Cloudy burnt amber body, hop-driven fluffy milky off-white head. Nose is molasses, toasted malt, raw grain, a bit of floral and citric acid hop notes. Flavor is bread crust, toasted almonds, and some hoppy citrus notes here and there. A medicinal, orange-pith, bitter note unveils itself on the finish, quite off-putting. Body is full and sticky, somewhat mouth-coating.
West coast amber, hoppy take on a generic ale, same thing: sweet malt and some hops. It was pretty good (for the style) except for that awful finishing note, like a bar of soap. Despite that, this could be a good gateway beer for macro drinkers.

I had this beer on draft at a comedy club. I don't usually drink this style of beer, but I thought it was ok. Pretty drinkable. Has a hint of nutty flavor.

A nice maltiness that blends well enough with the hops. There's a nut flavor in the background that brings it up one level. Could use a bit more carbonation, but otherwise good.
