Great for a beer that you can find almost anywhere in the NW. Nice amber color, thick, almost syruppy feel to it. A bit too sweet for my liking though.

Can’t picture anyone in Alaska drinking this one but I’m not the biggest altbier fan. p.s. wish I had another Jamaica Red Ale

I think this is the most over-rated beer. Good color but very dry and doesn’t leave a necessarily good taste in your mouth. If you like macro beer you’ll probably like this. Don’t get too excited though.

This tastes just like the golden pale, but with a bit more of a smoked finish. The aftertaste of this one as well as the pale, was horrible. I was expecting much more. I will have to try the stout before I put this brewery out of my sights.

Light copper color. Nicely balanced aroma of malt and fruity hops. Nicely hopped, bitterness carries into the palate. Just a touch of malty sweetness. Nice brew.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Probably my favorite beer. Definately the one I missed when I was outside of the great northwest. Wonderfully malty, comlex. Get flavors, of caramel, toffee, roasted malts, nuts, rich, nice sweetness, with just a hint of hops to finish off. Outstanding beer.

A little too sweet for my liking, though not an awful beer. Nice big head, good color just not a flavor I love, too sweet.

Has everything going for it ’cept MY taste buds. I thought it finished way too sweet. Was barely able to choke down the whole bottle. IMO the Pale is a far better brew.

A real beauty. Has a great coloring, and a pretty good head. Goes down smooth, and is pretty sweet.
