Malty aroma. Decent malty flavor. Not too much going on. Spicy finish. Decent but nothing memorable. improvjock (328) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 9, 2012
Bottle. Pours a copper amber with light off-white head. Aroma and flavor is malty, and a bit bready. Spicy finish. Easy drinking, but not very complex. beerguy101 (5360) - Newark, California, USA - SEP 27, 2002
Reddish brown color, small head. Roasted malts, some hoppyness. Finish is smooth. Aftertaste is crisp and slightly bitter 5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUL 11, 2005
Bottle: Deep amber, large off-white frothy head, attractive lacing, soft carbonation.   Pale malt aroma, slightly floral, but also a dash of butter.   Somewhat dirty malt profiler, a bit biscuity.   Moderate body, medium mouthfeel that is nearing the thin side.   Clean finish, but the flavor falls off quickly.   Tiz okay, somewhat light tho.

(12 oz bottle: Bottleworks in Seattle, WA) Okay, so this isnít the best red ale Iíve ever tasted, but itís still quite good. A fairly caramely and sweet malt flavor is balanced by floral, moderately bitter, lightly citrusy hoppiness. The nose isnít all that aromatic, but itís dominated by the caramely malt, plus the floral hops has moderate presence. Standard medium body, but thereís a nice creaminess and slightly oily mouthfeel for a smooth and soft palate. Medium amber and slightly hazy in appearance, the beer is covered, at least initially by an off-white and finely bubbled head. The head fades to a wide ring surrounding a few wisps in the center. Lacing is sporadic, but at least present on the glass. Not as good as the Dark (Amber) Ale, but itís definitely more than just a generic and boring American red ale.

Picked up a single 12-oz bottle at Bottleworks in Seattle. Pours a clear orange amber brew with a fast dissolving white head that leaves behind a white ring and some lacing. Aroma of caramel malt, some flowery hops, roasted nuts and a touch of green vegetables. Taste is medium bodied, lightly carbonated with a caramel malt and slight citrus zest flavor. Finish is slightly metalic, semi sweet with a caramel malt aftertaste. A little light for my favorite type of amber ales but still drinkable. mkobes (2142) - paramus, New Jersey, USA - JAN 24, 2008
Bottle. Deep copper in color with a little white head. Hoppy caramel malty aroma. Hoppy malty spicy flavor. Piney, grassy hops. Peppery notes. Sweet tasting. Medium bodied. Finish is malty. Ok.. killjoy966 (677) - Washington, USA - FEB 8, 2008
Looks "pretty". Incredibly smooth drink with an ever-so-slight touch of hops to finish. Wish this was more available on tap. riversideAK (6260) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAR 15, 2008
Poured amber with a nice beige head that lasted forever. Aroma of toasted malt and a touch of sweetness. Toasted malt in the flavor, mild caramel sweetness, a bit of metal, and light spicy hops in the finish. Quaffable, light, sessionable etc, but not a lot going on.

Sample at the brewpub. The beer pours a clear dark orange color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of malt, hops and caramel. Light-bodied with flavors of toasted malt, caramel and mild hops. The finish is sweet with a caramel aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.
