3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
First off, let me confess I donít have great expectations of this , or any other beer with "Amber" on the label. But, that said, this isnít bad. Clear light copper color, sweet with hints of roasty caramel and wildflowers, not much in the cascade hops but still has a touch of bitterness in the follow. I donít recall having a beer with Willamen hops, that must be the scent I canít quite nail down. Has a slight mineral quality as well.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a clear amber color with a decent head that leaves some lacing. Scent is very heavy with malts as to be expected from the label on the bottle reading "All Malt." Has a really good taste to it that is very well mixed. Very malty but also has some nut hints and sweet caramel. Leaves a good after taste. A very tasty and well made Red Lager.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pretty clear amber,some head,some lacing-sugary decending thick retention.
Kind of a unique aroma, has some fruit and malt and distinct unusual sweet aroma. Maybe german malt/or type of yeast?
Taste is smooth,lightly slick,medium body,stronger carmel malt notes,toffee,mild fruit-not citrus but the ripeish fruit.Some breadiness.Finish has mild citrus/pepper. Somewhat impressed.Not a favorate style but havent tried this style alot either,this is pretty good.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep redish brown pour. Mostly caramel malt and some lightly toasted malt. Flavor is a thin caramel tasting brew with light toasted malt hints and light generic hop finish. Okay, but generic.

Orange-brown lager thatís lighter than it looks. Caramel mostly, minimal hops. A bit burnt in the aftertaste, though not unpleasantly so. Iffy echoes of cheapness persist, though that may be simply memories of inferior lagers coming to the fore.
