2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft at the brewpub.
A: Amber color, off-white head, some lacing.
N: Corn, toffee, almost a clove/coriander combination, and itís all followed by a off-putting spice and floral element that I canít place. (And donít want to.)
T: Sweet and lightly bitter.
M: Light body, slick carbonation, no alcohol.
O: This should be offensive and easy to drink. Instead, itís off, though not as badly as the colchuck. Would definitely take a Full Sail over this 100/100 times.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 22oz. A clear, amber colored beer with a finger-thick light beige head. Caramel, bread and some fruity hints in the aroma, nice, but a bit too straight forward. That goes for the flavor too, where thereís a fine bitterness in addition to the caramel, bread and light tropical fruity hoppiness found tin the aroma. Medium to full body and a nice carbonation level. A bit short finish. Hoped for this to be an amber ale, but itís quite nice anyway. 140531

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma: malt forward of toasty biscuits and dark bread (Munich malty if you are familiar) with a nice dark fruit ester following.
Appearance: deep red with a light beige creamy head that disipates quickly. Little lacing and fine legs.
Flavor: malt forward and similar to aroma. Faint spicy floral hops in the background with a subtle bitterness. Clean lager esters behind it all. Slight alcohol.
Mouthfeel: medium full body, creamy, well carbonated, finishes clean crisp and medium dry with the maltiness lingering
Overall: quite drinkable in quantity. A nice northwest version of a viena lager or dark oktoberfest. If you are looking for a quality craft beer that is different than the ubiquitous ipa, give this a try.
