Draft, a lovely darker amber with a 1 inch off-white head. Aroma is faint but mostly floral. The flavor is a nice biscuit malt and citrus hop, delicious! This beer is very drinkable.

snakeoilpete (324) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 5, 2009
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.

jgb9348 (5605) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAY 10, 2009
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.

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.

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.

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.
