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.

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

Nutty, earthy, sweet. A perfectly balanced malt with strong hop features. This beer is amazing.

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 hasn’t 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. It’s got nice hop flavor that doesn’t 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.

Flavor all it’s own. Doesn’t imitate anything out there. Loved it, full of flavor.

The lion of the label is bad ass. Kind of a hazy amber hue with an inch of white fluff. Smells and taste lightly bready, yeasty with chill hops to keep it balanced. A really nicely balanced amber, good session machine.

Draught at Kokopelli, Port Angeles
Muddy amber color with creamy head. Light malt aroma and flavor, correct bitterns, mild fruity esters, and soft hop resins in the final.

Super cloudy, unfiltered cider looking pour with nice off white head and lace. Nose is red apple, honey, and sweet bread. Flavor is more apple, pear, honey, floral hops, and a toasted honey whole wheat bread finish. Really really awesome session able and unique amber. Love the balance and strong malt presence/complexity in a lower abv beer.

14oz pint glass served at Von’s 1000 Spirits in Seattle. Surprisingly hoppy amber - pretty good.
