Are you kidding me? This beer is fabulous! Nice sour malt aroma. Red amber in color with quick head. Filtered. The flavor is fantastic - and all over the place - sweet cherries, wheat and nuts, balanced with PacNW hops. Easy drinking with a nice crisp apple finish. Great brew! props to Andre’! philbertk (1873) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 1, 2010

This has been one of my favorite beers for a long time. Great malty flavors and hopped just the right amount to make this beer scream for another taste. baobubba (454) - Starkville, Mississippi, USA - NOV 5, 2002
Aroma is slightly malty (caramel) with a lot of hops spicyness. Begining is sweet and finish bitter. Bitterness does not last very long. Nice amber color with a thin head. Maritime also has this dry hopped at the brewery - which makes the hops more hoppy, and me more happy. Arrrh. Ibrew2or3 (8808) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 1, 2008
On tap @ the brewpub. Pours clear copper with off white head and some nice lacing. It has a pleasing malty aroma of roasted malts, caramel and nuttiness to go along with a faint hint of buttered bread. The taste has a nice mix of roasted malts, caramel and mild nuttiness. I also get some sweet molasses and a hint of pine hops wondering around deep in the background. Tasty malty brew with enough roasted malt dryness and mild hoppiness to keep the varied malty sweetness in check.

Tap @ Jolly Roger Taproom. Nice, colorful, dark orange appearance with an ivory head. Slightly roasty, nutty, caramel malty, slightly piney hoppy nose. A bit nutty, toffee, caramel malty, a but piney hoppy flavor. Great amber ale. beastiefan2k (4068) - HdG (past: NYC, KS, Rain City), Maryland, USA - SEP 27, 2014
Sampler, lots of lacing, burnt orange red color. Aroma is a bit spicy, burnt caramel, moderate strength. Flavor is much lighter but flavorful crisp woodsy feel.Andrew196 (1978) - Katy, Texas, USA - FEB 17, 2003

Very good for a beer that is allegedly their best seller. It had a red-orange appearance under an average sized head. This medium bodied beer was crispy on the tongue and had a unique plum taste to it...slightly bitter finish....not bad. harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - MAR 20, 2003
This was the last of the 3 I tried while visiting here. The appearance was very dark for a an amber, with an average creamy head. The taste is kind of peppery with ints of clove and ginger and cinnamon. A slightly sweet somewhat bitter aftertaste. This was very good, but again a mood beer.

On tap at Jolly Roger (Brewery). Aroma is light, with sweet malt forward and breadlike notes; medium hop aroma. Beer is clear, copper-gold, with a well retained white head. Flavor is slightly hop forward, but with good maltiness, nutty, with some corn-like notes. has medium body, low carbonation texture, and a slightly resiny aftertaste. Overall, fairly good and to style, but the resiny touches and other perceived non-fermentables don’t make it very easy drinking.
