COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Coppery amber in color and features a mild, malty aroma. The malty flavor is balanced with Willamette hops to add a little "snap" to the flavor and finish of this rich ale.

Bottle to mini snifter. pours dark copper to red with a medium of white head that dies quickly to leave nearly nothing. Aroma is sweet and toffee with a slight crusty and bready note. Taste is a mix of hop bitterness with a sweet toffee and caramel back bone. Finish shows just a tad bit of dry roastiness in the very back of the finish. A very faint smokiness or it could be the light chocolate. I’m rather impressed by this one, considering it is typically a less than exciting style.

beer-yum (751) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 9, 2015
Restrained aroma with cloudy copper colour. Flavour is nicely balanced to start and gently gives way to a light bitter finish. An interesting alternative to the regular pale ale.

Tap at Pelican in Tillamook. Pours clear deep orange with white head. Aroma is caramel, very malt forward... Taste is dirty, a bit thin, low carbonation, medium-bodied. Overall, no good.

Salmoniform (1193) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - NOV 6, 2014
Poured from tap to glass. Golden hue with creamy white head. Aroma is burnt malt, honey, esters, hay. Mouthfeel is ok with a medium body and soft carbonation. Taste is sweet with an astringent following and estery finish. Overall this isn’t that great.

Draft pour at Bambinos. Pours a dark red color with little to no head. Very mellow tasting scotch ale with some nice, calm malt flavors and some spice. A nice, balancing, yet light hop presence to round of the finish. Nice caramel like flavor throughout as well. Kind of a stand out scotch ale for me. Very tasty and drinkable. Good beer here.

Steve_0 (3188) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 8, 2014
On tap at the Tillamook location. Pour is clear amber-orange with a small white head and good lacing. Husky, grainy, light caramelly, doughy and toasty aroma. Taste is doughy, cereal, caramel, brown malty, and bready with a touch of earthiness on the backend. Medium body with soft carbonation. Meh.

maxwelldeux (4098) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - MAY 8, 2014
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear darker amber color with a somewhat thick light tan head on it. Nose is light but malty, with some subtle bread notes in there, and just a bit of leather. Taste is lightly bitter up front, but has just a hint of sweetness to mellow it out.

MrChopin (3575) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 27, 2014
translucent tan, cream ring. Toasty caramel nose, nicely full grain bill. Well rounded grains compliment light dough sweetness front and mid palate, oily and sweet for the finish. Needs less sweetness and more complexity in the grains, less syrup in the body.
