COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ropewalk is a mellow, malt-driven amber that dances a subtly sweet line. The balance of Crystal malt with a subtle dose of Northwest hops delivers a refreshing ale that makes for a great session beer. Originally brewed to mark our 20th anniversary, Ropewalk – which literally means “a long narrow building where rope is made” – is a tribute to our building’s roots as a rope factory, while also celebrating feats of daring everywhere.

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - OCT 23, 2008
Amber pour with small white head that lingers on and on. Funky aroma and even funkier taste, maybe some fruit and nuts but hard to discern. Very disappointing.

Draught. High fluffy off-white lasting head. Clear amber body. Honey apple pear aroma and flavor with little hops bitterness, low carbonation and a long sweet aftertaste.

Somthing weird in this. Not quite ester, resin, or astringency, not dust or weird hops or whatever, I just don’t like it.

TheCaptain (613) - Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 2, 2008
Bottle - Hazy amber with minimal head. Nothing much on the nose, some pale hops. Slight hops and fizzy body, could be a tinge of pepper. Refreshing but a little empty. Ok.

Aroma: fruity and delicious, vaguely autumnal. Brilliant deep amber pour, with a 1/2 inch foamy head. Clean mouthfeel, good whitewatery level of carbonation with a clean finish. Really nice honeyed malt flavors, jacketed in a crisp hoppy note that lingers into the aftertaste. The first one was a bit jarring, as I was expecting a mellow amber, and instead got this very firm flavor, almost like a pumpkin ale. But if you’re prepped for it, it’s a fun ride.

BiddleBrau (915) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 21, 2008
Amber with slight off-white head with nice lacing. Slight caramel aroma. Caramel sweetness but hop bitterness provides some balance. Slightly astringent aftertaste. Carbonation provides noticible prickly mouthfeel.

Wulfstan (509) - California, USA - JUN 27, 2008
This is pretty good for a so-called "amber ale," a type which I often find to be bland and subdued. It is red amberwith a big tan head steadily shrinking to a thin top and a hint of lace. The aroma is tasty stewed prunes, bread, hints of caramel, leaves, herbs, and wine. The taste is similar, being zesty, herbal/leafy bread, hint of caramel, fruit, pine, and ginger ale. As with many, it is smooth and drnikable, but it is more tasty, complex, and interesting than many of this ilk and quite satisfying, It also goes pretty well with food.

Ungstrup (29019) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 5, 2008
Draft. An amber beer with a slight haze under a thin off-white head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of caramel, while the flavor is sweet malty with caramel being the strongest note, but also lighter notes of fruits and spices.
