Thanks to ericandersnavy for sharing this can.
The beer pours a nice orange color with a white head. The aroma is sweet malt along with some nice orange citrus hops. The flavor is toffee and bready malt along with some light hop bitterness and orange hop flavor. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A pretty good beer, but it smells better than it tastes.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can. Pours a deep dark copper amber color. Rich in appearance for an amber. Absolutely loved the nose of this beer. It had a lot going on. There was certainly a malt presence with notes of caramel, toffee, and toast, but it was light and pleasant. Hop presence was more earthy than I usually get. Blended in really well. Great presence of dried fruits, raisins, apricots, nuts, trail mix. Soft and subtle at times, but bold in the right areas. Best amber that Iíve had in awhile.

Sample from a can at the "Portland? Psh More Like Beerland" tasting on 03/10/10. This brew is a clear amber-orange color with a thin off-white head that recedes quickly. Stringy lacing on the glass. The aroma is malty and has a moderate hops presence too. Medium body with a roasted malt character and floral hops and citrus flavors. The finish is sweet and malty and lingers a bit. Decent overall.
