Sham (1844) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 2, 2006
Copper with a small head and no lacing. Rich and malty with toasted and caramel malts in the nose. Some nuts and a touch of bitter hops. The flavor mostly follows suit though bitter hops show a bit more and the malts are a touch softer. Nutty finish with a medium body.

Bright golden-amber. Huge caramel/brown sugar aroma. Sweet, slightly fruity palate. Heavy emphasis on brown sugar character. Some earthy notes from the yeast. I’m not a fan of the beer per se, but I can see what they’ve getting at. BückDich (5477) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAY 9, 2005
Sampled draught at the Mill Creek Brewpub in Walla Walla, WAbaobubba (455) - Starkville, Mississippi, USA - SEP 16, 2003
Bronze color, light head, no lacing. Nose of light PNW hops, sweet husky crystal malts and an earthy body. The flavor is very sweet with a touch of bitterness and lots of herbal hop qualities. Not traditional in any sense but it’s managable. I don’t know if I could drink a whole pint due to the sweetness.
Clear amber with a thick fine particle head. Aroma is split between european hops and caramel with a light earthiness and an even lighter bubble gum and roast. Bitterness throughout the semi-dry taste. Lingering bitterness. KingPinHead (390) - Des Moines, Washington, USA - NOV 13, 2002
Aroma is light and faintly malty-sweet...Color is a hazy copper-amber with a light head and speckled lace...Flavor is a mellow blend of lighty roasted and sweet malts, with compatibly mellow hopping...This has a nice combo of caramel and hop-dryness, which come especially into play in the finish...This has good body and balance...This does not have the most assertive flavor profile, but is well-constructed and quite pleasant.
