Deep red-amber color, crisp hoppy aroma, and a luscious combination of roasted toffee and caramel make this beer a favorite. 1991 Great American Beer Festival Gold Medal.

On tap at Eugene Brewery. Pours brown gold with a beige head and clings. Aroma is mostly toasted malt with some caramel and nuttiness. Similar taste but some hops in the finish. Caramel linger. Creamy palate.

timfoolery (1126) - California, USA - JUN 28, 2009
Sixth taste on tap at the brewery. This one was much better than most. Nice balance between hops and malt, leaning toward the malt. Nice for the style.

Sampled in Eugene. A pretty good amber. Pours dark with a thin head. Has a lot of crisp maltiness. Very refreshing on a warm day. Great brew.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - OCT 24, 2008
Tap at Oregon brewpub.
Pours a thick, whiskey (not whisky, in this case) brown with an off-white head. Smells of nutty hops. Flavor is light, floral hops- what I think an IPA should be. Feathery mouthfeel. Not bad at all.

I had a keg of this for my 23rd birthday and have had it at numerous Eugene Emeralds games in the years since. Solid amber pour with a very minimal head. Flavors heavily of caramel and toffee and other sticky sweet and malty bidness. Seriously long finish and solid to the last drop.
