Cirrhosis (1224) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 15, 2009
Brown body with some red notes a large white crown floates on top with phenomenal retention. Sour malty, soapy, with some hop aroma. Aroma is sour and unpleasant. Sour bile flavour built on mild nutty malts. Brew has a bitter finish with a long lasting coffee after taste. Piney hops are detectable. Why does this taste like soap? Ugggg…. I can drink this but it’s not all that great in fact I don’t really like it."

djd07 (3896) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 11, 2009
Bottle as shown. Pours a clear amber with a medium off white head that diminishes quickly to nothing. The aroma is caramel malt with licorice and raisin. Thin mouthfeel with a dry malt flavor with caramel and a nice sweet finish. Easy to drink, hiding the alcohol well, a good amber ale from Pyramid

Mahogany in color, big body, strong carmel malt flavor- too much for my taste.

Unless we got a bum rake, I don’t think this one is worthy a 68 percent style. It was kinda like a weak brown with a lager aftertaste. Eh.

Copper pour with medium sized head. Caramel and nutty notes in the aroma. Flavor reminded me a lot of a brown ale, not too bad.

hobbersr (690) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 22, 2009
Pours a nice red/copper colour with an off white head. Aroma is sweet, lots of caramel coming through, some dry leaves, some grain, floral notes some spice and soft fruit coming through as well. Tastes pretty malty, this is defiantly a malt first PNW brew. Soft fruits, caramel, apple, toffee, dried leaves, black pepper, nuttiness, and some musty notes. Sticky on the palate, a little heavy. I do appreciate the balance of hops, balance of sweetness, but this beer is not blowing me away.

milljam (682) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - FEB 22, 2009
Aroma is mainly caramel malt, with some hints of hops. Flavor is very malty, caramel and toffee. Hops come through a bit in the end. Mouthfeel is sticky and clings to the palate. Its an average autumn-type brew, although it may have a better taste when it is fresher.

Amber pour with a small white head. Malty nose. Flavor is malty, lightly sweet and smooth. Not bad, but rather unremarkable.
