Bulk_Carrier (2264) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Reviewed from notes. Bar pour yields no head and had a hazy reddish color with barely any lacing. The smell had a earthy / grassy / herbal / baked caramel bread. Interesting, to say the least. The taste was basically the same. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was somewhat there and was good for the style and to me. Overall, I say it was a decent amber that I might have again.

onceblind (4521) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Clear lightish amber under a thin cap. Nose is a bit more grassy forward than I would imagine with semi bitter earthy nuttiness. Medium palate with a pretty one dimensional flavor profile of light amberish malts and a earthy bitter grassy note.

maxwelldeux (3794) - Everett, Washington, USA - FEB 27, 2014
Draught in a flight at the brewpub. Pours a clear amber color. Nose has some caramel and bread elements in there. Taste ends up being slightly sweet, and heavily laden with bread. OK, but nothing terribly special.

ACHops (757) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 2, 2013
On tap @ Lake City brewpub. Pours dark reddish amber with thick off white head. Aroma is mild caramel malt. Taste is clean light caramel malt with sharply bitter piney aromatic hops. Nice tasty pale, easy drinking.

OldMrCrow (1945) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 14, 2013
Tap at LCW.

Clear amber-orange, pine and some orange peel. Cracker flavors forward, plenty of malt presence pairing with a pleasant yeastiness that is a bit unusual for the style. Nicely balanced citrus/pine hops. It drink pretty good.

Draft @ Elliot Bay. Clear amber small head. Aroma of caramel, citrus, floral and pine. Flavor is sweet caramel malt with a low hop bitterness and very yeasty. Medium to light body. Another overly sweet beer without much hop bitterness.
