3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampler, rated from 2001 notes. I didn't write down too much about this, consider it a mark that there was really nothing wrong with it. Just a good clean ale taste with a pleasing aroma. Went down well.
Tap at Beaver Stree Brewery, Flagstaff. Colour is clear orange with small white head. Aromas and flavours: Berries, some caramel, some hops and malts. Nothing special. slowrunner77 (12037) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUL 22, 2015
#1 among locals?!!?! ;)
average malty red beer - nothing bad, nothing special. toffee and very light roast, with little in the way of hops. kcorum10 (347) - Idaho, USA - MAY 29, 2013
Pours a amber/copper color with med off white head that stays around for a short while. Aromas of mild caramel malts with flavors of mild caramel sweetness balanced with the slight hop bitterness. dwyerpg (6180) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - APR 22, 2013
The fact that Beaver St and Lumberyard share facilites and beers makes it hard to get ratings in the right place. Nonetheless, this a great strong fresh hop aroma. Looks nice. This isn’t as hoppy as the aroma but has the light flavor of an amber. Quite tasty. daknole (11047) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 13, 2011
Reddish pour. Aroma is big on juicy hops and caramel. Flavor follows suit with a really nice hop finish. Good.

Hoppy aroma with a light amount of malt. Clear orange-red color with a small white head. Moderate bitter beginning joined by some light malt in the middle lasting to the finish. bierslaaf (105) - Somerset West, SOUTH AFRICA - MAY 17, 2011
On tap in a flight at the brewpub. Golden with a tinge of red, low carbonation. Small dissapating white head. Surprisingly low aroma. Some crystal malts and nondescript hops. Bitter especially in the finish. Overall a nice beer maybe a bit bitter for a red/American Amber Ale. DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 17, 2011
Served in a pint glass from tap. Had this at the Brewery, which was a very nice place. Review from notes.
3.5 A: Clear orange amber color, though the lighting was low so I could be off a bit. No head. The pour was a bad one and the beer was filled almost all the way up to the top of the glass so I can’t tell you much more.
3.0 S: Other than a touch of crystal malt, there isn’t anything going on. Rather disappointing.
4.5 T: Delicious and complex. Light fruits with a healthy bitterness that balances well. Malts are grainy, but not overly so. Herbal hop flavor. Everything meshes so well to make a great tasting brew.
4.0 M: Medium body. Smooth and creamy with good carbonation.
4.5 D: Excellent brew. This beer made the trip up to Flagstaff from Sedona worth while.
Serving type: on-tap

Amber color pour with a white head. Pretty standard amber aroma of caramel malt and earthy hops. Flavor is much the same. A bit thin, but passable. skortila (5850) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - AUG 16, 2010
West USA trip 2010. On tap @ the brewpub. The aroma has light hops, bit floral and some caramel malts. Clear, copper-amber coloured beer with not much head. The taste is slightly bitter, bit malty and a little citric. Average, but okay.
