Rating #2102- 2015.09.28 #CraftTakesSeattle Day 5, Beer 204 – Draught at Brewpub - Lunch before the plane ride home.Clear amber pour, deep copper/red with a weak tan head, little retention. Aroma was nutty, and sweet malts. Taste was very grainy and bland. Not extremely hoppy at all, a lot of malt and grain in the taste, but fairly smooth on the finish. A drinkable PA, but nothing that stands out.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear golden amber with a thin white head. Soft citrus on the nose, a touch of malt, somewhat soapy. Medium bodied, malt, a bit more of that soapy quality. Spicy and earthy, malt and a bit of bitterness into the finish, soft malt, citrus.

Draft pour at the Elliott Bay Lake City Way pub. Pours a dark copper color with a fizzy head. Bready malts on the aroma. Smooth drinking bready malt forward flavor with a more dry cracker finish. Tasty beer that’s for sure. A bit of a nutty finish as well. Good beer overall.

Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Reviewed from notes. Bar pour yields no head and had a hazy reddish color with barely any lacing. The smell had a earthy / grassy / herbal / baked caramel bread. Interesting, to say the least. The taste was basically the same. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was somewhat there and was good for the style and to me. Overall, I say it was a decent amber that I might have again.

onceblind (9662) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Clear lightish amber under a thin cap. Nose is a bit more grassy forward than I would imagine with semi bitter earthy nuttiness. Medium palate with a pretty one dimensional flavor profile of light amberish malts and a earthy bitter grassy note.

maxwelldeux (4374) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - FEB 27, 2014
Draught in a flight at the brewpub. Pours a clear amber color. Nose has some caramel and bread elements in there. Taste ends up being slightly sweet, and heavily laden with bread. OK, but nothing terribly special.

ACHops (1584) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 2, 2013
On tap @ Lake City brewpub. Pours dark reddish amber with thick off white head. Aroma is mild caramel malt. Taste is clean light caramel malt with sharply bitter piney aromatic hops. Nice tasty pale, easy drinking.
