In the bomber bottle from John’s Market in Portland. Pours a cloudy rusty brown with a medium beige head. Lemon-like aroma. The flavor is quite tart with an incredibly harsh bitter bite at the end. At first, I wondered if something was wrong with this because the bitterness was not hop-like at all, but rather the bitterness one might expect from drinking a poison. One of those Mother-Nature-is-warning-me bitter flavors. However, as it warmed and I kept at it, I realized that the bitterness really was from hops, just not very good flavoring hops and way too many of them. Plus, I was not poisoned.

Amber ale? Hah. Murky dark orangish amber, moderate to small head, some lacing and retention. Aroma is caramel, light hops, some darker fruit, light spicing. Medium bodied, somewhat sweet, mostly not enjoyable.

This amber ale poured with a thin beige head, eliciting a musty aroma. The bottle cap was slightly loose and the flavor is very skunky, lieading me to believe that the beer is infected. Either that, or it is not a very good brew. Very citrusy and sour.

07-08 Road Trip with BikesandBeer. Had at Horsebrass Pub in Portland. Pours dark amber with a thin tan head. Nose is full of nice light malt. Taste was sweet and spicy with malt, not bad at all.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 17, 2007
From a 22-oz. bottle--Poured a hazy mahogany/chestnut hue with a nose of fruity malts and mildly piny hops. Creamy mouth feel with a citrusy mild chewy finish. Dry and crisp finish.

Enjoyed this while spending some time with my special friend Allison. The nose is dried fruit, wheat, and berries. The brew pours a murky chestnut with amber blonde highlights. The mostly lasting uber stiff & creamy bone colored head leaves fair lace. The brew has great balance and depth. No shortage of hops bitterness or citric tartness; very well done. The medium creamy body is lively. The finish feels dry and clean.

Don’t have any notes on this one. One of those thangs. Just need to fill up the box.
