Reviewed from notes. Poured into a pint glass. The body is a nice amber color with a light tan head and some nice lacing on the way down. The nose really brings through some good notes of light bread and caramel. There are some citrus and floral hops there as well. The taste is slightly hoppy with a bit of toast. Nice, but nothing too out of the ordinary. Good body and carbonation; this was a nice bottle and Iím glad I was able to pick one up. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 11-09-2010

Awesome beer, just a great beer. I love red beer, this is a great one! Looks great, smells great, tastes great, 3 really good attributes. Definitely try one of these, the hoppy, citrusy, delicious. A picture is worth 1000 words, but a taste is worth soft spot in the heart. Get u some

I am unfortunate enough to never have this beer ever again, as it is retired. I know I am cheating by rating a beer I havenít had in over 18 months, but I just learned of its retiring. I was waiting till January to get it again and rate it. But since that will never happen, I am forced to rate it based on memory. Good thing itís one of the most unique and memorable beers I ever did have. Anyhow, it pours out a coppery red under a bubbly white head. Aroma is very pleasant, calling mainly upon sweet caramel and toffee notes, with some pine hop whiffs to back it up. Taste is just as delicious. Earthy malt notes are noticeable first, but are soon mellowed into caramel and grassy pine hops. Itís greatly balanced, but bitter at the end, but by no means overpoweringly so. Earthy, toasty, toffee, and hop profiles swirl in the mouth pleasingly well and bring you back for more. It is a true shame they retired this beer. This is one of the 5 or so beers that opened my eyes in the early days of my beer snobbery, and is in fact the first beer I liked that wasnít black or dark brown in color. A masterpiece, and Deschutesí best as far as Iím concerned.

Amber pour with off white head and lace. Aroma of sweet caramel malt. Dry start with a decent bitter finish. A bit of an ashy flavor which is good. Medium bodied with good carbonation. A pretty decent beer.

12 ounce bottle from South Bay Drugs ($1.79). Pours a reddish brown with only a thin layer of beige-ish head. Aroma is on the hoppy side for an "amber" with some sweet fruity notes as well as some sweet caramel. Taste is similarly sweet and hoppy-fruity with some nice caramel-y flavors too. A bit of hop bitterness in the finish to go along with the sweeter notes. Good and very drinkable. (288, 340)

The beer pours a hazy iced tea color with a beige head. The aroma is that of vegetables along with some caramel and bready malts. The flavor is leather, caramel, toffee and biscuit malts. I also get some iced tea flavors in the beer. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
