SpringsLicker (3170) - Tennessee, USA - APR 26, 2013
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.

ARH (561) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 22, 2014
Tasted in a samer glass filled from a tap. Caramel, bread crust, and light spice notes come through on the nose. The clear, dark, rich amber beer is topped by dense and soapy, off white head. A thick ring and a thin, small film island is retained as an average lace is left on the glass. The taste is a medium sweet and light bitter blend. The sticky, medium-full body has a soft, yet buzzy, carbonation. Bready caramel notes appear in the smooth finish and bread crust lingers in the aftertaste.

boxofrane (2258) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 11, 2014
Bottle from wegmans. Pours hazy reddish brown with a medium sized off white head. The aroma is heavy on caramel, quite malty. The taste is very caramel malt based and overly sweet. Not for me.

jds2008 (20) - Washington, USA - SEP 5, 2014
Amber in color with red twinge, cream colored very fine thick head, smooth medium mouth feel, caramel taste up front followed by hops and malt, medium strength bitter finish. Tasty but a little too bitter finish.

Sarlacc83 (948) - Oregon, USA - AUG 31, 2014
Bottle. A: Brownish red with a circle of creme colored head. Some lacing. N: Biscuit, pine, grapefruit, cracker, leaves. Hint of orange rind. T: Balanced bitterness and sweetness. Clean, but not complicated. M: Medium body, puffy carbonation, a hint of alcohol. O: An old Portland standby that is a good lead in to heavier beers. The balancing act here is still pretty nice, and the beer is still clean and refreshing after all these years.

brokensail (11599) - 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.

hopwine (391) - Bend, Oregon, USA - AUG 11, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2014 Red amber pour, good retention and lace. Spruce and honey bread nose. Flavor is orange marmalade, mild toffee, more honey bread, with mild grapefruit rind/grainy finish. Really well balanced and approachable.

There is a chicken on the label, and with a name like Free Range, I wonder if eggs were used in the brewing process.

Koskela (301) - Marysville, California, USA - JUL 15, 2014
I get a maltieness and a very floral hop aroma from this clearish copper reddish brew with a slight off white head. Carbonation is there as is the maltieness and medium body with a bitterish aftertaste. I also get a slight nutty flavor. Good brew.

bth122 (1296) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 14, 2014
Draft at the pour house. Clear copper color. Floral hops with bread malt and slight caramel. Taste is grains and some caramel malts. Good mouthfeel/texture. Average carbonation. Light bitter finish. A good beer.

DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 14, 2014
Bottle. Pours hazy ruby-copper with 2-finger khaki head. Nose is barley malt, hops, earthy. Tastes of earthy barley, resiny hops, earthy grain, mild fruit. Finishes complex and hoppy. Good balance.
