Draught at E-San Thai Restaurant in Portland. Mild caramel nose, with just a tinge of hopping. Copper color. Balanced throughout, with a pleasant minimal caramel character. Medium body. Okay.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. Amber with a white head. The aroma is full of toffee and grass. The flavor is similar with some very dry toffee notes, as well as some cocoa and grass. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Drank a few pints on tap at The Red zone in Ashland and I dug em’ pretty standard amber taste but good and not cheap tasting. It was 102 degrees out so I had to switch to lighter beer after a few.

GABF. Amber pour. Caramel and toffee aromas hit up front followed by a muted citrusy hop presence. Flavor is sweet pale malts, lightly spicy hops, a hint of bready yeast creeps in.

Bottle from Chuck’s.
I’ve been deeply impressed by a number of the Oakshire beers, so I thought this was worth the try despite being rather bored of the style. Reasonably well balanced, crystal malt and balanced if subdued hops, but without a spark that makes one sit up and take note.

Sampled in a bomber. Pours deep amber brown with a Lacey head. Quality brew that is smooth on the palate.

In bottle. Pours a dark golden amber colour with a decent white head. Aroma of yeast, grass, caramel and alcohol. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Just a little thin but quite drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from Made in Oregon. Pours dark copper with a creamy off-white head. Aroma of warm toasted malt. Med body more or less. Flavor is a touch of chocolate, with toast malt and enough hop to taste. Maybe carob rather than chocolate. Finish is fairly dry, and it’s bitter enough for 30 IBUs. Certainly drinkable.

22. Pours a clear very dark brown. Loose tan head. Big sweet malty molasses nose. Creamy medium body with subdued carb. Molasses toast and caramel on the mid palate, along with a bit more tanginess than it really needs. Tangy sweet caramel finish.
