On tap at O'Brien's Pub in San Diego, CA.

Pours a murky honey orange with a foamy khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Thin rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, yeast, and spices. Taste is much the same with a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that smells better than it tastes in my opinion.

The Beers of California


On-tap at Father's Office in Culver City

A: Amber with golden highlights topped with a finger of off white foam sporting solid retention and fine lace on the glass.

S: Grainy with some funk and acid along with earth, apple, pear and pineapple. There is also some caramel and breadiness in the back.

T: There again is grain and some yeast and ester qualities of green apple, banana, pear and pineapple. The bready and caramel sweetness is there and the finish is warm with a hint of clove. There are also subtleties of funk, balsamic acid, and leather which adds complexity and interest to the palate. The alcohol is faint adding a dry warmth to the finish.

M: Crisp and substantial feel with nice linger and carbonation. The beer sticks to the glass and leaves a phenomenal amount of lace.

O: Belgiany, bright and crisp with subtle layers which add complexity. A very refreshing brew and another well crafted and interesting -tion edition ale from RR.
