Bottle. Pours a clear yellow amber color, with a fizzy white head and wet dripping lacing. Some sweet floral notes, grain and distant subdued corn. Sweet malt flavors, some gingerbread, interesting grainy feel. Pretty basic, but tasty and very drinkable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours clear golden / orange with a tan head. The aroma has dry caramel malt, crackers, dough and a hint of butterscotch. Medium body that is a bit slick then there is a lot of carbonation. The flavor starts with dry biscuits with a bit of caramel, some spicy hops and is on the watery side. The finish is like lightly sweetened spiced crackers. Fair.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from John’s Marketplace in Portland OR. Copper amber color with a minimal white head. Nice fruity esters over lightly roasted caramel. Medium body with creamy carbonation. Flavor is apple, a little spice, and a light caramel undertone. Finish is fairly balanced. Gets firmly bitter as consumption continues. Definitely a session ale. Goes down like there’s no end to it, but there is.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
13-Jun-08 (500-ml bottle: Purchased 02-May-08 for $4.99 at Holiday Wine Cellar in Escondido, CA) Clean, light and dry, this is a malty beer with a nutty quality and a lightly bitter finish. While drinking the beer, the grainy backing of the malt is vaguely reminiscent of a pale lager, but the dry toastiness and lightly roasted nuttiness in the forefront and gentle fruitiness in the background give this beer greater depth and pleasant, lasting flavor. Dry, nutty, and slightly fruity nose. Light-medium body with soft carbonation. Golden-amber in color with perfect clarity. Small, off-white head settles to a thin ring. A nice session ale with a flavor profile that won’t distract you from your conversation.
