2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Had it with a burger. A pretty standard ale with just a little more spunk. Did enjoy finishing it with a cigar while watching the rain. The palate complemented the cigar nicely. Try again time: 1 year.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at the 2nd Street Grill in Yakima. Pours a slightly muddy looking medium copper, definite haze and somewhat cloudy, minimal head. Aroma is a mixed bag between old oranges and citrus with an old fruity ester, no specific malt aromatics present. Leans toward the candy-like sweetness of caramel malt side of an amber ale rather than hoppy. Displays a moderate to slight amount of an indistinguishable ctirus hop profile. Finishes a little sweet with a fusel-like characteristic....lending a slightly cool and slick feel to the tongue. There’s a light nutty characteristic that wants to come through but is lost in a muddied variety of flavor.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle:   Hazy amber, a little dark, moderate foamy off-white head, spotty lacing, very light carbonation.   Malty aroma, smidgen of earth and mealiness.   Otherwise seems to have a bit of honey.   Decent malt base
on the tongue, not very hoppy which is nice.   Not heavy, but smooth and clean.   I like this one.   Has a little bit of of that Bit ’O Honey flavor.   Very easy drinking.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.
Backside is a little mealy, but not too bad.   This one is a little sweet, moderate maltiness, some mealiness, and also some honey like candyish notes.   I can dig it.

Tap: Clear copper brown color with a tan head. Aroma of lemon, and perhaps a hint or coriander. Bucket loads of citrus In the flavor and smooth going down. Different, so it gets points for that. Not bad

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma and Flavors: Mostly orange malt that transitions into white grapefruit on the finish. Medium-Full bodied Amber style Ale that uses some of the more traditional hops from the Yakima Valley before the high alpha days. Unstated bittering and grassy hops. Good.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22. Pours a clear medium amber with a dense and fairly fluffy wheat-bread-colored head, a nice grainy looking light tan. Pocked and lacy. Toasty caramel nose with a bit of biscuit there. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Toast, caramel, biscuit, mild earthy hops on the mid palate. Clean and well made, kinda feel like I have been through this beer a million times before. Still, for what it lacks in uniqueness, it more than companesates with drinkability. Nice clean session ale.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Wonderful copper color body with a nice white, full bodied head. Aroma is doughy without any real distinction. Thin upfront with very light toasted malt body and slight caramel hints. Some leafy character with a dry grainy cereal finish. Slight citrus notes. A tad watery and extremely plain.

Appearance – Amber in color, Clear with a thin head.
Flavor – This was a nice malt flavor there whas a grainy flavor to this also. Hops could have been more balanced.
Palate – Dry grainy finish with a Nice Mouthfeel.
Overall – This was a decent Amber just needed more with the hops and less grainy flavor in the finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Received 22-oz bomber from scrizzz via Mystery Swap, one of the first beers to try from Yakima Craft. Pour a semi-clear brownish amber colored brew with a fast dissolving off-white head that dissipates to a thing ring. Aroma of roasted caramel malt, floral hops, a hint of roasted nuts and light fruit. Taste is light to medium bodied, flavors of floral hops, light caramel and Munich malts, a hint of toffee and some fruit. Finish is a tad watery, slightly sweet with a fast disappearing Munich malt to a crisp finish. Average amber ale over all but I like the cassette tape artwork.
