Dark amber color with big fluffy white head. Scents of sweet caramel and fruit. This is an easy drinking beer, light bodied but with lot's of caramel and malt flavors. A slight tingle of hops in the finish. I'll have another.

Big bountiful white head with an alluring red-copper color. Citrusy aroma. Balanced very well between the sweetness and spicy flavor. Beer flows well from start to the mild hop finnish Nice and refreshing.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 1, 2004
Pours a dark copper with a small, white head that leaves behind little lacing. Big hop character in the nose, mostly sweet citrus, and some small malts. A slight alcohol presence is detectable as well. Flavors starts out with tangy fruits, then a bit woody with malts smoothing it out till the bitter hop end. Nice and tangy palate that is slightly spicy. Not a bad amber at all.

Brodie (540) - Blowing Rock, North Carolina, USA - FEB 1, 2004
Pleasant fruity and piney hop aroma. Brilliant clear copper color, thin off-white head. Flavor is a smooth blend of spicy hops and caramel malt. Even balance, with a slight hop bitterness lingering in the finish. Refreshing, well-balanced amber ale, good session beer.

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2004 Bottle: A dark amber brew that proves to be a bit malty, a bit hoppy, and a bit chewy. On first sip you are greeted with a mild piney sweetness & slight hoppiness. The hoppy sweetness tangles with your tounge, then paints your mouth with its piney/maltiness during the long finish. A very good amber ale. Cool new label as well!

Awesome amber, really hoppy and a nice red color. Reminds me of Rogue's Red.

This is my new favorite beer! Deschutes brewery just changed all of their labels, but the quality of the ale is as good as last year's beer. It is beautiful dark red, with a rich malty after-taste. Yet it is light enough to enjoy more than one with dinner. Or lunch. I have only had it in bottles, but appriciated it so much that I went to the brewery to try Cinder Cone on tap, but they didn't have it in October (since it is a winter beer) but they may have it now. This is an awsome beer from an awesome brewery - I highly reccomend it.

Pretty red color, nice head, and fine lacing. I tried this beer because it was new, then kept buying it because it was delicious. This beer invites more and more drinking (is that good?). At once rich and complex, yet quite crisp and refreshing in its hops and slight biterness. I'll have another.

I had this on tap at the local brew festival--'03. The Cindercone was the talk of the show. Red amber with a decent head--small, fine bubbles that left quantities of lace behind. The taste is hard to describe--it's very different from almost anything I've had. Rich malt body with complex sweetness, but a massive hop presence that just makes your taste buds tingle. It's a very bold beer, and not for everyone, but that said. This was my favorite domestic beer of 2003--It's impressive
