bulldogops (2490) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 5, 2017
Rating #2428 - 2016.04.11 - Draught @alibiroom - Copper&Theory TT - ours a dark amber brown with a foamy tan head that dissipates slowly, medium-strong retention. Aroma is some caramelly malts, mild citrus, mild pine. Taste is bold with some west coast citrusy hops, mild bitterness, but has a strong caramel malty sweetness, hint of soft fruits in the finish. Well balanced, west coast bitter-ish.

fiulijn (20411) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 19, 2016
Draught at Alibi Room, Vancouver
Hazy amber color. A bit bready and cereally, good job with the malts, and the resiny hops are not bad too. Delicate and balanced. Not an ESB, but still a very good beer. A lot of character.

mcberko (17178) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 11, 2016
On tap at the Alibi Room, pours a cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma brings out subtle notes of bready malt and English hops. Flavour is smooth, with loads of crusty rye bread and gentle English hopping. Really nicely constructed for the style. Very drinkable.

Ferris (15013) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 11, 2016
Draft - Light citrus and pale malts. Clear gold with a decent white head. Grains and light bitterness with a touch of sweetness. Grainy, but nice.

BuckeyeBoy (7531) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 20, 2015
On tap at breakside Portland. Pours out a burnt orange topped with a small head. Nose is lots of bread malts some wood and grain. Taste is more of the grain bread malts and some fruity sweetness.

On tap @ the brewery, RBSG. Golden amber, bready caramel, lightly fruity. Papery finish.

brokensail (16432) - Dublin, California, USA - JUN 29, 2015
On tap @ Breakside. Nice orange/amber pour with a white head. There’s kind of an overwhelming estery quality to this. Big time apple, pear, and golden raisin. There’s some honey and crusty bread to it, too. Light bitterness of grassy hops and tea leaves. Same sweet fruit and malt flavors as I get on the nose. Maybe a bit of caramel as well.

3.3
djd07 (14366) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 19, 2015
On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear orange copper with small off white head leaving sticky lacing. The aroma is toasted grain and wet biscuit. Medium mouth, bready malt, light grain, good.

3.3
maekchu (3847) - Hirakata, JAPAN - SEP 3, 2013
Draught at Breakside Restaurant & Pub Brewery. Sweet light caramel nose with a touch of pasture and manure. Hazy light copper. Night light hopping and moderate caramelly flavors. Thin-medium body. Thin but a pleasant West Coast sort of bitter.
