I agree with NeurOde, this is an overated beer. It lacks a hearty ’umph’ to it, and comes off a little thin. It’s color is deceptively dark for a beer with as little charecter - certainly not the roasted flavour I was expecting from the color. I prefer the amber ales from Redhook.

I don’t know much about how these ratings work (like ’Palate’ and stuff). I’m not a beer snob, I just know what I like...and I REALLY like this beer!

Surprised first by the cloudy appearance then found it is unfiltered. And Damn is it good like that! Floral aroma with some spice shining through the clouds of beer. A one of a kind amber.

Mac and jacks amber
Dark brown that has an orangeish hue. Very thick and cloudy, practically no head. Very little scent. Smells kind of like bitters and malt balls. Creamy mouth feel, wet finish. Very creamy malt taste similar to English ales, very mild, smooth and nice. A little filling but very good English style beer.

Viking Spokane, wonderful pour. Almost Guinness like consistency of head. On top of a honey colored brew. First sip hints of coffee, but fresh. Not bitter.

Draft at College Inn. Used to be my regular pint during happy hour meetups whenever there weren’t any stouts or porters on tap. Changes a bit from batch to batch it seems, but this time the aroma was quite bread-heavy with honey in the mix as well. Hazy amber pour with minimal white head. Taste of toast, gran, bread, and some lemon-citrus going on. Moderately sweet, minimal (but non-zero) bitterness. Soft carbonation, medium body, smooth texture. Overall: perfectly pleasant and ubiquitous in the Seattle area.

This is the greatest NW beer, only passed by the Mac N Jack’s IPA. I get nostalgic for this sucker all the time.
