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.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Well, another day, another beer after having yesterdays flights cancelled. Solid amber beer with a thinly poured light tan head that leaves some speckled lacing. Very appealing smelling first thing in the morning beer. Sweet and soothing caramel base with soft citrus notes, oranges and peach. Tasty! Similar to the aroma with a bit more assertive hop, some rrgf and peaches. Smoothly carbonated and a soft feel that you want to bury you face into. Pounded back in about 7 minutes. Good beer!

Tap. Deep red with a nice off white head lots of lacing. Aroma is sweet caramel and nice nw hop. Flavor is pretty caramelly with light bitterness. Easy drinking beer that almost anyone will enjoy, a great party beer (and one of my wedding beers)

2010-06-26. Crisp red-amber body, modest foamy beige head. 3+ Very interesting aroma, well balanced leafy green hops and mild citrus, mild malt. 7+ Flavour is similar, interesting hop profile, modest green leaf, muddled citrus, mild malt support. 7+ Average palate. Not overly assertive, but flavourful and eminently drinkable. Nice. On Tap at Laurelwood NW Public House, Portland.
