Clear, reddish-amber beer. Thin, white head. Nice hoppy cascade aroma. A bit of earthy malts, light caramel. Well-balanced, although there is a touch of diacetyl in here. Decent flavour, but could be better.

On Tap @ Rogue Bones & Brew Fest in Portland: This was a beautiful red brown color that was somewhat clear with nice semi-sticky lacing. It had a FULL body and a great bitter aftertaste. Very nice.

(Draft: Laurelwood Public House in Portland, OR) I feel like Iím writing the same notes for every beer Iím trying at this place. They all seem like variations of each other. Here, the signature grainy maltiness is fairly prominent with this beer too, but as the beers get darker, the caramely and roasty malts seems to slowly increase. This is moderately sweet, and seems quite bitter toward the finish, more bitter than their pale ale, and the grapefruit flavored hops is easily able to balance the beer in the end. The nose is grainy, spicy and slightly roasty. Golden in color. Off-white head settles to a thin layer, leaving a wide ring at the top of the glass. Nothing is distinctive yet, and Iím getting bored. Some variety, please!

Tap. Clear reddish-amber in color. Nice creamy, off-white head is long lived and leaves fantastic lacing. Aroma is Caramel malt with maybe some crystal thrown in. Soft citrus hop aroma. Medium bodied. Nicely malty up front with a nice citric bitterness in the finish. Well done.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 11, 2005
Amber colour with a small head.Tasted more like an ESB due to the bitterness from the cascade hops. Nice caramel malt aroma and flavour but the hops seemed to dominate.

Served from a Randall packed with Horizon hops at the KLCC fest in Eugene. Light amber color with a thin white head. Fresh hoppy aroma some grape fruit and peach. Fresh hop flavor touches of grass, some citrus. Nicely blanced, light sweet and toasty malt backing up the hops. Pretty good.

This beer was a pleasant surprise. When I see a red or amber ale, the first thing that comes to mind is a generic, bland, ale. This was a good beer. Nice and malty w/ a dry finish.
