3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the brewpub. Fruity, sugary aroma, very lightly bready/doughy, with slight apple, cherry and citrus notes, some light toast and brown sugar. Clear garnet color, head and lacing are fine and slight. Flavor profile is really well-balanced, again fruity and lightly sweet, but drying out a bit before the end, and with ample bitterness and citrus flavor from the Cascades, some punch/cider notes, also lightly woody, and with a light-medium amount of bitterness. Mouthfeel is prickly and relatively low in effervescence, body is medium. For an organic red, this is pretty good!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: Amber colored, moderate foamy off-white head, spotty lacing. Grainy nose, quite earthy, some soil, low hop presense. Semi-sweet grainy/earthy malts on the tongue. Yeah, quite grainy and husky. Woah! Not sure if because its Organic, or if its a specific malt, but this thing is very grainy, husky, and earthy. Fades fairly quickly towards the finish, but still smacks you in the face as you start this one off. Moderate body and mouthfeel. Perhaps a little overcooked vegetable like tinge in this one. Not thick enough for an Amber, in my opinion. Hard for me to get over the graininess. Way too many good Amber Ales out there to bother with this one again.

12oz botle. Aroma is floral and mildly earthy hops, with a touch of citrus and caramelly malt. Color is bronze with a small white head,Caramelly with bread crust and an earthy, floral, light citrus flavors. Moderate to full bitterness to style. (60 IBU’s per website).Overall a decent amber, but there seems to be a flavor (think tomatoes) in the beer that I am not too keen on.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft - Poured a ruby red in color with a nice white head. Aroma is medium of lightly roasted malts and, more mildly, of spicy hops. Flavor is malty to begin, but ends up with spicy hops and a fairly long medium bitter finish. Very good and well worth finding again sometime.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Peu de soutien de malt. Une finale amère et alcoolisé très tranchante qui cache tout le reste de cette bière.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Mickey Finn’s Brewpub in Portland, Oregon. This location does not brew their own beer. Pours a brownish amber brew with a thick off-white head that slowly dissolves and leave behind a nice lacing. Aroma is light with some raosted multi-grain malt, flowery/ and piney hops and a touch of toffee. Taste is medium bodied, lightly carbonated with a bitter caramel flavor. Finish is bitter and a flat tart aftertaste.

Aroma was very light,hard to detect any more then a little bit of hop,taste was much better, smooth ,creamy caramel and toffee emphasized taste,touch of hop flavor,more evident hop bitterness in the finish. Taste delivers much more than aroma promises. Great session brew
