Oh my god... I love this beer. Everything about it is great except for the smell of my empty pint glass after I finished drinking it. I could drink hammerhead as water and be a happy man.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft pour pint at the brand new McMenamins Anderson School. This is officially the first beer I’ve ever had at a school. Count it!! Pours a dark cloudy copper (I think.., its dark and in a plastic cup). Sweet caramel malt aroma with a short hop. Sweet matching flavor with a biting bitter finish. I’m very impressed with this place. Less with the beer, but not bad.

On tap @ McMenamins Barley Mill. Hazed amber colored beer with white foam. Just a bunch of cooked grain and toast. Some grass, straw, and burnt toast. Meh. The flavor is mildly bitter and grassy. A lot of bread, toast, and caramel. Odd estery quality. Not really a fan.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2015 "a simplistic but tasty light copper colored american pale ale. pretty by the book as well, but nice enough. refreshing and flavorful, if light and lacking in complexity."
2015 batch pretty dang boring - gotta dock it.
