on tap at coronado brewing company in san diego

Pours a lightly hazed golden color with a froth of white head. Retains for a bit, leaving some spotty lacing on the glass.

Mild hops and grass in the nose with some lemon peel. Faint citrus and a bit of caramel.

Soft brush of hops with a hint of pine. Bread and cracker-like malt with lemon grass. Fairly subdued overall considering what I usually expect from GF. Finishes a little bitter and dry.

Lighter medium body, slightly higher carbonation, bubbly and crisp on the tongue. This was pretty middle of the road.

Draft at Gourmet Haus Staudt. Hazy golden body topped by a finger of foam that recedes to a collar. Nose is mild, largely herbal and grassy. There's some bready malt beneath the hops. This has a surprisingly mild, borderline bland aroma. The palate is decent, largely herbal with a touch of citrus and grass; presumably from cascade hops. The malt backbone is appropriately light, crisp and bready without lending much sweetness. The finish is mildly bitter and dry. An alright pale, nothing special.
