Thought this was above average when it came to flavor for an amber ale. Aroma of malts — breads, earth, leather and yeast. The flavor was all malt with a slight bitterness and slightly tart aftertaste. Thin body with nice carbonated mouthfeel. jazz88 (2675) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 30, 2003
Tap. Malty and smooth with some caramel. An amber brown color with a laced tan head. Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - SEP 12, 2001
Nice malty nose, dark amber color, moderately cardonated and a decent hop presence at the end. Close to a Marzen?, Octoberfest toasty maple sugar like tones, a good beer overall as with most of this brewers line. Bockyhorsey (2628) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUL 27, 2005
This one had an aroma of peanuts. Darker amber body with good tan head and lacing. Had a good mix of nuts and dry hops to it. Was a smooth and easy drinking beer. joet (2604) - Wilsonville, Oregon, USA - JAN 16, 2002
This is a good beer to sit with. Very good presentation with a copper head, mild aromas of malt and vine, with a surprising and explosive flavor of apples, carmel. This finishes long and bitter. One of the smaller but better breweries in Central/Northern California.

Off the tap with one finger of head on a cloudy, dark straw colored body.
The aroma is citrusy and honey, pretty nice.
The taste is mildly sweet with a hop spicy middle.
It’s smooth with moderate carbonation.
Here’s a good beer with some unique flavors and still an everyday drinker. Reid (2527) - Salem, Oregon, USA - AUG 13, 2011
12 oz single from "Lifesource" Salem Oregon. $1.45
By the label can see this one has been around for a while.
Semi hazy dark amber ale with a really nice looking light tan head..thats is thick and creamy.
Very toffee/ Scottish fudge like nose..this attracts me!Butterscotch,cream and toffee mm mm mmm.
f\Taste is similar but with a nice toasted edge to it..i like.
Nice smooth semi-thick body make this a really easy drinking beer.
I thought this a very nice uber malty amber. SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - APR 12, 2009
12oz bottle. Darker red-amber with a lasting beige head. Mostly malty, nutty aroma with some almost tea-like darker crystal malt. There is also a somewhat odd doughy, yeast character that may be working with some not-quite-fresh hops to make an interesting though not necessarily bad aromatic aspect. The flavor is similar, with a medium malty sweetness and modest hops in the finish adding a lightly floral, bitter touch. Medium bodied with smooth carbonation. This is okay but not great, and I’m surprised how much better the dry-hopped version is at the brewpub. Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 15, 2006
Pour is clear amber with a thin tan head...generic citric aroma...slightly sweet fruity flavors with grapefruit bitterness in the end... Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 13, 2009
On tap at Zeitgeist, San Francisco, 27th March 09, with Phyllis. Hazy darkish amber. Toffee malt flavour, decent.
