3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Draft: Powerhouse Restaurant & Brewery in Puyallup, WA) Nice, toasty maltiness greets the nose for an excellent start to this beer. The impressive toastiness continues on in the flavor, which is also mildly sweet, malty, grainy, and balanced by a mild bitterness. Moderate body, and fairly clean from start to finish. Coppery amber color, totally clear, with an off-white head that again leaves a lot of patchy lacing on the glass as is fades to a small ring. Solid amber that manages to avoid the sweet caramel flavor that tends to dominate most ambers. Nice job.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a dark amber color with an ivory head. This beer tastes like peanuts! It’s kind of thin but has a pleasant mild finish that’s quite finish. The bitterness seems to come from roastedness and not hops.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Malty caramel aroma with some herbal hoppiness lingering in the background. Coloring looks just like a penny. Pleasant toffee maltiness that is very quaffable. A perfect session beer with a crisp hop finish.
