3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2004 The aroma is very hoppy and sweet. The color is amber and it has a fine head. The flavor is sweet malty giving way to a slight bitterness. An OK beer - but no as good as I expected.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Copper colored with a fair sized head. Laid back aroma that was a bit spicy and hoppy. Taste also displayed a dry and spicy style that was offset by some good malt backbone. Malt was also apparant in the finish.

Pours a nice brown with a puffy white head. Nose is malt with some hop character and a slightly metallic tinge. The tongue is full of malt and hops and leaves something on the tongue when finishing. Decent beer and worth trying but nothing spectacular.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle from the brewpub. Freshness date of March 27, 2003.
Poured out a dark amber color, some orange highlights. Aromas mostly of malts, with some hops in the background. As it warms up, the hops aromas become more prevalent. Tastes of malts, with a surprizing hops finish to it. Bitter, but not overdone. This beer is in much better condition than any other beer in a bottle I've had from this brewery. More like a Vienna than a pale ale, in my book at least.

Looks decent, sort of a thinnish coppery color. Smells fantastic, burst of fresh hops. Taste, falls a bit short. The hops overwhelm the malt, and are predominately a vegetal flavor, without enough bitterness. A slightly cooked flavor as well. I know this is typical with many Cascade heavy brews, but it just isn't a style that is to my liking. Improved and became more bitter as it warmed to room temperature.
