Nice crystal clear copper color. Noble hops in such a refined and nicely balanced. Very mouthful of malt that lingers for minutes. Like most of their clean, filtered lagers.

A deeper golden with a nice head. Slightly chewy body. Full of toasted and slightly fruity with a good light spicy hop bite. Clean and crisp throughout. I could live on this. bvc (1242) - Washington, USA - MAR 13, 2016
Draft...many times, not sure why I haven’t rated it. I guess this is the case for most beers that I drink on the Reg. Why is that? Who knows...maybe had something to do with why I’ve never rated a beer a 5. Honestly, a Chuckanut beer should be one of my highest rated beers since I love to crush these fine, well crafted lagers that I’m lucky enough to live close to that I get them fresh. Clean clear light straw golden with proper head showing. Grassy, slightly corny sweet notes melded together with light biscuit malt. Clean light body with prickly carbonation and just enough body throughout. Lightly hits the grassy Nobel hops, the toasted malt and slight corn sweetness all the way through.

The folks at Chuckanut can do no wrong. Glowing orange pour with a modest head, lovely caramel flavors -- chestnuts and honey -- with enough bitterness on the close to really finish things up perfectly. Super toasty, like fresh-toasted whole grain bread. I’m no expert on the style, but all I know is that I enjoyed this one immensely, just as I have every other beer from Chuckanut. These guys are turning me to teutonic lagers in a way that even a month in Germany failed to. 7/4/7/4/15=3.8
Revisit 2/25/10. Hopeless Chuckanut fanboy? That’s me. Bump to 3.8 for exceptional sessionability. When else would I order three straight pints of anything?
Shaker pint draft at Naked City in Seattle. Pour is clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of toasty caramel maltiness. Taste is malty semi sweetness, some nice grassiness in the back. The grainy toast from the nose gives this a nice additional element. Smooth thin medium palate coats the mouth a bit but finishes really clean. Crazy drinkable. Super fresh and clean, nice.

Draft at the Old Town. Pours an absolutely crystal clear medium amber with a beautiful dense creamy tan head. No lacing, and the head falls away after a few swigs, but it’s picture-perfect while it lasts. Toasty brown bread nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toasty brown bread mid-palate with caramel blended in artfully. Mild malty finish. Flavorful and refreshing. IndianaRed (4937) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 29, 2012
As part of a sampler tray during my visit to Bellingham. Golden clear witha huge fluffy sandy colored head. Light bready aroma and a slightly sweet grain flavor. the hops come through a bit more than I expected and the full maltiness is not quite what I was expecting. Nice and tasty, attenuated nicely and lingering slightly woody tang at the end. Maybe a bit hoppy and bitter for the style.

Light copper color. Nice frothy white head. Very clean malty nose with notes of mineral and bread. Very nice clean malty mouth with bread and caramel. Light body, light to moderate amounts if bitterness. Very well executed. Nice bready hoppy finish. Beautifully crafted. BrewDad (5328) - Olympia, Washington, USA - JAN 21, 2009

Nice light lager had some good flavors. I liked the light malt and the carbonation was very nice. Perfect afternoon working in the yard beer. Very clean and fresh.
A: Small head that dissipated pretty quickly. Body is amber-colored and completely clear.
S: Light malt coming through, with some breadiness and caramel present.
T: Moderately sweet with caramel flavors, and a lightly bitter, dry finish. Goes down pretty smooth overall.
M: Medium-bodied with some slight creaminess, and average carbonation.
D: Nothing spectacular, but pretty decent. Goes down very easy. I’d definitely like to try some more Chuckanut beers after having this one.
