I would like to give extra points because it's from Portland and it's organic . Shame I can't rate kbio beer as it's not on the rate beer site as that's my top organic beer I found so far. Peak amber is a little watery that's all it has everything I hoped to find in a west coast amber but in diluted form . It's no rogue river amber but it's organic and it is good .

"Blah. Not sure what tempted me with this one, though I can enjoy a GOOD amber now and then. This wasn’t good, though. Managed to be prickly yet a little flat at the same time, muted floral hops and a small dose of caramel. Pretty boring."

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
An amber body with an off white head that had good retention and nice lace. Sweet caramel malts and corn grain bill. Some bitterness but no real hop presence. There was a subtle nutty quality. Flavor was mildly sweet. Corn was present but not offensive. A delicate bitterness in the finish. Light on the palate.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
35 cl bottle, 2.40€, 4.9%. Bright red/nutty brown color, short offwhite head.
Fresh hoppy and ginger nose.
Fruity aroma with grapefruit, nice roasted malts lingering, caramel leftover.
Taste is tart in the beginning, sweet in the middle and delicately bitter in the finish. Notes of dry cocoa in the finish. Finish is quite dry, somewhat dusty, tart, gently acidic.
Carbonated, fluffy foamy texture, light body. Very good.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance had a light red/brown colored body that leaves a one finger white foamy head that ends up dieing within a half minute. Soft slow moving carbonation is seen rising. No lacing is seen.
The smell had some light nutty, caramel breadiness that lingers and ends up dieing to a bland nothing-ness within a minute (weird, but ok, just something I noticed).
The taste was basically the same except it maintains flavor throughout the entire beer. It leaves a dry aftertaste.
On the palate, it sat at/about a light to medium, I would say it is mostly drinkable, with nothing harsh on the tongue.
Overall, this is a decent amber that I would probably have again. Though its nothing special, probably would have it depending upon what else was served.

Boring like the brown, pale amber pour with a odd yellowish head. The nose is lightly roasted with a hint of toffee and mild citrus hops as well as a note of grass. Mild and sweet flavour with a light bitterness on the finish. Just a bland brew!
