This was a very sweet yummy beer. Deep amber coloring in the pour, with a great aroma and frothy head. I would have liked it a little more bitter, slightly imbalanced, but overall great to drink.

deep amber color, lasting head, and a predominantly malty flavor. I'd buy it again.

Verne (261) - Enumclaw, Washington, USA - JAN 18, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 7, 2003 An Amber with flavor. Rich malt dominates with out excessive sweetness. The hop aroma is wonderful but not over done, this is a amber not an IPA

Very nice amber. Deep amber in color. Sweet malty nose with a nice off-white head. Starts sweet and stays sweets. Nice hopped finish with a Cascade spiciness. This was very drinkable.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - DEC 18, 2002
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2003 Poored a deep amber red with a good amount of head. Smells of malt! Flavor has lots of caramel and toffee and a sweet aftertaste. Not too bitter. Average amber ale.

Real dark for an amber, decent lace. Loaded with malts, some pleasant sweetness on finish. pretty good stuff, I could drink at least a sixer if i had to get all the same in it.

UPDATED: MAR 8, 2003 (7Mar2003--12oz.bottle--re A bit less impressive under scrutiny. Yes, nice use of specialty hops. Underbittered. A bit thin in the mouth. Heavy, but not overpowering, diacetyl presence. (13Dec2002-bottle) Fairly coarse, non-lacy, not terribly effervescent carbonation. Rich malty aroma, unusually deep red color. Flavor is maltier than bitter, fairly sweet, with pleasantly full, though not 'meaty' body, and the enjoyable finish of aromatic hops. The 6% ABV is hidden surprisingly well. Beer finishes refreshingly clean. Usually better on tap than in bottles--more lively carbonation and I dare say more hop presence. Style points given for breaking with common thinking and adding chocolate malt. Same to Abita Turbo Dog!

This was my favorite on our recent Western excursion - taste like the best hearty, rich grain and nut breads with a pleasant drying hops finish. Absolutely beautiful, too - a deep reddish orange that hints at the earthiness of the brew itself. Yumm!
