sampled in the 22 oz bottle ,bought today in Newport ,Oregon. Quite attractive brown with ruby accents in colour,slightly hazy. Good sized bubbly frothy white head. That dissapears fast but leaves nice lace. Spicy hop,and chocolaty malt hop aroma mostly Very spicy taste to this,and with a great malt backbone, some bitterness near the end, but it ends with a long drawn out ripe fruitiness.For some reason figs and raisins come to mind. Very smooth on the palate ,almost like a bottle conditioned beer. Very easy to drink. Nice winter offering from this great little brewery!

Dark mahogany with a rocky head and lots of big turds of lace. Spruce aroma with some caramel. Bitter hops as well. Lots of spices in the flavor with some alcohol and bitter hops. Dry palate with a bitter and sour finish, eh.

Bottle. Pours a deep mahogany color and just lightly opaque. Very modest whitish head forms and fades out to a slight broken layer over the center and a fair ring around the edge. Minimal lacing. Aroma is richly malty with a very healthy dose of "C" hop citrus nose. Full bodied, moderately viscous. Flavors of rich malt and a citric/piney hop presence blend nicely with a lingering hop presence at the finish. Quite well done.

If this is amber ale, it is the best I have ever had. Aroma is nice, primarily malt with a little caramel. Appearance is a strong point. Beer pour nice amber color with fully retained off white head and lots of lacing. Flavor is where things really start popping. Flavor is initially sweetly malty, the finish is has a light hoppy bitterness to it. Palate is fully perfect. Good stuff.

[Bottle, thanks Skyview] Pours amber with a small white head. Aroma is sweet--banana and caramel. Taste is sour up front, malty and a little roasted. Quite carbonated. Not bad, but a little funky.

Guerde (1161) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - SEP 1, 2007
(bottle, thanks Skyview) Pours a dark amber with a light tan head. Very toasty aroma, along with some caramel and fruit. Taste is far different than the aroma, and is predominately tart and sour like a green apple.

Enjoyed this while spending some time with my special friend Allison. The nose is dried fruit, wheat, and berries. The brew pours a murky chestnut with amber blonde highlights. The mostly lasting uber stiff & creamy bone colored head leaves fair lace. The brew has great balance and depth. No shortage of hops bitterness or citric tartness; very well done. The medium creamy body is lively. The finish feels dry and clean.

tight chocolate brown head topping a somewhat fuzzy reddish body. Dry grainy, chocolate, lightly roasted, toast and some noticeable alcohol. Caramel, ripe fruits, musty malty with some undertones of cobwebs and cream. reminds me faintly of a sammy smith taddy porter. chocolatey and smooth, a distinctive yeast character. sticky and roastey chocolate finish in a full bodied, smooth presentation. a SOLID beer!

SLightly sweet caramel aroma. Caramel sweetness carries throughout and is balanced with a generous bittering. A decent Amber.

Mmmm, nice, thick beer. The beer is not filtered so it has a nice thick look/taste/mouthfeel. The scent and taste is malty, but with enough hops to keep it from tasting too sweet. The bottle states that they use seven different malts and three hop varieties which explains the complexities of the taste. This is a great beer. This is my second bottle from this brewery and it won't be my last. God I love living in the PNW.
