On-tap at Anaheim Brewery

A: The pour on this beer is a light amber color with a finger of white head.

S: Smells English. Toffee and bread with a light floral hop character. There is very little citrus, just a bit of orange peel, some grass, and light pine. Some toast is also there. A bit bland, however.

T: Slightly sweet with a decent percentage of the flavor consisting of bread. There is a mild hop bitterness as well as some grass and floral notes with a light citrus peel flavor. A touch of caramel sweetness wraps things up.

M: I'd call the body and carbonation both medium.

O: Trapped between and English Pale Ale and an American Pale Ale, but not doing either very well.

Sampled 7/31/2011 at the brewery. Could be either Enlgish or American pale ale. Went with American because of the hopping.

Pours dark orange/red, seems to the be the theme of the day. 1/2" white head, decent lacing and retention. Only complaint is that it's dark, like all the others, for a light colored style.

Aroma is lightly piney and a touch fruity but mostly just malty and kind of generic.

Flavor is moderately bitter, malty, and a touch hoppy. This is the only one of the 5 house beers that has ANY hop flavor, aside from maybe the Red. Essentially a malty (possibly English) pale ale, undertermined yeast, and some American north western hops. Not bad.

Body is, like the rest, a touch lighter than medium. Drinkable, probably second best to the hefe.
