Pomona Queen is Dale Bros. Brewery's flagship beer. It is an American-Style Amber Lager brewed in the style of a California Common Beer, the only beer style to originate from our state. Our unique take on this style strikes a fine balance between malt, hops, and the dryer character of a lager to create an uncommonly drinkable beer that complements a wide variety of food.

Clear and slightly dark gold in color with good lacing and head.

Nice malty and toffee notes with a almost no hops.

Great smooth front end with a grain maltiness with some esters throughout the tasting. Small bitter notes on the end with a very light taste that isn't very complex.
Feel
Smooth and light on the tongue.

Very light in taste this brew gives you a nice session brew.

Look
Pours a golden color with a white head
Smell
A light smell of toffee. No hop bitterness included in the aroma of this beer, smells sweet but more like a sugar, not a malty scent.
Taste
Similar to the smell, in that the buttery character makes it hard to get an handle on anything else. There's a moderate malty sweetness up front, and a grainy finish with a light tea-like hoppy astringency at the end
Feel
smooth, Light
Drinkability
Overall, a very average beer. A slightly sweet, fairly light beer that is easily drinkable , I will try it again

Hints on hoppy-ness and malt, but very subtle. This is an easy-to-drink brew that is available from the brewers by way of growler...
