Draught at the Bridgeport Brewery.
Decent caramel backing, with cherry. Well-balanced bitterness. Hop level relatively low. Not really exciting but the balance makes it very drinkable.

(bottle). Clear amber color. Medium tan head. Sweet malt aroma with light alcohol. Sweet malt flavor, similar to molasses. Avg duration. Slick texture. Fair lacing. Soft carbonation. Slightly astringent finish. viciousg42 (46) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 8, 2009
a decent amber. tastes a little dryer, not as quenching properties as other ambers ive had. its a little bit thicker. dirt55 (198) - Washington, USA - MAR 9, 2009
bottled, poured light amber, light tan head, mild hop aroma, with great malt presence, very smooth flavor with very little hop bittering, very balanced palate with no one flavor standing out, goes down almost too smooth. RickS95 (36) - Evansville, Indiana, USA - NOV 20, 2008
This was a weird beer. Poured a thin white head that dissipated quickly. Slightly darker in color than icea tea.
Limited smell, mostly malt with a very neutral mouthfeel. Didn’t pick up much with these two senses.
Sweet malty finish that eventually turned to slightly bitter in the finish.
Nothing special about this beer until the finish. It’s actually not a particularly good beer until the sweet then bitter finish, which saves this beer making it drinkable ajm (1072) - Los Angeles, California, USA - NOV 20, 2008
Bottle. Not the worst beer ever, but certainly not one you could pick from a lineup, which is what you’ll have when in Portland.
