Nice head on this one that quickly disappears. Very dark amber color, lots of malt in the flavor, with some mild hop bite on the aftertaste.

When I was in Oregon everyone was handing me these! Not bad but nothing outstanding. It sure tasted fresh though. Thank you Oregonians!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice ale! Pours garnet-amber with a small off-white head that diminished rapidly. Plenty of aroma, rich malts with a balancing of hops. Prominent hops in the flavor - very assertive. Medium body, moderate carbonation. This is a good, yet unremarkable ale - tasty without being distinctive.

A bit average. Semi-nice color and frangrence. Like many, too much cascade hops for me.

Nothing special. I like ambers but I don't know if I've ever had one that made me say WOW. I don't really know how to explain it. It tastes like a quality well balanced amber.

An excellent micro to drink straight out of the bottle. Unique beer style, much like it's Steam beer neighbor.

This is one of my new favorite beers. Has a nice creamy texture with some fruit flavors. Very full body and leaves nothing to be desired.

Good amount of hops with fruity (orange) and spicy notes. Reminded me of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear dark red appearance with a medium tan head. Hearty, malty aroma, very smooth on the nose. Very even but excited first taste. The carbonation is of the right level, and the flavors are much more hoppy than the aroma. I can't seem to find much of anything missing from this one.

On tap. I must say this is the best Amber Ale I have ever had. Its has a very dark color with an chocolate malt taste. This was very drinkable making you want to have another one soon.
