COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A deep amber colored American ale, featuring a rich malty body. Cascade and Willamette hops add a complex hop flavor and aroma. This ale is exceptionally balanced between malty sweetness and delicate hop bitterness.

Pours deep amber with frothy tan head. Nose is malty with a subtle smokiness and hop notes. Flavor is dry and malty, a faint hop btterness follows it up. Good, but a little drab.

On the pour, brown color, redish hue, a 3/4 inch light brown head. Initial tastes is good- hoppy, mild bitterness and a very smokey nose. Decent balance of bitterness and hoppy sweetness. Hints of citrus and wood. Interesting, it starts like a brown ale but finishes almost like a stout, as if itís some sort of hybrid ale. Donít really care for the aftertaste- a mix of bitter wood and stale hoppy notes. It doesnít ruin the beer, but it doesnít make it better either. Overall, pretty good start, interesting but disappointing finish, pretty refreshing. For me, very unique..

Btl pours clear reddish amber color. Thick,creamy off white head that lingers for a while, leaves minimal lace on glass. Smells grain,sweet cereal, a very faint toasted bread aroma and floral hops. Tastes of lightly sweet caramel malt,a faint breadiness (fresh baked) and floral hops. Light to medium body, smooth texture, lively carbonation and dry and smooth bitter finish. Good amber, nice maltiness, balanced taste, easy to drink.

Bottle, this is my "east coast fat tire". A great brew, pours dark red with a soapy off white head. I love the hop after taste of this beer. Itís just right for my palate.

Light coffee odor, sweet nutty taste, mild but good hops, finishes quickly with a light bitter aftertaste. Good palate, slick. Not much head, but a nice reddish color. A good six-pack beer, Iíd say.
