Bottle pour at the Protest Bottle Share For LA Beer Week held at Red Carpet Wine in Glendale, CA.
Thanks to charlzm for sharing this one.
Pours a clear gold with a foamy beige head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. No lacing on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, herb, spice, and ginger aromas. Taste is much the same with ginger and spice flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that has an interesting concept but is fairly boring in my opinion.

Served in a snifter at a DFH dinner. From notes. Reviewed 16 January 2012. Paired with beer-braised rabbit with mustard and Pangaea sauce.
A: Cloudy transparent. Very little head by its arrival. Yellow-amber in color.
S: Quite sweet. Sweet tarts and candied ginger.
T: Lots of stuff going on here -- it's sweetish, lightly spiced, and the flavors are not long-lived. Nutty fruit in the middle and a malty/grainy finish. A little bit of Jolly Rancher.
M: I don't like it. Under-carbonated, un-beerlike, and not very good. Bah.
O: Not my favourite beer, but it's definitely enjoyable and/or drinkable. Not recommended, per se, but worth trying. I will not have again.

I just found these notes and, while I doubt there are plans to, I kind of hope they bring it back.
It's a thick pale to medium yellow. A white head has very good retention, just under one finger tall, and it leaves mostly patchy lacing behind.
Big, sweet malts are in the nose. There's lots of fruit and some soft spices, a sort of metallic thing going on too.It's also earthy and there's a bite from something a little spicier along with the soft spices. It's a little strange when the bubble gum notes comes out, and some solvent on the end.
There's a lot going on here. It's sweet, spicy and hoppy, kitchen spices mixing with ginger for more bite, with a good malt base. There's lots of earthiness to go with the sweetness that comes out. it kind of goes back and forth between sweet and dry.
The feel is a little too thick, holding down the crispness, though it is smooth. Something keeps it from creamy, and it tends toward syrupy.
