Tasted first beer on 3/8/12
Very cloudy. Great aroma. Very good taste for such a green beer. Smells and tastes a bit like Sierra Nevada Pale Ale.

Full batch served at my aunt's surprise 60th Birthday Party on 3/31/12
Turned out great. People went through my batch much quicker than any of the store-bought beer on hand, and a bunch of people came back for seconds, thirds and fourths.
