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.

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.

5000 (6027) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 22, 2011
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.

pinkzambia (1395) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 15, 2011
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

Wombata (358) - Kobe, JAPAN - AUG 26, 2010
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.

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.

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.

BrewDad (4632) - Olympia, USA - APR 3, 2010
22oz Bottle – 99 Bottles – Federal Way, WA
Aroma – Malty nose with light hops added.
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.

pours a clear dark amber with a medium size off-white head, and good lacing. smell is of caramel, spice, a touch of lemon, and a touch of roasted malt. taste is smooth, grain, malt, and caramel, ends a little weak and grainy.

Skyview (5109) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JAN 19, 2010
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.
