Some citrus taste. Perfect with the tri tip from broken oar.

Chasing Tail has a thick, off-white, creamy head, a hazy, golden appearance, with ascending bubbles and low-level lacing left behind. The aroma is of pungent sourdough, a full, sweet nose of malt, and a touch of citrus. Taste is of those elements, with a mild hop bitterness and a shade of citrus. Mouthfeel is soft and medium, and Chasing Tail finishes dry and highly drinkable.

Tasty enough. Very light mouthfeel; absence of any nose; minimal head, but big lacing layers; mild lemon-rind bite; good, soft, clean sweetness, with a touch of sticky honeycomb and a nice floral finish. Sessionable, and entirely fair airport fare.

Enjoy by date 9/27/15 is clearly marked, though I'd still prefer the actual bottling date.

a: clear gold with an inch thick white head which shrank to thin surface foam and
spotty lacing.

s: none

t: Agreeable sweet bready malt with slight spicey pepper notes and a little hop bitterness.

m: Light to medium, good body, plenty of carbonation tingle.

o: A pleasant summer refresher, highly sessionable.

Clear and classic golden color in the pint glass with an enthusiastic foam. Just a flicker of malt. Faintly pertumey. Don't blink or you'll miss it.

Overall, this is a very light pale brew with a wee taste. It might go down easy on a hot day. From the 12 oz bottle purchased at Emigration Market in Salt Lake.
