Clean beer.

harrisoni (15009) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2006
On tap at Pilsener Room and also Laurelwood, Portland. My favourite beer of my 2 week travels of the PNW. I came here with no love of amber ales, and this not only changed my mind, but completely won me over. Copper/amber with lasting beige head. Lovely hop. Good creamy feel in mouth with malts. Nice hop finish. Makes you want to drink more. It was so good, I bought the T shirt. I drank more of this than anything else I tried.

brokensail (12909) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 21, 2014
On tap @ Laurelwood PDX. Amber pour with a white head. Strong citrus zest aromas here. Some nice toasty, bready malt and a touch of caramel. Lots of pine and a slight herbal note, too. Flavor has a nice citric grapefruit bite. Some bitter grass and pine work well with the sweet caramel and toasted malts. Enjoyable.

bhensonb (12310) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 23, 2008
Biscuit aroma backed by a small amount of floral hop. Amber color with a beige head. Near medium body with smooth carbonation. Flavor is light caramel with a balancing amount of bitter. Probably grapefruit hop. Pretty strong flavors. Like an ESB? Probably too much bitter for the style, but that’s a good thing.
