From a growler fill at the brewery today. Only my second go at Walking Man products. Pours hazy amber with an off-white head that is half of the glass. Second pour was almost half the glass! Lots of lacings. The usual fine Northwest flavor profile. Bitter grapefruit-orange-resinous piney hops. A good amount of malt flavor. Aroma is piney hops. There is an earthiness in the palate. More complex flavor than most Northwest brews. Nice dry, bitter finish. I think this is a fresh batch as the beer board at the brewpub said "back at last". Very satisfying beer. So far two fine beers from W.M. in tiny Stevenson, Washington. (the other was Pale Strider Pale Ale) I shall return.

7/19/08 On draught at the Brewpub. Aroma is sweet citrus forward with sweet caramel malt. Appearance is hazy gold with a moderate white head. Flavor is earthy, a little harsh, with very low sweetness. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and slightly starchy. Overall, much easier drinking than the description suggests, but the flavors don’t balance very well.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours clear copper with a dense head that produces sheets of off-white lace. Toffee, fruit and citrus nose. Caramel and fruit taste. Bittersweet finish that is both earthy and floral.

riversideAK (5625) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JUN 20, 2008
Dark copper with a bubbly head. Aromas of caramel and toasted malt, toffee, and a light sweetness. Flavor starts out malty with caramel, toast, nuts, butter, vanilla all with a floral, peppery, and light bitter fruit finish.

Ungstrup (29223) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 15, 2008
A hazy copper colored beer with a thin tan head. Both the aroma and flavor are sweet malty with primary notes of grass. I find the body thin.

sampled @ brewpub - clear and light amber in color; aromas of caramel, malts and lots of hops; very little bitterness in the flavors as it drinks slightly creamy and smooth; yummy

franksnbeans (265) - Columbus, Maryland, USA - DEC 29, 2007
Pours a light apricot amber with a thick white head. Smells of juicy Simcoe, earthy, and almost peach. Big hops in the mouth, nicely balaced with some caramel malt. Very smooth and easy to sip away on. A tasty brew.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 17, 2007
Poured a deep orange-amber body with a little white head. Nose of bold citrus hops and caramel sweet malts. Gritty, earthy, sharp, deep, and complex. Great easy drinking body and flavor. Finished bitter and refreshing like I would have hoped from one the Pacific Northwest’s finest.
