A totem is an entity that watches over and represents a clan or tribe. Totem pale represents us well with its citrus hop flavor. The Totem Pale is built on a firm foundation of ESB and crystal malts with generous citrus hop additions. We believe that you will also want to make the Black Raven your totem. Available year-round.

On tap @ Stout. Pours dark golden with thin white head. Aroma is lightly sweet caramel malt and light crisp earthy hops. Taste is clean medium caramel malt, earthy and mildly oaky on the finish. Hops are present and citrusy, but quite light. Quite flavorful for a pale.

Draft pour at the brewery. Pours an oily copper color with a lasting head. Grassy hops aroma. Flavor is pretty grassy as well, with some bitter hop finish. Pretty standard pale, but tasty overall. I’ll take this over a lot of competition.

gracefullypunk (667) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 13, 2010
On tap at the brewery. Pours pinky orange with minimal head. Earthy hop aroma with some pine. Taste, after initial pine flavor, is primarily bitter grapefruit peel that lingers and lingers. Not bad but it doesn’t seem like a pale to me.
