Draught. This was not my favorite McMenamin’s brew. It would be a good seasonal though.

Couple of pints at Thompsons Brewpub,Salem Nice looking darker amber beer with a quater inch thick,creamy off white head. Good malty strong aromas..well strong for a McMs beer. Taste reasonably chewy malts,caramel,chocolate and a good dose of floral hops. Good mouthfeel. Nice amber

On tap. Visited more than one McMenamins and tasted more than one of thier brews. Unfortunately I do not remember the details so I am entering this primarily as a record of having tasted them. Hopefully I will make it back out to a McMenamins again someday and get better notes.

On nitro at Dad Watsons. Hazy orange pour with a nice creamy head. The nose is fruity with light hops and some biscuity malts. Light and fruity with a floral finish. Creamy and smooth.

CaptKirk (175) - Hephzibah, Georgia, USA - OCT 20, 2005
Had on tap with a light orangey color and a coffee that tingles the nose. Very dry in taste. Not what I expected in an amber ale, but a clean finish and is worth a try.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2004
Tap, McMenamins, Eugene, Oregon. Amber, found a bit yeasty. Caramel, salty, dry and grainy, not too exciting, but at least it was dry.

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2005 When i got this glass I thought the waiter was joking that it was an amber, and im still skeptical. Looks like a hefeweizen, orange and cloudy with a small white head. Smelled Fruity, sweet, and hoppy. Tasted like an IPA, started sweet then the hops made it very bitter, kinda lousy amber but a decent IPA taste.
