Draft. Poured a nice deep amber red body with thin head. Aroma is sweet caramel, hops. Flavor is a light sweet malty body, caramel and light lemony citrus. This was a great sipper and a very smooth body to it. One of the best Amber’s I have ever had.

Pours a very cloudy amber. Flavor is evenly balanced. Nice level of malts with almost a caramel covered apple tone to the flavor. Feel has a full carbonation and a good liquid bodt as well. This is very easy to drink and I could easily have gone for more.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at brewpub 2/1/07. Clear reddish copper with a smallish fizzy and foamy head. Some light sticky lacing. Aroma is sweet and malty with a slight graininess and maybe a touch of diacetyl. Flavor is slightly sweet with a moderate bitterness on the finish. A little of the diacetyl presents itself here as well, but it kinda works with this beer. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a slightly creamy texture and moderate soft carbonation. I can’t really knock this too much for the little bit of diacetyl, cause I actually enjoyed it for a change.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at the brewpub, July 2006. An unclear orange-red beer with no head. The aroma is very light with notes of berries. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of berries, toffee, and hints of alcohol, before the abundant use of bitter hops gives it a long lasting bitter finish with a note of citrus (my guess is Chinook).
