Caught this one at a visit to San Diego Brewing Company.

A - Clear copper honey. Small head leaves fast. Light cling lace.

S - Sharpish malt.

T - Light bodied malt, with subtle dry hop finish.

M - Light carb, good balance, somewhat metallic notes at finish.

D - Tasty enough to session!

On-tap at SDBC

A: The pour is an orangeish-amber color with a nice white head on it.

S: Pretty light on the aroma, but what is there is definitely buttery. A bit of a grain sweetness and that about wraps up the nose...

T: The butter is present in the flavor as well, along with a slight sourness. Overall, the flavor just seems very watery and bland. Not very flavorful at all.

M: The body is light, thin, watery, etc. The carbonation is moderate, so fizziness can't even help cover up the weak mouthfeel.

D: This is definitely a slamming beer. Not appealing to anyone that's interested in a flavorful beer. I would pass on this one.
