I stopped in the Marin Brewing Company in Larkspur, California. I just had to try the Raspberry Trail Ale and although it’s not particularly my style I did enjoy it. It was light and bready with a distinct flavor of raspberry. Then I tried the Altar Boy Belgian style pale ale which tasted like a fruity Belgian ale. I also sampled the Mt Tam Pale Ale which is their flagship and turned out to be a smooth, solid pale ale. And, finally, I tried Earl which is an Imperial IPA. This was rich and heavy, malty and hoppy.
