Dang why did Henry’s go to Milwaukee? This is a true Oregon beer ruined by those whom think brewing is just brewing in mass quanitities and taking out the taste. Bring Henry’s back to Oregon.....

This is one of the worst Amber beers I have ever had. You buy this for a fraternity party when you want people to drink something with more "class"....This beer is not worth drinking unless you get it on sale and you have no other choice

From the bottle. Taste too artificial. Very weird taste with nasty after taste. I wouldn’t recommend this brew.

This is a beer you buy when bored. You say to your self "Im from the great North West I made some good money last week I will treat myself." Its ok but get it on sale. Its about one half Alasken amber.But if it was the price of schmidt ice it would be ok. Northwest trail is better.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Clear, red-like amber. Soap-foam froth head with moderate staying power. Smells a lot like the Dark--caramel, sugar, toast/dough. Medium body fades to seltzer. Bitter, unpleasant aftertaste. This is a really popular beer, I don't get why. Ratebeerians and MBC drinkers alike would find the finish of this pretty bad.

Surprisingly i actually like this beer..its the best beer that Weinhards have to offer and its pretty cheap too ,BONUS!
This is a good beer to have around if your having a BBQ and inviting the neighbours..its certainlly better than the macro swill ( its regional) and it was opne of the beers that turned me towards trying micros...so if you see it outside Oregon ..giove it a go..not a bad amber.

UPDATED: OCT 4, 2003 I wasn't too impressed by this beer. Pretty clear and mild. The worst amber ale I've tried thus far.

1.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear dark amber. Aroma is lightly malty (caramel, toasted bread), lightly hoppy (flowers). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter, very unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation, metallic. And here I thought, starting with the Dark, that they actually make drinkable beers. Arrgh, the aftertaste! I just ate a cockroach! A cockroach caked with metal filings and under-refrigerator lint! So bad it almost triggered the gag reflex. Shame on them for giving this a tolerable aroma. It's high time I finally made out a will, if I'm to continue reviewing beers of this nature.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear with a nice ruby glow; decently frothy head, lasting with some lace patterns. Mouthfeel is somewhat creamy up front, becomes watery. Decent amount of roast and toast. Bit of a hop zing follows behind closely. Bitterness seems to build in the aftertaste. Some fruity notes (raspberry & cherry). Not too bad, but not too great either.
