2005 Gold Medal GABF -- A medium bodied west coast style amber ale. This is a aggressively hopped with Perle and Cascade hops, and is held together by its sweet malty center.

Pours a nice amber/brown color. The flavor has too much smokiness to it, which was unexpected based on the description. It just didn’t seem to come together.

(Draught) Pours a deep amber with a medium-sized off-white head. Aroma of florals and caramel. Smokey, earthy flavor. Mildly bitter finish.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 27, 2004
Tap@Capitol City, DC. Malted caramel to start, quite sweet, some brown sugar. Orangey/lychee like hops to finish. tastes a bit odd to me, lots of flavour, but a bit too sweet for me, some bitterness in the end.

Kind of a bummer, as this beer smelled and looked pretty. The malt didn’t seem to match the hops in this one

On tap at downtown D.C. location. Guy sitting next to me said it reminded him of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale - good call. Deep dark, copper appearance with a fluffy white head - good lacing. Pleasant sprucey aroma. Flavor has some grapefruit notes but not tonque numbing. Very well balanced with a thick mouthfeel. Very good brewpub amber.

On tap at the brewpub. Yeah, it's amber. Great nekkid lady logo, but pretty boring otherwise. Unremarkable level of hops and malt. This is probably their best seller as the beer-challenged probably like it.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - MAR 13, 2004
Reddish auburn. Nice nose, very malty, a bit nutty, plenty of caramel. Similar profile in flavor, lots of caramel malts, nice balance of hops at the end. Good palate as well, bit creamy and sticky.

CapFlu (4715) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 11, 2004
(Draught) Copper colour. Highly carbonated. Medium almond head. Nose of caramel hops. Malty with LOTS of hops. Mildly tart finish.

Aurelius (4572) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 28, 2004
Nutty and slightly vegetable pale malt aroma. Woody and dry with only the vaguest sweetness. Little hints of bitter chocolate. Quite a contrast with the Pale Rider, and I don't recommend that you follow one with the other. After your palate adjusts, its rather enjoyable. Medium light body. Could have used some more carbonation.
