3.53/5 rDev +5.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Poured into a Claret...
Appearance-Dark burnt orange body with a white head, about one finger, that dissipates quickly. Leaves some nice lacing.
Smell-I could smell the aroma just sitting here looking at the beer writing the appearance. Bready, Caramel, Sweet, Malty. Very little hop aroma, some floral notes and I guess a little bit of pine.
Taste-The pine really comes through with the taste. Starts off with some caramel, and even some subtle chocolate. Then hit with some fresh pine and finish is pretty bland, but very clean and nice.
Mouthfeel-Pretty moderate carbonation, body is definitely medium. Pretty drinkable.
Overall-Not too bad. Haven't had much to say about Rahr and Sons but this one is okay, just missing some hop bitterness. above average beer.

On tap at the 2014 Firestone Walker Invitational Beer Fest held at the Paso Robles Event Center in Paso Robles, CA.
Pours a hazy dark orange with a foamy khaki 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, caramel, and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest and toast flavors on the finish. There is a 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 pretty good beer that has a nice balance of malt and hop characteristics all around.
Serving type: on-tap
