Sampled on tap at the brewery during ABA Beer Tour ’07. Pours a dark ruby copper brew with a creamy off-white head that dissolves to a fine white ring. Aroma of caramel barley malt with sweet apples. Taste is medium bodied, light carbonation with a smooth and creamy texture. Flavors picked up are caramel and some toffee character. Finish is a soft and bready without much bitter aftertaste. Nice done! beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - JUN 16, 2007
Smooth malty ale that would make a great session beer in the winter months. Rich caramel flavor on the palate with a slightly earthy finish. BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - FEB 5, 2004
Clear ruby red color, darkish. Thick off-white sticky head. The aroma is lightly spicy with some caramel malts and thicker bas malts showing through. The flavor is well balanced, nice malt sweetness like candi topped with a sprinkle of PNW hops. Very nice Irish Red. SuzyGreenberg (1603) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 15, 2008

I didnt expect to like it, but it really was delicious. Not too caramelly or sweet, nice hop bite, complex but mellow. very good beer.

Nice malt/hop aroma, and a beautiful coppery color, with a small white head. Nice malt taste, with a bitey hop finish. Good stuff, and nice with the fish and chips. ClarkVV (6708) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 13, 2004
2004 draught. Thought this was an alt, it had a nice muted nutty flavor, some dusty notes, but I guess after thinking about it, there was little to no yeast apparency, no sourness. Pretty light for an EPA, hops nowhere to be found. Light roasted malt, mostly dry with some hints of caramel on the finish. Great session beer, no major problems. Medium-light body. Aroma is lightly nutty with a soft even malt. Great deep reddish-orange color with small off-white head. 11026 (1772) - Alabama, USA - FEB 18, 2006
Tap at pub. Clear deep dopper colored with a fairly loong lived off-white head. Aroma is muted malt with light earth hop notes. Medium bodied at it’s most finest. Malt, possibly caramel and melanoidin? Modest bitterness and hop flavor. Pretty decent for a non-flashy beer style. BrewDad (5328) - Olympia, Washington, USA - MAR 21, 2006
A dark amber color brew with a very strong head. A nice strong malty flavor with a tad of hops added to the aroma. This was a good brew I liked the flavor. A good easy drining brew I really could get a flavor of carmel and some off tatse that where very good.

On tap at Raccoon Lodge. Pours clear dark copper with an off-white head that produces sheets of lace. Softly sweet an peaty nose. Medium-light body and light carbonation. Taste of apples, bread, leather, citrus. A bit of sourness on the finish.
