fairly aggressive pour yielded a respectable 1 1/2" head that quickly fell to a wispy film that sticks to the sides of the glass. Some sediment in the bottle and glass. Faint sweet aroma, balanced hop scent. Good balance in flavor between the initial sweetness and the floral bitter finish. Most ambers have little hop finish, this one is very nice.

Bottle from Safeway, Port Angeles; nose of grainy caramel, a little piney hoppiness with a yeasty note; orange-amber with a big beige head that laces the glass; flavor has caramel malt, hop bitterness, and some citrus; a little hops in the finish. Pretty good amber. Enniskillen (2061) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JUL 10, 2007
Amber, off white head. Caramel and hoppiness in the aroma with some floral notes. Fairly hoppy, lemon zest, floral, some caramel. Pretty good Amber. robforbes (2280) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - JUL 7, 2007
got this at the red apple in Bremerton.
pours golden with thin white head slightly cloudy and a little carbination.
smells of wood and toasted nuts.
texture is medium thickness and taste starts out bitter and then has a sweet aftertaste, nice citrus (lemon) that grabs the taste buds.
overall a nice balanced beer. Delirium (673) - Falmouth, Cornwall, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2006
Draught. Pours amber with a small white head. Aroma is a bit of piney and a little citrus hops, with maybe some sweet malt. Flavor starts with nondescript slightly sweet malt and maybe some piney hops, and finishes a little citrusy and slightly bitter. Certainly drinkable, but not too exciting.

Draft at The Upstage, PT. Pours a dark amber with a bit of tannish froth atop. Much as it pains me to knock the smaller operators of the brewing world, this is a vacant beer and there’s no way round that fact. Big bready nose with nothing else to say, and a flimsy little body with perfectly forgettable carb--not flat, not bubbly. The attack, mid-palate, and finish are all startlingly neutral. Amazingly watery for, presumably, having so many more calories than a megalager. DrunkenWeasel (224) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 16, 2006
Much like pale ale with almost no flavor or smell. A slight note of malt added to the slight hop note from the pale ale. Slightly darker than pale ale. Still crappy. leitrim65 (402) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 23, 2004
Bland and boring. Nothing stands out in this beer. Light bodied with mild hints of fruit and malt. If there were hops, I couldn’t tell. Merc (313) - Pullman, Washington, USA - JUN 28, 2002
A little too lightly hopped in my opinion. Fruity and sweet with virtually no hop presence. Creamy but boring. Gregory (357) - Pullman, Washington, USA - JUN 28, 2002
Above average amber ale. Fairly light, and crisp, very little bitterness to the beer.
