Thanks to 5000 for sending this can my way.
The beer pours an amber color with a large, off-white head. The aroma is fairly straightforward with a lot of biscuit and toffee notes. The flavor is very similar. There is a lot of sweet toffee and caramel, as well as a little bit of bitterness from the grassy hops. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Snappy amber. Honestly, I didnít like it much at first, but after some sips, it began to grow on me. For such an unexciting style, itís actually got some personality that pushes the envelope on the style. Itís snappy with bold elements of dark-toasted bread and bitter citrus (orange rind). Thereís even a nip of smoke or tobacco in the mix as well. Sweet caramel slowly surfaces behind a bold hop bitterness. Solid stuff.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can. Cloudy amber colored in appearance with foamy tan head. In the nose, itís mostly caramel, grapefruit, floral hops and grainy malt notes. The taste starts out with herbal hops and citrus flavors that lead to a biscuit like malt backbone with some brown sugar sweetness around the edges. The body is moderately creamy with heavy carbonation and a mildly bready, bitter finish. The overall flavor is smooth and balanced for the style with a distinct Pacific Northwest hops profile.

Amber in color, clear with a thin head. Rich balance with hops and malts. Easy drinking amber flavor. Hops are rich with citrus and a nice finish. A very good canned brew by a new brewer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can at the brewery. This had quite a bit of flavor for an amber -- Iím used to the style being very middle-of-the-road and bland. This wasnít nearly so "meh." Good balance, full mouthfeel, and an amber I might actually order sometime.
