2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(bottle) I'm rating this 2.9 though I think I could call this a definition of a 3.0 beer. It's better than average, nice to drink, but... its just that. It's above average, fine to drink. Nothing special.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice amber ale, very malty and sweet, cloying. Thick and rich, nice bitter hops but not too strong. A little on the heavy side for an amber ale, but a wonderful brew nonetheless.

Thanks to Gregory for this one. Found this to be a typical West coast beer. Nice solid mix of malt and west coast hops. Good solid beer.

Pours very deep amber with creamy off-white head. Smells of malt, some caramel, and cascades. Nice nutty malt with a noticeable amount of cascade flavor in the finish. Very malty without being too sweet, and the hop balance is done quite nicely.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep amber red color with a long lasting medium sized head and a transparent hue. The flavor is sweet and slightly nutty. The maltiness is appropriate for a solid amber ale with a nice balance of hops on the finish. It has medium carbonation and a full body. A nice amber easy to appreciate a few at a time.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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
