Strawberry blond with a feint head. Mild, honeyed nose decorated with a light graininess. The body was characterized by a mild graininess and a muted hop quality. An inoffensive golden ale.

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - DEC 10, 2009
Sampler tray at Pizza Company. Poured a light yellow-orange with a moderate eggshell white head. Aroma a decent mixture of crystal malt and piney hops. Flavor was also hefty crystal malt and pine hops, but it comes out a little more messy and muddled than one would hope. Nice than it’s hoppier than most of this style, but it still didn’t work for me.

On tap at the Portland airport. Dull gold in color. Aroma of fruit, bread and sweet malt. Not much hop presence in the noise. Flavor was the same with some minerally elements and a bit of earthy and citrus hops. Ok.

jimbowood (1036) - Freeport, Georgia, USA - FEB 27, 2009
Tap at the NW brewpub. This was the first beer I drank in PDX, so I know it wasn’t palate fatigue. This beer was actually quite nice, full flavored, and drinkable. A PDX version of Bud I guess.
