Bottle pour at Field Of Drafts held at The Hanger in Lancaster, CA.

Pours a clear orange with a foamy bone head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, and subdued hop aromas. Taste is much the same with fruit and herbal hop flavors on the finish. There is a very mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a poor beer that has a more fruity than hoppy aspect.

Pours a clear, copper color. One inch head of an off-tan color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of pine, hops, sweet malt, hint of alcohol, hint of wheat, and slight metallic aroma. Fits the style of an American Pale Ale. Mouth feel is smooth and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of pine, sweet malt, hops, hint of alcohol, and slight metallic flavors. Overall, decent beer with simple characteristics, but the metallic aroma and flavor diminishes the quality.
