From bottle. Great aroma of hops and honey, sweet but very distinct. Clear in appearance. Orange, yellow in colour with a thin head. I must say the taste gives an impression of quality to this beer. Tangy orange and malty. Another U.S beer ive tried recently and I am impressed. I would have this again.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours clear copper with a good sized light tan head. Aroma has caramel malt with some butterscotch - rich, sweet and smooth. Medium body with some sharp carbonation. Taste has the caramel / butterscotch from the aroma along with some light spice - very smooth. The finish has some sharp spicy and woody hops - fairly crisp. I think this may have been a bit old with the malt taste, but it was still enjoyable.

Nice strong lager with a finish that hangs around with for a good finish. A lager not for the light beer drinker.

Semi-dark lager with aroma of grapefruit and grain. Taste is grapefruit (probably from cascade hops) and bread spices. Quite lot of acidity wich make your taste buds go yay!

Just bought a book by the founder of the Brooklyn brewery, thought I’d try some of his stuff. This reminds me of Sam Adams Boston Lager- similar copper-roasted color, bright hoppiness, floral character and decidedly American taste. Enjoyed each sip. Nice one.

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2006 Bottle from Tescos, Dingwall. Lovely copper colour - looks extremely appetising. Malty and flavoursome. Nice long lasting hoppy bitterness to finish. This reminds me a lot of Budvar and i probably marginally prefer it to this. Great saazy finish but less smooth and slightly more astringent than the Budvar. This definitely make sme want to taste more of their beers!

12-oz. Thanks, AbusedGoat! Pours ruddy amber with a big moussy platinum blonde head that settles to lace and rocks after one sip. Spicy saaz aromas; I poured this a little warmer than cellar cool and it was not quite a room-filler but definitely an area filler, and it’s showing a very pleasant nose for a lager. Nice earthy, spicy hops on the finish as well as the nose--more complexity on the finish, which lingers with a bit of the bitter. This is really nice, refreshing stuff. It’s only 64F here today, but that’s warmish for Seattle, and this is a solid Indian Summer session beer.

Bottled. Amber color with small head. Citrusy, sweetish, caramelly, raisiny and vinous aroma. Rich taste with citrusy and herbal hops, firm bitterness, dry hop flavor, salty minerals and light caramel. Citrusy dry hop finish. Balanced and satisfying beer.
