22oz bottle. a bit of hazy in this orange beer with a small white head. nose of sweet white cake and mostly floral hops to me, but there’s some orange/apricot too. malty flavor with vanilla moderate sweetness and mild bittering hop(apricot) finish. medium body with a juicy texture. haven’t seen anything from this brewery for awhile. this one is good!

Draft at the brewpub. Great little session beer. Comes out cloudy and somewhat grainy, color is something of a buttery amber. Yeasty, bready nose. A little bit of doughy-smelling malt in there. Nice medium body with active carb, feels very refreshing right from the start. Very light bready taste all over the mid-palate, with some light nutty and grainy notes for very low-contrast accent. Some herbal hop pops up just for a second near the finish (as well as on the belch). Must’ve been a fresh keg, or this one just has an appeal that’s impossible to describe, because these notes, to me, don’t sound like they describe a very appealing beer. But I’ll definitely be getting this one again.

Nice amber color with thin head. Nice hop aroma with a balance of malt that is really nice.

Taster – Diamond Knot Brewery – Mukilteo, WA
Good color, clarity with good aroma. The beer was rich with flavor and had a nice dry finish this was a ice beer to start with at Diamond Knot. Perfect for a hot day this was a nice lager with great malts and hops.

obguthr (4101) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JAN 6, 2012
Honey and hay nose, with earthy potting soil accents. Cloudy orange amber, medium yellow head. Pronounced dirt flavor within a tart malt base. Walnut finish. Pale and tart for the style, but not boring at all.

Ibrew2or3 (7107) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 3, 2007
On tap at the brewpub. It pours a rich looking clear amber with lasting light tan foam ring. I see nice lacing too. The aroma is light with roasty to sweet malts. The taste starts with light and fresh malts that become increasingly maltier and accented by spice to floral hops. The initial taste is fresh crisp pale malts followed by roasty malts and a bread note with drops of caramel. The hops intercede for a while and fade a bit but add balance into the after taste.

Cybercat (3516) - Georgia, USA - OCT 28, 2011
Strong, malty aroma has a nice and tempting fruity overtone. It pours a slightly hazy coppery amber with a decent off-white head. Malty flavor has a firm hoppy undertone and just a hint of fruit. Smooth, firm-bodied texture has a decent amount of fizz to it. Definitely worth a try.

michaelinwa (612) - Bothell, Washington, USA - SEP 16, 2012
Pours golden color, low head, aroma is light malt. Flavor is crisp clean malt, not sweet not thin. There is some hop bitterness and just a touch of malt complexity in there to keep make this a reasonably satisfying beer. Among lagers, this works for me pretty well, and I would buy it again.

jgb9348 (4859) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Crisp, slightly hazy copper coloured body with a thin, one centimetre tall off-white head with a nice amber glow - very nice looking and perfect for the style. Aroma of pale malt, nice fresh and light (perhaps German) hops with a bit of a lemony freshness and a hint of caramelised sugars at the end. Light-bodied; Sharp metallic malty notes at first with a good dose of light hops in the mix, some lemons and citrus, a bit of caramel and a light grassy and nuttiness to finish it off. Aftertaste shows a good malty kick, but little else, however - it is very muted and doesn’t show any offensive bitterness or alcohol warmth at the end. Overall, a nice beer for the style - light and crisp with the maltiness hitting home first. Good to sample to get a good representation of the style and great if you like this style a lot! I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Total Wine in McLean, Virginia on 07-November-2012 for US$3.99 sampled at home in Washington after returning from Washington State earlier in the day on 12-January-2013.

From a bottle poured a brown color with a small amount of head. Light malty flavor with a quick finish.
