Poured on-tap in downtown San Diego at the Columbia Street brewpub. The beer pours an orange-gold color with a light, filmy head. There are citrus and sour notes on the nose. The beer has a light, lackluster flavor, with bits of malt and barley that are balanced, but equally weak. The beer finished like a pale, with an increased sour tone on the aftertaste.
