RATINGS: 5   MEAN: 3.18/5.0   WEIGHTED AVG: 3.07/5   ABV: -
A Northwest style ale, using regionally raised and malted barley and Willamette hops. A kiss of English Goldings hops gives it a cosmopolitan air.

Sham (1844) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 2, 2006
Copper with a small head and no lacing. Rich and malty with toasted and caramel malts in the nose. Some nuts and a touch of bitter hops. The flavor mostly follows suit though bitter hops show a bit more and the malts are a touch softer. Nutty finish with a medium body.

Oakes (15651) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 9, 2005
Bright golden-amber. Huge caramel/brown sugar aroma. Sweet, slightly fruity palate. Heavy emphasis on brown sugar character. Some earthy notes from the yeast. I’m not a fan of the beer per se, but I can see what they’ve getting at.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAY 9, 2005
Sampled draught at the Mill Creek Brewpub in Walla Walla, WA
Bronze color, light head, no lacing. Nose of light PNW hops, sweet husky crystal malts and an earthy body. The flavor is very sweet with a touch of bitterness and lots of herbal hop qualities. Not traditional in any sense but it’s managable. I don’t know if I could drink a whole pint due to the sweetness.

baobubba (454) - Starkville, Mississippi, USA - SEP 16, 2003
Clear amber with a thick fine particle head. Aroma is split between european hops and caramel with a light earthiness and an even lighter bubble gum and roast. Bitterness throughout the semi-dry taste. Lingering bitterness.

KingPinHead (390) - Des Moines, Washington, USA - NOV 13, 2002
Aroma is light and faintly malty-sweet...Color is a hazy copper-amber with a light head and speckled lace...Flavor is a mellow blend of lighty roasted and sweet malts, with compatibly mellow hopping...This has a nice combo of caramel and hop-dryness, which come especially into play in the finish...This has good body and balance...This does not have the most assertive flavor profile, but is well-constructed and quite pleasant.
