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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pint can courtesy of BVC. The pour is hazed orange copper, with a firm two inch tan head. The head falls with some splotchy lacing. The beer is visibly un-filtered looking. The aroma is fresh malt grain, light apple fruit sweetness, touch of nut and caramel behind that. The taste is cracker malt, some pleasant grassiness and a bit of a grain harshness to the finish. The finish also has some generic hop bitterness. The finish is dry and earthy, which extenuates the bitterness further. The palate light to medium bodied, un filtered mouth feel, and the dry earthy bitter finish. Easy enough to drink. Thanks for sending this my way, Brandon!
