Aquilo (533) - Berkeley, California, USA - AUG 7, 2013
Clear brown with a thick head. Rye bread aroma. Flavor is very mild. This is a good, clean tasting ale, but nothing to write home about.

Sammer (1025) - Plano, Texas, USA - MAY 21, 2013
Bottle. Taste is rye, bitter lemon peel, grain and some hops. Low abv makes for an easy drinking beer.

On tap at Seattle. Disappointing Amber Ale... Boring taste and faint aroma

Golden orange in color... Aroma and flavr of caramel malts, faint notes of light hops on the palate... Nothing remarkable ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not a bad amber. Its hard for an amber, I think, to really differentiate itself, especially when compared to other styles. This one isnít mind blowing, buts a solid outing. Caramel, some grass and floral notes, and a bready. toffee flavor.

DubC5000 (304) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 26, 2012
Amber in color, with a hoppy, honeyed aroma, and biscuity, yet watery flavor.

pdx77 (1193) - Oregon, USA - DEC 1, 2012
On draught at Portland City Grill. Definitive NW amber ale. Smooth malt flavor and not-too-strong hop aftertaste.

trujahwarrior (504) - Monroe, Washington, USA - NOV 22, 2012
Pours an amber color with a thick white head that leaves good lacing. Smells of citrus, floral and caramel. Tastes of caramel and light malt and is a little hoppier than most amber ales. Mouthfeel is creamy with great carbonation. Overall this is a pretty good amber ale for the price.

raradel (334) - Atlanti Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 17, 2012
Really light for a red ale, hoppy and lightly fruited, zero nose but smooth. Get a pitcher of this in Portland, other than that donít waste your time.

Light aroma, not distinctive. Cloudy brown appearance. Watery hops taste, but goes does easy.
