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.

Deep, slightly hazy red-amber color, medium off-white head. Light aroma of caramel malts and some dark fruit. Malty flavor with some bite to it. Decent hop bitterness. Lighter bodied, finish is malty with some dryness. Decent beer, but not "exceptionally balanced".

Perm (151) - Tryon, North Carolina, USA - APR 4, 2008
12 oz bottle in a basic pub glass

Appearance: ruddy, copper brown with plenty of bubbles and a thin-to-near-naught white head. On the dark side of translucent.

Nose: Sweetish caramel roasted malt leads into mild hops.

Taste: Not unpleasant burnt-malt-with-hops sensation. A little on the sweet side but the bitterness comes through at the end. It’s got "session beer" written all over it, if a bit on the strong side at 5.8%

Palate: Spritzy and fun. Pair with food for sure -- it will cut through all kinds of oil and fat and leave you refreshed.

Overall: A great flagship ale from a strong local brewery. Equally satisfying as a session beer and an all-around food companion. Perfect with pizza; try with other Italian fare as well!

Livendadream (148) - New Mexico, USA - JAN 12, 2014
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.

Braincage1 (147) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - AUG 29, 2009
bottle. A nice ruby copper color and a light white head. A weak aroma of sweet malts, hops and metal. Taste is pretty mild but it is balanced and the beer overall is refreshing and good for drinking while grilling.

From the bottle. Pours a caramel brown. Slightly cloudy. Khaki colored head. Moderate carbonation. Aroma is of bread, roasted nuts and caramel. Taste is sweet upfront, balanced with a coffee-bitter hop finish. A pretty well-balanced ale that’s easy to drink.
