pours a light copper with a medium beige head. aroma of grass/hay and malt. Nice malty taste. Some mild hop bitter arrives in the middle and goes into a pleasant hop presence on the finish. Not syrupy like many bocks. A really good balanced beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours with almost no head. More on the malt (caramel, nutty feel) side but with a nice touch of extra hops in the end which is a bit unusual for this style (but expected considering it s made in USA)

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is strongly malty with notes of marmelade, fruits, raisin and slight vanilla. Mouthfeel is nice and slick with a medium amount of carbonation. The flavor is definately malty, sweet and marmelade-ish with some butterscotch and vanilla. Finish has some slight spice, probably from the hops. Definately a really nice beer!

Wow. Quiet, calm, refreshing. Nothing unwanted upfront, nor aftertaste. I might be giving this more credit cause it is Oregon Craft.

Old rating. I’ve had many 6-packs of this over the years. An absolute American craft beer classic. One of my gateway beers that changed my palate. Nice yeast and malt aroma. Great malt-forward taste. As it warms up cinnamon and cardamom become slightly noticeable. Sweet on the palate and nose. A bit of bitterness on the way out that lingers.
