Pretty good beers. The kitchen was closed for remodeling when I was there...didn't even have any bar snacks! And there's no rail on the bar...
Directions: Take Highway 1 south from San Luis Obispo, turn left on Grand. (If you turn right, you'll get Really Wet.) The pub is a couple of blocks along on the left.

      Dark red-amber opaque. Citrusy-orange aroma. Good body...has a fruity candy flavor that I can't place. Slightly astringent - yet - cloying finish.

      Amber, clear, low carbonation, OK head. Some faint caramel aroma. Good caramel flavor and well-balanced bitterness. All beers here have low visible carbonation but tactile carbonation is OK...

      Overall Impression (2½)
      Certainly is gold...low carbonation, good white head. Clean aroma...again. These beers are good, but they could use some late hopping. Bitterness is OK. Malts definitely in background. Still, not a bad beer.

  • Robust Porter

      Overall Impression (2½)
      Dark red, clear. Big head from line overpressure. Grainy aroma, some coffee. Coffee flavor burst fades WAY too quick. OK body, but flavors lag.
