A striking ruby hue and spicy floral nose punctuate the pleasant sweetness of this brew. Crystal malt coalesces with the earthy flavor of Willamette hops. A hauntingly beautiful combination.

From a bottle. Pours a light ruby red, creating a medium-white head. Nice lacing up the glass. Smells of sweet caramel, hops. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 ounce bottle. A truly beautiful beer with small tan head over a clear deep red body. Head leaves the building rapidly. Excellent noble hop aroma for an amber. Love Willamette. Malt aroma is not neglected. Smells almost like a Maris Otter malt. Lots of good caramelly sweetness. Excellent balance in the beer with the sweetness gradually overtaken by the hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium and lively. The bitterness lingers into the aftertaste. I want to take another sip to start the whole trip over again. A very nice American amber.

KoNrRiI (1218) - Århus, DENMARK - MAR 23, 2014
0.355 bottle. Dark ruby color and a small, off-white head. Aroma is rather unusual with a lot of earthy scents, some cheese, wet wood, and barnyard - not especially pleasant but complex and intriguing. Taste is sweet, follows in aroma’s footsteps with earth and cheese though this time malts are the dominant flavor; again points for complexity. Medium body, creamy texture, and soft carbonation. Finish presents the same tangs but somehow blended in a better, more complete manner. Overall the beer is pretty good; it is intricate and well-balanced even if not the most strikingly tasteful.
