Draught. This was not my favorite McMenamin’s brew. It would be a good seasonal though. Reid (2605) - Salem, Oregon, USA - MAY 18, 2012

Aroma: Nice malt with amount of hops in the nose.
Appearance: Orange/amber in color, clear with a light head.
Flavor: Nice amber malt with a light fruit like hops flavor.
Palate: Dry Finish, with a Great Mouthfeel.
Overall: A very nice amber.
On tap. Visited more than one McMenamins and tasted more than one of thier brews. Unfortunately I do not remember the details so I am entering this primarily as a record of having tasted them. Hopefully I will make it back out to a McMenamins again someday and get better notes. riversideAK (6261) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - NOV 27, 2008
On nitro at Dad Watsons. Hazy orange pour with a nice creamy head. The nose is fruity with light hops and some biscuity malts. Light and fruity with a floral finish. Creamy and smooth.

Had on tap with a light orangey color and a coffee that tingles the nose. Very dry in taste. Not what I expected in an amber ale, but a clean finish and is worth a try. motelpogo (7704) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - SEP 10, 2004
on tap in eugene. uninspiring amber, light toffee but a little bit of corn syrup lurking there duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2004
Tap, McMenamins, Eugene, Oregon. Amber, found a bit yeasty. Caramel, salty, dry and grainy, not too exciting, but at least it was dry. beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - MAY 11, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2005 When i got this glass I thought the waiter was joking that it was an amber, and im still skeptical. Looks like a hefeweizen, orange and cloudy with a small white head. Smelled Fruity, sweet, and hoppy. Tasted like an IPA, started sweet then the hops made it very bitter, kinda lousy amber but a decent IPA taste.
