A very smooth tasting beer with no aftertaste. Very mild for people who do not like a hoppy beer.

Caramel, bread, citrus, pine. Very nice head and retention, great aroma that matches the flavor. It gets even better as it warms up.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
A hazy, reddish-brown pour with a soapy, off-white head. The aroma has some hoppy pine with a caramel backbone. It has a thin, watery texture with average carbonation. The taste is pleasantly bitter with a dry finish.

Pint at Bigelos. A red brown beer that had little head. Complex hops on the nose. I taste rye first and that spicey character stayed. Richer malts with more grassy hops. A bit of bread.

Bottle. Awesome smell.Not too overpowering. Low the red ale color. Taste malty and hoppy. Being born in Milwaukee doesn’t influence this rating at all...

Bottle. Pours clear reddish amber with a small fizzy beige head that dissipates quickly with some lacing. Aroma is caramel, pine, grass. Flavor is about the same, lightly sweet with a light bitter finish. Medium body. Hoppier than many amber ales, which is a good thing IMO.

A good, honest beer. Big PNW hop nose. Dies a little after a while. Lovely dark amber pour. Big creamy head. Lots of caramel, biscuit maltiness with a nice citrus/pine finish. Not bursting with flavour, but very drinkable.

Cloudy red pour with a small head. Nice lacing. Aroma is a little muted and hard to pick up. Some hops in the taste which finishes clean. Grass and pine dominate. Medium body.

Pours a cloudy amber red with a thick head of carmel foam. Nose is hops. Nice and creamy on the palate, the taste is dominated by hops with some roasted malt flavor also evident. Hopheads will love this one. Try it with pita bread and roast beef.
