3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz. bottle via trade with OhioDad - Pours a mohogany color with a half finger thick off white head. Light spotty lacing. Aroma and flavor is caramel malt and light spice. Light to medium body. This beer was so so. At least it wasn’t as bad as some of the past Siletz beers I’ve had. Thanks Scott.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
NOTE: POSSBLY BAD BOTTLE. Medium amber color. Medium sized white head. Aroma is malt, fruit and Christmas spices. A medium bodied “amber”. Malts are fruity and sweet. Hops are slightly spicy. Dried fruit and spice, caramel, nutmeg and cinnamon. That said there is also an off taste, sort of faded, sour and thin. Will need to retaste. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sour.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
(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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
22oz bottle - Well let me start this one off by saying it was around 85 degrees here in Ohio today and I sent my kid to the basement for a beer. What does she come up with a winter warmer.. LOL.. Good thing this really wasn’t all that warm. Pours murky amber with a short offwhite head and a little lace. Aroma is mostly caramel, some slight earthy notes and maybe a touch of pine. Flavor is raisin, spice, caramel, and lots of earth.. and by earth I mean like dirt.. Palate is fizzy upfront but really there isn’t much carbonation at all. Almost flat.. This one is really bad honestly I’ve tried all of Siletz’s beers now and haven’t found one really worth buying..

This beer is a little sour, which I suspect is unintentional. Malt in the flavor and no hop presence, which is OK for an amber. Bitter finish.

Another taster courtesy of Skyview. Cloying hop nose with citrus hints. Some funk that shouldn’t be there as well. Brown color with a sour body.

Amber ale? Hah. Murky dark orangish amber, moderate to small head, some lacing and retention. Aroma is caramel, light hops, some darker fruit, light spicing. Medium bodied, somewhat sweet, mostly not enjoyable.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
In the bomber bottle from John’s Market in Portland. Pours a cloudy rusty brown with a medium beige head. Lemon-like aroma. The flavor is quite tart with an incredibly harsh bitter bite at the end. At first, I wondered if something was wrong with this because the bitterness was not hop-like at all, but rather the bitterness one might expect from drinking a poison. One of those Mother-Nature-is-warning-me bitter flavors. However, as it warmed and I kept at it, I realized that the bitterness really was from hops, just not very good flavoring hops and way too many of them. Plus, I was not poisoned.
