2010-06-26. Dark red body, with a thin off-white head. 3+ Flavour is pretty sweet and malty, with touches of caramel. Very light bitterness. Sweet malty aroma, caramel notes. Average palate is a touch light for the beer and under carbonated. Simple but enjoyable. On Tap at the brewpub, Portland.

DuffMan (6555) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 15, 2010
Sampled at the SpringBeerFest in Portland. Dark dirty amber, fruity hop aroma. Palate is malt driven, toasty, with peachy hop character. Nice.

boFNjackson (4119) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 30, 2010
Bottle... Poured reddish/amber with a bubbly, white head. Aroma of hops and malts. A tad over carbonated which didn’t support the fruity tones of the ale yeast. Hop bitterness lingered towards the end which was rounded out by a malt sweetness.

BillKismet (3321) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 27, 2010
Red-hued amber with a decent head. Rich malty nose with a dusted quality that leans dismayingly closer to wet shoe. A lightly malty body. Ok for the proletariat, but not up to par for the discriminating boozer.

This was billed as a red when I had it on draft at the brewpub and I would agreee w/ the brewpub. This is a very nice red. Suprised to see the 56% rating.

riversideAK (5595) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - DEC 29, 2008
Toast, toffee, some sweetness. Floral citrus hops in the aroma. Pours reddish amber. Toasty sweet toffee, light yeasty bubblegum, which is interesting to me. Peppery floral hops round out the finish in a medium way. Medium bodied, nice drinking ale.
