Tap @ Their Beer Hall... Poured an amber-burnt orange with a white head. Fruity plums and earthy malts on the nose. Mellow, softly carbonated palate. Cocoa malts up front with some spiced hops and a cracker-like grain finish with a touch of sweetness. Very smooth and easy to drink. A good session.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 27, 2008 On tap at the Lucky Labrador in Multnomah Village. Pours amber with a one inch off-white head and good amount of lacings. Aroma of floral hops.
Taste is bitter hops, leather, resinous, some pine and a full malt backing. Medium dry bitter finish. This was a growler fill and about one third of the pour went to waste from the huge amount of foam. Carbonation is moderate. Good Northwest version of an ESB. Nice hops flavors.
Nice drinker. No idea what the abv. would be.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. An amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet malty with ntoes of caramel and hops. The flavor is sweet and very hoppy giving it notes of grass and a very bitter finish. The mouthfeel is dry and the body thin, probably due to low final gravity.
