3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at the brewpub
Dark amber to brown color, with white creamy head. It has a nice aroma of roasted malt and caramel. The caramel flavor is good, with a lean and dryish body; the bitterness level is correct, quit low.
This could easily be sold in Düsseldorf too; well made.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at the Beveridge Place Pub. pours a medium copper, good clarity with a moderately weak head which dissipates fairly quickly. Aroma has notes of pilsner malt, light caramel, and a bit of sulfur, biscuit, and a bit of toast, no distinct hop presence. Taste rings true of an alt bier, somewhat malty, not very sweet, balanced by neutral noble hops. No distinct hop flavor. Finish is fairly decent, albeit a touch of acidic sourness. This is a drinkable alt although it does not display any unique or excellent characteristics.

Pours mahogany with a finger of white head. Smell is fluffy malt, lager yeast. Taste is somewhat like a bock, lager and biscuit. Decent.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at the brewery.
Beautiful amber coloration and lacing that is nothing short of astounding for a 5.0% beer. Complex yeast-driven aroma, powerful flavors that veer only slightly into the territory of fermented fruit. I’d love to try this one side by side with Ulrige.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
draft at the brewery. pours a slightly hazy and deeply burnished dark amber. loose off white head and decent stringy lace. nice rich caramel and brown bread toast nose. creamy medium body with nice soft carb. beautiful caramel, nuts, and toast mid palate with a nice toasty, earthy finish. puts alaskan amber to shame...clean and drinkable, but so much flavor.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Pacific Inn with some fish and chips. Pours a deep golden with a black drip coffee tint to it an a very small off white head. Faint nose, but slight roasty caramel malt with sweet grassy green apple and some earthiness. Bready and yeasty with some tart apple...all really mild though, with some light roastiness and cola. Decent stuff, but not at the top of the list from chuckanut.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Naked City. Lightly sweet toasty aroma, a touch earthy. Some caramel notes too. Pours copper/amber, thin to no head. The flavor is malty up front with sweet toasted bread and caramel, a tad fruity sweetness and an earthy bitterness in the finish. Clean and well done, just unremarkable. I like their lagers better.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear amber with tiny collections of bubbles and a full, off-white, head. Clean, crisp malt and grainy aroma with characteristic hints of would befitting and alt. Flavor is a medium graininess with some sourdough. Medium hoppiness and bitterness with a sourish, dry and woody finish.
