RagallachMC (631) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JUN 21, 2007
22oz bottle. Aroma: Big hop nose with notes of pine, citrus, and resin. Malt comes through more as it warms with notes of caramel, bread, and chocolate. Appearance: Dark reddish brown in color and opaque. Medium beige head was full and foamy with good retention. Nice lacing. Flavor: Roasted malt with notes of caramel, dark fruits, and bread. Hops come on strong with pine and resin, and a good citrus note. Medium-high bitterness leads to a medium-sweet finish. Palate: Medium bodied. Medium carbonation. Overall: Loved the play of malt vs. hops. Hops are the focus, but doesnt overbalance.

ABUSEDGOAT (2704) - California, USA - JUN 21, 2007
Dark amber, large rocky head with good lacing and retention. Aroma is strong PNW hops (grapefruit mostly) with some chococaramel malts. Medium to full body, fairly predictable hopping, but the malts made this somewhat interesting. No matter what, its well made and enjoyable.

Full bodied with the some of the best flavors. I like the way it looks in a tall glass, the color is beautiful. First taste and I was hooked.

ultraspank (867) - Alverca, Lisboa, PORTUGAL - JUN 13, 2007
Nose of flowers, pine, pine, pine and pine. How about an Evergreen Mountainside? Pours cola brown with ruby amber highlights. The lovely cascade produces a tight creamy bone head that is mostly lasting and leaves lace like spiderwebbing. The flavor is consistantly bitter with moderate acidity. The huge roasted and bitter floral finish is impressive. The thick body is creamy and soft. The finish feels dry. Bear Republic has emerged as another serious player in the world of microbrewing.

kmeves (1098) - Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 11, 2007
Dark ruby red color with lasting tan frothy head with lacing. Big citrus hop/caramel malt aroma. Flavor is nutty malt and big full, well-developed hops. Heavily bodied, finishes more on the sweet side. Kind of a Scottish/American Amber Ale mix.

dkoonce (911) - Peoples Republic of Athens, Ohio, USA - JUN 10, 2007
From Alefest in Columbus Ohio. Brown, with a thin creamy tan head and a medium body. Smooth and smoky. A very drinkable beer for a strong ale.

Lowe1983 (1575) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - JUN 8, 2007
Pours a darker copper color with a tan head. Aroma is of citrus and pine hops, toffee, dark fruits, caramel, and some sweet malts. Flavor starts off sweet with caramel and dark fruits. Theres not much of a middle flavor but the citrus and mainly pine hops come forward strong on the finish to give it a bitter, lingering flavor. Overall this is a pretty good brew, a little dissapointed with the flavor but still pretty decent.

nightrider (754) - encinitas, California, USA - JUN 3, 2007
Dark brown color with medium whitish head.Aroma of dark malt and hops. Rich and comolex on the palate. Aggressive hop taste with sweet malt and some earthy spiciness.Extremely well balanced with a nice smooth finish. A winner in my book.

Reid (2497) - Salem, Oregon, USA - MAY 31, 2007
Nice ,handsome ale,brown with red tinges, topped by a gorgeous thick frothy tan head. Good balanced aromas, you first pick up the piney hops but soon a nice caramel malt aroma joins in. Smooth mostly malty flavour at first with the hops appearing much later in the mouthful, mainlly citric in intensity. Though nice on the tongue, this is just a tad too thin for style. Over all a nice amber ale.
