Old Town Shanghai’d IPA 2.9
Bottle from imperial bottle shop in Portland. Really malt heavy than hop heavy. In my mind a bit more like a east coast malty IPA. Even further drinks more like a red ale. Not to sure what this might be. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Old Town Sun Dazed 3.5
22oz bottle bought from Fred Meyer in Wilsonville OR. $4.99 Pours a slightly hazy golden straw coloured beer with a small white head..leaves gorgeous lace. Aroma of apricot stones , honey and anise. Interesting. Taste is much the same as the aroma but with the slightest taste of hops. Palate is fine for the style and finishes semi dry. A nice drink..even for the time of year!

Old Town Shanghai’d IPA 3.5
22 oz bomber purchased from Fred Meyer in Wilsonville OR. $4.99 Says 6.5% alc and 65 IBU Amber coloured ale..a bit hazy also with a lovely thick and creamy eggshell white head. Pretty pleasant aroma of flowers and orange peel..yu can tell the malts are strong though. Again the taste is pleasant maybe too balanced..but picking up the floral and citrus hops..but the malts are strong with toffee and treacle aspects..but finishes bitter again in the end. Mouth feel is quite good and i like the long lingering after taste. I kinda go against the grain here and say i liked the beer...even if its more a hoppy Amber than a PNW IPA

Old Town 1 Up Mushroom Ale 3.7
At the OBF. Sorry I handed off m program with a little more info. Hit of the festival to me. The brwers-- and this my first beer from then--found the right malts and hops to work with the mushrooms--earthy, edgy, roasted. Deep brown with tan head. aromas of moss, molasses, rye and resin. A visceral mouth feel. Flavors continue that forest funk with a sharper resin edge over brown sugar and a hint of plum, aromatic finish.

Old Town Vanport Pale Ale 2.6
"A pleasant light floral hop aroma above a malty backbone. On the palate, it’s a little muddled and the malt takes over a little much for my liking. Just so so."

slowrunner77
Old Town Shanghai’d IPA 2.8
"Sessionable, yes. Turned out to be a pretty average beer though. Probably under avaerage for a NW IPA. Lightly hopped orange, grapefruit and some spice on the nose. Flavor is well balanced but unexciting."

Old Town Ol’ Joe 3.5
"A dark amber/brown winter warmer type strong ale with a heavy does o joe. Malty leaning, medium bodied and fairly rich. The coffee is strong, and the strong point of the beer as well. Not sure how good this would be wityhout it, but it’s pleasant."

Old Town Spring Forward IPA 3
"The IBUs show in this pretty agressively bitter IPA. The flavor is nice, as is the aroma. Fruity citrus and pine. But it’s light outside of the bitterness with a thin body."

slowrunner77
Old Town Winter Rose 3.2
"What this murky dark amber beer lacks in identity it makes up for in character. A bit unfocused (good luck picking a style blind) but this low hopped, malty, kinda yeasty ale was unique enough to enjoy, despite it’s faults."
