On-tap at SDBC

A: The pour is a standard golden amber color with a moderate white head on it.

S: The nose is fairly bland; very little aroma other than just a touch of floral hops and a bit of caramel, yeast, and citrus.

T: The flavor is alright, but I don't necessarily get anything "Belgian" out of this beer. Maybe a bit of an ester quality, but otherwise this just seems like sort of a mediocre pale ale. Light bitterness and hop flavor, and some yeast.

M: The body is on the lighter side with a moderate level of carbonation.

D: Not a very good effort from San Diego Brewing Company here. There just really is not anything that makes you want to keep drinking this beer.
