12 oz. brown bottle from Hi-Time. Pours medium to light amber in color with a smallish cream colored head. Not much retention, little lace. Aroma of nutty and figgy malts. Tastes pretty mild with some nuttiness, biscuit, slight hop balance on the end. Medium in body, fairly medium carbonation, like how it isn't overcarbed. Easy drinking, pretty light in flavor to match the low ABV. Decent stuff but I'd like a bit more flavor. Tastes quite like a brown ale actually.

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.
