COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The best selling Amber in the Northwest. It’s a great tasting malty sweet beer that has rich amber hue, a full body, and a spicy floral hop finish. This American style amber ale is brewed with: 2-row Pale, Crystal and Chocolate malts and is hopped with Mt. Hood and Cascade hops

Beautiful dark garnet color...it glows! Nice off-white head..thick and creamy. The aroma wa full of citrus, floral, and malty sweet tones. The flavor was pure malt sweetness. The mouthfeel was just right...creamy and thick, yet crisp enough to keep you coming back for another drink. This is one of my new favorite amber ales.

ElGaucho (2225) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - DEC 1, 2002
Moderate, sweet roasted malt aroma, with light bitter notes. Reddish brown with light brown head...not much lace. Head mostly diminishes. Flavor is very well balanced, with moderate malt and hops characteristics evident.

Beautiful dark color but lacking a bit in foam and lace. Nice and malty, this puts a smile on my face for sure. I like to see a Northwest brewery put some malt in their beer to balance out the insanely bitter hops. The flavor does drop off a bit fast though, almost before I can really get a good depiction of the beer. Rather mellow but full of flavor.

Dark brown color with a medium head. Caramel aroma and flavor. Slight hop aroma. Lots of malt in the nose. Light bitterness. Some sweet caramel. Malty. Some slight plum flavors. Medium body. An excellent west coast amber.

UPDATED: JAN 31, 2003 I bought some singles of this from the nearby beer store, they were hidden behind cases of Bud Ice and covered with dust. The owner saw what I picked and gave me a discount, because he said it was old. The label said 'Best before 12-09-00' This is one of the better amber ales I think, a little on the hoppy side, some malt, and ever so slightly tart. Nothing bad about it. My favorite amber ale.

this brew seemed really carbonated to me, alittle to much. I’ll give this brew a: B-

Not excellent but a good every day ale. Not as bitter as Lagunitas but near, fairly good finish. Not as rich in taste as either Sierra Nevada or Lagunias. But Good Ale.

Nothing great but a good session beer with all the right qualities of a good amber. Clean tasting, medium-bodied with a toasty aroma.
