Medium-bodied with an appealing amber hue, this is the First Ale of the Republic. Its organic pale, Munich, and crystal malts create a gentle sweet character that is difficult to resist. From organic Hallertauer hops come a zesty flavor and aroma that beautifully balance Organic Amber’s malt profile. The result: Truly delicious ale that salutes organic farmers and all the goodness they bring to our tables.

Eh, it was koay, I suppose, not what I expected from Fish Tale. I find this one to be slightly below average for them, it still had that distinct Fish Tale flavor, but nothing really to write home and rave about.

A restrained aroma. Pours amber brown, nice tan head, carbonation low. Fairly average. Some hops and malt but muted and unflavourful. Not a beer to search for.

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2005 Second bottle 2005. Found the aroma amazing and the beer malty, foamy, dry and very good for the style. First Bottle. Very light head. Copper colour. Sweet malt and light hop aroma. Hoppy flavour but a beer that I found hard to get a handle on. I would like to try it on tap.

Had on tap at the Fishbowl Pub in Olympia. Found this to be subpar for this brewer. Very dissapointed. Nothing exciitng going on - typical light amber color, mild hoppiness, off white head with slight lacing. Tastes a tad bit artificial.

Pours a cloudy light amber color with a very small head. Taste starts sweet changing to an odd apricot flavor and finishing with a lingering dry aftertaste.

When it comes to fishtales i'm an automatic fan this one isn't an exception to that very nice dark amber color,small to no head what so ever.Malty sweet aroma with a small spiciness and a definate hop presence,and a slight hint of fruit as well.Malty taste,mild fruit tones with a strong presence of hops that just leap out at you.there is also a slight sweetness to this brew that fades to hops quickly,leaving you with a slight spicey,citrus,hop after taste.This is a fine brew and well worth trying more then once,but worth having around on a regular basis.

biscuity aroma, standard amber ale appearance, smooth maltiness with a brisk bitter finish

3fourths (8344) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 3, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 4, 2003 Slightly murky amber pour, with medium head. This one looks like it should. Shining copper. Smells of strong hops, tastes of oak and sweet hops with a lightly bitter palate. Light body with soft carbonation. Finish is long and quite sour.
