable and incredibly drinkable came out of the can, and I was pleasantly surprised.

This pours with an attractive foamy head on the handsome golden amber brew. Smooth and light. I would think this would be a sports bar favorite.
Just enough malt to be able to taste, and a touch of fruity hops with just a suggestion of bitterness. And finally, the smooth carbonation adds to the drinkability. A faint buttery taste with a little mustiness. Just a whiff of grain and a wee tangy note. Maybe some caramel. The flavors are so modest there is not much to like here.
Not much to this stuff but it goes down easy. Current label says ABV is 5.5%. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Bine & Vine in San Diego.

On tap at Field Of Drafts held at The Hanger in Lancaster, CA.
Pours a clear orange with a foamy bone head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, biscuit, and caramel aromas. Taste is much the same with malt and biscuit flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is tasty and smooth.

Got a pitcher of this one. Pours a deep amber color with a frothy head. Retention of the head was fantastic. Nothing too present on the nose. Taste was nice and malty with perhaps a subtle nuttiness to it. I couldn't taste hops, but surreptitiously they were there to balance it out. Mouthfeel was very smooth and creamy. It is definitely the kind of beer you'd want a pitcher of. Share it with a friend! A solid entry for Mammoth, whose beers often leave me looking for the Real McCoy, so to speak.
