Draft at the brewpub. Clear amber in colour with medium carbonation. Simple but pleasant aromas of bread dough and orchard fruit. Similar bread dough and fruit on the palate, but with the dough character coming through with more intensity and blending with a mild earthy hop note. Mellow and medium bodied.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear amber color with a medium white head. A big sweet floral and caramel nose. The flavor is toasted malts, banana esters, a bit bitter. Solid.

This will for sure be a memorable beer for me. Celebrating the wedding of a good friend next to beautiful Mount Hood. We met 10 years ago, and it’s been many great times. Poured at the local ski lodge. Twice. Maybe three times. Clear copper pour with an active bubble head. Caramel and short spice aroma. Flavor is matching. Easy drinking, malt forward amber. Very nice, and huge congrats to Katie and Chris.

Draught at the brewpub
Dark amber to mahogany color with compact head. Caramel brew, with pleasant mild sweetness; compared to most Amber Ales, this one expresses some better malt and a hint of fruity hops, while in the final there is some roasted nut.
Nice.

Draft. Copper beer with a dark cream head. Malt aroma. Malt and light caramel flavor. Medium bodied. Malt and light caramel lingers with light earthiness.

PorterPounder (8268) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 12, 2012
Government Camp, Or - on tap at the brewpub. Medium amber pour, off-white head, nice lacing. Aroma has some caramel accents, a touch of pine. Flavor is solid with some nutty notes, a touch of citrus. Thick enough mouthfeel. Decent.

Dogbrick (13751) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 16, 2010
Sample at the brewpub. This beer is a dark amber color with a medium thin light beige head that dissipates to an outer ring quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of mild hops and malt. Light body with flavors of toasted malt and hops, along with a touch of citrus. The finish is short and malty with a short-lived hops aftertaste. Barely average overall.

Had this on tap at the Ice Axe Grill at Government Camp, OR. Colour... well.... amber. Nose... Not much, save for some malt and a faint bit o’ hops. Palate... rather dull, grainy, blah-ish malt, and where’d the hops go?? Had a beer aficionado friend with me and had him try to see if my palate was "off-line" and he concurred with my tasting notes.
