This poured a murky amber / brown, with a light tan head that diminished quickly. Slight alcohol aroma in the nose, mostly overshadowed by the malt aroma. Malty, sweet, with a slight alcohol flavor....not sure of the ABV, but i would imagine 7%? Actually rather smooth palate, and a nice overall brew. Seems much closer to a English Strong Ale to me, much heavier than a normal amber. Probably hard to find outside Oregon, but worth a try.

This appears to be a brown ale. Nice toasty head. Aroma is roasted malt. Almost like a tootsie roll. Roasted, sour flavors. Thin and watery mouthfeel. This puckers my mouth. I question the freshness of my bottle. Alcohol is felt by the end of the glass, and is rather warming. However, as a winter offering I expected a more complex brew. Maybe thats just me, but I found this to be a let down.

This beer has a deep-copper color. The big aroma and flavor are hop-dominated but not by much. Ends with a fairly dry finish.
