harrymel (1448) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 25, 2013
Bottle date unknown - boo! A: Pours a copper ale with excellent clarity and <single finger cream head which dissipates almost immediately. No lacing. S: Grain, bran, alcohol. Hints of resiny hops. Sweet, overly sweet. T: Malt and bitter. Alcohol, sweet cherries. Not very good for the style. M: Medium with lower carb. Creamy feel. Drying. Nice. D: Okay beer. Would never guess it to be a red ale. For some reason, this tastes like cheap mac and cheese. Too bad, my first impressions of this brewery have been quite good. Serving type: bottle 03-11-2011

Zeswaft (1343) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 22, 2013
Damn this good. I dont why I’ve avoided this for so long especially when I love Workhorse. Aroma is biscuity and hoppy. Flavor is smooth and bountiful. Ample grapefruit hops and healthy biscuit malt balance. Medium-light body which makes this a tasty and super sessionable beer without an offensive hop wreck. Reminiscent of Bell’s Amber.

Squizzle (133) - Idaho, USA - DEC 16, 2013
Aroma is beery but this beer is good. I drank a six pack perfectly timed with the right friends over a week of house visitors in Ashland, Oregon and let me tell you it was great!

blipp (5680) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - SEP 21, 2013
Draft. Pours golden amber with a white head. Sweet malts, some fruity hops, and light citric notes. Pretty good.

Nocturne (632) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2013
On tap at Horse Brass, PDX. Dark copper shade with a creamy head. Nicely hoppy in the aroma. Has a really strong malty spine with lots of deep caramel tones. Very solid amber, a bit "cleaner" than some of the others I’ve had and close to an ESB in some respects.

Fatehunter (1092) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JUL 1, 2013
Poured a finger of head on a red body. The aroma is bright citrus and pine. The taste is moderately bitter throughout with a lemony bitter/sweetness to balance it. The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation. It is a nicely hopped up red ale.

maxwelldeux (3070) - Everett, Washington, USA - JUN 20, 2013
Draught in a flight. Pours a clear amber color with some tinges of red in it. Nose is actually a little hoppy with floral elements coming from it. Taste, on the other hand, is slightly sweet and much more malt forward. Quite smooth on the palate, too.

Theydon_Bois (7002) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 10, 2013
Tap at Solera, Parkdale, 24/05/13. Clear golden amber with reddish hues, thin off white head. Nose is pine, bitter orange, hops. Taste comprises hops, orange pith, light grapefruit, grass. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, hop bitterness in the finish. A tasty number.

Dogbrick (7244) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 26, 2013
Sample at the Laurelwood Public House at PDX. The beer is a clear copper color with a medium white head that dissipates quickly. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, caramel and hops. Medium body with flavors of caramel malt, toffee and hops. The finish is sweet with a malty aftertaste. Decent overall.

Fantabox (16) - USA - MAY 19, 2013
Medium copper color. Off-white head. Mild toffee aroma and taste. Nicely laced head. Low ABV, which makes it nice for a higher level session type beer. A favorite. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
