Tap. Poured a nice brown colour with a light white head. In the taste, the roasted caramel flavors are much easier to notice and differentiate. I think this was better than others have rated, and worth trying again.

Taster @ Skagit River Brewpub. Nice and toasty. More red-looking than brown. Slightly more bitter than I would like. I could probably down a few of these with no complaint.

Darkened room made it difficult to get an accurate feeling of its look in the glass. Aroma was that of a brown ale; just not much there but not offensive. Solid toasted bread malt character. Light sweetness with a smooth earth and nut essence.

riversideAK (6160) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAY 19, 2009
Brownish red with a nice fluffy head. A little roasted nuts and caramel in the aroma. Nutty caramel malt flavors with an interesting off finish - seemingly a little astringent perhaps.
