This is my first time trying a brew from Rubicon Brewing, from Sacramento, CA. I like this beer, it's a good Pale Ale, IMO. Nice color, good thick head when poured, good lacing. This brew has a floral and honey aroma when you give it a good long sniff in a glass. Fairly high carbonation. Very drinkable.

On-tap at the Yardhouse. Huh....how did that happen? On to the beer:

This has an orangish copper color with good fommration of the head, leaving a quality dose of lacing around the glass. The nose is fruity, and also offers some crisp hops. To taste, pale malts hit first, then comes a rush of sweet citurs and orange. Good biting action of hops. It's crisp, nearly medium bodied, and is an easy one to drink.

I can dig this. Keep 'em coming Rubicon.

Serving type: on-tap

Poured from the bottle a dark gold color with a massive, thick off-white head. So much sticky lacing left behind.

Aroma of grapefruit and biscuity caramel malts.

The taste matched the aroma. Grapefruit and orange rind along with biscuit and sweet caramel.

Medium bodied and crisp with a moderate carbonation.

I liked this one and not just just for the Monkey Knife name. I had to have it, though. ;)

3.81/5  rDev +7.6%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Amber with a thinnish head and no lacing.

Smells of caramel malt and baked biscuits, slightly sweet.

Taste is lightly resinous, flowery, a little hay and earth, lightly spicy with a pleasant level of hop bitterness. Clean and not sweet. Wet and quenching. Well balanced.

Mouthfeel is medium light, crisp and holds together well.

Overall- it doesn't smell like much, but it's pretty tasty, easy to enjoy.

Off the tap at the brew pub. Thin head with medium straw colored body.
The aroma is great: grapefruit and lemon.
The taste is smooth with a good dose of malt and moderate bitterness.
The texture is crisper with moderate carbonation and medium body.
It's a nice, easy drinking ale and flavorful.
