3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Local 44 in Philly. Fairly fresh. Pours clear red coppy with decent lace. The aroma is fresh spicy biscuit, sweet malt, with pine resin, not very potent. Flavor follows with a bit of candied bitter ginger. Feel is watery, slightly astringent, not particularly lively. Itís nice. Probably super fresh it would standout more like the Workhorse did for me when drank in WA.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
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

Damn this good. I dont why Iíve 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 Bellís Amber.

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!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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 Iíve had and close to an ESB in some respects.

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.

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.
