Nitro version served on-tap at the brewery itself. On to the beer:

Muddy orange-brown colored and topped with a very creamy head which forms two finger thick. Retention on top is excellent, as often is the case for nitro infused beers. The aroma is soft with a mix of English and American characteristics. Citric and toffee notes are spotted in the crowd.

Half English, half American. The hops are not shy to show their character relative to the malt. Moderate hoppiness with a little dry powdery sweetness. Citric pine note from the hops. The aftertaste could be softened, a touch more bitter than I like. As the beer warms, the bitterness does drop and the beer is general gains some sweetness. It's a medium bodied beer with a very smooth feel.

Fair beer on its own. As a starter English ale for those looking to jump into that world, I think there's too much American influence to make it an authentic starting point.

Raul up in it and getting the leftovers from yesterday's 4th Anniversary party at Haven in Orange, CA.

Can Raul say wowie to the zowie?! Not only is this done sucker off the hook, it's like Shamu doing a triple lutz. Creamy, cleaner than Beyonce after getting her hair did...

Money. Just money...

On tap @ the source. Served on nitro.

A: Pours a clear darkish orange/light amber under a solid one-inch thick fine bone-white head which linger close to forever and yields splotchy and spotty lace.

N: Grainy, malty, earthy, faint citrus and nutty.

T: Clean grainy, softly hopped, nutty, mellow malts which are not sweet at all, mild caramel and toffee notes.

M: Semi-moderate body and medium nitro assisted carbonation. Finishes creamy, smooth, grainy and nutty.

O: Solid and easy drinking. While just about everyone else is doing the Naughty or a Shower or Tickles, do yourself a style expanding favor and try this.

On nitro tap at The Glendale Tap in Glendale, CA.

Pours a hazy orange with a foamy orange-tan head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, tea, and citrus aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus and tea 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 and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is quite mild but tasty.
