3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Well made and balanced beer. Malty aroma and palate but kept in check but a noticeable, but not overpowering hop influence.

I was surprised at the bitterness from this amber. Also surprised at the low abv of 4.4%. Nice dark amber, but I thought a little over the top on bitterness. I normally enjoy ambers but found myself struggling to finish this one.

Alefest sample. Aroma is decent with plenty of pine and citrus hops but this was lacking on flavor. Feels watery and with low carbonation. Decent but disappointing.

Pours a amber brown with a medium sized head. Aroma is of citrus and spice with flavors to match. The more I drank it the more I enjoyed it

very strong hop profile considering the abv. the bitterness is a little piercing for my tastes, lending to a bit of imbalance. seriously not bad though.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from the bottle into a pint glass. Pour produced a dark amber body, topped by an off-whitish yellow head of foam, with some staying power, also being thick and frothy. The aroma is big on hops, like fresh pine. I took some time breathing in the aroma, appreciating the freshness of the hops. This is a dry, bitter ale with a medium body, thin mouthfeel, average carbonation, and a long bitter finish. The appearance and aroma of this ale set me up for something dynamic, which set my expectations higher than necessary. This ale was alright, though itís watery texture and lack of balance made this fall below my inflated expectations.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Dark amber with a long lasting white head. A nice aroma of malt and hops. The flavor is hoppy. The malt and toasted malts balances this thing out. Iím impressed a great beer that isnít an ultra big beer, just a good session beer. No make that a great session beer. Now if they would just ship a keg of this to Enumclaw Wa.

A 12 oz bottle with no freshness date or made on date. The beer pours a dark copper color with a small light brown head. A smell of wicked strong hops and not much else. The taste is pretty good but lacking somthing. Good carbonation and a nice beer.

Iíve seen six packs of this beer forever, but never until today saw a single bottle available for purchase. Wasnít sure what to expect, but itís certainly not one of the better stone brews.
