Aroma is beery but this beer is good. I drank a six pack perfectly timed with the right friends over a week of house visitors in Ashland, Oregon and let me tell you it was great! blipp (9590) - La Mesa, California, USA - SEP 21, 2013
Draft. Pours golden amber with a white head. Sweet malts, some fruity hops, and light citric notes. Pretty good. Nocturne (1992) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2013
On tap at Horse Brass, PDX. Dark copper shade with a creamy head. Nicely hoppy in the aroma. Has a really strong malty spine with lots of deep caramel tones. Very solid amber, a bit "cleaner" than some of the others I’ve had and close to an ESB in some respects. Fatehunter (2603) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JUL 1, 2013
Poured a finger of head on a red body.
The aroma is bright citrus and pine.
The taste is moderately bitter throughout with a lemony bitter/sweetness to balance it.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
It is a nicely hopped up red ale. maxwelldeux (4374) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - JUN 20, 2013
Draught in a flight. Pours a clear amber color with some tinges of red in it. Nose is actually a little hoppy with floral elements coming from it. Taste, on the other hand, is slightly sweet and much more malt forward. Quite smooth on the palate, too.

Tap at Solera, Parkdale, 24/05/13.
Clear golden amber with reddish hues, thin off white head.
Nose is pine, bitter orange, hops.
Taste comprises hops, orange pith, light grapefruit, grass.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, hop bitterness in the finish.
A tasty number. Dogbrick (13522) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 26, 2013
Sample at the Laurelwood Public House at PDX. The beer is a clear copper color with a medium white head that dissipates quickly. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, caramel and hops. Medium body with flavors of caramel malt, toffee and hops. The finish is sweet with a malty aftertaste. Decent overall. Fantabox (18) - USA - MAY 19, 2013
Medium copper color. Off-white head. Mild toffee aroma and taste. Nicely laced head. Low ABV, which makes it nice for a higher level session type beer. A favorite.

Appearance: clear dark copper, with a generous, creamy two fingers of tan head and decent lacing. Aroma: caramel, toffee, a bit of brown sugar, and some earthy, mellow hops. Taste: as the aroma indicated, almost exactly. Finish: smooth and slightly slick, with lingering caramel sweetness vying for balance with the hops. Notes: A fine and drinkable beer, if a bit forgettable. If it was a tad maltier, you’d think it was a hoppy Irish Red.

Slightly hazy deep red body that throws up a tall off-white head.
Aroma contains sweet malts with a touch of light hops.
The flavor is mostly balanced that drifts towards some dry bitterness as it reaches the finish.
I’ve had better amber ales, but there are no flaws here; just a bit average.
