Ibrew2or3 (6990) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 30, 2010
On tap at the brewery/brewpub. Pours deep clear copper with off white head. The aroma has lots of caramel type malts (rather then kettle caramelization), some mild roasted malts and I almost get a sense of vanilla in there too. The taste is sweet with caramel malts, a touch of roast and a thicket of sweet crystal malts. The hops are just there but I’m not getting the type though.

Skyview (5242) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUL 2, 2008
On draught at the brewery taproom in Lynnwood, Washington. Pours a clear copper amber brew with a fast dissolving off-white head that quickly dissipates to a film top and white ring. Nice spotty lacing after the dissolve too. Aroma of caramel malt, roasted nuts, some citrus zest and a touch of toffee. Taste is medium bodied, lightly carbonated with flavors of sweet caramel malt, a touch of pineapple, citrus zest and some honey. Finish is semi-sweet, malty with no bitterness. Quite tasty and a solid amber ale.

riversideAK (5625) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - APR 15, 2008
Amber color with a thin ring around the glass. Aroma of light caramel malt. Flavors of grainy caramel malt with a touch of butter. Crisp hop finish. Watery and average.

after4ever (6168) - Brier, Washington, USA - MAY 23, 2007
Draft at the brewpub. Medium amber with gold highlights. Light head of white filmy foam. Spotty lace on the sides. Not a lot going on on the nose but the mid-palate features some good rich caramel notes and there’s a bit of spicy hop in the finish. Nice stuff--you could definitely drink the heck out of this one.

bitbucket (2159) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - JAN 14, 2007
Tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear bright copper with a white ring of foam. Nuts and caramel with a bit of grass and pine in the nose and taste.

JorisPPattyn (7972) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 18, 2006
Draught Foxy-amber; slim rim, yellowish. Greenery nose with parsley, caramel and other coloured malts. Sweet, caramelly taste, just not sticky but close. Ends a bit watery but the main taste keeps on reasonably. Bit buttery - diacetyl! Very little, anyway. Not very well-bodied. So much brewing ’cause so little to do in suburbia? No, actually quite a few of these Big E ales would do very well given a little more character (that is NOT = more hops!)
