3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: clear dark copper, with a generous, creamy two fingers of tan head and decent lacing. Aroma: caramel, toffee, a bit of brown sugar, and some earthy, mellow hops. Taste: as the aroma indicated, almost exactly. Finish: smooth and slightly slick, with lingering caramel sweetness vying for balance with the hops. Notes: A fine and drinkable beer, if a bit forgettable. If it was a tad maltier, you’d think it was a hoppy Irish Red.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slightly hazy deep red body that throws up a tall off-white head.
Aroma contains sweet malts with a touch of light hops.
The flavor is mostly balanced that drifts towards some dry bitterness as it reaches the finish.
I’ve had better amber ales, but there are no flaws here; just a bit average.

On tap at the PDX location. 6,1%. Pours a dark copper color with a medium white head. A nice nose of caramel and floral hops. The flavor is a big biscuit and caramel malt, some light bitterness and floral hops, smooth and clean. Quite good.

Very nice orangey red color. Hoppy and more like an ipa to me, but very smooth and flavorful

Draught at the Laurelwood NW Public House. Notes from tasting session. Good hopping, longer finish, good body, well-balanced. Beginning to think dark thoughts about Laurelwood until we got to this one.

Draft @ PDX. Rusty amber with a creamy off white head. Aroma of citrus, caramel, pine and lightly fruity. Flavor is sweet caramel malt, bitter hops and some fruity esters. Medium body with a slightly thin mouth feel. This one is ok, nothing special.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Beh che dire. Aroma di luppoli americani (quindi un mix di frutta agrumata e tropicale) con un spolverata di malto tostato nascosto lì da qualche parte. Nel bicchiere si presenta ambrata con poca schiuma e con della "fanghilglia" sul fondo. Al palato si rinnovano le stesse impressioni. Amaro agrumato e una spolverata di malto tostato che conferisce anche quella nota dolciastra. Non male.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep copper color with a light tan head. Nicely balanced, a slight malty toffee-like sweetness that leads to a punchy finish with a good does of hops. Nice and drinkable, though a bit full for a session beer.
