Draft at Fiddlerís Inn.
Clear light amber pour. Some nutty malt and a big of hoppy crispness on the close, slightly earthy, lots of taste -- Iím just amazed to discover weíre looking at 3.3 ABV. Water down by 3% and this baby would be legal in Utah! I would have called it at 5% at least. Props to Skagit for this one.

A nice hoppy dry lager. Way better than ANY megabrew. This little brewpub seems to make some decent beers...

UPDATED: SEP 13, 2005 Cloudy bronze colour. Leafy hops vs. biscuity malts. Throw in some strange fruity flavours - are they top fermenting this? Or is that just some new hop variety? Still a quality brew.

picturesque. vivid gold, tall fluffy head. herbal jasmine nose with sweet corn. more corn in the sip, aromatic dry bitterness. heavier body than most lagers. i could drink this all day, the ratings are unjustly low.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draught at the brewpub in Mt Vernon, Washington. Pours a semi-clear golden amber brew with a fast dissolving off-white head that leaves behind some spotty lacing and an average sized white ring. Aroma of light caramel malt, citrus zest, and a touch of grassy hops. Taste is medium bodied, with flavors of light apple, caramel and more grassy hops. Finish is semi-dry with a lingering bitterness that almost could put this into an American Pale Ale category. Nicely hopped premium lager overall.

On tap at Skagit River in Mt. Vernon, WA--Poured a pale clear straw golden hue with a frothy thick white head. Clean, grainy, mildly citrus nose. Very drinkable, great mouth feel, hop zest and clean, non-pervasive finish.

The aroma here is immediately a bit unusual - kind of citrusy (lemon) although really not all that hoppy despite the menu description. There is a very mellow malt profile here providing a nice compliment to the citrus. This actually turned out to be a rather enjoyable lager, smooth malt balanced by a pleasant crispness that gives the beer a very fresh character. Nice lager.
