2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draft at The Upstage, PT. Pours a dark amber with a bit of tannish froth atop. Much as it pains me to knock the smaller operators of the brewing world, this is a vacant beer and there’s no way round that fact. Big bready nose with nothing else to say, and a flimsy little body with perfectly forgettable carb--not flat, not bubbly. The attack, mid-palate, and finish are all startlingly neutral. Amazingly watery for, presumably, having so many more calories than a megalager.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Brouwers. Dark amber color with a nice head. Aroma is dark toast. Flavor is dark and toasty with nutty aspects with a pleasant mild NW hop finish. A better than average amber ale and highly drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Copper color, light white head and lacing. Nose of caramel and cream, some light earthy hops. The flavor is malty, decent body with a blah flavor. Nutty and caramelly but nothing to really snap or round out the end. Finishes clean. Ok.

22oz Bomber - Gravity Beer Market - Olympia, WA
Aroma – Nice Malty aroma with a good use of hops.
Appearance – Dark amber in color, Nice head and clear.
Flavor – A good malty flavor felt a tad watery also. Seemed all the beers where like this. Had a nice flavor never less with some decent hops.
Palate – Nice Mouthfeel, good texture with a dry finish.
Overall – This was a good amber ale light to drink the water issue seems to be through out all there beers. Maybe set up funny. But they need to fix it. Decent at then end.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Safeway, Port Angeles; nose of grainy caramel, a little piney hoppiness with a yeasty note; orange-amber with a big beige head that laces the glass; flavor has caramel malt, hop bitterness, and some citrus; a little hops in the finish. Pretty good amber.

On tap at some place in Port Angeles, WA. Color was a dark caramel/amber. Aroma of chewy caramel and fruit, with a hint of flowers. Flavor was florally and fruity. Some bread in there as well. Pretty good tasting.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
fairly aggressive pour yielded a respectable 1 1/2" head that quickly fell to a wispy film that sticks to the sides of the glass. Some sediment in the bottle and glass. Faint sweet aroma, balanced hop scent. Good balance in flavor between the initial sweetness and the floral bitter finish. Most ambers have little hop finish, this one is very nice.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
From a 22 ounce bottle--Another poor pour from Port Townsend. Medium amber bodied beer with a over carbonated whitish head. Infected. Obvious this brewery has bottling issues. Lots of caramel and medium to bold citrus and bitter hoppiness. Leave this one alone. Heck, forget Port Townsend. They kind of suck.
