GarrettB (1428) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 18, 2012
June 30th, 2011 - The Elysian Menís Room rounds out Elysian offerings, deviating from the Greek mythology I learned to love during my time in Seattle, and instead decorating their bottle with the kind of wryly strange sign Iíd expect to see in any number of Seattleís quirky bars. As another pale ale in Elysianís line I sort of wonder where it fits, and whether or how the hop profile will set it apart from other brews coming out of Elysian. I believe it does. It begins with a great, consuming and growing head, which has more in common with a Belgian golden ale than it does other APAs, and the lacing runs a beautiful fishnet stocking pattern down the side of the glass. The aroma is generically malty, but chilled and caught behind the head - thereís a clean styrofoam type of aroma, but not likely what the beer actually smells like. A light body greets the palate, casting the classic flavors of an amber around palate, but a nice hop body as well to keep the caramel sugars at bat. It tastes almost like a double IPA with a bit of amber and red, and an insistence on using alcohol and sugar to strengthen the brew. The first sip is better than the last though, as the beer progressively loses its character. I donít know why, but it tastes just a bit plain after that first sip wears off.

Iíve had this beer probably a dozen or so times over the years, purely out of my joint respect for both beer and the Menís Room program. I donít know why I never rated the beer. Seems like every time I have it, it is poured into plastic at some bar that probably never cleans their lines. Today, I find myself enjoying it under unique circumstances. Not only that, I have a hard time listening to the program now, due to the departure of my favorite cast member. If you ever read this Ben, I miss you buddy, and I hope I get the chance to buy you a beer some day to say thanks for all the laughs over the years. Youíve done the program twice as long as Iíve been legally allowed to drink this beer. This beer is memorable for me because when I am drinking it, there is usually an event that surrounds it. Itís usually quite refreshing on the hot days, but it can be rough on other occasions. A biting nutty malt, and it comes off as boozier than it claims to be. Caramely, but a bit papery as well. On a scale of bad to the best, itís yummy. Now that I finally uploaded a long thought out rating though, I might not see myself getting this much more. Alright beer Iíd say.

Aquilo (621) - Berkeley, California, USA - JUL 11, 2016
Thanks to the name of this beer, all I can think of is urinal cake. Anyways, clear amber color with a thin head and lovely lace. Aroma of vegetables and spices. Flavor is dry and mild. Itís OK.

bookman10 (924) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - JUN 24, 2016
Pours a rather hazy Amber-orange with minimal head. Aroma has some citrus, but mainly pine-spruce. Flavor was fairly bitter. Not a lot of citrus-more hoppy. Rather dry finish. On tap at POP bar/restaurant in Seattleís EMP museum.

George999 (371) - Colorado, USA - JUN 17, 2016
From the tap at Buffalo Wild Wings, the pour is burnt orange in color and slightly cloudy with a white head that lingures. The aroma is hops want to say cascade hops, but not completely sure. The taste is malts with hops. Not a lot of distinct flavors I can pick out. The finish is carbonated and thin rather watery. Overall a good hoppy red.

AgentAle (1493) - Alberta, CANADA - MAY 2, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2016 Aroma is tart, clove, citrus and roasted malts. The taste is toasted malts with hints of honey, clove and a slight earthiness. Well balanced overall but not mindblowing. Appearance is a clear amber with a medium frothy head thwt retains very well.

12oz bottle into a tumbler. Pours a slightly cloudy reddish-amber with a light beige head. Nose of caramel malts, tropical fruit,. Slight fruit gum flavour; unappeallingly thin on the palate. Not a whole lot to it. A milquetoast offering; would like to try some others of theirs, though.

(bottle - 22 oz) Copper pour with a thin tan head. Sweet aroma with hints of hops. Very mild. Flavor itself is mild as well. Slightly sweet at the start with a little bit of bitterness coming through at the end.
