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.

SYNEK Bag: ($24 128oz). This was my fist SYNEK fill. Reddish with off white head. Very malty with some roasty flavors. Medium body, light carbonation (may be me getting used to SYNEK system). Somewhat bitter end. Slightly metallic.

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.

ACHops (1030) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 11, 2015
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.

fiulijn (16924) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 14, 2014
Draught at Mukilteo Lodge
Hazy amber color with compact head. The hopping is quite fruity (aroma), the malt flavor is lean, the final is bitter, with some resins and not enough fruits. Tastes old.
Nice but simple.

kathouse (1371) - Nevada, USA - AUG 13, 2014
Orange with a touch of brown. A little heavy on the malts with moderate bitterness. Hops seem to be a variety of earthy, herbal, and citrus based. Finish is also bitter losing the hop balance in the end.
