3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Walking Man. A solid, but unspectacular beer. Aroma of caramel and flowers; some fruitiness. Flavor was pretty bitter for the abv. Not great flavor. Pretty bitter though. Very earth/pine/citrus.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap... Poured a reddish/amber with a thin, off-white head, nice lacing throughout drinking the brew. Fruity, floral hop aroma. Pretty dry, foamy palate that stripped my mouth through to the finish. A strong burst of floral hops. A little bit of alcohol snuck in but was soon muted by malted grain in the finish. Also a tiny bit of caramel sweetness. A good strong ale for hop heads.

Draft at the brewpub. Pours a clear pale amber color with a small off-white head. Has a malty hoppy pine aroma with hints of grapefruit. Dry malty and hoppy bitter piny flavor with hints of grapefruit. Has a long dry malty hoppy bitter pine needles finish with a long bitter aftertaste.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.
