2010-06-26. Dark red-brown body, small beige head. 3+ Flavour is malty, light toasty overtones. Aroma is similar, modest toasty character to the simple malty core. Average plus bodied palate. Pretty simple, but a good example of the style. On Tap at Raccoon Lodge, Portland.

Medium orange appearance. Very mild sweet hop aroma of pears and apples. Very plain maltiness, slightly sweet with a sour melon finish and a little bitterness. Good but not fantastic.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
2004 draught. Thought this was an alt, it had a nice muted nutty flavor, some dusty notes, but I guess after thinking about it, there was little to no yeast apparency, no sourness. Pretty light for an EPA, hops nowhere to be found. Light roasted malt, mostly dry with some hints of caramel on the finish. Great session beer, no major problems. Medium-light body. Aroma is lightly nutty with a soft even malt. Great deep reddish-orange color with small off-white head.

Sampled on tap at the brewery during ABA Beer Tour ’07. Pours a dark ruby copper brew with a creamy off-white head that dissolves to a fine white ring. Aroma of caramel barley malt with sweet apples. Taste is medium bodied, light carbonation with a smooth and creamy texture. Flavors picked up are caramel and some toffee character. Finish is a soft and bready without much bitter aftertaste. Nice done!
