Skyview (5209) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUL 17, 2007
Last stop in Portland during ABA Beer Tour 07. On draught at the brewpub pours a semi-clear brownish amber brew (resembling iced tea) with a thin off-white head that quickly dissolves to a fine film. Aroma of multi-grain malt, graoefruit and lemon zest and a touch of pine. Taste is slightly sour, medium bodied and lightly carbonated. Flavors picked up in clude multi-grain malt and pine, but not as over-powering as the Magnum PA. Finish is dry with a lingering bitter aftertaste.

Third beer into my flight here and I’m starting to notice a sameness between all the beer - this is clean, medium dry, crisp, with piney and citric hops - nothing stand out, but clean and quaffable - a light bit of estery notes - not as malt-forward as most alts I have had - decent.

Tap @ Bailey’s Taproom... Poured a clear orange with a beige head. Aroma of floral, earthy tones and malted grains. Seemed almost like a muted pale ale in character. A mild hop bitterness with toasted malts and sweet caramel in the finish.

Draught at brewpub. Somewhat malty Alt but weak overall body and lacking strong malt character.

vyvvy (4000) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUN 22, 2014
On tap at the brewpub - Pours copper / brown with a small off-white head. The aroma has doughy caramel, toast and rich maltiness. It has a medium rich body with very soft carbonation. The flavor starts off with muddied caramel, nuttiness and earthy British yeast. The finish shows the spicy / earthy hops. Nice alt.

patrick767 (3573) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - SEP 24, 2006
Pours amber with a medium head that left some excellent lacing. It has a very good citrus aroma. The flavor has some caramel malts and moderately strong hops that balance well. It closes with a big hops finish. Good stuff.

Aubrey (3433) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - AUG 22, 2004
Bright orange with a creamy head and nice lace. Moderate carbonation; nice and creamy texture. Malts were lightish but tasty, sweet and clean. Aroma was pleasant, with notes of flowers and herbs, and a little citrus. More like an IPA than an alt, but it still tasted good.

BillKismet (3334) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 4, 2010
Hazy orange-amber with modest head. Warming malt nose pricked with citrus hop infusion. Not terribly alt-like hoppy body. More in the style of a hop-centric American Amber / Red Ale. Solid malt backbone with juicy citrus hop infusion. Moderate citrus bitterness.

DYCSoccer17 (3321) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 24, 2010
Half pint on tap at the Lucky Lab Beer Hall in Portland, OR. Fruity, caramelly, malty aroma with some moderate roastiness. Scant hops. Transparent light amber/copper body with an off-yellowish head. Starts a little sweet, before it becomes more metallic towards the middle. Quite roasty in the middle as well. Finishes with some metallic hop character, which is fairly bitter. Pretty nice stuff.

auerbrau (3177) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - APR 20, 2009
Two pints on tap at the brewpub. Nice crisp general malt and hop aroma, leaning Cascade and hop heavy. Snappy - I like this. Pours a rich coppery red, deeper hued with a good lacey off-white head. Flavor is rich and clean. Balanced fresh malt sugars play off a classic west-coast hop bitterness, accented nicely with restrained levels of flavor and aroma. Finishes bright and clean. Real drinkable and rewarding.
