Bomber from Made in Oregon. Pours amber with a frothy white head. Aroma is heavy earthy/spicy. Med body. Flavor is earthy/spicy. There’s some caramel backbone. Finishes hoppy and bitter, tho the bitter does not burn. Good drink.

Bottle... Poured clear amber/orange with a white head. Floral nose with some pine and wood-like tones with light yeast fruitiness. The taste was very similar to the aroma. Mild carbonation, light fruitiness. Peppery-spice, resinous, citrus and big time malts in the finish for a quenching balance.

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - MAY 13, 2011
Tap at 16 Tons during their anniversary week. Beer brewed in honor of Oregon’s newest professional sports team, the Portland Timbers! Hazy orange pour with about an inch of bubbly white foam. Aroma mainly floral and citrus hops with a surprisingly grainy smell as well, but not in an unpleasant way. Tastes grainy and biscuit like with citrus and floral hop backings. Always surprising when an Oregon brewery makes a more malt forward Pale Ale, but this one was decent.

Reid (1905) - Salem, Oregon, USA - AUG 8, 2011
22 oz bottle from the new Freddys in Wilsonville. $3.79 Dep golden/orange ale with a nice thick,bubby off white head. Really nice hoppy aromas from this one smells very fresh citric,spicy and floral. Taste is mildly hoppy and quite sweet.light bitterness bathes the tongue and a fruity finish. Ok on the palate..thin but thats good in a summer beer. Overall a nice simple pale for the summer.

Not a bad pale ale. Got a medium hop bite and loads of light malt notes going on here. The aroma leads you to IPA then the flavor backs off. Good Session beer for a Timbers game.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 23, 2011
Bottle:   Hazy amber, frothy off-white head, nice lacing.   Soft citrusy hop nose.   Smooth yet subtle hoppy start, nice malt backing (more than most Pales).   Finishes quick, not too bright.   Full bodied for sure.   Good mouthfeel, but needs a bit more hop bite, some brightness. &nbps Otherwise a nice chewy Pale Ale.

Fatehunter (1236) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JAN 1, 2013
A half finger of head on a clear, copper body. the aroma is lemon and honey with a wonderful floral scent. The taste is medium bitterness beginning to end and a faint sweetness; comfortable. The mouth is moderate carbonation and medium body. Enjoyable and good.
