Draft, live at the Crystal Ballrooom location. A hazy dark amber beer with a thin rim of off-white head. The aroma is sweet malty with distinct notes of hops, combined with caramel and hints of spices. The flavor is sweet malty with strong grassy and spicy hop notes, the spices include cinnamon, leading to a dry spicy and bitter finish.

omhper (25108) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 20, 2006
Draught at White Eagle, Portland. Hazy reddish brown. Neutral aroma. Dryish with clean mouthfeel. Sharp resiny hops that linger on into the finish. Uninspired.

Travlr (24667) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - DEC 29, 2008
No significant aroma. Flat. Tastes like sour lemons with caramel color and flavor added. Two notches above a drainpour.

fiulijn (20492) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 12, 2014
Draught at McMenamins Mill Creek, WA, 5.93% ABV
Hazy amber color. Easy Pale Ale, quite malty, with hints of citrusy hops, but spoiled by some diacetyl. Off-dry.

harrisoni (18578) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2006
On tap at The Ram Hotel, Portland. Cloudy amber with disappearing beige head. Ooh this is bad too. Some odd hop with caramel. Bit of fruit. This is bad.

I guess these days this beer wouldn’t seem quite as bold as it did when I first had it, but quality is quality nonetheless.

Slightly hazy amber color, small white head, lace. Piney, fruity hop aroma. Light to medium bodied. Slightly bready, piney flavor. Some sweetness from crystal malts. Decent APA.

2.7
brokensail (16449) - Dublin, California, USA - JUN 22, 2015
On tap @ McMenamins Barley Mill. Hazed amber colored beer with white foam. Just a bunch of cooked grain and toast. Some grass, straw, and burnt toast. Meh. The flavor is mildly bitter and grassy. A lot of bread, toast, and caramel. Odd estery quality. Not really a fan.
