Draught at The Keg in Lynnwood. Pours a hazy reddish dark amber color with a moderate brown head on there. Nose is malt-forward, with some caramel and breadiness in there. Taste is a bit toasty, yet manages to be quite crisp and pleasant. Not bad at all.

Serving: from tap at Veraci Pizza. Aroma: moderate, pine hop aroma. Appearance: average-sized, creamy, off-white, initial head with good lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Hazy, dark-amber body. Taste: moderately bitter initial flavor and finish with average duration. Palate: medium body with watery texture and lively carbonation. Overall: very good. Not overly bitter.

I’ve had this dozens if times and it’s quite variable. Sometimes it is very hoppy, citrusy and piney, creamy texture and malty sweet. Presumably when it’s fresh. But the about 50% of the tine it tastes like a mediocre amber with stale hops and toasted plastic. When it’s good it’s great and that’s how I choose to remember it.

Prufrockstar (891) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 7, 2013
Draft at college inn. Too dark to see it well, but amberish, dense creamy white head that lasts for a long time. piney floral hops. toast, light sweetess, bitter finish. Low carbonation, long finish, thin texture, stream of consciousness, unobtrusive, just a little caramel, stretching to find more words to mask my inadequate senses, the hell with this I'm going to put away my phone and talk to people. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear amber color with ivory sheen. Nice floral, tropical fruit hoppy aromas. medium body. Floral, tea leaf hoppy flavors with a caramel malt base--nicely bitter finish-good n’ fresh

improvjock (321) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 25, 2012
Tap. Pours a copper red with off-white head that leaves nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel malts. Flavor is sweet an malty up front, with a bitter go bite in the finish. Pretty good, but doesn’t do much to separate itself from the pack.
