The Beers of California
Freshness Date: None
A: Copper brown in the glass with deep strawberry accents with penetrating light. Half a finger of off white to tan head which dissipates quickly to a faint bed of foam.
S: Pine and flowers with a bready malt sweetness. Overall a simple, but penetrating nose.
T: This is where this brew succeeds. The malt foundation is of brown sugar and caramel breadiness, best noted in the middle of the tongue. Then comes the fresh, bitter hop attack which takes over the palate. The hops have characteristics of earth, flowers, herbs, and pine along with citrus notes cascading to pleasing peppery spice finish.
M: The mouthfeel is slightly thin with a faint chewiness. Classic oily hop linger with moderate carbonation. Minimal coating on the glass.
O: Touted as an aggressively hoped bastardized Scottish style red ale, this brew is highly original, flavorful, and a joy to experience.
