Very pretty beer, dark orange color. The aroma was of sweet vegetables, maybe carrots? Also a hint of alcohol. The taste was slightly belgian hints of fruit and a roasted malt finish.

It is a strong amber ale, a bit robust for me. It has a nutty flavor too it, a bit too nutty.

UPDATED: MAY 29, 2003 Dark brown color, pretty dense and still, minimal head formation. Sweet sugary candy like aroma, not much noticeble hop. Lightly carboanted medium to full palate. Nutty, malty, chocolaty flavor, pretty surprisingly full for an amber. Rounds out with a fair amount of dry roasted bitterness. Excellent full bodied, full flavored amber ale.

This poured out to a very dark amber. What a nice aroma! A malty-sweet smell. Nice taste, average in the mouth, but with a smooth finish that gives you some hops, but doesn’t blast you with bitterness. I like it. Thanks to legion242 for sending this my way.

Brewed 20 minutes from my house, so I know this beer like family. A solid beer, with a great flavor. Even people who don’t like beer like this one.

Ruby colored with a creamy head, this beer exudes a heavy malt aroma for an amber. Again, the malting is the predominant mouth feel of the body--lending this amber a scotch-like quality. Overall, very drinkable, but much heavier than one would expect for an amber.

I had a friend bring me one of these from the NW. I was very pleased with this one. Looks great and the taste is complex and pleasing.

UPDATED: MAR 3, 2004 ReRate-well, this used to be my fav beer when i started on this site, but i must admit, it doens't hold up as much as i would have liked it to. The flavors are there, but the body is weak. more like a brown than an amber ale(nuttyness and earthy hops). good toasty malts, but the body is just to thin to be top notch. maybe they changed the formula for this brew when they changed labels.
my fav beer of the pacific northwest by far!!!! great amber ale with a very sweet hop finish that i just love!! I just wish they had it here in Illinois. I drank alot of this while i was at Mt Rainier over the summer working. Claimed to be 'the pacific northwest's best selling amber ale'-i can sure see why
