Probably is the amber. Medium brown color, medium head. A medium bodied ale. Malts are slightly roasted and somewhat sweet. Medium hopped, slightly spicy. Good balance. Nice flavor. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter. Nice beer

This is a special event brew to celebrate the BikeSummer Festival, which is being held in Portland this year. This sure looks a lot like the Amber, creamy off-white head and amber coloring, with a nice malty nose. Very smooth front to back, and well balanced malt/hop flavor, but perhaps the only thing differing from the Amber is the label.
