COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A 2001 Silver Medal Winner at the North American Brewers' Association competition. A deep-copper colored medium - bodied ale. Its fresh flavor is smooth and carefully balanced with a nice mellowness and hint of caramel malt balanced by medium hop bitterness. It is an all malt beer that is naturally carbonated. A very drinkable beer all on its own and pairs well with all kinds of foods.

12 oz bottle. Pours a clear copper, with zero head. Aroma is malt and a bit nutty. Flavor...is very bland, in fact, there is something that is just not quit right. The mouthfeel is very thin, just about watery. This is not a good beer.

Cletus (6368) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 16, 2008
Bottle courtesy of rustychiles. Pours copper with a creamy white head. Smells earthy with a hint of sweet malt. Tastes of dry malt, some spice, a touch of earthiness on the finish.

tap at the brewpub - Pours mostly clear amber and smells of caramel malt and a touch of fruit. The flavor is a good combination of caramel malt, mild hops, and those light fruit notes. It has a light to medium body and a lightly bitter finish.

12 OZ bottle poured in a glass. Hop flavors very subdued.Short head. Tasted overly sweet. Was easy to drink. I would try it again but I would not go out of my way to buy.

Poured copper from the tap with a thick head of white foam. Faint caramel and hop notes. Malty and balanced. One of the few Oak Creek beers I’d drink again.

bitbucket (2166) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - JUN 22, 2008
Bottle. Pours clear amber with a thin and fading off-white head. Light aroma with some toffee and pine, similar taste. Pretty unremarkable. It’s sort of like their Nut Brown, but add some hops and take away some malty flavor.

after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - JUN 16, 2008
12-oz. Thanks, BitBucket! Pours dark burnished amber with a thin, sloppy grayish rim of foam. Sweetish, piney nose. Medium, slightly creamy body. Mid-palate very close to neutral. Some caramel, some brown bread, some sweet pine needle hop...but not much of any of those things, really. Neutral finish. Too polite to stake a claim for itself.

Aubrey (3516) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - MAY 31, 2008
Murky and dark amber with floaties. Sweet malt base (caramel, toast, light nuts). Earthy, bready, kind of yeasty and slightly musty. Mild bitterness. OK, but boring.

2.3
Carl99Fan (187) - Suwanee, Georgia, USA - APR 13, 2008
Pours an amber color with a healthy head. Did not enjoy at all. Too sweet..something was off.

2.7
Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAR 27, 2008
Bottle. Pours a dark amber with a minimal head. Nose is brown sugar and malt. Palate is pretty much the same… sweet likr honey. Thin mouth feel and minimal lacing. Meh, ok I guess. Better than the mass produced crap any day of the week.
