On-tap at the brewpub in Santa Rosa.

Pours a clear yellow colour, very light-bodied, with a fine mild head of white. It looks really light overall, leaving no lace, but forming tight and fine carbonation, especially when tilted. Looks good.

Not much on the aroma. There's some mild grain notes and a touch of phenolics, but it's very light overall. Not unpleasant, just... mild.

The palate is better: light entry with decent grain notes, before a smoother sweetness on the mid-palate, balanced with a husky, coarser grain character. Bitterness comes through on the back, but the finish is spectacularly clean, meaning it ends up feeling really light and drinkable.

Light but very clear feel all over.

It's dull, but very solid. I guess Russian River can't be all oak-aged Wilds and hopped-up Insanity.
