Draft at the Tap House at the brewery. Pours a reddish brown with a thin off white head. Malty aroma alogn with some hops, sugar and caramel. Pretty distinct taste for this brew. I liked it. Lots of malt, hops, caramel and bitterness. Not a bad way to spend a Saturday afternoon - trying the pretty solid selections of a fairly new local brewery.

Tap. Good beer here. Best of the bunch Iíve tried so far. The description pretty much nails it. A malty beer with hint of those awesome cascade hops.

This pours a red amber with a moderate white head. It has a slightly sweet smell to it, which was a bit unexpected. The taste on it is a bit hoppy. with a hint of roasted flavors.

This is a fine beer, but nothing special. Low hop profile. Malty but with an extra molasses-like sweetness that surprised.

Had this version with the "Hop Infusor". Amber pour with decent white head. Aroma was very hoppy, almost IPA like, probably the result of the Infusor. Hoppy flavor with hint of bitterness at end yet drinkable.

Can at the bar of soap. Pours red with an inch of white foam. Lots of sweet malt on the nose. Maybe a hint of hop floralness on the finish but it goes down smooth with more than a few hop notes. Solid for style.

22oz Bottle. The pour was a lightly cloudy medium copper with an average (1-2 finger) light beige rocky head that receded very slowly, down to a moderate film with a medium collar and had excellent sheets of lacing.
The aroma was of a toasted bread malt, light grassy hops and an earthy yeast with notes of caramel, toffee and a mild spiciness.
The taste was lightly sweet and extremely malty with a hint of caramel which was present throughout, with the finish having a decent hoppy bitterness, a touch of spice and a chewy bready ending. The flavor lasted an average time proceeding the swallow, with the hoppy malty taste fading slowly off the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was just past light in body with a watery and slightly dry texture and a carbonation that was just below medium.
Overall I found this brew to have a nice balance of flavors. It possessed a good malt backbone, a light caramel sweetness and a delicious hoppy bitterness, which worked so well together that you could not help but enjoy it... www.facebook.com/KAJIIsBeerReviews
