Bottle. Pours a copper amber with medium white head. Flavor is sweet toffee with a slight bitter finish. very light and refreshing. Great for summer!

Savvy1982 (1706) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 2, 2012
Bottle. Pours hazy deep copper, thick cream coloured head, great lacing. Nose is grass, citrus, tropical fruit, and light sweetness. Flavours of spicy hops, bitter melon, light caramel. Meh, this is decent enough, but hardly blowing me away.

Draft. A nice beer, pours crisp copper. Spring spice and round bittering hops. Tasty

Hazy orange-amber pour with a thin white head. The nose is light and a touch spicy. A hint of soft fruit and orange peel along with a bit of sweet malt. Light and fairly quaffable brew although it’s fairly forgettable. Simple though.

vidacafe (10) - Seaside, Oregon, USA - JUN 24, 2012
Good Oregonian ale, odd aroma, not bad but strange; pretty hoppy for an ale (which I personally enjoy) but works well with the overall flavor.

Clear copper. Toffee. Not bad but not much to this, very light. Medium head. Grassy.

Pours a reddish amber minimal head, it has a good amount of crisp carbonation, malt is prominent but a lot of bitterness, alcohol is not too noticeable.

mintzmeet (457) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 13, 2012
Beautiful red amber color, weak head. medium alcoholic nose. Strong taste (radiant). Quite a bite on this one. Almost burnt malt flavor, but might be hops which are present in the middle but fade near the end to a breadiness.

Medium golden, minimal, disappearing head, with only a slight aroma consisting of light malt. Nothing special there, and nothing very special special with the flavor which is just a little hop forward, but overall very balanced. The malt background is pretty basic. Finishes light it starts; slightly hoppy bitterness lingering. A good beer with spicey food when you want something clean and refreshing, but otherwise not something would pull off the shelf again.

bomber. decent daily drinker pale ale i guess. nothing that stands out just fresh and smooth.
