Consumed 08/19/08 at Westwood Brewing Company. This beer is contract brewed by Firestone Walker exclusively for Westwood Brewing Company.

This is a light, caramel colored beverage with good clarity and no visible active carbonation. There is a nice white creamy head of less than one finger height that lingers until halfway to the bottom of the glass. Lacing is minimal.

Aroma is redolent of green apples (Ethyl hexanoate?), which carries over to the flavor. Beer tastes very "wet", kind of like apple juice. Luckily, a toasted, barely sweet caramel flavor is far more dominant. Still, flavor is off.

Finished a pint without difficulty, though I wouldn't want to drink this again if it always tastes like this. I think the apples are a flaw in this batch (or the lines?) and hopefully do not carry over to other batches.
