COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Atlas is Big Time’s most popular beer. Its mixture of pale, crystal, Munich, and light dextrin malts, with just a few pounds of roasted barley, give it a rich, robust malt flavor, and three distinctive Northwestern hop varieties (Chinook, Cascade, and Centennial) impart an aggressive hop character.

19Ei8hty (1170) - Washington, USA - AUG 7, 2008
Has all the makings of a great amber ale but just not enough of it. Grainy, bready caramel cereal malt backbone with just a touch of earth and sweetness. Nice hop profile with light grapefruit and pine essence. Really nice drink - very much like the Mac & Jacks African Amber, just a lighter version.

Copper color with a tight head, nice lacing. Sweet bread aroma with caramel and brown sugar. Super smooth mouthfeel. Nice subtle flavors of caramel with some earthy spices. Very nice cask pulled beer here @ the brewpub.

Bradrcr (806) - Renton, Washington, USA - AUG 4, 2008
7/8/08 On draught at the brewpub. Aroma is rich and caramel malty with almost no hop flora. Appearance is hazy brown with a well maintained cream colored head and good lacing. Flavor is very sweet with lots of sugar and quite low earthy bittering. Mouthfeel is moderate bodied with a medium carb texture. Overall, just too sweet, not enough of either malt or hop character.

on tap-pours a light tan head and hazy amber color. Aroma is medium malt first, then citrus hops. Taste is medium malt, balanced with citrus hops. Easy drinking. Mild carbonation. 3.3 On cask-pours a foamy retaining light tan head and hazy amber color. This is a mild version of it on tap and minimum carbonation.
