A pretty decent red ale, though the coloring wasn’t what I wanted. Solid body with great roast malt notes.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle:   Deep dark caramel, dirty, large frothy off-white head, decent lacing.   Seems pretty dark
and murky for an Amber.   Nose smells musty, barnish, a bit sour in fact.   Oh boy, rather tart on the
tongue, otherwise toasted malts, horseblanket, and some basement dankness.   This must be on the way out.
I just got this bottle not that long ago either.   Much like Reid, I think this bottle is whacked.
This one deserves a re-rate.   Odd, had they called it their attmempt at an American Sour, I would say that it
was an okay start.   Amber Ale... hardly.   Tap or new bottle is in order.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
First visit to Portland, first Oregon brew, 8 beers on tap, first up is Seven Brides, Ill try that. Poured fine, average head, good appearance, darker than I expected. Nose is dark malt with faint hop tone. First taste caught me off guard with sourness. Tastes of green olive juice at first reaction that lingers on longer than wanted. I want to dismiss this beer, but feel it warrants further review. Luckily, I have a trip planned to their brewery this weekend. I will update.

pours a great head with a distinct malty aroma. the taste is well balanced with the hops definitely present but not overpowering. medium mouthfeel, a little sourness with the aftertaste. overall a great amber

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
From a 22 oz bottle this poured a very dark amber color tending almost toward brown that raised a fine looking light tan head that left good lacing. The nose is caramel malts and a hint of floral hops. Body is light to medium and the mouthfeel soft. The flavor is of lightly burnt malts and there is a little sourness present. Finish has the light sourness as well.

malty but not sweet. nice amount of carbonation to balance the malt. easy to drink. a more distinctive amber than most.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
22 oz bomber.
Aroma is fine enough, mostly toasty type malting, but OK.
Apprearance..murky brown with just a wisp to suggest a head even existed..it did for like 5 seconds.
taste/ not impressed, sourish ,bitter malts, burnt..A touch of hop but not much else.
Very thin, watery palate to this one. Not very appetizing.
Very dissapointed at this one.
Their lager type beers are much better..this was like Michelobs attempts at "craft beer" but even more bland.

Tap... Poured deep reddish/brown with a fluffy, off-white head. Roasted, caramel, sweet malts on the nose. Very creamy and smooth going with roasted, cocoa malts, sweet caramel and toffee, and mild hoppiness. Just like the description, enough hops to let you know their there.
