22 oz bottle. Poured a nice darkredish brown with medium, long lasting head. Nice nose of malts with subtle hops. Very easy to drink. Smooth on the palate and good to the last drop. A very nice ale that is well balanced.

This has that nice, quality character too it. Nice frothy head, rich sumptuous aroma of hops and caramel malt. The hops are citric and spicy- blending wonderfully with the malt. The only drawback for me is the sweetness in the finish, although appropriate somehwhat for a Scottish ale, I find to sweet. Very good overall however.

Bottle courtesy of BuckNaked. Pours dark ruby/brown with decent beige head that fades to film. Initial aroma is all malty caramel, with some hops in the background, maybe even some rye? Flavor much the same. caramel, toffee, light chocolate, with pine and citrus hops in a huge bitter finish. Very well done.

cloudy light brown with lasting tan head. This 22 oz bottle was a gusher. Though no sign of infection other than perhaps a slight overcarbonation. Aroma was malty vanilla with hops, a bit sweet. The flavor is a creamy malty backbone with hop flavor and bitterness in the finish. Nice

Bottle shared with tupalev at Bar Volo. Pours brown with an average fizzy white head. Aroma is moderately hoppy with some citrus, scotch and sweet malts. Smells great! The flavour is a near perfect blend of hops and malt. Palate is nice and creamy. An awesome beer and one of my favourites. Bear Republic continue to impress.

Poured dark amber with a thick tan head. The head retention was very good. Very good aroma with courant, butterscotch, caramel, rye, citrus and graitfruit. The aroma drew me right in. Taste had a great malt and hop balance with the caramel really standing out. Mouthfeel was one of the best ever with a tickle on the palate and the caramel malts working so effectively. I have only positive things to say about this beer. The best I’ve had so far from Bear Republic. I’m just glad I can get this relatively near by.

Pours a deep amber / copper with caramel maltiness and citrus hops. Bought it a BevMo in Pasadena. THanks to that couple for suggesting Bear Republic.

Great beer from the Bear Republic. Very drinkable. Did not feel that strong of a beer. A little sticky with a little bit of smokiness. Hoppy balance.

mds (2256) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 12, 2005
bottle. mahogany-copper body, fluffy off-white head and a sticky lace. sweet hoppy aroma - thick resin... a light yeast background. starts out spritzy and quite malt accented but then the hops hit you! It’s not overwhelmingly hoppy which makes it a little easier to attain balance. thicky resin, creamy yeasty body. long sticky hoppy finish.
