Recommended to me by a fellow drinker, this didn’t pass my expectations. I didn’t appreciate the moldy aroma along with the stale aftertaste. Could be old from what I experienced but I will probably not be willing to crack open another one of these for a while.

This beer is much better in my opinion than their IPA. This has allot of flavor and is fresh and enjoyable.

poured from a bottle. able to get a decent white head that quickly melted back into the beer. Nice amber color. The taste was good but with no bite and the flavor didnt last long at all. I found this drinkable but forgettable.

(Flying Saucer Draught Emporium, Memphis, TN) Clear and copper. Smells spicy and slightly fruity. Taste is frtuier than the smell with a well balanced bitterness in the finish. Palte is watery but smooth. Very drinkable and satifying.

Bottle. Pours a light red with a hint of gold to it. Very nice head. Aroma is of malt, very sweet with a hint of alcohol. Body is very thin. Flavor is sweet malt, almost no hops very smooth. Bit of alcohol at the end. Decent brew. Not bad, not great. Good price. Very fresh.

Wow has this beer changed. I remember loving this beer "back in the day" when it was in the short bottles and brewed in WA. The color and taste are the big changes, it used to be a very orange amber now a yellow amber. Taste used to be a good balance of caramel malts and west coast hops, now it has a musty hop taste. It has been awhile since I tried the tall bottle version, I had forgotten how bad this beer has fallen. RIP.
