A 2001 Silver Medal Winner at the North American Brewers' Association competition. A deep-copper colored medium - bodied ale. Its fresh flavor is smooth and carefully balanced with a nice mellowness and hint of caramel malt balanced by medium hop bitterness. It is an all malt beer that is naturally carbonated. A very drinkable beer all on its own and pairs well with all kinds of foods.

On-tap at a bar in Sedona. Flat appearance. OK taste, thin mouthfeel. Not very exciting at all.

Smells pretty malty, with some bad smelling caramel malts. A prefect example of everything I donít like about this style: lots of funky malts, thin and boring, with untasty caramel (hard to do).

Bottle: Pours an amber color, light head and lacing. Nose of light fruit and malt, some light hops. The flavor is a bit malty, light body and a light toasty finish. Eh, a bit ho-hum, but itís drinkable.

beer decants a slightly hazy orange-tinted amber/red, with a slight pale orange head that dissipates quickly and leaves ok lace. malty nose with fruit over-tones, perhaps of apricot and peach, with underlying notes of toffee. starts with a clean maltiness that isnít really sweet, then dries slightly in the finish, but still some lingering caramel flavor. nicely balanced, easy drinker is quite harmonius on the palate. an understated pleasure.

UPDATED: DEC 27, 2007 Pours amber copper w/ a shallow semi creamy froth. Aroma of malt and biscuits. Medium nectar w/ mellow residual effers. Flavors are soft yet true w/ malted biscuits. Soft bittering on the finish. Overall: A very mellow amber. I liked it.

Bottle from cbkschubert; Thanks Craig! Nose of caramel malts, citrus, and a little bit of banana esters showed. Rusty colored with a tiny beige head; malty caramel flavor with some roastiness.

Bottle poured a clear reddish amber with a small lasting amber head. Aromas of carmel, toffee, nuts and just a hint of citrus. Palate was light bodied and smooth. Flavors of malt, carmel, toffee and a hint of honey with a smooth bittersweet finish.

This brew was one of the 7 Dwarves of the Oak Creek tasting set at their Sedona location. Copper pour under a small khaki head. Malty aroma with a touch of citrus and toffee. Pleasant malty flavor with some vanilla & caramel. Nothing remarkable in the flavor or finish. The views from the window, unfortunately, were better than the beer.

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2007 Re-rates: This thing isnít that sweet, despite lacking any hops. It has a nutty, almost amber lager type twist, pretty crisp, somewhat dry, with a firm malt presence. Original rating: Nothing bad to say about this one, other than the fact that the hops were underplayed. The aroma was of strong caramel, somewhat sweet. The flavor was much the same, although the caramel got to me after a while: too sweet (theme here w/ OC). The mouthfeel wasnít as sticky and the sweetness wasnít really cloying.... just overdone, but drinkable.

12oz bottle and the last of my tour tonight of Oak Creek provided via trade with cbkschubert - Thanks Craig! - Pours amber with a short white head. Aroma of caramel malts and grassy hops. Flavor is caramel, and some frosted flakes. Oddly enough this tastes nutty too. Very similar to the same flavor as the nut brown ale I had earlier. Palate is creamy and medium bodied. A little less roasty than the nut brown but very similar in flavor. Not much hop presence here.
