From tap at Sutter Buttes Brewing. This was an unfiltered offering. Very nice starting flavor and ends very sharply at the last minute. This is a drinkable beer with a neat twist I think.

Reviewed from extensive notes from re-opening four or five months ago:
Something went completely wrong with the growler fill, it was way too turbid and watery. Taste was weak, watery, not sure what happened. Didn't taste contaminated, just extremely weak. Drank the whole growler and barely felt anything. Everytime I go to Sutter Buttes it's inconsistent. Not sure if I'll go back again. Update as of 2/26/15, still haven't returned.
