On tap at Toronado SD, into a pint

Im gonna do a quick review because im getting to other Cellarmaker brews, but this is just delicious. Possibly the best pale ale ive had. Juicy, in a West Coast way, with citrus and tropical nuances exploding across your palate. Such a flavorful pale for the ABV.

Had on draft in a pint glass. Not much head with mild carbonation. Had a cloudy, yellow appearance with citrus, pineapple and pine aromas. Mild hops along with flavors of lemon, orange and tropical fruit with some of that pine coming through. Tasted better than it looked.

I like almost all of Cellarmakers Pale Ales, IPA's and Double IPA's, but this beer doesn't make the cut. I got nothing on the nose and the taste was bland. Probably the worst Cellarmaker beer I ever had.
