Copper in color and big in taste, this robust well-balanced Amber Ale is the perfect yard work companion. Broken Rake’s noble hop finish elegantly balances the assertive malt overtones, making it a great way to welcome Autumn.

Random beer randomly selected at El Bait shop this evening. Pours a reddish amber color with some head, but it went away really quickly/ Aroma was a little malty sweet with some soapy notes, not really much hops, per say. Flavor was moderetley hoppy, in that the hops were present but they were fairly mild. There was some sweet caramel. hmmm, eh.

Brown body with some red notes a large white crown floates on top with phenomenal retention. Sour malty, soapy, with some hop aroma. Aroma is sour and unpleasant. Sour bile flavour built on mild nutty malts. Brew has a bitter finish with a long lasting coffee after taste. Piney hops are detectable. Why does this taste like soap? Ugggg…. I can drink this but it’s not all that great in fact I don’t really like it."

Bottle as shown. Pours a clear amber with a medium off white head that diminishes quickly to nothing. The aroma is caramel malt with licorice and raisin. Thin mouthfeel with a dry malt flavor with caramel and a nice sweet finish. Easy to drink, hiding the alcohol well, a good amber ale from Pyramid

Unless we got a bum rake, I don’t think this one is worthy a 68 percent style. It was kinda like a weak brown with a lager aftertaste. Eh.

Copper pour with medium sized head. Caramel and nutty notes in the aroma. Flavor reminded me a lot of a brown ale, not too bad.

hobbersr (690) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 22, 2009
Pours a nice red/copper colour with an off white head. Aroma is sweet, lots of caramel coming through, some dry leaves, some grain, floral notes some spice and soft fruit coming through as well. Tastes pretty malty, this is defiantly a malt first PNW brew. Soft fruits, caramel, apple, toffee, dried leaves, black pepper, nuttiness, and some musty notes. Sticky on the palate, a little heavy. I do appreciate the balance of hops, balance of sweetness, but this beer is not blowing me away.
