22. Pours a murky, deeply burnished dark amber with a loose off-white head that fades quickly to sloppy bubbles and frosty lacing. Nice tangy oranges and caramel nose, really a good splash of hop in this one, for an amber. Creamy medium body, plenty of lively carb. Caramel, toast, nut, biscuit, and oranges on the mid-palate, pretty much a spot-on amber IMO. Lingering citric and doughy finish. Good little effort. Miksu (5053) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JAN 10, 2010
Bottled. Amber color with creamy head, good lacing. Lemony, nutty and toffeish aroma with fruity rogue yeast and lemony-fruity hops. Lemon, toffee, berries and firm fruity bitterness in the flavor. Tasty well made beer, reminds Brutal Bitter. Bockyhorsey (2627) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JAN 2, 2010
Shared with brothe and sister in law as the year 2009 faded away and 2010 arrived. Had a good citrus aroma and flavor with a syrupy texture on the palate. Held our glasses to the heavens and said cheers to Wendy who was taken by the Lord in 09. So there was you can say a tear in my beer when I had this one.

Note to mods: the Eugene Sesquicentennial Ale is not an Amber Ale. This is definitely an American Pale Ale. Pours hazy goldenrod. Nose is some hoppage. Flavor is a balance of crisp maltiness and Wilamette Hops. Finishes dry and clean. dnlsartin (80) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 26, 2009
Dusty orange in color. Fruity, hoppy aroma. Honey, citrus, pear, field grass, and copper penny. A tangy worcestershire, baked apple, and malty presence.

Hazy amber color. Pleasant ale, with good caramel flavor and good hopping; unfortunately there is a light veggie and apple touch too, that is suspicious.
A nice fresh hop aroma on the initial pour that quickly dissipates. very nice amber color with an off white head that quickly goes away as well. not a very hoppy taste but has a nice malty finish. All those Oregon ingredients make it delicious, although more Oregon hops wouldn’t hurt. douglas88 (9571) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 26, 2009
22 ounce bottle thanks to BrewDad. Pours a dark golden color with a medium white head. A nice aroma; mild hops,earthy and fresh, some rich caramel and the ever present Rogue Pac-Man yeast. The flavor is nice; smooth and rich caramel,earthy pac-nw hops, sort of dry and quite flavorful. Nice. A really nice amber. bu11zeye (13140) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - NOV 17, 2009
( 22oz bottle, courtesy of AmEricanbrew ) Pours a clear golden body with a small white head. Aroma of florals, nuts, caramel, and orange. Flavor of hops (grass, herbal) and caramel malt with a bitter finish. thirdeye11 (6162) - Dallas, Texas, USA - NOV 13, 2009
( 22oz bottle thanks to AmEricanbrew) Pours opaque orange-yellow. Nose of honey and light citrus hops. Taste of orange blossom honey, a little hoppy, finishes sweet and has a thick body.
