Draft pour at the brewery. Pours an oily copper color with a lasting head. Grassy hops aroma. Flavor is pretty grassy as well, with some bitter hop finish. Pretty standard pale, but tasty overall. I’ll take this over a lot of competition.

On tap at the brewery. Pours pinky orange with minimal head. Earthy hop aroma with some pine. Taste, after initial pine flavor, is primarily bitter grapefruit peel that lingers and lingers. Not bad but it doesn’t seem like a pale to me.

Black Raven Brewery – Redmond, WA

Amber in color, clear with a thin head. Nice malt and hops balance. Light fruit flavors along with a good dry finish. This beer was easy drinking and very tasty.

Draught at Mukilteo Lodge
Hazy amber color with compact head. The hopping is quite fruity (aroma), the malt flavor is lean, the final is bitter, with some resins and not enough fruits. Tastes old.
Nice but simple.

SYNEK Bag: ($24 128oz). This was my fist SYNEK fill. Reddish with off white head. Very malty with some roasty flavors. Medium body, light carbonation (may be me getting used to SYNEK system). Somewhat bitter end. Slightly metallic.
