4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Enjoyed many a pint of this one at a number of places in Seattle, and particularly enjoy this one on draught at the African Lounge, which is an outlet for Mac and Jack beers at SETAC. This beer is a fantastic example of amber ale, with lots of great hop aromas, flavor, and bitterness, paired with really great sweet and caramel malt flavor. This beer pour to a hazy, deep amber color, with a creamy white head, and a good bit of carbonation. The nose is outstanding, with lots of big, fragrant, lemon/grapefruit hop aromas. The palate is firm, with some really good pale, sweet, and caramel malt flavors, paired with a nice fruity back drop of tangy, citrus hop flavor. This beer finishes with more really good sweet and caramel malt up front, then ends with a very pleasing, lemon/grapefruit hop bitterness that lingers. An excellent pint of beer, one that must be tried when ever you visit the Seattle, WA area.

Drinks best when the Keg is fresh, It is a one hit wonder as none of the other beers at the brewery are even palatable at all. This beet is awesome and it perfectly balanced.

"i gotta say...iím a bit surprised by all the 4+ ratings for this one. I had it last night with the in-laws and none of use were too impressed. cloudy amber beer, nutty biscuity malt, little sweetness, and hops that provided bitterness and little else. I canít say it wasnít flavorful, but the flavor and the aroma were a miss for all 3 of us. nothing special IMHO."

Drank at the Final Point while I was at Survival Training. July - August 2013 -- This is a solid hoppy red that I would drink over and over again. Very delicious.

Really smooth and refreshing. Full of flavor, but not even a little bitter, leaving a pleasant, highly drinkable beer! I love it!

Beer was ok. I had it at red robin. Not the best. Had to try it because I was thirsty. Not a great selection at red robin.

Draft pour. This was probably the first beer I ever had on draft, and now almost 4 years later, it still hasnít gotten old. One of the few crafts in the Seattle area that you can find just about anywhere. Overall this beer is unique in many ways. Very different nutty flavor and aroma. Well balanced beer. Itís got nice hop flavor that doesnít overpower. In a way I owe this beer to introducing me to the craft beer world. For that, I give my thanks. Love this beer. Oldie but a goodie for me.
