22 oz bottle from Roth’s Keizer store. $4.99
Fine looking clear amber ale with a lovelly big fluffy creme coloured head.
Substantial hoppy aroma on this oneresiny and citric..caramel malts in the background.
Flavour is well balanced with a thick ,toffee,fudgey malt being over run by a red grapefruit,floral hoppyness.
Very good mouthfeel..round and full yet easy.
Overall and excellent and drinkable amber. BK7 (773) - Turner, Oregon, USA - NOV 1, 2011
On tap. A nice and hoppy Amber Ale. Sweet caramel base mixed with some citrus. Light bitter finish. Very smooth. nickd717 (4691) - San Francisco, California, USA - SEP 16, 2011
Bottle shared at a tasting. Clear reddish in color with a small off-white head. Resinous hop aroma with big burnt caramel aroma with some earthy notes. Roasty caramel flavors with average resinous hops, well balanced. Medium body with medium-soft carbonation. Nice and drinkable. This beer is certainly near the top of its style. Would revisit if I weren’t a ticker.

A copper amber ale with a thin off white head. In aroma, light caramel malt. Inmouth, a nutty malt withburned caramel notes, oily mouthfeel, very roasty, not bad. On tap at PDX Concourse E location, July 31 2011. Drink4Satan (677) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 26, 2011
Great clarity, colour intensity and head retention on this one, as well as concentric rings of lacing. The aroma is fresh, floral hops, butterscotch, doughy malts, and straightforward light maltiness. An earthier hop presence shines in the flavour along with nutty malt impressions (Munich malt, perhaps), a whisper of cocoa and a hint of old coffee. Straightforward beer style done right. Full-bodied for the style with gentle yet, tingly carbonation and a medium/long palate duration. This is proof that an organic ale can stand up to the rest of ’em. As this is a year-round beer, I must imagine that being organic, the spec on the malts will have slightly more variation in their specs, which might in turn mean the recipe must be tweaked with each brew to compensate, making it a bitch to brew (or not). I give Laurelwood tons of credit for helping lift doubts about beers produced from organic malts. I doubt the hops are organic, but if they are, even more kudos. Goes great with simple pub food and a go to session beer for me when living the dream of the 90’s in Portlandia. This was my favorite amber and still may be. Rate to style, haters! marcus (10227) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 17, 2011
Pours orange copper with a thick beige head and a fruity aroma. There is a hearty caramel malt flavor with a good bitter hop finish. Taste a bit like an IPA. TBone (17532) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 10, 2011

Public House & Brewery, Portland (ABV 6.1%)
Clear deep amber color, small off-white head. Light aroma of caramel and fruits. Medium-bodied. Nutty, malty flavors. Citrusy hoppy finish.
Reddish copper pour from bottle with a thin white head. Bread and malt taste, with some light caramel thrown in. Clean tasting and very decent.
