Poured from 16oz can into USS Ronald Reagan standard pint glass. Canning date of February 22nd 2017.

L: Dark mahogany, thin light beige head. Mediocre retention. Some nice lacing.

S: Caramel malts, with that cream note.

T: Rich caramel and toffee with a lingering cream aftertaste. Meh.

F: Medium body, crisp.

O: This is not a bad beer but this inst good either.

On Tap at Tasting Room. Cool nano brewery in a small business park outside of the Miramar Air Station in San Diego.

A-Very cloudy brown color. Reminded me of Baileys Irish Cream a little. Nice head with average lacing.

S-Smelled fairly sweet and of malts, very little alcohol or hops came through on the nose.

T-Cold from the tap seemed to mask a bit of the flavor. As it first hits the palate, its hardly distinct but it gets better near the end. Average hop profile.

M-Very smooth beer with a very good medium body. Could enjoy a few of these with a meal.

O-Solid beer overall, although I wish the initial flavors were more distinct. Because they did not really stand out to me, I can't say it was anything more than an average beer. I enjoyed it though, would buy a growler to take home.
