Location: On tap at Hyatt House in Redmond, WAbrucebruce81 (391) - GUAM - JUL 10, 2016
Aroma: Earth, leaves, grainy / dusty malts
Taste: Dirty / earthy malts with a great grain build and the right amount of vegetal bitterness
Palate: Murky but crisp
Overall: A great balance of earthy, malty, bitter...one of the more unique / stylized but palatable Amber Ales
This was smooth and had a mahogany flavor. It was smooth and finished so well, did I say it was smooth? This was a very good beer.

12oz from tap at a lake-side bar. Flavorful and well balanced. An easy beer to drink a few of without getting tired lf the taste. teamsale (273) - Washington, USA - MAY 31, 2016
On tap. Pours a cloudy amber with a thin tan head, good lacing. Smells and tastes of nutty malt that’s a bit sweet with a superb mildly bitter finish. Lasting aftertaste. sebastokrator (116) - - MAY 29, 2016
Dark copper pour. Smells of caramel and bready malt. Taste follows the nose with just a hint of hops. A solid amber.

Pretty good Amber, especially since I’m not a big fan of the style. On the sweet side, pours...well...amber, and has a strangely acidic finish. Creamy mouthfeel. jvhemert (397) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 1, 2016
Balance of aroma not pleasant; quite a lot of fizz. But too sour to work with the sweetness. steve51864 (2) - HONG KONG - APR 9, 2016 does not count
A good friend of mine introduced me to this nectar more than a decade ago in Seattle, Washington. It defined for me what craft beer could be, and got me to realize that the watery lagers were just flavored water. Every time I transit in Seattle airport, I will make sure to meet with a friend to drive me to a nearby diner for this tap. solidfunk (8838) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JAN 2, 2016
Easy drinking and very subtle and well defined. Hazy amber pour with great head and lacing. Some rusty malt and light citrus. Good balance. Light tangy finish. Tap at Africa Lounge. RedSox2004 (1869) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - OCT 4, 2015
UPDATED: OCT 17, 2015 Cloudy orange amber with a creamy off-white head and moderate lace. Light aromas of cereal and grass. Taste is similar, mostly grassy hop with bitterness coming late. Medium body and carbonation, blah mouthfeel and a slightly grainy finish.
