Malty and spicy. Nice flavour for a lower % alcohol brew. I thought the % was much higher than 5.3, or it was just really good. Recommended. jebert (500) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 10, 2011
Pours amber into the glass with a huge foamy light tan head. Aromao is malt. Very creamy on the palate. Taste is robust malts, oats and nuts with a mild hoppy note on the finish. A delightful ale which pairs well with burgers and brats off the grill. kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - NOV 18, 2011
12oz bottle, purchased at the brewery. Drank plenty of this in the last month or so; finally getting around to rating it. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a creamy, off-white head; fine-bubbled lacing. Cereal notes, light caramel, and a nice mineral and citrus bitterness on the perimeter, still allowing that malt character to show through. Medium body; moderate CO2; a really nice, toasty malt character comes through here, with modest accompanying notes of caramel and tea; lively in the mouth, with a soft surrounding of hops and a pleasantly dry, toasty finish. Just a delicious, hugely drinkable amber. Always happy to find this on tap or in bottles while traveling outside of North Bay. ration (2261) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 11, 2012
Pours clear copper with a medium head. Aroma hops, crystal malts. Smooth finish. Not Bad. Beerhound (16) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JAN 22, 2003
Had this on tap while vacationing in San Francisco. Nice amber color, weak head. Malt aroma very evident, whiff of Cascade hops. Very decent malt taste, nice bitterness from the hops. Great drinking beer.

Bottle. Poured a dark orange brown with a thick lasting white head. Malty aroma, Malty flavour, but not as sweet as one would expect from the label. A lekker hop tinge and a lasting all over the tongue finish. Reid (2609) - 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. daknole (11050) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 22, 2012
GABF. Orange pour, white head. Tropical fruit, toasted grain, honey and and some nutiness make up a pretty solid offering. The finish is lightly hoppy. Fatehunter (2604) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAY 10, 2013
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. KUEric (977) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUN 17, 2014
A dark dark amber-copper beer with a minimal off white head. Flavor is heavy on wheat and grass. A fair amount of bitterness, some undertones of toasted malts.
