On Tap at Maritime Pacific Seattle. Pours out a amber topped with a small white head. A pretty nice sweet malt along with a little grain. A touch of hops on this one as well.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 31, 2007
12 ounce bottle from 99 Bottles in Federal Way, W!. Pours a heady amber-copper body with a creamy top that starts as bustling and dissipates to a nice rounded lacing head. Nose is slightly sugary with hoppy and malty character, Crisp biting mouth feel that converts quickly to a metallic, cardboard oxidation flavor. Hints of nice breadiness, but as a whole not so qualpable.

From Skyview. Not much here to enjoy. Just a little nut flavor, but also malt, chemicals, and alcohol, strange for a beer with a low abv. Red color. I donít get any wheat and I canít detect any hops, which is OK for the style.

Skyview (5172) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - AUG 22, 2007
Picked up a single 12-oz bottle at Bottleworks in Seattle. Pours a clear orange amber brew with a fast dissolving white head that leaves behind a white ring and some lacing. Aroma of caramel malt, some flowery hops, roasted nuts and a touch of green vegetables. Taste is medium bodied, lightly carbonated with a caramel malt and slight citrus zest flavor. Finish is slightly metalic, semi sweet with a caramel malt aftertaste. A little light for my favorite type of amber ales but still drinkable.

On tap at Jolly Roger (Brewery). Aroma is light, with sweet malt forward and breadlike notes; medium hop aroma. Beer is clear, copper-gold, with a well retained white head. Flavor is slightly hop forward, but with good maltiness, nutty, with some corn-like notes. has medium body, low carbonation texture, and a slightly resiny aftertaste. Overall, fairly good and to style, but the resiny touches and other perceived non-fermentables donít make it very easy drinking.

12oz Bottle - 99 Bottles
A deep redish color brew with a thin head. This was a off brew with some metalic flavoring at the first and the finish was very bitter. A good malty flavor but the hops where too bitter for my taste. Will try another later to see if it gets better.

12-oz. Pours a crystal clear dirty-penny medium amber. Scant white head loitering around on top. Odd nose; kind of thwarted; some bitter nuts in there, some overbaked bread (kind of like biscotti a little). Attack is moderately assertive; medium-light body, palpable but not distinct carb, and forward flavor. Bitter earth, old leaves, fresh cut hardwood, itís a funny mix of dark, dry flavors. Itís satisfying, but itís kind of hard to know what to make of it. This was one of the lesser-rotated go-to beers for me for years, and now I canít even think what I might have said about it 5 or 10 years ago. Probably a good sign that consciously tasting dozens of styles and hundreds of beers forces you to look with fresh taste buds at the old familiars. Iím starting to think this beerís real genius is with rich (but not dairy-heavy) foods, something like beef stew or maybe roasted/grilled game.

Bright red color. Not very assertive flavor, but not bad either. Very smooth maltiness is rounded out by a moderate amount of hops--although I didnít really taste much flavor from the hops other than straight bitter.

Bottle. Pours amber with a nice head and lacing. Aroma is a nutty attic with peach and caramel. Flavor is a sea-worthy malt with a touch of buttery nut. Average mouthfeel. Not bad; solid amber with a nice blending of flavors. Iíll have more.
