11 mar 2012, tap at The Bruery. Honey amber color and faintly hazy. Cedar hopiness and cherry? malt. Med/thin body and fizzy. Faint tart oakiness, light cherry syrup, mostly a grassy hop amber. Nice! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

timfoolery (1126) - California, USA - MAR 10, 2012
Bottle from Bev4Less. Aroma was of woody, centennial hops. Flavor kinda reminded me of Double Bastard and Oaked Arrogant Bastard, which made the style say American Strong Ale more than Amber Ale. This one was harsh to start, but definitely mellowed and was more enjoyable in the glass as it sat. Very good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fantastic beer. Lots of dark, fruity notes on the nose and the initial flavor, but slowly rolls across the palate and develops and oaky dryness. Certainly a complex brew that never tastes quite the same from sip to sip. So clean, light, refreshing, and delicious, but never would have guessed it’s a lager

On draft at The Bruery. Poured a golden reddish color with fluffy white head. Aroma was caramel and hops. Taste was fresh pure hops with a nice touch of oak on the finish. I’ve had this many times now but something about this was way better than any other time having it. Super Fresh!

Loakal pours a dark red color. The head on this beer is crazy as you can see. It took over my glass. A really good mixture here of hops and oak. Hops give off a citrus, grapefruit and pine aroma. On the other side is the oak and a hint of caramel. Really nice and inviting. The taste is pretty complex for a red and has a lot going on. It’s still nicely hopped and it gives off a good amount of bitterness. But there’s aspects I didn’t pick up in the aroma. Vanilla, earthiness, and spice. Then bring in the nice backbone of oak and caramel and you have the a perfect marriage of all the ingredients. Nothing gets in the way of each other and they all come through nicely. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, slick and sticky.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JAN 27, 2012
On tap @ The Bruery. Cloudy deep red with a small beige head. Aroma of dark caramel, citrus, oak and tropical fruit. Flavor is rich, sweet caramel malt, bitter hops and a slight oak presence. Medium body with average carbonation and a bitter finish. I like this, sounds like too much going on but all the flavors blend well.

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 26, 2012
Pours a dark golden orange/apricot color with a 1.5 finger white head that settles into a lasting ring.  Streaks of soapy lacing left behind. Slightly earthy aroma with lots of sweet malt notes, bready yeast and subtle funk.  Hints of toffee, caramel, biscuit and light fruit.  Not as hoppy as expected. Medium bodied with a dry, resinous hop presence that lingers over sweeter notes into a dry finish.   More hops than nose suggests. Subtle creamy texture with some faint citrus that gives off some sweetness to balance the  malt presence.  Hints of caramel, toffee and bready yeast but hops are still prominent.  . Decent amount of dry bitterness but still well balanced with above average drinkability.

Bottle @ home. Fairly clear, reddish brown appearance with a light tan head. Toasty, caramel malty, mildly woody, moderately piney/citrusy hoppy aroma. Creamy caramel malty, fairly bitter, pretty big piney/citrusy hoppy, mildly oaky flavor. Easy drinking but nothing too exciting.

Dogbrick (11607) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 18, 2011
Sample at Bruery Provisions. Pours a copper-amber color with a medium off-white head that burns away slowly to a film. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel malt and citrusy hops. Medium body with flavors of sweet malt, citrus, hops and a bit of spruce. The finish is malty with a slightly woody aftertaste. Decent overall.
