On tap. Clear amber color with ivory head. Nutty, toasty aromas with mild caramel, earth. medium body, average carbonation. toasted, nutty malt flavors with some lightly sweet caramel, and earthy dirt--not bad.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rich bronze-amber, nice head with large bubbles held together by a lacey froth. Strongly nut-accented nose, so much so that at first whiff, I would categorize this aspect as more akin to a nut brown ale. Chocolate nut touches arise, but not any hop aroma to speak of. Highly nutty body, that veers toward vegetal and overly tannic at some points. Robustly nutty with a bit of overripe walnut bitterness on the finish. A solid brew that only resembles an amber in appearance, but drinks more like a brown ale.

Sample at Hale’s in Seattle. Hazy amber color with a medium white head that recedes steadily. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of malt, caramel and hops. Light-bodied with flavors of roast malt and grassy hops. The finish is sweet with a bready malt aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

Pint @ Naked City. Tasy bo-basty. And that’s all I have to say about that. Except that I now need to bad the the comments so that my rating will be accepted. It’s an amber. No more, no less.

Draft at ncbc. Pours a dark murky amber, almost crossing over into black. Loose tan suds. Sweet brown bread nose, malty and wet. Toasty bready mid palate, spicy toasty thick brown bread. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Long toasty bready finish. Nice malt showcase.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Darker toasted bread on the nose, a little sweetness, roast and earth. Pours darker amber bordering on more or less brown, tannish head. The flavor is toasty and roasty with nice underlying sweetness followed by earthy floral hops. Standard straightforward amber with a little more body and heft that what most are used to.
