Draught at Horse Brass. Pours a brassy color with dense soapy beige head. The aroma is fruity with pineapple and tangerine and even a hint of plum and some distant sawdust. The flavor is citrus hops, tangerine, and pineapple. Very fresh tasting. A piney bitterness marks the finish and leaves a fresh citric aftertaste. Good.

Pitcher at Concordia. Deep amber pour with a fairly mild white head and sticky lacing. Aroma was mainly citrus with light pine and biscuit malt. Flavor was big citrus hops and biscuit malt melding into an incredibly tasty combo. Would love to drink this one again.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at Elysian’s SBW Firkin-Firkin throwdown (vs. Sierra Nevada Pale Ale). Pours mostly clear amber with a small off-white head. Aroma is floral and citrus (mostly orange) hops, biscuity malts, brown sugar, and tea. Malt character in the taste is more cookie-like. Pretty light. Easiest pick of the night- I liked this a lot better than the Sierra Nevada.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale yellow coloured body with no head at all! Aroma of strong malt, alcohol and sugar. Full-bodied; Strong assertive taste of of alcohol, malt and fruits. Aftertaste shows a full-bodied flavour and strong as hell. A decent beer, not ’large’, but good flavoured with malt and hops coming through most often. Overall, an okay beer - not too special though. I sampled this beer on draught at Henry’s 12th St. Tavern in Portland, Oregon on 09-September-2006.
