This deep red beer is our second hoppiest brew although not overly bitter due to the balance of malty sweetness imparted by the 80L Caramel malted barley. This beer would fall loosely in the American Amber category but has its own uniqueness imparted by a small dose of roasted barley. The beer is finished using the highest quality Mt. Hood hops.

This was one of the best beers that pumphouse produced to me it was a nice caramel flavor.

Clear, with a copper hue and a fire truck shine. Frothy head with tightly packed white bubbles. Extremely sweet-smelling nose. Soft, smooth, and very creamy texture. Malts are thick: caramel sweetness with a chewy malleability, hinted with toffee and chocolate. Desert-like in a way. Unfiltered version: Low carb., smooth, nutty, with burnt-wood flavors along with a hint of smoke. Very subtle sweetness. Somewhat of a dryish finish, most likely from the hops. Thick and decently bodied.

Kind of had a sweet yet creamy fruity sweet kool aid thing going on in the flavor. Rich and malty, with alot of chocolate and caramel roastiness. Interesting and somewhat enjoyable, but not something I would seek out to try again.

On tap at the brewpub on 10/14/07: Clear amber copper with a wispy-lacing light tan head. Aroma of lightly sweet and toasty caramel malt. Body starts about average and quite drinkable with a touch of sweet caramel malt and grapefruity hops toward a crisp, bittersweet finish. A decent amber.

Tap @ Pumphouse: Poured a clear red copper color with a thin off-white head. The aroma was malty with some sweetness. Toasty caramel notes. The malty flavor had a little roast to it. Hints of chocolate and citrus. Semi-dry and bitter finish. Medium body.

Crushed with Jakebra at the brewpub. Sweet malt nose. Lots of sweetness. Definite initial hop bitterness that mellows into a very pleasant malt sweetness. One of the most appealing ambers I’ve ever had.
