On tap at the Old Market. This brew ended up being the best of the brews on the taster tray. Pours a darker red with a medium off-white head. Lots of fruity hops in the aroma, fairly aromatic. Taste starts with a light fruitiness to the very lightly sweet malts. This brew finishes with a nicely balanced floral/citrus hop finish. Not overly bitter, but a good dose of hops makes this a good refreshing brew. harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - FEB 19, 2006
Milder than I would have preferred, but nicely done in the same sense, quite well balanced. Malty, and full of rich fruitiness, perhaps some spearmint, that I am sure has something to do with a hop characteristic that I just cannot put my finger on. Definitely quenches the thirst. troopie (2439) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - NOV 9, 2007
Draught. Poured deep red, like a red wine with a lasting beige head. Much lacing. Hoppy aroma with some citrus. Hoppy and peppery flavour, with a fine bitterish finish. zoucrew102 (2104) - - SEP 22, 2013
Tap at old market, portland, or. Malty aroma with toffee and caramel notes. Pours a dark ruby red with very little head and no lacing. Malty to start with toffee and caramel flavors. Finishes dry and slightly bitter with a hint of chocolate.

A decent red, better then most of their beers. Pours a very nice deep red with a tan head. Not much of any smell, a tad nutty. Taste is smooth and malty, with caramel and a nutty finish. Had on tap at the brewery.

Good hop aroma. Nice balance between sweetness and hops. Hop aftertaste. Don't know if this fits the style correctly. microdyke (360) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 22, 2003
A brown color with a small head. The flavor was typical of an amber...some citrus, hops and a little bitterness. BeaverBrown (245) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 15, 2003
Has a reddish brown color with a small tan head. Smells and taste like hops and caramel.
