Lubiere (10873) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 30, 2011
A copper amber ale with a thin off white head. In aroma, light caramel malt. Inmouth, a nutty malt withburned caramel notes, oily mouthfeel, very roasty, not bad. On tap at PDX Concourse E location, July 31 2011.

Great clarity, colour intensity and head retention on this one, as well as concentric rings of lacing. The aroma is fresh, floral hops, butterscotch, doughy malts, and straightforward light maltiness. An earthier hop presence shines in the flavour along with nutty malt impressions (Munich malt, perhaps), a whisper of cocoa and a hint of old coffee. Straightforward beer style done right. Full-bodied for the style with gentle yet, tingly carbonation and a medium/long palate duration. This is proof that an organic ale can stand up to the rest of ’em. As this is a year-round beer, I must imagine that being organic, the spec on the malts will have slightly more variation in their specs, which might in turn mean the recipe must be tweaked with each brew to compensate, making it a bitch to brew (or not). I give Laurelwood tons of credit for helping lift doubts about beers produced from organic malts. I doubt the hops are organic, but if they are, even more kudos. Goes great with simple pub food and a go to session beer for me when living the dream of the 90’s in Portlandia. This was my favorite amber and still may be. Rate to style, haters!

marcus (7323) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 17, 2011
Pours orange copper with a thick beige head and a fruity aroma. There is a hearty caramel malt flavor with a good bitter hop finish. Taste a bit like an IPA.

Sammer (1079) - Plano, Texas, USA - JUN 29, 2011
Reddish copper pour from bottle with a thin white head. Bread and malt taste, with some light caramel thrown in. Clean tasting and very decent.

scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - MAR 26, 2011
Seems a bit old with the malt on the nose, little floral. Red/amber, small creamy tan head, aptly maintained. Nice amber, dark roasty caramel, bit of astringency in the hops. Sharpness reminds me of an older beer, not at its best.

Hophazard (193) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 17, 2011
Bready nose that transitions to citrus. More of a copper than true red. Flavor starts citrus followed by a dry finish. Surprising lack of malt. Medium body but is filling. Not a bad beer but not truly distinguishable from many pales.
