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

2011 vintage.

Pours a murky brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Foamy streaks and dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is sour and tart with some fruity and sugary aromas. Taste is much the same with a slight vinegar and acidic flavor on the finish. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.
